The movie has its flows, but I don't think that it's rotten.
One major problem is the excessive nostalgia for the old movies. It is OK to make an homage at some point, but it's not acceptable to make a movie fulled of it! It took away from the story, and took way too much time from the movie; this precious amount of time could've made the movie way better.
The young cast shines although they were giving little to do except for JEan Grey maybe... For once we saw glimpses of shadows of a possible true X-men team...
The old cast is OK, but their story felt redundant... The director should've focused on the young cast who btw are playing the real X- men members...
The villain was well established, but lacked true motivations. Same goes to the Horsemen. It's a shame because in the comics there's lot of good materials & valid motivations & backstories, singer & Kinberg should've been easily inspired.
The ending felt rushed, it was a huge CGI mess, nothing made sense. It was underwhelming.
To resume all of this, the x-men played supporting roles in a movie called X-men... (ONCE AGAIN). The villain is a mere shadow of his original material counterpart.
The only positive I found is that the young cast did a good job, & they are potentially good for a future movie that focuses on them. the old cast did a good job acting-wise, but their story isn't new.
Although the movie is still enjoyable, it is not as good as it can potentially be (knowing what the original material offered)...
