Poor Days of Future Past sequel.

X-men Movies have the odd distinction of only coming in two categories: 'Enjoyably Good' and 'Just Bad'. This is one of the 'Just bad' ones. Where it does a good job is following the comic origins of some of the characters, with understandable twists. Storm, Cyclops, and Apocalypse's origin stories are fairly true to the comics, with a few necessary character stand ins. Where it falls apart is the writing, the overall plot, the character imbalances and the overall 'reboot' or 'origin story' for the main X-Men cast.

The villain doesn't seem to 'need' most of the henchmen he gathers and the overall conflict feels forced. The only story-line with interest is that of Erik/Magneto hiding out with his family in cold war Poland. That story would have made an interesting full movie on its own, yet it's cruelly cut short by getting rid of the family in order to force him into the main plot. Not cruel in a heartfelt cinematic way, but merely a sudden cut to force him into the main plot-line unnecessarily. The whole movie felt 'forced' and 'made for the sake of making rather than telling a story'.

This was a good movie, I agree with you Gwen904. I feel really bad for Magneto

Okay… I know there's a lot of bad reviews out there for this film, but I have to disagree. I thought the characters were amazing, with an excellent cast. The plot was entertaining and the effects were astounding. I loved seeing the younger versions of all the characters from the original trilogy. The only complaint I have is: Keep religion out of it. Keep Christianity out of it. And stop making stereotypical Egyptians.

The biggest dissappointments are the shoehorn of the Dark Phoenix arc, Wolverine yet again, and killing off another major villain.

That X-men movie is in my opinion too narrative and not sufficiently packed with actions.

Not very good. has anyone who directs and produces these Marvel films ever even read the comic books ??? all the movies are bad. Apocalypse in the comics is epic but in the movie hes a a whimp. Not good casting or good use of what should be great X-men characters. Bad except for Weapon X

The new X-Men series is building momentum, but the end of this movie drops the ball. We spend a whole movie building an extremely powerful villain only to get an anti-climactic deus-ex-machina that only people familiar with the comics will understand or see coming.

Violence: This is the main problem with this movie. People are be-headed with sand, guards slit through their necks with a pocket watch, and [SPOILER] the main bad guy is impaled.

Violence: Lots of killing, lots of stabbing, lots of blood also blood being splattered on walls, lots of gross stuff, and lots of disintegrating.

Violence: Blood, a few gory deaths/wounds, stabbing, supernatural powers, embedding people in concrete, slicing off people's heads, etc.

Coarse Language: One use of f**k, but I agree with Elmo17Noodle, it was kind of funny because of the circumstances. A few uses of OMG.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The most disturbing scene in this movie is when pieces of metal tear through someones back from the inside.
