Okay so this isnt really a review of the X-men movie I waited a week and nobody has posted about it yet. So like Popeye "I can;t stands no more". I am supposed to be the unofficial Horror movie reviewer after all.
This will be full of spoilers so if you havent seen the movie and want to see the movie stop reading this.
The first question I have is at the end of the movie they showed Jean at the school and all that. So was that to mean that everything in the time line changed? Because Wolverine killed Jean. which was even showed in one of his memories. and as I was remarking to a friend that would make one of the movies irrelevant. another question why were there not more X-men int he past, to battle the sentinel's?
ANd the next thing I just have to say is like a critique or a comlaint take it how you want. wouldnt it have been better if they said Mystique has found a way to travel back in time to try and kill trask, we have to stop her. as oppose to thats how the normal time line was?

At the very end of the credits you see four men on a horse looking along as a rather blue looking and very skinny young man who literally builds a pyramid with his fancy super powers...it's about 15-20 second clip...
I had my two young boys with me and I wish I had seen the movie alone...they had way too many questions although I'm very excited the way it turned out...happy to see the gang back together..

In case no one knew...the speedster was Quicksilver and the little girl he was cradling towards the end of the movie was his little Sister...better known as The Scarlet Witch...both are Magneto's children.
Also, I believe they wanted to do the time travel to "reboot" the franchise...am hoping they do a better job this time around.
According to the writers at Marvel, "En Sabah Nur" translates to "The First One" in Arabic. However, the phrase actually translates into something more akin to "Good Morning". The reason is that the term is grammatically incorrect, as it should be "Sabah an-Nur", assuming that was what the Marvel writers were shooting for. It can also mean "The Seven Lights"; with "Sabah" literally meaning "seven" and "Nur" meaning "light" in Arabic. This is interesting for Islam depicts the eternal afterlife as having seven heavens, and could be a direct reference to his god-like powers. Since Apocalypse was born thousands of years before modern Arabic existed, this must either be a translation of his true name, or it is a name in Proto-Semitic that simply coincidentally resembles Arabic words. 'En Sabah Nur' can also mean "birth of light","Awakened Light",and (in literal sense)"Dawn".

***** SPOILER ALERT *****
I enjoyed it but the only thing that didn't make sense was the old Charles being there in the future although he had been killed previously, desintegrated. I could understand to seeing him in the school at the end- after Logan changed the timeline - but before?
The ending that played after the credits in X-Men: The Last Stand. The professor transferred his consciousness into another man, which online sites have said was his twin brother.
