X-Men: Apocalypse is not super

5 second plot: A god-like mutant wakes up after thousands of years and decides to clean house. Meaning: destroy the world and start anew.

5 second review: The X-Men movies always have this urge to bring us a lot of origin story. I like all the 'new' characters but their origin doesn't always have to be explained so elaborately. The battles are gigantically awesome but they look like a big CGI monster. And everyone switches sides quicker than they switch underwear. It's still a cool superhero movie, but not supercool.

IMDb score: 7,7/10
Our score: 6/10
