In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Gray becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.
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

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.

SPOILER: There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: Men from Essex Corporation (run by X-Men villain Mister Sinister, aka Nathaniel Essex) arrive at the Weapon X base and collect samples of Wolverine's blood. This leads into Logan (2017). See more »
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.
