Hello, again! This post will tell you about my first impression of X-Men: Apocalypse.

We all know that this movie is from the X-Men‘s franchise. I watched this movie accidentally (in case you want to know why the first sentence in this post was trying to tell you that this post is about my first impression about this movie). But yeah, Marvel had astonished me once again.

I had no idea about this movie. “What is the X-Men?” or “What is the story about?” I asked my friend first. His name is Valen. He said, “X-Men is a school for mutants.” And I got that easily. I thought, “Okay, so I think it will be a very good movie then.” I also watched the trailer. But I hate it because the fighting scenes were all about the green scene. And also unfortunately, you can see it clearly in just a blink.

So, how was the full version?

Okay, it was my very first time of watching X-Men. And I have to say that the movie was really good. I mean, it was REALLY GOOD. It was stunning and brilliant. I really love the story line and the way they shocked me. There was the times when I won’t do a single blink. I hate it but it’s true. Because the movie was great and you do not want to spent any seconds even just for a blink. Lol, sorry if this is too much (but once again, it is true).

Can you tell me about your favorite parts?

Favorite parts. Hm, aku selalu suka film action yang memuat unsur komedi di dalamnya. Mungkin porsi yang terlalu banyak akan mengurangi ketegangan penonton. Namun ketika humor itu dilontarkan di sela-sela ketegangan, kurasa penonton akan menyukainya (like I do). Dan di film ini, kurasa Quicksilver dan Nightcrawler memegang peran penting dalam menyuguhkan unsur komedi di sela-sela film yang berjalan terus menegangkan. Selain itu, kemampuan tersembunyi yang dimiliki oleh para tokoh juga membuatku terus merasa penasaran (terlebih ketika ini menjadi kali pertama aku menonton film dari franchise X-Men).

Menurutku, semua tokoh memegang peran penting dalam film ini. Terlebih karena mereka membangun film ini menjadi film yang harus ditonton. Aku menyukai bagaimana Scott (Cyclops) yang pada awalnya sulit menerima “bakat”nya, hingga ia mampu menggunakannya untuk membantu memusnahkan En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse). Aku juga menyukai Jean. Banyak teman-teman di sekolahnya, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, yang awalnya meledek dan melihat Jean dengan tatapan aneh karena bakatnya yang dianggap aneh. Namun pada akhirnya Jean menjadi yang terkuat dan memiliki peran utama dalam pemusnahan Apocalypse.

Overall this story has good messages for the audiences. This is a very good movie. It’s recommended. For me, its score is 5/5. WHAT A BRILLIANT MOVIE! I loved it.
