My Mini Review of X-Men Apocalypse
I'm not going into details, but this film...
X-Men: Apocalypse wasn't complete trash, but in this day and age of superhero films, it should've been better. The way they portrayed Storm and Psylocke. It was like they had no idea who they are. The were window dressing and frankly, it's disrespectful to their characters and history.
And poor Angel, he was just a pretty model with 10 words to remember. I feel like Brian Singer put him in the film because he was cute. The rest of the film is the same drama over and over again, Professor X, Mystique and Magneto. Why are we still this caught up in these three? And when did Mystique get so damn important?
The whole movie felt discombobulated and unfocused. After 16 years of X-Men films, you would think they could get this right? Nope.
I can't enjoy something that's this broke.
And that's my 2 cents
