Last summer, I saw and reviewed X-Men: Apocalypse. The other night, I watched it again with my wife, who hadn’t seen it yet.
I was willing, thinking that maybe some distance and a second viewing would allow me to appreciate it a little more.
Still a jumbled mess of undeveloped characters and missed opportunities.
Jean Grey–Sansa bloody Stark–is boring and unappealing.
Scott Summers is a douche.
Jennifer Lawrence phones it in.
Nicholas Hoult is good as Beast.
James McAvoy is always good.
Too bad the movie isn’t about them.
Thank God Logan come out. Redeemed that whole fucking franchise in two hours.
