There's a lot to unpack about the latest installment of the franchise.

Honest Trailers found the latest X-Men film to be rather apocalyptic for the franchise's timeline and quality.

It starts off by praising director Bryan Singer for successfully launching the franchise with 2000's X-Men, points out that he wisely left when it got bad (2006's X-Men: The Last Stand) and returned again after Matthew Vaughn made it good again with 2011's X-Men: First Class ... but now the franchise is "bad again."

Among the trailer's gripes: the characters haven't aged in 21 years, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is the team leader though she was a villain one movie ago, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) "looks terrible," and Prof. X (James McAvoy) remains friends with Magneto (Michael Fassbender) even though he killed countless people in this movie. 

"This one is going through all the obligatory motions, with another Wolverine origin, another Quicksilver sequence, another aborted Phoenix saga, and the old standby — Charles and Erik being friends, becoming enemies, and being friends again," says the narrator.
