I just want to be an awesome mutant! So far my favorite superhero film this year!

I'm a fan so I'm happy to say I'm happy with the film. I wasn't sure what to expect because I was avoiding clips and trailers as much as I could. I love X-Men films and the characters so I'm always anxious because I wish that X-Men movies stay good. And they are! Yeey! What a strong performers from everyone from 'old' team, while my fav newbies were Sophie Turner and Oscar Isaac. Nice job guys! For me this movie remains what it always was, a thinking person's action movie with good storytelling and funny elements (that doesn't feel forced). It's not perfect but overall exciting and in X-Men style. There are two or three scenes where I was like: ''Omg, whaaat?! Awesome!'' Really cool visual stuff! I won't spoil anything but yes, Quicksilver is amazing once again! I was most disappointed when it came to characters like Psylocke and Angel. I wanted to know more about them and their story. Nevertheless, kudos to Bryan Singer for having so many characters in the film and handling them so well (much better than we've seen in Captain America: Civil War). Wonderful! 4/5

  1. Totally agree with you! Apocalypse was... epic is probably the best word to describe it. I think you might be interested in my review on the same movie:
