In 1983, the invincible and immortal Apocalypse is set free after being entombed for several millennia. Enraged that his kind are no longer treated as gods, Apocalypse assembles a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to destroy humankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.

ReviewX-Men: Apocalypse  sees the introduction of new characters; Psylocke, Angel who together with a young Storm & Magneto have they powers enhanced by Apocolypse to become the Four Horsemen.

Some pieces will fall into place, while others will make you question the movie sequence of X-men as we move back in time.  True fans will enjoy this as back story extensions for some of their favourite characters like; Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Raven/Mystique, Magneto, Xavier, Beast, Quicksilver, Nightcrawler.


Some of the effects may seem a little over the top, but it's fantasy so bring it on. Sit back and enjoy the characters in a new light, as they unravel the struggles that brought them together as X-men.  With a small tie in from Hugh Jackman Wolverine, how can you go wrong.  We loved X-men! Although Apocalypse you really need a facial old man…
