After my long hiatus into the world of academia, I have returned- only a little bit older, and probably not much wiser.
I have to say, returning to X-Men after almost a long a hiatus was refreshing. The new cast members certainly breath new life into the franchise, especially as some of the old members- such as Jennifer Lawrence- no longer seem very interesting or 2-dimensional at all.
I especially enjoyed the addition of Sophie Turner, who shined as Jean Grey. Jean and Scott Summers’ budding romance was nicely touched upon. I wish I could say as much about the characterization of the villains, which did little to introduce them and their back stories.
All in all, Apocalypse was a return to form for the little Days of Future Past detour.
