    For 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' think Old Testament, wrath-of-God-like stuff

    One night a few years ago, director Bryan Singer was at the Saddle Ranch Chop House in Los Angeles, half-drunk, having a good time when a dark cinematic vision popped into his head.

    'X-Men: Apocalypse' review: McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence are just X-meh

    The stakes in the boringly apocalyptic “X-Men: Apocalypse” (opening May 26) couldn’t be higher.  Its long-entombed, ready-to-party mutant god, played by Oscar Isaac is both invincible and immortal, and he wants to control every single mind in every single human on Earth.
