X-MEN: APOCALYPSE – “An Adventure That Will Take You Everywhere”
Will the X-MEN win the war against the powerful APOCALYPSE?
It’s definitely the year for Marvel. ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘, like the other Marvel films released so far, will blow you away with mind-blowing action and adventure.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ is the fourth movie that director Bryan Singer has served up to us with a unique finesse that you will definitely appreciate.
The film has a great all-star cast starring: James McAvoy (Professor Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique/Raven), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse/ Sabah Nur), Nicholas Hoult (The Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Lucas Till (Alex Summers/Havok), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Alexandra Shipp (Storm) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke). There’s also a cameo appearance from Hugh Jackman (Wolverine).
The X-Men are tasked with their biggest challenge as they face Apocalypse/Sabah Nur. He was the world’s most powerful mutant, who ruled the world of ancient Egypt before being trapped under his pyramid for centuries.
This film is set ten years after ‘Days of Future Past‘, (once everything was reset) and Apocalypse is not your usual run of the mill bad guy.
He awakens in 1983 after Moira MacTaggert discovers a cult worshipping him. He is very displeased with how the world has turned out, believing that in his absence humanity has lost its way. As such, he plans to take over the world and destroy the human race.
Singer gives us a treat of characters, each getting their moment to show you the extent of their powers and abilities. However, it was definitely Quicksilver who stole the show with his humour, quirkiness and of course his powers. He will literally dazzle you when he gets into action.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ unquestionably takes the prize for entertainment with its impressive CG-enhanced action.
It has a ‘Mummy‘/Indiana Jones kind of feel that serves to enhance the exhilarating experience. You will also most certainly enjoy the trip to the 80’s it takes you on with the very cool music, the vibrant clothes, film references and even the food.
It’s an all round fantastic film that will have your eyes glued to the screen.
