Storyline

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. Written by 20th Century Fox

Trivia

Nightcrawler and Cyclops' heights are almost opposite heights to their comic counterparts. Kodi Smit-McPhee is 6'1" tall, while his character Nightcrawler is 5'9". Tye Sheridan is 5'8" tall, while his character Cyclops is 6'2". Ironically, Alan Cumming and James Marsden, who played the older Nightcrawler, and older Cyclops in the original timeline, are both 5'10" tall. See more »

Goofs

When Apocalypse collects the information of the current world from TV, an Israeli army 155 mm artillery howitzer is seen firing a shell. In 1983 there was a war between Israel and Lebanon, however, this specific model was not in service until the mid 90's, plus the concrete slab on the left reads "Israel 2006" (in Hebrew). The footage is probably from the 2006 2nd Lebanon war. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charles Xavier: Mutants: born with extraordinary abilities, and yet still, they are children stumbling in the dark, searching for guidance. A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world.

User Reviews

 
X-men Apocalypse was overall a good film.
9 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Unlike a lot of the critics, I feel most of the characters were pretty good. The fight scenes were fun and the mutant abilities were pretty cool. The weaker part of the film was it's plot, It was too generic and the battle inside of Charles's head was really confusing.

The x-men is beginning to feel too repetitive and the timeline is very confusing. My score for X-men Apocalypse is: 7/10
