For a while there, it looked like M. Night Shyamalan was on the verge of a major comeback. Two years ago, there was a lot of buzz about the film Split. Not only was Split a legitimately thrilling and disturbing film but major buzz was generated when it was discovered the film was a sequel to one of his early hits Unbreakable starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. To no surprise, a follow-up film was announced and now you have the finale of the Eastrail 177 Trilogy: Glass, which had many people excited going in but you’ll likely be disappointed heading out.
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.
