Movie Review - X-Men: Apocalypse

Movie Review 1 1/2 Stars

"X-Men: Apocalypse"

Fans have been eager to see a new film since "Days of Future Past" was one of the biggest hits of the franchise two years ago. That film ended with the promise of the villain Apocalypse for the next movie, and we're going to get that movie even if director Bryan Singer can't come up with anything to make it unique or appealing.
