Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - This final installment of the long-running X-Men superhero
series is more of a drama than previous installments. While there
are big action sequences, particularly toward the end, it is
generally talkier, slower, and darker. Sophie Turner is the focus
this time out, and while James McAvoy is still prominent, Michael
Fassbender and especially Jennifer Lawrence have much more reduced
roles, and series newcomer Jessica Chastain has only a fairly small
supporting role. Some language, violence, and dark subject matter
make the film too intense for the youngest of children.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average ...simply has nothing going on under the surface, and that's pretty bland too. It is a joyless, lifeless, boring affair that repeats ideas from better X-films and feels more like an obligatory reunion cash grab than a deeply considered goodbye to iconic characters.
USA TodayFull Review Average "Dark Phoenix” finishes off the X-Men movie saga in frustratingly middling fashion, however fitting for a superhero franchise that only just a few times actually reached its cinematic potential. ...the movie feels small for something with such humongous, universe-shattering stakes – and not in a good way.
NY PostFull Review Above Average ...pretty far-fetched even for a franchise about rare genetic mutations that allow people to read minds and shoot lasers from their eyes. It's not bad, just crazy. ...It's a messy plot that takes away from the excellent acting...
