This is the 5th movie in the suggested X-men chronology .
However , this movie will confuse watchers who will watch the next one since Raven who gets killed in this movie (as suggested in the trailer) is alive in the next film in the…Read moreRead more of this comment

My pthy comment timed out, so I'll summarize this as an unengaging action movie with too much posing and not enough sense to get in out of the rain. It felt like its entire existence was simply to back fill some missing plot in whatever…Read moreRead more of this comment

Disappointing. Better than the Last Stand, but not by much. Action sequences are good, but Jessica Chastain was wasted as a character in this movie. I like the X-Men franchise and I'm hoping Disney will give it a shot in the arm.

I really like X-men but this one just didn't quite cut it. The performers were just not convincing enough. Really feels like watching a bunch of people putting on costumes. The only good performances were by Sophie Turner. She's one to…Read moreRead more of this comment

Strays away from source material straight away. The issues of the X-Men that covered the Dark Phoenix sega had a really great story and character development. It may have been more interesting if they followed that somewhat.
Dull film. I…Read moreRead more of this comment

Okay - So during this movie I felt what most people have; confused, annoyed, and even more confused. What I've found in my searches is that due to the events in Xmen Apocalypse some timey-whimey (aka someone messed with the time lines)…Read moreRead more of this comment

Starts out excellent, up until the point Jean gets the Phoenix power. Then it gets very confusing. I'm sure Sophie Turner is a talented actress, but she has no presence as Dark Phoenix.
Even when doing crazy murderous things, she just…Read moreRead more of this comment

There is something fundamentally wrong with any Dark Phoenix story where the main villain is not Dark Phoenix. I think the saddest part of this movie is that it could've been great and it felt like it really tried, but it's just kind of a…Read moreRead more of this comment

I wholeheartedly agree with danomcd. The movie is disjointed and very choppy at points. The characters are under-developed and the story line not cohesive. It appears that this was remnants of a longer movie. I would have liked to have…Read moreRead more of this comment

I gave a 3 because although it was a good movie they killed off a main character. Only for her to be brought back to life for X-men, X-2 and X-men United. Were they just not paying attention or simply hoping people don't pay attention?

I have been avoiding watching this because I was really worried that they would mess up another good Marvel storyline. Sadly they did. There is no emotional connection with these actors/characters thus you couldn't care less what happens…Read moreRead more of this comment

Great special effects, but it didn't feel like the real X-Men were playing. First of all,
no Wolverine, and most characters were played by cheap imitations. Seems like things are cooling off w/ X-Women.

I am a sucker for superhero origin stories and pretty much enjoyed this film, thanks to some good special effects, set design and the all star cast with young Sophie Jonas reprises her role as Jean Grey (first appeared in the 2016 X-Men:…Read moreRead more of this comment
I was surprised to see so many bad reviews on this movie. I personally loved that they made a proper Dark Phoenix movie after XMen-The Last Stand bombed so badly. I especially liked how Jean Grey got a chance to redeem herself in this one,…Read moreRead more of this comment

I was disappointed in this movie. Had a tough time to keep awake to watch it. Found it overdone and felt the franchise just put the movie out just to squeeze a few more dollars out of the story. What happened? I was actually right into…Read moreRead more of this comment
