    A mediocre superhero-movie with no real story to tell. The scenes felt rushed and sometimes, if you are lucky, you might spot the occasional strong acting from Turner, Fassbender and McAvoy.

    Dicen que cuando hay interés, se nota. En el cine no es la excepción. Simon Kinberg tuvo un gran presupuesto, buena materia prima y un elenco decente con James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender y una Sophie Turner que viene de "Game Of Thrones". Desgraciadamente Kinberg, no tiene la experiencia ni las ganas de hacer algo digno. La franquicia de "X-men" a tenido calidad con "Days Of Future Past"y ha tenido puntos terribles cómo con "Apocalypse", pero no merecía ésto. Una película sin pasión, aburrida, burda, repetitiva y desangelada. El elenco luce perdido, adormilado... acartonado. Esperemos con Disney enderecen el barco de ésta franquicia por su bien, y el de los fans. Sinceramente la sentí cómo falta de respeto para el espectador. Terrible...

    An ambitious undertaking, all these storylines converging, all these characters elbowing for screen time, proves too unwieldy to manage at the end of the day for this work. Nonetheless a superhero movie whose subject is one too few in the genre tangle with, i.e., how to come to grips living with more power than anyone around you, especially if those around you have more power than anyone else. It's not as bad as others make it out to be to be and still is a worthwhile pass of time, only lacking the oomph people come to expect from the genre.

    The Phoenix story line is a classic, however the odd pacing of the movie and the lack of set up for jeans turn into the Phoenix kills the plot. The great thing about the first Xmen series was actually how jean became the Phoenix. It was set up from the previous movie and it carries more weight with her being presumed dead. Although the 3rd movie was a mess, the set up was there for a great wrap on the series. However the new series tried to set it up in apacolypse but it just didn't work. It doesn't help that the actress has zero facial expressions and doesn't know how to show emotion on camera. Probably stick to being a boring minor character like Sansa. Mystiques weird rift with Charles and the x men makes no sense. It is so forced and the idea that she is pissed about being a good guy/super hero makes for a cliche antihero sub plot which just doesn't fit. Still don't get why mystique is the leader. She was hand picked from the start of the series as the lead female and at first it was refreshing, but she has Had no character development and she is still as boring in this film as she was in the first. Cyclopes is terrible in the whole series. He is meant to be the man, and with wolverine not in the team he really needed to be the poster boy. The directors and the producers seem to be set in their ways about pushing strong female characters. But a character like cyclops is more important than mystique, and to have him in her shadow is diabolical. Worst movie of the series, feel like jumping off a cliff

    Quite possibly one of the worst films ever created. It takes this incredible cast of actors, compelling characters,and established story line and throws all of it out the window. I always loved magneto. Seeing him get completely destroyed by a character that we don't care about after he already completed his arc is appalling. Fuck this movie.

    Worst xmen movie I've ever seen. Plot is ridiculous. Characters are out of themselves. Execution is poorly done. Furthermore, the feminist influence in this movie makes me sick. Mystique demanding Charles to call X-Men as "X-Women", even though later in the film, the monsters say the human language is made by little, ignorant "men". And how Jean kills people around, demands personal space to ppl who are genuinely trying to help her, even though she herself is seeking attention like an instagram whore. People told me this movie is a joke, but I tried watching it anyways. It's an X-men movie after all, right? But for the love of God this movie shouldn't have been filmed.

    Please don't let another comic book movie get touched by a 20th century fox executive. You call tell this entire movie got ruined by "you know what would make this better" emails and meetings....

    Honestly everything is messed up on this film. It gives you impression that the film director never watched previous X-men movies. Waste of money and time...
