I was going to write my own blog about X-Men:Apocalypse but this one right here perfectly sums up everything wrong with this film. Especially the need to get rid of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique because she is HORRIBLE!!!! I will disagree with one point Alexandra Shipp is not good as Storm. I’m sorry, her accent is horrible and I’m just not buying her as the Goddess Storm. Loved this blog!

Don’t expect this movie to rely heavily on the source material. Director Bryan Singer presents a film that’s a hodge-podge of various stories made up by people who know nothing about the X-Men. Aside from Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Apocalypse (Oscar Issac, doing well with whatever the hell he is given) being mildly entertaining, they can’t save the film from imploding. Everyone else is either used as filler or bores you to death with their on-screen presence. Choppy action scenes are put in place to mask the uninteresting, underdeveloped characters, cheesy dialogue, Playstation 2-quality special effects, and makeup that looks like it was bought from the bargain bin at Chapel Hill Beauty Supply. The worst part is the newcomers don’t get their chance to shine like the trailer would have you believe. Particularly the characters of color.
