X-Men: Apocalypse begins in 3600 BC, as En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse, as we come to know him) is attempting to move his consciousness and powers to a new body, one that possesses the power of rapid healing, so that it can be added to his collection of abilities. While this happens he is to be protected by his four greatest warriors who unfortunately fail, but not before the transition is complete just as the ceremony chamber collapses into the earth. After a few thousand years, stupid men dig him up and unleash upon Earth...well, the Apocalypse. One which only our beloved gaggle of X-Men can help avert.
This special episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast is dedicated to Bryan Singer's fourth and latest go-round at mutant history as he takes on his most challenging film and foe yet. Where does it end up in the lexicon of Marvel's X-Men films? Did it deserve the critical lashing many have given it? Is Apocalypse everything it could have been? We discuss this film in detail, both spoiler-free and aplenty, so don't miss our X-Men: Apocalypse Reactions Podcast.
