Looks like the X-Men franchise can't get away from the three-quel curse. A plodding mess of unoriginal, lazy storytelling that got lost in its own supposed grandiosity and forgetting that what made the first two films of the reboots such standouts were acknowledging and respecting the amazing amount of talent that the cast possessed. Even the humour here felt cheap, tired and inorganic. In the end, even the end-credits tease felt unearned. 3D definitely not required.
