Starring: Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, Hugh Jackman, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, etc.Directed by: Bryan SingerPlot: Ten years later, the X-men are back, though not necessarily because they want to be, but because they have to be.Review: I don't think Bryan Singer has a human sense of humour, which is would explain how there aren't too many funny parts that were meant to be funny and were some funny parts that shouldn't have been funny. He is writing a comic book movie as if it were a very intense movie that isn't riddled with comedic parts. I understand that the premise of the movie, which includes an entity that wants to destroy the world and recreate it in his image, may not be the best for comedy, but it's a comic.We join them all ten years later, Xavier and Beast are running the school, Lawrence is on a quest to save all the mutants and Fassbender is... happy, wait, what? Yeah, he now has a family, wife and daughter. Lives in Poland and works in an.... iron mill? Metallurgy shop? Something to do with metal and hot things. We also have the pleasure of joining Apocalypse 34, 017 years later as he existed in the year 36000 BC and was betrayed by his followers in a very firefly like way. (don't get the reference, watch firefly.) He wants back what once was his, four horsemen included. So he seeks out the strongest mutants he can find in Ororo Monroe (Storm) and Fassbender. He then decides to say "I'm good with these two, let's just find two more" and gets Psylocke and Angel. Don't get me wrong, Psylocke is pretty cool, but certainly not the caliber of many others and the guy they cast for Angel REALLY reminds me of Bill S. Preston, Esquire from Bill & Ted so much that I watched it when I got home (am I supposed to capitalize Esquire if it's a title? I really don't know). Also, Angel kinda sucks as a mutant. Sorry to burst that bubble guys, but his only ability is he can fly. I mean, Cyclops shoots lasers from his eyes... from his God Damned Eyes! I apologize, I went on a tangent there because there's so much better out there.We find Cyclops as a budding young man who finds his powers at the age of...16 ish and is taken to the academy by his older brother Alex (The x-men universe is played pretty fast and loose in the movies, just let it go Patrick. It can't change and it won't judge you, breathe.) About the same as as Jean Grey who doesn't know her own strength and Nightcrawler, who has some pretty emo style hair. Quicksilver is reprised in this, more of a part of the movie than in DoFP, but something about him is still kind of off-putting to me, oh, I know! It's because they make him seem like he's the fastest being in existence, so fast in fact, that he seemingly isn't affected by exploding buildings.Not so much of a spoiler, we see that Fassbenders family is killed in a hilarious fashion. There's a group of cops who find out that he's Magneto, so they rid themselves of all metal and go to find him. While doing so, a cop who's barely holding a bow and arrow lets go of it "By Accident" and the arrows shoots through what looks to be his daughters spine and into his wife heart. Holy crap, everyone was sad and I literally laughed out loud in this sequence. Then I was quickly shut up as he kills like a dozen guys with a pendant he had given his daughter by, get this, shooting it width wise through all of their jugulars guys. Then Apocalypse finds him and takes him to show him his true power, that he can bend metal in the ground and not just metal he sees, which he likely already knew, but whatever.After Magneto is taken (of his own will), Charles looks for him using Cerebr0 only to find that Apocalypse now has a new meaning in his life... to take Charles Xavier and use his mind powers to rule the world!Not without a fight though, amiright?! Not really, he takes him very easily. But, he'll have to deal with the Avengers, I mean X-men! A small detour to Alkali lake to save Weapon X Wolverine and we're off to Cairo! Apocalypse has a plan to put his being into Xavier and rule the world with an iron fist, only the strong survive! But again, he picked Angel instead of the real strong ones, so shockingly, he loses. But not a surprise when *Spoiler* he fights Jean Grey and her super Phoenix powers.I glossed over a lot of parts of the movie as to not spoil too much about it, but it clocks in at a hefty 144 minutes of your life. That being said, the after credits sequence, which comes in at the very end of the movie, not halfway through the credits, involves Essex Corp, run by Nathaniel Essex who goes by the moniker of Mister Sinister and could mean bringing in Gambit for the next one as his solo movie got shut down as far as I know (Damn, no Channing Tatums shitty cajun accent mon cherie).Better than First Class, but not as good as DoFP, I'd see it, but plan your day around the long runtime.
