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

Trivia

This will be Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver's fifth cinematic appearance, after a cameo in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), the post-credits scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), and major appearances in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). See more »

Goofs

*Incorrect* When Quicksilver asked Mystique about how she used to know Magneto, Peter said he met him 2 years back (He actually says '10 years back'), but the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) takes place in 1973 and the events of X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) takes place a decade later which is 1983 (additional info is that Scott, Kurt, Jubilee and Jean watched Return of the Jedi which was released in 1983) See more »

Quotes

Moira MacTaggert: Some believe that the first mutant was born thousands of years ago. He was some kind of god, and he's going to rise again.

Crazy Credits

The Marvel logo from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies is used on this movie, unlike the rest of the past X-Men films which use the old Marvel logo. This is the first Marvel movie produced with another company to do so, next being Spider-Man: Homecoming (which is part of the MCU). See more »

X-Men: Apocalypse is great if X-Men: Days of Future Past was awesome
10 May 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Overall movie was great Although movie starts a bit slow and i was a little confused and bored but after that the movie finally starts catching up to the expectation.

For me this was the best x-men movie because this movie has the best action sequences as compared to any other x-men movie with a great story and emotion(not as good as days of future past but who cares its a superhero movie) .

and

QUICKSILVER WASSS AWESOMEEEEE .

I can literally watch the movie again just because of quicksilver.I never thought they could top the X-Men: Days of Future Past action(or comedy) scene but they did.

Acting of all the cast members were awesome and James McAvoy,Michael Fassbender & Jennifer Lawrence knocked it out the park.

I don't understand the critics , I never did.(sound's similar to superman's mom in BvS that was in the trailer :P)

Movie the great and I can't wait to watch it again.
