From the atrocious ashes named "Apocalypse", X-MEN's worst nightmare, "Dark Phoenix" revivifies as a sometimes mediocre yet surely fun ending. Simon Kimberg is a experienced screenwriter but its screenplay is unripedly half-baked, and he is a first-time director but its action sequences are excitingly choreographed. Yet, he misunderstands the useless wastes and sacrifices of women is female empowerment, just idiotic.
Thoughts: The train sequence by itself is worth the ticket and more. It's visually expressive; with pleasing shots and clear action. Seeing the real world consequences of their actions has always been a highlight of the X-Men movies and this doesn't disappoint. I'm saddened to see the series—which has nevertheless yielded uneven results—pass into what will presumably be the stylistic homogeneity of Marvel Studios.
This was a solid female empowerment film and one of the best X-Men films I've seen of recent. Sophie Turner gives an incredible performance as a woman in an existential crisis and everyone telling what she should be. Definitely a socially conscious comic book film that delivers on the action just as much as it does the social commentary.
Disposable endpoint to the current incarnation of Marvel's mopey, moral super-heroes, as dull as dishwater and wasting a castload of talent in emoting-by-numbers moves; it's the girls who shine, but the film does them no favours.
An unfocused script and mostly mediocre performances should have sunk this late 'X-Men' entry but several well shot sequences and a dynamite turn by Fassbender make this worth a watch. The train sequence is dynamite with a great mix of cgi and physical effects. Turner fails to impress here as Jean Grey.
After watching this movie, I think DARK PHOENIX isn't as bad as some people said. It's surprisingly nice. In my opinion, it doesn't deserve the hate it got. I know, the plot is quite messy and some parts are quite inconsistent. Also, the villain is a one-dimentional character. Her main motivation is less menacing. It a shame, I think. Because, the actors/actresses already gave an amazing performance. Still great tho.
God, this film is a mess. I've completely given up thinking about how time works in this franchise, the dialogue is quite stiff, as is the camera (so static), and the story overall was just very very meh. The only good thing about this movie were the actors who tried to do the most with what they were given, which wasn't much. I'm glad this messy franchise is finally over, but man, what a bummer to go out on.
It should have been Matthew Vaughn the one to put some closure to this series. Not Simon Kinberg who doesn't have enough experience.
The script was kinda weak and couldn't managed properly all the fine resources.
It was nice once again to watch McAvoy and Fassbender reprising those iconic characters.
6.5/10. Jessica Chastain and Sophie Turner were kinda awful, really didn't like these two.
