Based on the Marvel comic, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac)—an ancient mutant—rises in the 1980s. As a self-proclaimed god, he commences to cleanse the world through mass destruction so only the strongest will survive. Can the young Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and his X-men stop the almost all-powerful Apocalypse?
ClearPlay In Action!
The filters can remove the more intense brutality, but due to the nature of the genre, the film still contains a great deal of violence. ClearPlay handles the language issues of an f-word, some religious profanity and exclamations, along with mild cursing and name calling. Other than some shirtless men and skin tight clothing, there is no sex in the film.
Is this a “Marvel-ous" sequel or a major “mys-tique"? …
Special effects drew me in and kept my interest, which is a good thing since I didn’t feel connected to the characters—I’ve missed more of the X-Men films than I realized. Despite that, I was able to follow the story, and Apocalypse unearthed a desire to see the missed episodes.
