‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Critics Spots Call It ‘One Of The Coolest Superhero Movies Of The Decade’

ApocalypseWhile the film has already opened up overseas this past weekend, X-Men: Apocalypse finally hits theaters stateside in a few short days and marketing is in full swing to promote the film’s domestic release. While the critical reception has been mixed, there’s a good number of critics that liked it and these new TV spots have found some really cool ways of cutting in their comments about the film.

Regardless of mixed reviews, fan response has been pretty positive and the film is opening up to some pretty good numbers across seas. Have you already seen the film? What did you think? Check out the new spots below and as always let us know what you think in the comments section afterwards.

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 (Michael Fassbender), 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 (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Only the strong will survive when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.

I write stuff. Sometimes.


    Uh-Oh, don’t tell the Disney cult worshippers that!!

    But seriously, I saw X-men online a couple of weeks ago, and it is pretty decent. It’s not better than BVS for me, but still pretty interesting moments. Apocalypse wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought he would be.

    Saw it in Mexico in 4DX and it was great, really entertaining and although Apocalypse is kind of a dull villian and the “horseman” are a complete waste the movie closes the prequel trilogy with a bang and left me waiting for what’s to come in this new XMen Universe, I’m going for my second viewing tonight.

    Critics have figured out that attacking superhero movies brings them attention. The critics who attacked “Batman v. Superman” are mini Fredric Werthams, desperate for the attention they can garner by trashing a popular genre of entertainment. As soon as a Marvel film commits the sin of attempting to be “serious,” the media will break out their long knives in an attempt to rip it to shreds. Mark my words.
