It's rare to find a film which resonates so strongly with its subject matter as X-Men: Apocalypse. Well, at least on a remarkably meta level anyway. Internally you have a film about a new generation of outcasts linked to an ancient and successful dynasty, slammed and opposed by the established governing bodies; yet externally it's a push for a new, revitalized brand of an established franchise, undeservedly slammed by veteran critics for the strangest of reasons. Yes, it's not often on here you'll see these reviews going against critical opinion, but it's hardly half as bad as many are claiming. Not great to be sure, but it's hardly the abomination some would have you believe it is.
