X-Men: Apocalypse

Director Bryan Singers’s X-Men: Apocalypse is really not as bad as it’s been made out to be.  Having heard some of the buzz, I went with low expectations, but was, gradually, taken in by Writer Simon Kinberg’s screenplay.
The problem is that there is not enough story to compete against the digital effects, which, though extremely competent, are too overwhelming and, ultimately, become boring.
Still, there are some excellent performances, especially that of Game of Thrones performer Sophie Turner.  Rose Byrne, also, stands out along with Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler and Michael Fassbender as Magnito.

A good ending makes up for a lot of sins, as well.

As for its 3D, however, save your money and see the 2D version.

I give X-Men: Apocalypse a 3 out of 5.
