X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse (2015)
An ancient mutant (Oscar Isaac aka Poe Dameron) re-emerges in the 1980s with a nefarious plan to wipe out humanity. The X-Men (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, J-Law, and a dozen or so others) band together, introducing a few new-yet-familiar superheroes, to save the world.

My Two Cents: So. Many. X-Men. I liked the continued origin stories (notably Jean Grey and Cyclops in this iteration), but the "Magneto's inner conflict" bit felt played out three movies ago. He changes sides more often than a WWE character. Isaac's goofy-looking Apocalypse character did not come across as menacing as he should have either.

Drew's Rating: 6/10
