I’m not crazy about the voice Oscar Isaac is using – a rare instance where one of his choices seems off – but I think it’s clear the early images of his Apocalypse were unfinished. With the right light and digital augmentation, he looks like who he’s supposed to be.
It hadn’t really registered with me that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is not a major player in this, which is fine – not that I dislike him, but the last time he got sidelined, First Class was the result, and it was more interesting than The Wolverine Show.
Yes, there is another large suspension bridge to attack, but no, I don’t see the “Fox Forest” that the company is so fond of using for action backdrops. Looks okay so far. And the first clueless critic who claims “It just looks like a toy commercial” can be smacked…with KNOWLEDGE…that Hasbro doesn’t make toys of the Fox Marvel movies…yeah.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
