Oh yeah… the X-Men… I remember the X-Men…
by Thom Yee
I hate X-Men: Apocalypse.
I hate its little face. I hate its guts. And I hate the way it ruined the X-Men franchise.
Though to be fair, X-Men: The Last Stand did that first.
And that’s really the story of the X-Men on the big screen: Generally okay movies ruined by a few bad installments. For every couple of decent ones — X-Men and X-Men 2 — and even some good or great ones — X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past — there’s an X-Men: The Last Stand or X-Men: Apocalypse to set things back and screw everything up for those that try to follow them. Even the Wolverine and Deadpool movies were both almost tanked before they could start by X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
