Stellar Comic X-Men: Apocalypse


Having recently been privy to the corrupt but deadly X-Men franchise with the 2014 film Days of the Future, director Brian Singer continues to delve into comic book history to discover his upcoming blockbuster “X-Men: Apocalypse”. Offering control of a completely new cast of X-Men to one of the biggest and most vicious enemies of the superhero team, Singer elegantly combines his stereotypical film “A Catastrophe at the End of the World” with another exciting story that combines comic nostalgia with authentic emotional ascent. With a fantastic cast under her wing — from the charming magneto of Michael Fassbender to the colorful collection of young heroes — and some complex action scenes worthy of the original material, Singer once again proves that the X-Men do not need the Avengers next to them to create a powerful summer blockbuster.

When the old evil suddenly wakes up after centuries of burial in Cairo, Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his school of gifted youth soon become embroiled in a mutant war, as this new mortal enemy is trying to cleanse the world in such a way that only the strongest survive. He quickly attracts other mutants, from gloomy mysticism (Jennifer Lawrence) to the now isolated family man Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the former leader of En Sabah Noor, aka Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), travels to the monumental realm of chaos to reclaim his rule from the “false gods” who now rule the world. world. If you not only divide the world from scratch, but also bundle the most important alliances of the X-Men team, only the most powerful source of strength and vitality can prevent the apocalypse from damageing the Earth as we know it.

Continuing the vicious superhero saga, which director Brian Singer started with the first X-Men movie in 2000, now the ninth part of the franchise wanted not only to offer fans a decent comic plot with its own massive villain and colorful characters, but also to rethink an established film series for a new era. With a whirl of nostalgia in the 80s and an apocalyptic chaos, “X-Men: Apocalypse” managed not only to realize the dream of a cartoon fan boy, but also to allow us to explore his palette of bright characters even more deeply. A movie for nerds looking for accurate comedy shows and characters, as well as for those looking for favorable character development and complex themes of loss and indifference, even with its small flaws, “X-Men: Apocalypse” delivered exactly what I was looking for.

Before we get into the finer details of what makes this movie both good and bad, I have to turn to the elephant in the room first, if you like. As most fans of the franchise know, the X-Men movies were never perfect. The once groundbreaking superhero franchise, which started with X-Men in 2000, has suffered a lot since then due to its somewhat confusing timeline and inefficiency in creating films worthy of an Oscar. the first two. Thus, even in the darkest times — with mediocre works like “X-Men Origin: Wolverine” and “X-Men: The Last action” – with mediocre works like “X-Men: The Last action”, the X-Men franchise managed to become one of the best comic book franchises in Hollywood. The franchise about superheroes and social commentary, improved by directors such as Brian Singer and Matthew Vaughn (“X-Men: First Class”) and screenwriters such as David Hayter and Simon Kinberg, remains clearly flawed – his schedule is still distorted, and some characters and stories still seem very undeveloped — but it continues to surprise fans with his latest shots.

The question here is whether the last part of the franchise will work to achieve the goal of the series or against it to fix its shortcomings. response…it it’s complicated. Despite the fact that the next chapter of “X-Men: Apocalypse” is a phenomenal representation of heavy creatures and complex characters in a world of injustice and chaos, it still suffers from a number of problems that influenced previous records. While new characters and storylines from the deadly Apocalypse and other popular comics can give the franchise a dynamic twist, this film is especially similar to a copy of its predecessors from the first class of 2011 and the days of the Past Future of 2014. It was always based on planting social indifference and discrimination towards mutant species, and it seemed that the “Apocalypse” could not solve or develop this central theme, but simply put it there so that viewers knew that it still exists. One of the few mistakes I discovered in this movie was his slightly lazy writing. While the horror spectacle of the apocalypse and the joy of carefully introducing new characters to their specific roles influenced their attention, it was quite clear that the plot elements remained undeniably tasteless.

This homogeneous structure is based on another defective – but nevertheless star-filled – element of the film, the cast. As one of the most gratifying aspects of the reformatted franchise structure, which produced a younger cast after “First Class” and “Days of the Past Future”, the cast of this film remains both extraordinary and, undoubtedly, opaque. Although characters such as Raven Jennifer Lawrence, aka Mystic, and Michael Fassbender Eric Lensherr, aka Magneto, are working on introducing new concepts and storylines to the franchise, the two — along with many others – remain the same as in the previous parts. While they are still working on a similar goal of making mutants the dominant race in an unfair society, their motives, even if the film is working on rethinking these characters, remain the same as never before. Even if their motives remain unchanged, it goes without saying that Fassbender and Lawrence remain the two most notable characters in the film, Lawrence enters a new role and retains his trust in Katniss, and Fassbender’s turmoil in the role of the half-villain Magneto continues to be breathtaking.
