X-Men: Beyond Good and Evil (1995) - Film Capsule

Heroes: The X-Men (including with Cable and Bishop)

Villains: Apocalypse, Magneto, and Mr. Sinister

Diabolical Scheme: Apocalypse wanted to simultaneously kill a bunch of psychics to reshape time for his own purposes.

Coolest Moment(s): The Magneto Wolverine team-up at the end was nice. It was also good to see Angel and Psylocke in on the action.

Worst Moment: Cables son was a major wuss and the time stream custodian / inventor AKA Bender AKA Immortus in disguise was one of the most annoying characters ever and a major detractor from the story.

Review in 50 Words or Less: Apocalypse finally got his big story in an event that probably could have been told in fewer episodes. Even still, it was jam packed with X-Men and villains and plenty of smack downs. Too bad Bishop was so poorly used; his stories are usually my favorites.
