Of all the X-Men movies, X-Men: Apocalypse is among the ones I like the least.  There’s too little tension for much of the movie, and it’s not helped by its prequel nature guaranteeing the survival of the heroes at the end.  The only question is how they survived.  Unlike Captain America: Civil War – which is likely to be the best action movie of 2016 –  too few exciting fight scene can be found in the long setup here.  When something important happened, it looks a lot like a repetition of what occurred in another X-Men movie.  I also dislike the new look of Storm, and Jean Grey to a less extent.

Note: there is a post-credits scene at the very end.
