They ruined the original characters with all the soap opera and unnecessary CGIs.
Jennifer Lawrence as Mystic looks real stupid and the rest of the crew are more like Sesame Street fellows.
Some over acting’s are way over the top too.
Both Marvel and DC movie adaptions are disappointing nowadays.

I was not familiar with any of these Xmens but now I'm interested. Fairly easy to see what their powers are even if you aren't familiar. Fassbender is the most gorgeous guy in movies today. You wonder why he and the girl in Wonder Woman didn't start out younger in movies. Felt like the wolf guy with the long nails was a cameo and I think he is one of the stars of the series.

I'm not sure what to think of the newest X-Men movie. It's always fun to see the different iconic characters as younger versions but some parts felt as through it was rewriting what was built in earlier movies. Some details clashed or didn't fit. I'm glad I watched it so that i'm up to date and ticked the box but it was not up to the standard of some of the others in series. Trying too hard or clutching a plot straws? - I'm not sure. It was quite well cast and the bloopers reel special feature did make me laugh.

Movie studio shoved a whole lot of characters from every era, put into a blender & press puree. Scott Summers the younger brother of Alex? WTH? Jubilee was introduced in the 1990s for crying out loud. What plot? So Xavier's house was rebuilt by mutants, but not the city or the bridges? Fast & loose franchise dying in a slow death.

This was an ok movie. It was better than X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Bleak, and they keep retelling a certain mutants origin. It is kinda tiring.

X-men Movies have the odd distinction of only coming in two categories: 'Enjoyably Good' and 'Just Bad'. This is one of the 'Just bad' ones. Where it does a good job is following the comic origins of some of the characters, with understandable twists. Storm, Cyclops, and Apocalypse's origin stories are fairly true to the comics, with a few necessary character stand ins. Where it falls apart is the writing, the overall plot, the character imbalances and the overall 'reboot' or 'origin story' for the main X-Men cast.

The villain doesn't seem to 'need' most of the henchmen he gathers and the overall conflict feels forced. The only story-line with interest is that of Erik/Magneto hiding out with his family in cold war Poland. That story would have made an interesting full movie on its own, yet it's cruelly cut short by getting rid of the family in order to force him into the main plot. Not cruel in a heartfelt cinematic way, but merely a sudden cut to converge stories. The whole movie felt 'forced' and 'made for the sake of making rather than telling a story'.

Okay… I know there's a lot of bad reviews out there for this film, but I have to disagree. I mean, the plot is a bit formulaic and the script is a tad awkward and the movie overall is long but I thought the characters were well cast. I loved seeing the younger versions of all the characters from the original trilogy. The two biggest complaints I had were: Keep religion out of it. Keep Christianity out of it. And stop making stereotypical Egyptians.

Violence: sequences of violence, action and destruction

Violence: This is the main problem with this movie. People are be-headed with sand, guards slit through their necks with a pocket watch, and [SPOILER] the main bad guy is impaled.

Coarse Language: One use of f**k, but I agree with Elmo17Noodle, it was kind of funny because of the circumstances. A few uses of OMG.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The most disturbing scene in this movie is when pieces of metal tear through someones back from the inside.

Erik Lensherr: [wry laugh] Oh, yes. Hope.

Charles Xavier: I was right about Raven. I was even right about you.

Charles Xavier: It does indeed.

Erik Lensherr: What do you do when you wake up to that?

Charles Xavier: I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul that comes to my school looking for trouble.
