IMDB's summary: "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, 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 with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction."
My thoughts: the first time (& a couple of times after) I saw the preview for this movie, I got goosebumps. No jokes, that's how big of a nerd I am. So, I'm shocked that it took this long for Paul & I to finally go see it.
I loved it! I love the characters, I love the actors, I just love X-Men. It makes me want to go back to the beginning/end (depending how you look at it) & watch them all again even the Origin movies. They are just SO good! I can hardly contain myself & then when I saw this in a preview:
it was on! I love me some Wolverine...excuse me, Weapon X. He is such a badass & it just gets me more & more excited for the next Wolverine movie. Plus, Hugh Jackman is a good looking man but there is just something about when he's Wolverine that gets me going. Yum!
After viewing this, I tried to figure out who my favorite was & I've been having a difficult time choosing between Jean, Charles/Professor X, Eric/Magneto or Quicksilver. For some reason, I'm kinda gravitating towards Eric especially after what was done to him. Although, I wish he would pick a side & stay put - the whole back & forth with him is beginning to make my neck hurt. Ha! I will say that I do like him as a "bad guy" & I understand why he's "bad" & wants to get revenge on the world.
