Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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 Post Full 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...
