Don't make him angry.

Dope

Surreal seeing him jumping on a Sentinel. Almost a dream come true.

After watching First Class again I do wish they'd found a healthier medium between the two looks, but that may change after I see this movie. X Men Apocalypse better have some phuckin costumes tho. First Class better not be the last time I see the X Men

@omega

after DOFP the use of the costumes could be somewhat justified, maybe used them to hide their identities from the public as best they can.

ive always felt that for the movies, the reason wolverine uses a costume was to protect his identity given how he has the healing factor, making him age slowly, and the claws making his hands an extra lethal weapon.

The Sentinel action looks very good.

@Friday

Not saying it is going to turn out the same but didn't ASM 2 have around a 90-92% on RT this early in the reviews and it dropped to 55%. All I am saying don't use RT when only 12 people have submitted reviews.
MrFridayNights - 5/13/2014, 9:02 AM
@pesmerga44 TASM2 was on 76% with 12 reviews
0megaDaGod - 5/13/2014, 9:08 AM
RT is impossible to guage. Marvel Studios films normally start high and then drop because the more lenient international critics get the movie first and aren't as critical of it, which at times leads to a sharp decline if US critics aren't fond of it once they get ahold of it a week later

But with TASM2 and DOFP, the movie is released in the US first and some other countries late while others simultaneously. So the score could go up, down and then back up again over the course of 3 weeks as critics from different parts of the world are allowed to see it

Looks pretty badass. Gotta giggle at the mix of that god awful 70's suit and the light blue colouring of Hank. Delightfully horrendous.
PsyGuy - 5/13/2014, 9:12 AM
How many reviews until RT makes a consensus? It normally levels out after that...

Impressive....

And What MrFriday said....
pesmerga44 - 5/13/2014, 9:21 AM
On RT a movie isn't certified fresh or rotten until around 100 reviewers have put in reviews I believe.
HankBeastMcCoy - 5/13/2014, 9:51 AM
I look Great here

SUCK IT FOX HATERS!!!!!!!!!!!



Although I want this movie to be terrific and I like what I am seeing, realistically it is WAY too soon for that score to mean anything.

After at least around 30 or 40 reviews can we get an indication of the general attitude of the critics towards this film when the reviews will start to level off.

14 isn't enough right now, and that score will likely have dropped by next week.
Humperdink - 5/13/2014, 10:18 AM
When all is said and done I bet this film will be 'certified fresh', with a rating in the high 80's to lower nineties.

Somewhere in the Cap 2 range.

It definitely doesn't seem like the critics are unhappy with it so far.
Sunnyd - 5/13/2014, 10:29 AM
@MrFridayNights
Let it go already calling people haters because they have a different opinion than you or dislike a studio you like makes you sound like a child.
All the X men movies have decent ratings on RT so maybe you should wait until we see the end BO before talking smack or better even just don't talk smack at all and just say how you loved it and list reasons why.
PsyGuy - 5/13/2014, 12:29 PM
Yeah, its at 93 now with only 14 reviews...

Since the embargo lifted today, hopefully we'll get a better idea pretty soon!

marvel72 - 5/13/2014, 3:17 PM
as for rotten tomatoes,it'll finish up somewhere in the 80s.
OstrichBane - 5/14/2014, 4:08 AM
He will change the future.
He gives his life in an epic heroic fashion.
jdillander91 - 5/15/2014, 6:11 AM
Watch he'll get rid of the serum and accept the Beast within
