X-men: dark Phoenix – meh


It promised so much with Jean gray at the heart of the story.

Instead it is a dull mess. Sure, there are some neat events. And there are some defeats for some X-men which is a nice touch. Sadly, the relative absence of a story and some really poor lines combined with variable FX make for a sorry jumble that’s best avoided.

It was great to see quicksilver and nightstalker or whatever Kurt’s character is called do some neat stuff. Especially Kurt getting annoyed with the bad guys. On those bad guys, despite the tedious exposition by Jessica chastain’s character they were all a bit underused and lacked any real depth.

I was told that this is the last of this set of X-men movies. I hope whatever comes next is better.
