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.

The movie takes place in the 1980s. (Each X-Men movie covers a different decade by the way, First Class is the 60s, Days of Future Past in s the 70s, and this one the 80s.) The story not only features Apocalypse assembling his Four Horsemen but the government getting involved as well in its never ending campaign against mutants.
There are many more mutants and Easter Eggs are introduced as well. Caliban shows up two times in Germany. When some of Xavier’s students attempt to escape the government they run into Wolverine. His appearance relates back to the X2 film from 2003 where the story of Logan and Colonel Stryker is fleshed out. Angel becoming one of the four horsemen and gaining metal wings is taken directly from the comics.
Ultimately the story comes down to what it means to be part of the mutant family. Does it mean domination as Homo Superior and survival of the fittest, which is what Apocalypse offers, or to live together, Professor Xavier’s alternative? There’s a third path as well which Mystique talks about that is full of fear and struggles as the human race still fears and persecutes mutants.
Overall, the action is great such as when Quicksilver saves the students at Xavier’s school from an explosion. There is another huge battle at the end that really plays upon the power of Apocalypse compared to all the others allayed against him. There’s a good mix of humor thrown in as well such as when Summers destroys Xavier’s favorite tree while showing off his powers. Or when Xavier sees MacTaggert for the first time in years and says in a slip of the tongue that he was going to check her out. In the end, it’s the second best of the current three X-Men films only behind Days of Future Past.
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.
Olivia Munn and Rose Byrne are pretty.
Okay, now for the negatives:
This thing is a mess from start to finish--well, from start to the last part I watched before giving up on it and turning it off. I didn't bother to see this when it was released in theaters because of all the bad reviews, but today I thought "hey, keep an open mind, give it a chance, it's just four bucks." Well, I apologize to myself for the bad advice.
On the other hand, it makes me want to go back and read the old Byrne/Claremont stuff I loved as a teen so I can go back to liking these characters again.

Cabe decir que este blu ray es la version distribuida en EUA y El blu ray en si es de 10 en todos los aspectos. El video y sonido son de maxima calidad, incluye un dvd y tambien copia digital. Tiene una hora de un detras de camaras, escenas eliminadas y bloopers. El filme incluye doblaje y subtitulos al espanol. El precio fue de $170 en el buen fin y me llego con Slipcover.
Viene con slipcover, bluray, dvd y copia digital, me gusta la variedad de formatos para diferentes ocasiones.
Las características especiales son pocas, a pesar que dice que vienen muchas, no son tantas.
La caja del bluray de plástico es color plata, lo cual le pone un poco más de onda.
Si cuenta con audio y subtítulos en español.
El contenido extra es totalmente genial, aunque si se quiere ver todo en un solo día si se tomará bastante tiempo para lograrlo.
