Singer directed "X-Men", "X2", "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "X-Men: Apocalypse." This record was eventually matched three years later by the Russo Brothers, who have made four films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. X-Men Apocalypse was the big finale of the X-Men movie saga. I’m not counting Logan as that doesn’t really involve many of the other X-Men. This movie is it. As a result, the expectations were quite high. The previous movie, X-Men : Day’s of Future Past, which was phenomenal. So it was a very tough act to follow.

Sure, "Apocalypse" is no "Days of Future Past," and Jennifer Lawrence seems like she's still filming "Hunger Games" propos with a few too many rally-the-troops speeches, but this is an "X-Men" movie.
