"Everything they've built, will fall!" is the perfect quote to sum up the soft rebooting of the X-Men franchise since First Class introduced us to young Professor X and Magneto and Days of Future Past rewrote their timeline. Despite having a much stronger template to work from, X-Men: Apocalypse does nothing interesting with the characters except jog in place, developing a future brand instead of telling a good story. But at least they didn't go the Terminator Genesys way of convoluting us into the present day with a bunch of nonsense time travel jargon, instead planting their feet in the 80s with big hair and square shouldered jackets.
