x-men: apocalypse

The story goes like this: 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.

X-Men: Apocalypse is of action, adventure, sci-fi, and fantasy genre, which runs for approximately 144 minutes. It's Rated PG-13 in most countries for sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief strong language and some suggestive images. For me, X-Men: Apocalypse is the best among all X-Men movies I've seen and is probably one of the best films of 2016. I was fortunate enough to have seen it in 4DX. All the special effects made the movie more engaging and interactive. But even without these effects, the movie still turned out great - from its plot to its casting to the use of CGI. Nothing beats the super powers of the X-Men. Engrossing, spectacular, and nothing short of amazing is how I would describe this movie. I really don't care what the critics are saying.

RATING: 5 out of 5 STARS


Til then...
