Movie review: 'X-Men Apocalypse,' '80s-set action flick has superhero-size violence and fab effects

Parents need to know that "X-Men: Apocalypse" (the third film in the "X-Men: First Class" reboot series), pits the super-powered heroes against a mighty foe who's bent on nothing less than laying waste to the whole world. Expect plenty of superhero-style action violence; aside from one sequence with some disturbing slashing, it's not particularly gory, but it does involve lots of combat, destruction, and weapons. There's also some swearing (mostly "piss," "damn," etc., but there's one use of "f--k"), a couple of scantily clad characters, and a few intense scenes centering around one character's loss of his family. Most of the popular X-Men from the prior movies are back, and there are a few new ones, too; overall, they're a pretty diverse bunch, with several strong women. And in the end, the story showcases the value of teamwork.

Though largely unknown, Trump finds fans in China

China features prominently in the rhetoric of presumed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who accuses the country of stealing American jobs and cheating at global trade. In China though, he's only just emerging as a public figure, despite notoriety elsewhere for his voluble utterances, high-profile businesses and reality TV shows.
