Storyline

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. Written by 20th Century Fox

Quotes

[first lines]
Charles Xavier: Mutants: said by many to be the next stage, and yet we act like children. Give someone the power to travel through time, and they start to worry about the future. And make someone all-powerful, they think of ruling the world.

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits a scene appears where a suited man is seen walking through the remains of the Weapon X clean-up program while workers are removing the blood, bodies and bullets after Wolverines went berserk and escaped. The man retrieves a vial of Wolverine's blood labeled Weapon X, then placing it into his briefcase which contains other vials of differing colors. Slamming the briefcase shut, reveals that it is labeled ESSEX CORP. Its implied that this is Mister Sinister. See more »

The surprise superhero movie of the year!
17 May 2016 | by (Manchester) – See all my reviews

It was everything I hoped it would be. Awesome action sequences, stunning picture, funny scenes, cool Easter eggs/references. Apocalypse wasn't as bad as I thought he would be. He was actually OK.

If you thought they could not top Quicksilver's awesome scene from Days of Future Past, get ready for a treat because his scenes were amazing. Marvel, you should get a few lessons on how to make a proper Quicksilver from Fox.

Sophie Turner was really good as Jean and I think we finally have a bad-ass Cyclops.

Saw it last night and I will probably go see it a few more times. Lets hope there will be more X-Men movies with this cast.
