The story of one of the X-Men's most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into her iconic alter ego. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all.

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 watch for future movies.

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 kept waiting for it to become interesting and see where it was going with this new take on the story. It never sparked for me at all.
I’m surprised the bigger names, playing some of these character’s roles, went onboard with this project.

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) stuff occured. Which means that this Dark Pheonix/Jean(Gene?) as well as EVERYONE ELSE is not the same as those characters from the Xmen movies that started this off back in the early 2000's. I could be wrong..but that was what most sites are saying - honestly just google it if you care enough.

I myself really enjoy these newer Xmen movies, perhaps even more than the the original Hugh Jackman led ones. But I think this one missed the mark in a lot of places - especially since the director/producers are making a movie within a series thats within another series. Where's the pre-movie recap of current events when you need it, eh?

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 doesn't seem scary. I blame the director.

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 mess.
But the effects were decent.

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?

CMLibrary_gjd_posted the best line from Raven (J Law:) and worth a repeat:

And by the way, the women are always saving the men around here. You might wanna think about changing the name to X-Women.

Raven : [to Charles] It's funny. I can't actually remember the last time you were the one risking something. And by the way, the women are always saving the men around here. You might wanna think about changing the name to X-Women.

Erik Lehnsherr : The world is on the brink!
Professor Charles Xavier : I'm sorry, I didn't stop this sooner...
Erik Lehnsherr : You're always sorry, Charles. And there's always a speech. But nobody cares!
