Cinema review: X-Men Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse is the actor's first big blockbuster, but he wasn't the only Hollywood newcomer on set.

Executive producer and screenwriter of the Marvel film, Simon Kinberg discussed the significance of the deleted scenes during a London press junket and revealed why they couldn't make it to the 144-minute narrative. I particularly loved the reprisal of the "Does it ever wake you in the middle of the night?" speech from the end of the first film - a simple yet effective way of bringing the series full circle.

Even though Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Apocalypse" has received negative reviews thus far from the global market, the cast of the movie are optimistic that another movie will be in the works for the franchise and have expressed their eagerness to return.

X-Men: Apocalypse features a large ensemble cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, and Olivia Munn.

X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence in key roles and is directed by Bryan Singer.

I like finishing things.

The movie is scattered in whether it wants to focus on the old kids like Xavier and Mystique, or go all-in with the rookie class, led by Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), whose eyes shoot some serious laser blasts, and the telekinetic Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). For those that may not know, the character of Jubilee actually lived in a mall prior to joining the X-Men, so the scene did seem like it would have been very authentic.

The action, aside from the cloudy 3D, looks impressive (particularly the destruction of the Sydney Opera House), and "X-Men: Apocalypse" moves along tidily, but you watch thinking that all this used to be a lot more fun. Sinister would be the villain for the X-Force movie antagonist, which is still possible, but Bryan Singer has already proved with the X-Men: Days of Future Past post-credit scene that he likes to tease the upcoming villain for the next movie, which is Wolverine 3. There's not much spontaneity happening there - and say what you will about Apocalypse, it's hard to know what damn fool thing Singer's gonna do next. Fans can argue all day about who's the coolest mutant (as opposed to the most powerful - it's Jean, duh).

"Everyone was so welcoming, it was good", said Turner of joining the franchise veterans. "So yeah, it was just a really nice era to play with". These include returning players Mystique and Beast (Oscar victor Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, only occasionally overtaken by hair and makeup), as well as Lucas Till's Havok, and Rose Byrne's Central Intelligence Agency agent (and Professor X love interest) Moira MacTaggert.
