I found myself loving this strange, straight-faced operetta that embraces everything from Gregorian chanting to East German punk to Flock of Seagulls
Those who have seen the previous "X-Men" movies will likely feel motivated to keep their run complete, and over 2 hours and 23 minutes, they mostly get their money's worth.
Even the hardcore geeks who like to get their Comic-Con on might be feeling a little superhero fatigue right about now. Still. You owe it to yourself to see Quicksilver do his thing.
At times, "Apocalypse" can be great fun, even if it doesn't know when to hand its car keys to a friend and ask to be taken home.
Don't believe the negative hype. Though sluggish and overlong, the ninth film in the franchise has some entertaining moments.
I liked it a lot.
