Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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.

Finally got around to watching this last night.
Meh... Had some visually appealing scenes and the acting was okay.
About 3/4 of the way into it I started wondering "how much more is there?".
So yeah, I never really got 'lost' in it.
Stan Lee's cameo was in your face 'bad'.
The 'after credits' sequence was dumb. Ohno, not another Wolverine movie...please gawd no.
The apocalyptic scenes were not wonderous for me...I recall realizing that CGI still has a long way to go.
Personally, I don't need heroes so there is no real appeal to me for superheroes.
I might play this again...for the children...
