The reviews have not been kind to “X-Men: Apocalypse,” the new sequel which is the ninth overall film in the “X-Men” franchise, the sixth in the main series, the fourth to be directed by Bryan Singer, and the third of the current ‘First Class’ trilogy with younger actors in the iconic roles.
Currently ranking on review aggregate sites near “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” as the worst reviewed film of the series to date, ‘Apocalypse’ has been heavily criticised from top to bottom from the script to its wasting of talent, to the way it’s filmed, etc. Only the Quicksilver scene seems to have come out unscathed.
