X-Men: Apocalypse

2 1/2 out of 5 stars

“Only the Strong  will survive…” this disappointing X-Men movie, I’m afraid.

Well, it’s not that bad….. The two hours plus running time speeds along until the film falters in the standard CGI City Meltdown.

But where is the nuance? And most important of all the heart – which is the key of the X-Men comic books and franchise.

Forgotten amongst the special effects is the whole point of the X-Men – the next evolutionary step – outsiders shunned  by society.

It ain’t  ‘X2″ or ‘Days of Future Past’ I’m afraid. Let’s hope the X-Men evolve into a better class of movie next time around.
