There's two movies inside of Apostle. The first is a thriller where a man suffering from PTSD after travels abroad is looking for his sister who is being held for ransom by a mysterious cult. This movie is pretty good. Its gorgeously shot, well paced, introduces lots of fleshed out characters and wraps up viewers into its snowballing tension. It also has a small undercurrent of something supernatural afoot. Its that supernatural stuff that takes over in the third act, shifting from subtle to outright ridiculousness once the curtain is drawn back on everything that is going on. Its a dang shame too, because Apostle really had the punch to be something great.

The man who made me fall in love with music…
A singer, songwriter, musician, composer, outstanding performer, the best front man of all times, a legend and simply a remarkable person… No matter how you feel or what you are currently going through in your life, there is a Queen song for it. A man with a vision cannot die, for his legacy lives on forever…

I must admit that when they relaunched the X-Men series to focus on their origins as teens led by a young Xavier and Magneto, I rolled my eyes. But First Class and Days of Future Past are probably the best two out of all of them, maybe X2 nudges them a tad. I had high hopes for Apocalypse, one of the most revered X-Men storylines. Couple that with the addition of Oscar Isaac as the lead villain, and the recipe was there for a home run. Sadly, Apocalypse stumbles too much in execution to be great. Issac does an admirable job playing the part, especially because his dialogue is largely cookie cutter super villain garbage. There are also too many moments to pick apart, questionable plot holes you could do a 20 minute YouTube video on, which people have. Now all that bad aside, its not a total miss. Singer does a good job at dialing up the special effects that are customary for a film of this caliber. The Quicksilver scenes especially once again are a highlight. Its just too bad the smoke and mirrors weren't enough to mask the stage show better.
