I am a huge fan of the X-Men movie series but there where some faults in this one that doesn’t make sense with the first ones coming out several years ago.
So Apocalypse takes us back to the 80’s and we see some XMen at a young age when they first started and some being recruited as a “horsemen” for an old God who recently woken up after being asleep for 5000 years or so. He makes their powers stronger. And this God names is Apocalypse and he isn’t happy about the fact people forgot about him and not worshiping anymore so what does he do? He recruits 4 people who can be easily controlled, who lost something and they are usually being called the horsemen. So now it’s up to the X-Men to stop this creature. But he is strong so how do they stop him?
We see a young Jean Grey – before she could control her powers, a young Cyclops – being Jeans only friend and also, we get to see a young Kurt Wagner and he joined the X-Men. And it’s here nothing makes sense. Kurt Wagner was introduced in earlier X-Men movies and then Jean and Kurt didn’t know each other. So is there a story that hasn’t been told? I know I haven’t read the comics but for us who didn’t, for us this part don’t make sense.
Over all, X Men: Apocalypse is good. Got some cool effect but somehow – that’s about it. Feels like they are pumping the franchise for money and they lost what X-Men used to be.
