'X-Men: Apocalypse': A Promising Film Marred By Over-Ambition And Self-Indulgence

The late American film critic, Roger Ebert, wrote in his review of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, more than three decades back: "Star Trek stories have always been best when they centered around their characters." One can say the same of X-Men stories. If they are good, they are so because of the characters. On those occasions they are not, the characterization, as well as the interplay between the characters, is to be blamed, as is the case with Apocalypse.
