X-Men: Apocalypse
Bryan Singer
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence

The youngsters are back and must save the Earth from oblivion while learning how to play nice with each other. This time it’s an ancient Egyptian mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who can absorb all mutant abilities. “[It’s] a reminder that the makers of comic-book blockbusters don’t have to abandon subtlety, character, performance, and film grammar completely. After the Everything’s-a-Metaphor! sledgehammering of Batman v. Superman and the jokey flab of Captain America: Civil War, Singer’s film feels like something somewhat rare: an actual superhero movie.… This film nimbly mixes narrative exuberance and emotional depth, flamboyant displays of power with quietly terrifying exchanges. It zips along, combining the highs and lows of a real comic book – all the feeling, color, and wonder, even some of the dopiness–with gloriously cinematic storytelling.” (Village Voice) “[T]he ‘X-Men’ series is going deeper and getting better as it goes along.” (SF Chronicle)
