    I love this movie. Sophie Turner is a better jean grey, which by the way my least favorite xmen. I agree with you in some parts of your review though.

        Mystique: "Last I checked it was the women that are always saving the men around here... Maybe you should think about changing the name to X-Wahmen."

        Mystique has never saved anyone, has never sacrificed anything, and is always being saved. She also stated that Charles Xavier never sacrificed anything and just put kids lives at risk.

        Okay, so Charles was shot in the back when he blocked a bullet that was meant for someone else. Charles also gave up his ability to walk by using his powers to SAVE THE WORLD AND THE ENTIRE FUCKING TIMELINE, to fix an event in time that would see the world and every living thing on Earth destroyed... An event that MYSTIQUE created.

        Also, Gene from the original movies was a kind, caring person... Gene in Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix is a pretentious, arrogant, stuck-up, whiney little bitch who never earned her powers, and never sacrificed anything, but loves lecturing people on their "evil maleness."

        Huh... I'm sensing a theme here.

          I agree on your rating. Yes it should've been rated R. Can we also agree that at least it was better than Apocalypse?

            I think it’s a C+.

            Slightly better. I could never get into Apocalypse. The story was predictable.

            We should all be grateful to Simon Kinberg
            He wrote X-men: The last stand, a terrible adaptation of the Dark Phoenix saga that ended the original X-men flim series
            Wrote & Directed Dark Phoenix, a terrible adaptation of the Dark Phoenix saga that ended the NEW X-men flim series
            Wrote & Produced Fant4stic, a terrible adaptation of the Fantastic Four so bad that it made the shitty 2000s look okay
            Managed to guide both X-men and Fantastic Four to financial and popular failure, so when Kevin Feige reboots them for the MCU no one will miss the old ones!
            Thank You Simon Kinberg

              But can we all agree that this was literally the best scored Marvel ANYTHING movie of all time??? It was essentially a waste of Hans Zimmer's score. That was my absolute favorite thing about this movie. Everything else was just "meh" - couldn't care at all. Worst way to wrap up the Fox underwhelming use of Marvel content.

                            A problem I had was how much they downplayed storms character and her powers. She’s nothing like the comics

                                I wish it had as much action as infinity war then it would have been a badass X-men movie. It’s still a good movie but being that it’s supposed to be a climax in the timeline it deserved twice as much action and intensity.

                                      Absolutely second to none acting! Loved it. My daughter said it was too cliche and over drawn. But I really liked it and I don’t like super hero movies

                                        i do not understand why raven died and shes there in X-men one and the last stand .. why jean died but shes there when shes older it seems like a totally different movie where things do not add up

                                          I don’t know why you think an R rating would be a solution. you can have Jean be an extremely dangerous character without an R rating. Thanos in infinity war and endgame was an extremely dangerous force beyond anything we’ve ever seen in the MCU with a PG 13. this movie just needed to put more time and care into fleshing out the story. more blood wouldn’t have fixed anything.

                                                  Gives it the same score as the much more highly-acclaimed Captain Marvel, huh.

                                                    Dark Phoenix is the best xmen yet. I'm pretty brutal when these guys kick out a crappy movie. I thought this one was awesome. Non stop action, great acting, a stand alone-ish storyline, sick special effects, expert directing, top class cinematography. The last one was trash. This is an easy 9/10. Rivals Ragnarock for the best Marvel flick imho.

                                                      @Slap shot Studios1708 - Logan was of great quality. Were I solely relying on mature good taste, I would agree with you. A non-R rated Logan just doesn't compensate me for my investment in the character from a young age though. I gave Dark Phoenix high marks for being able to adapt an equally bleek, super long, super mature series into a couple hour movie that both adults and kids enjoyed. As I reflect, I'm also super impressed with how little campy, man-child BS was in this movie, if any at all; Similar to Logan.

                                                        The way dark Phoenix connects to days of future past is that she’s alive at the end of dark Phoenix cuz u see her and in the sky so that’s how she’s still alive in days of future past and I mean u never see the front of the school at the end of days of future past so it could still be called jean grey school for the gifted it connects perfectly well

                                                          The movie also connects to Days of Future Past in that it shows what Xavier did to keep Jean from turning evil in the new timeline.

I knew then that they would never be able to do this story justice on film. Plus you have a studio just trying to hurry up and finish this series of movies. Not spend 200 mil and make a smash hit two hour R rated Bonanza of Awesomeness. Just lets get it over with cause we're not gonna make any more. Plus. And this could just be my cynicism coming through lol. But when Hollywood is in the middle of making every female lead into the perfect Mary Jane Superhero of Indestructible Perfect Blandness. Well God forbid Jean gets put on screen as an emotionally flawed uncontrollable force of evil destruction. That threatens the lives of all of the universe. I mean. They aren't making a movie about my ex wife after all HAHAHAHAHA. BUH DUMP DUMP. But seriously. Could u imagine the Feminazi Meems that would come out of a movie like that. Nope . Boring. Bland. Hollywood.

                                                                            Another issue was them not sticking to their ending of their last movie (apocalypse), where Jean has the Phoenix force already inside her. The audiences didn’t like it, and were sort of like “they screwed up Phoenix AGAIN just like X-Men 3”. The writers saw that and decided to just ignore the ending of Apocalypse and act like it never happened. This disjointed writing is a big reason the last few movies haven’t been well received. They’ve sort of become almost one-offs that share a universe.

                                                                            • Ryan Maliek

Lack of continuity, radical changes to characters (Apocalypse for instance), and crazy timelines are what killed this franchise. They should have stopped with Logan.

                                                                            • sean clayton

                                                                            • Ryan Maliek

We already know that it wasn’t in X 2 and 3, and that it was completely wrong and fans hated it. That’s why it was so stupid that they made that horrible choice AGAIN in Apocalypse. Also, the timeline was erased because of DOFP, so it makes no sense that they would follow X 2 or 3 again. They fucked it up as usual, and decided to try to retcon it after the fact.

                                                                            • Mind Job

That movie came out in 2003 and X3 they said it was her mutant power. X2 and X3 co-writer Zak Penn confirmed this in an interview back in 2008. So why would you think it was a cosmic entity in Apocalypse?

                                                                                Part of the reason this movie was so disliked is because people expected it to be like Endgame--a finale. But it's really not and was probably never intended to be during the writing, considering the Disney merger wasn't finalized. It's just a standalone X-men film. And AS a standalone X-men film... it's alright. Not nearly as bad as people made it out to be, the acting was actually pretty good when people had expected it to be atrocious. The main downside was the bland villains (but that's hardly new for superhero films). I'd say about half of the film is even pretty good, going over Jean's backstory, her emotions, how the Pheonix affects her actions, etc... then the villains show up and from there the plot goes super bland and predictable (even if the cast is trying super hard to be invested).

                                                                                So I'd give it a A- in the acting department, maybe C for bland plot and F in the villain department.
