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

Did You Know?

Trivia

Writer Simon Kinberg has stated that he and Bryan Singer have talked about this film being the origin of the traditional X-Men team and hopes future films will follow this "next generation of X-Men characters" following on from X: First Class (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and X-Men: Apocalypse. See more »

Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Nowhere in the film does it say it is set in January 1983, just that the events take place sometime in 1983, 10 years after X-Men: Days Of Future Past. This means that all the anachronisms mentioning dates between January & December 1983 are not goofs at all. Also, the movie is set in a fictional universe, so things like the wrong sized satellite dishes in Cairo could easily be explained by the technology based on this non-existent universe. No-one claims that a computer such as Cerebro is an error yet it obviously does not exist in real life. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charles Xavier: Mutants: born with extraordinary abilities, and yet still, they are children stumbling in the dark, searching for guidance. A gift can often be a curse. Give someone wings, and they may fly too close to the sun. Give them the power of prophecy, and they may live in fear of the future. Give them the greatest gift of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think they are meant to rule the world.

X-Men Apocalypse could have been better!
6 July 2016 | by Andrei StoianSee all my reviews

I had bigger expectations about this movie, it wasn't bad but it could have been better, after ''Days of Future Past'' everything was complicated because we didn't know what happened with the characters. Thankfully this movie explains some things but I think it isn't enough. Anyway the trailer was better than the movie. The fight with Apocalypse should have been harder and Wolverine should have appeared more, he only appears on a scene and Sansa (I mean Jean ) gives him back some memories. OK this is a good idea because now we want to know what Wolverine finds out but I would have liked him to fight Apocalypse. In conclusion ''X-Men Apocalypse'' wasn't so bad at least it was better than The Last Stand but overall it isn't my favorite from the series.
