WARNING: The following review contains spoilers, I’m telling you now so you don’t pretend to be outraged later.
You know for a movie that was budgeted at almost $200 Million Dollars, you think they would have spent that money on better CGI effects and save money on poor actors and writers. However, I’m going to take a wild guess that most of it went to keep a certain Hunger Games star happy and boy did it show.
X-Men: Apocalypse is a jumbled mess of a movie where you will find yourself questioning many creative decisions that went into this film. Characters motivations are pretty poorly explained or are not explained at all. The film doesn’t even bother to explain how the powers of the heroes and the villains make a lick of sense. Weaker actors in this film are given little to no speaking roles to cover their inability to be believable and the actors who are good try their best to work with some of the worst dialogue in recent memory. Now there are a few characters in this film that manage to shine bright and almost steal the show. Their performances prevent this movie from being downright awful however it isn’t to counteract the poor writing and blatant blue screen effects that you shouldn’t have to sit through for a quarter of a billion dollar movie. X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t terrible but simply isn’t good enough to get you and your friends excited to see any more X-Men movies going forward.
