Yes, guns are bad, humans are awful, and apes are cute. And then come the apes wielding machine guns and going kung-fu banzai on everyone’s asses, and everything begins to feel truly special.
Worst movie ever of 2014. Really.
Even in fantasy Viking-wannabe lands, there is no getting away from whiny self-absorbed teens with first world problems. What’s impressive is how he’s celebrated and rewarded for essentially setting in motion events that ruin the lives of the people around him.
This reinterpretation of Maleficent as a misunderstood creature has Angelina Jolie and… well, not much else. Comparisons to Frozen are inevitable, and there is no way this one comes out looking good.
Wolverine is in this one, but fortunately, he doesn’t take the limelight away from the complicated relationship of Magneto, Charles Xavier, and Mystique. This movie isn’t very original, but it can still be a blast to watch.
Not only are younger Charles Xavier, Erik Lensherr, and Raven Darkholme much cooler than their older counterparts, this movie make them larger-than-life characters to remember. Oh, and the homoerotic moments, let’s not overlook them.
