There are some superhero flicks that have been made in Hollywood. Some among those show the gloomy atmosphere, with the dingy background. Such movies handle the peril of the earth themes. Other is the one which shows everything in a good light. Bryan Singer has come out with a wonderful superhero thriller this time, with dark and dingy background scenes. Maybe, the director Bryan Singer knew that audiences would be fed up with watching the same characters over and over in the screen. He has turned up with some more interesting characters in the latest X-Men movie.
Mutants are trying to destroy the world. There are also the protagonists in the movie who try to save the world from peril at the hands of the mutants. There is one mutan, Apocalypse, who comes back to life after being buried under a pyramid for more than a millennium. A mysterious someone happens to be the reason for his wake up. The mutant has got some mystic powers which could burn up the entire world. And here comes the role of some able characters in saving the world from the clutches of evil. There is plenty of bloodshed in the movie and sufficient hair-raising sequences that could pin the audiences to their seats.
Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Jodi Smith have done the roles of mutants, and their performance is above par. Evan Peters has done the role of Quicksilver in the movie. His slow motions could be enjoyed very much on the big screen. Oscar Isaac has performed the Apocalypse on the screen, but he fails to create an indelible impression in the minds of the audiences.
Those who go to theaters regularly will know that the stuff is the same as in the movie The Mummy. The diehard fans of the X-Men series might find the movie interesting. Otherwise, although the visual effects prove to be a treat to fans, the story is clichéd in the sense that X-Men have been viewed several times. More importance could have been given to the superhero characters in the movie. The movie gives the effect of reading through a comic book. The sequences in the movie give a fair hint that many more such X-Men movies might hit the theaters in your vicinity.
