Taking place 10 years after then events of Days of Future Past, Apocalypse continues the story of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Since mutantkind had been revealed to the world, the former X-Men have put their heroic days behind them as Charles runs his school for the gifted, Raven continues her mission to save lost mutants and Eric surprisingly starts a family. However all of this changes when an ancient mutant named En Sabah Nur (Oscar Issac) awakens to a brave new world. Seeing that the world must be cleanse, Apocalypse sets off to destroy humankind with the help of his horsemen Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Psylocke (Olvia Munn), Angel (Ben Hardy) and even Magneto. To stop this threat Mystique, along with Beast (Nicholas Hoult), form a team of mutants including Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters); and together they become the new X-Men.
X-Men Apocalypse is a fitting entry for this Marvel franchise. The movie is not the most effective in the series as it did have some issues in its execution. However there was so much that this film did right; from its big ideas to its exciting moments. Though the film may not be as strong as its predecessors, X-Men Apocalypse definitely brings a sense of justice to its name; and leaving this Film Adventurer to believe that the next chapter in the X-Men series is in a strong place to begin its next chapter.
