Too heavy a burden Brian Singer took upon himself, trying to embrace everything and immediately tie the threads of the X-Men universe in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Professor X and Magneto, represented by McAvoy and Fassbender, respectively, continue to discuss the same thing: “Eric, there is good inside you!” “Maybe. But people … “. I must say right away that the film does not have a lot of chic scenes. One of the few was generally copied from themselves (or maybe this is another reference?). Quicksilver again in slow motion does wonders to vibrant music.
Due to the abundance of characters, many roles came out completely unwritten and mentioned only in passing. For example, practically not a word about Jubilee. Olivia Mann in the image of Psylocke, although cute, but almost the entire film is silent.
The list of slurred characters and other similar disturbances can be listed for a long time. Singer, continuing to talk about social inequality and the fate of the world, crammed too many characters into one tape, watching the battle of which is very boring. The antagonist is typical too – En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse. He’s a classic embittered deity who wants to purify the sinful world.
But is everything so bad in X-Men: Apocalypse? I think not. The cast is decent. They fit well with the characters they play. The idea of the film as a whole is not bad, although very secondary. It seems that the crew did not try very hard, or did not quite understand what result they want to get. After all, it was worth approaching the film more painstakingly, and a worthy comic book movie would have turned out.
