X-Men’ leaves fans disappointed

Delaney Garrelts, Reporter

“X-men: Apocalypse” was the eighth installment in the “X-Men” series, not including Deadpool, and although good, didn’t stand out.

It accomplished what every other “X- men” movie has in the past, by having a slightly underdeveloped but still lovable set of characters.

The villain, En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac), was the first mutant and was entombed for many years before awaking and planning to destroy the world so he could rebuild it in his image.

Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is forced into complying with En Sabah Nur’s wishes, along with three other mutants. They were the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

The movie also didn’t stray from the usual by having a pretty lackluster villain that everyone banded together to destroy in the end.

Quicksilver (Evan Peters) stole the movie with a scene where he saves around 15 people from an explosion in the span of only a few seconds, which was the only action scene worth noting.

Overall, the “X-men” series is pretty formulaic but always enjoyable for its great action sequences.
