With the success of Days of Future Past, I was more than eager to watch this movie, especially with the post-credit zinger of a blue-skinned man forming a pyramid in the presence of four people on horseback. I am not the biggest fan of the X-Men comics, but I do know a bit about it to know of Apocalypse, a powerful mutant that is a great villain beyond all others.
After the events of the previous movie, mutants are being accepted in the world after the horrors that happened in First Class and Days of Future Past but as the world adapts to this change some look upon mutants as something greater than themselves but not all mutants are great some are flawed and as shown in this story no good at all. As the X-Men are brought back to handle a dangerous mutant known as En Sabah Nur, regarded as the first mutant but this is no champion for mutants but a diabolical force that sees himself as a god and the world his for the taking.
This story takes its time but thanks to director Bryan Singer and the phenomenal cast of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Oscar Issac, and so much more tell a great story, one that never lets up in adventure and excitement.
The 3D Blu-ray experience is still great, with phenomenal picture quality. The special features are greatly better than the last movie with great deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes features and a nice gag reel. Great to have this on a digital copy too.
The last and the best of the lot.
