The first reviews have now landed for X-Men: Apocalypse and the reception has not been very rosy. The Rotten Tomatoes rating is not certified fresh right now.
If you visit Rotten Tomatoes right now, you will see that X-Men Apocalypse only has a 45 percent rating based off of 33 reviews so far. It’s possible the rating could go up or down, but it’s unlikely to reach the positive numbers that its predecessors received.
In comparison, X-Men: First Class has a respectable 87 percent rating while X-Men: Days of Future Past got a 91 percent rating. Many people are surprised by this as it’s the first rotten Bryan Singer directed X-Men movie.
Many of the criticisms is that the film wants to explain too much in a short amount of time. Other reviewers criticized some of the acting outside of Professor X, Magneto and Quicksilver.
Speaking of Quicksilver, he is still said to be the star of the show again. Many praised the character in Days of Future Past and he shines yet again in Apocalypse from the sounds of things.
You will be able to make up your own mind when the movie comes out in North America on May 27th. The movie will be released earlier than that in other countries.
