I'm not sure why Fox is sitting on this and the Deadppol trailer. These things leak almost instantly. So, isn't better to get a higher quality version out right away?

I don't mind the f-bomb's in the films. But, including one in the trailer seems a little too gimmicky for me.

Doesn't immediately evoke "Apocalypse" to me at all and he's not very menacing or imposing looking either, at least in these photos. As for the Psylocke outfit, I've seen cosplayers sporting better costumes.

Still, hoping this turns out good.

Really can't understand some of the hater/negative reviews..? I thought this was a good addition to the X-Men saga.

I'm gonna catch this again on Wednesday but I really enjoyed it. Some scenes knocked it outta the park, Quicksilver, berserker, Phoenix etc and it definitely set the X-Men in a new direction, particularly the post credit scene (which really should have been mid-credits because fuck)

Makes me wanna watch X2 again. Right now.

Gonna side with SI here. Saw it last week and loved it. I don't give a crap about any critics so I was relaxed when I sat there in the theater and just embraced it. It didnt felt rushed for me in any kind. There weren't to many mutants and there there was not to much action in the slightest. In the end the real battle is only 20 minutes tops.

For me it was a compelling story. the new cast was great and the old cast felt like coming home. So this was a great conclusion of the trilogy (First Class, Futire Past, Apocalypse) for me.

I hope for more great Singer X-Men movies...

...and how great was the STAR WARS Reference and the nod to X3 ;)

yeah managed to praise Star Wars and bash X3 all in the one exchange :)

I saw this again yesterday and actually liked it even more. The Quiksilver scene cut to Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" is fckn fantastic as a matter of fact.

Just in case you're living on another planet, Olivia Munn has a rack to die for. That Psylocke outfit though.. :yay:

I really liked Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse. A man out of time if I ever saw one. Kinda has an Ultron vibe in his view of the current state of the planet.

Just got out and had to post how criminally underrated this movie is. I really don't understand the hate for it. There's an absolute ton of fan service, and while there's material to nitpick I can't see how that's any different from any other superhero movie.

Will update with more thoughts.

I saw it this weekend.....I'm mixed on it.

The front end was super choppy....tons of exposition, tons of bouncing around with way too many things to setup.

The back end was a lot better. The fights were pretty awesome.

Scott and Jean feel contrived.

I actually liked the original horseman more than the 4 they setup in the movie.

Archangel blew goats....seriously, favorite Horseman, ever (except maybe polaris) and that's what you do with him....give me a freaking break.

That's interesting to hear Cryostar as the common perception of the film was they set-up the first 2 acts very well but it fell apart in the 3rd.

I agree though, once Magneto was recruited the other 3 horsemen became benchwarmers.

The first two acts drug out tooooo long. Some stuff was really good, Magneto's family was cliched but effective motivation. Some stuff felt very flat (now you're X-men! and the out-of-tone Quicksilver scene).

The into sequence was visually stunning. Then I saw that John Dysktra was VFX supervisor.

I got a lot of enjoyment out of the film though. B+

I had heard the same, maybe my expectations were too high.

It just seemed they tried too many things:

Setup New Students
Catch up With Moira
Setup Magneto
Setup Apocolypse
Recruit the horsemen
Catch up with old students
Setup Scott and Jean
etc, etc, etc

The movie was certainly the most "comic booky" of all the X-Men films so far. For me, that wasn't a problem. I cheerfully accepted the grandiosity of the Quicksilver sequence based on the 1980s setting: it was the decade of excess. Some of the sequences from the final battle were similarly over-the-top, mainly from the Horsemen, but I guess you could rationalize that by the enhancements that Apocalypse provided them. I like that they chose to include Archangel, but the original comic story of his fall tugged some emotional strings that weren't by this movie due to lack of depth for his character.

I was really hoping Charles (and maybe Raven) would die somehow, that Apocalypse would win, and that Magneto would realize that Charles' dream of human-mutant peaceful coexistence was worthwhile. By the end of the movie, he could have then led a broken X-Men team, and the movie would have set up an Age of Apocalypse film. However, what we got was a solid, above average "inbetweequel" (Singer's words) that presumably sets up the next period piece X-Men movie. As good if not better than First Class, but several notches below the stellar Days of Future Past. Totally agree with CoGro, the critics are definitely unfairly panning "Apocalypse," as it is not a turd like "The Last Stand" or "X-Men Origins." Some people were probably expecting the final chapter of a trilogy, but the filmmakers obviously have spurned the three-act narrative structure with these prequels. And that's not really all for the worse.

I think the Phoenix story arc, at least the original, cannot be done justice in film, but it would be cool to be proven wrong.

Also, it could just be my eyes deceiving me (I was tired when I saw the movie), but it seemed that they made up Rose Byrne to look older in this movie, which was set 20 years after First Class, but they didn't really do anything to age the other actors, namely Fassbender and McAvoy. Outrageously misogynistic if that was indeed the case. I've seen her in a lot of recent movies, and Dormé still be smokin'. :bunnys:
