X-Men: Apocalypse



In 1983, the first mutant the world ever saw comes back to life, a powerful creature who ruled ancient Egypt and has been entombed ever since his worshippers betrayed him. The third film in the series that introduced younger versions of beloved mutants suffers from overfamiliarity and a fiery showdown, in 3D, with Oscar Isaac’s towering villain, that goes on forever. Still, Bryan Singer juggles a lot of characters quite well and has an excellent cast. The somber tone is enlivened by 1980s touches, especially in a cool time-freeze scene.

2016-U.S. 144 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Bryan Singer. Cast: James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Erik Lensherr/Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/Mystique), Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne… Sophie Turner. Cameos: Hugh Jackman, Stan Lee.

Trivia: Idris Elba and Tom Hardy were allegedly considered for the part of Apocalypse. Followed by Logan (2017) and Dark Phoenix (2019).
