Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

I recognize some revisions to the mutant timelines have occurred in the 50 years since I read my first issues and the movies continue to reflect this. I hold no critical displeasure with that decision.
While I also acknowledge today's key 18-49 group like their characters morose (and somewhat deadly), I don't see why every character has to be a surly child. With the exception of Hank McCoy, everyone seems like one step up from a punk (and then miraculously, by movie's end, a hero).
That said, the movie was entertaining. As usual, the graphics were outstanding (also as usual, the dialog was choppy). The plot is no surprise to an X-Men reader and also easy enough to follow for newcomers.
I do think these films tend to stick very close to the "glue" characters, which means heavy Magneto and Mystique use. I also continue to be befuddled at the lack of relative impact Professor Xavier's "most powerful mutant mind" gets in the films, so his more integral role here is pleasing.
There are Easter eggs and "guest stars" galore, but I would have to reveal spoilers to talk about them, so I'll merely say comic fans will want to own this film and passerby viewers will want to watch it.
