The action-adventure film X-Men: Apocalypse continues the story in the last release, centering on a massive incident of the awakening En Sabah Nur or the Apocalypse, the first mutant who ever existed on the Earth.
Possessing the powers of many other mutants, the Apocalypse hopes to create a new world order by recruiting powerful mutants to destroy everything built by the humankind. What would Professor X and his X-Men do to stop the destruction of the world, aside from probably facing his old friend, Magneto?
With Professor X and the Beast re-opening the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, the new movie introduces you to the young Cyclops, Jean Grey and Nightcrawler as new students, alongside familiar faces such as Mystique, Havok and the Quicksilver.
There is no time for orientation day for the Team Defend as the Apocalypse also recruited four dangerously powerful mutants for his Team Destroy: Storm, Angel, Psylocke and of course the Master of Metal, Magneto.
Apart from the opposing mutants of Team Defend and Team Destroy battling each other, there are few suspenses in this movie. The Quicksilver will need to deal with his heartless father, Magneto and how the only class five mutant, Jean Grey (Phoenix) releases her telekinetic potential to fight the indestructible Apocalypse. And you’re probably wondering how Professor get bald right? The answer is in this movie.
