Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: Bryan Singer

It seems like 'Days of the future past' came out last month; and yet another X-Men movie hits the theatres.
10 minutes into the movie, one simply can't decipher when is the movie based - Is it a sequel to 'First Class'? Or is it based after Logan's stint back in time in 'Days of the future past'? Or was that a pseudo reality? Sadly, it is a bit too much to digest, or maybe I just don't care anymore; But, yet again, I find myself in the front row, at 9 in the morning, on the first day itself.

This time out, the plot rotates around Professor X, who leads his X-men to war against the immortal Apocalypse, who is hell bent to 'cleanse' the world by destroying mankind (Surprise surprise). Add onto that a fair share of fancy new Mutants showcasing their prowess, along-with a more than decent package of intense one-liners, action, & humour.

One of the key highlights of X-MEN APOCALYPSE, is the minuscule screen time by an all favourite 'hero', which is worth rooting for; While you also get to witness some insight into the past of some legendary characters.

At the end of it all, the movie is a bit of a mess, but a reasonably entertaining one for which I give 3 Shors on 5.
There are some good moments to be found, but there are couple sequences that would make you whip your phone out; Reason enough to keep it from being great. Cheers.
