X-Men: Apocalypse (PG) ***

X-Men Just Fighting For Summer Box Office Dollars With Lame Outing

By Alan Samuel

Sands of time come into play in the latest x-Men extravaganza known as E-Men: Apocalypse. Again Marvel and 20th Century combine to pull off a rousing action-packed event. Even the 3-D effects are engaging for a change as fans who pony up at Cineplex Odeon Theatres across B.C. Should easily confirm,

Back at the helm and impressive as hell is original director Bryan Singer. Once again the fate of the world is left hanging in the balance as a mystery force wants to take down and take out the mutants.  A young looking Charles Xavier finds himself firmly behind the eight ball as old friend Erik gets in his way.

Handsome James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender put their timeless friendship to the test as a cursed warrior  threatens to tear them and the world apart. Full of tension and an array of superheroes this new and improved X-Men story rocks. Inner turmoil rages I some of the heads of these magical characters giving the story added emotion and relevance,

Maybe a touch long Apocalypse has enough substance and surprises to appeal to most fans.
