Movie Review: Watch ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ for Bryan Singer’s direction!
It’s been raining superhero movies! While ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ failed to live up to the expectations, ‘Captain America: Civil War’ was liked by all. And now, it’s time to find out whether the ninth installment of the ‘X-Men’ series, ‘X Men: Apocalypse’ has all the ingredients to make it a perfect superhero movie…

Star Cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters and Kodi Smit-McPhee

Director: Bryan Singer

Producer: Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer and Hutch Parker

Claps For: Visual Effects, Background Score and Direction

Slaps For: Predictable storyline

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: The world’s first and most powerful mutant wakes up from a sleep over hundreds of years to find an Earth that is not being rules according to his vision. He sets on a mission to destroy the world, in order to re-build it all with the help of four mutants, including Magneto, who would act as his Four Horsemen.

However, his plans get thwarted by the X-Men, headed by Professor X.

Performances: Despite having good actors on-board, the script of the movie does not let any of them give their best. However, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy manage to shine in their roles. Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne and Sophie Turner are used as mere eye-candies.

Oscar Isaac has done a fine job as ‘Apocalypse’ but fails to invoke fear, thanks to the predictable script.

Evan Peters and Kodi Smit-McPhee provide the much-needed humor and are a great fun to watch!

Direction: It is the direction by Bryan Singer (who has previously directed ‘X-Men’, ‘X2’ and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’) that keeps you glued to your seats despite a very predictable storyline. It is the script which lacks the magic of the previous ‘X-Men’ flicks- be it the thrill or the love-hate relationship between Professor X and Magneto.

Like any other superhero movie, Visual Effects play an important part in the movie and makes it worth every penny. The editing could have been better. And as sad as it might sound- the Wolverine cameo fails to be exceptional and worth applauses!

If you want to get answers about how Charles Xaviers lost his hair, and a lot more regarding the series, then watch this one.

Overall, the movie is an entertainer, but not something you would watch again and again (like the previous flicks from the series).

Combo-On-Offer: Action + VFX + Humor

Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for being an entertaining flick. Watch it if you are a fan of the series!
