Dark Phoenix is in theaters on June 7th, 2019.

Dark Phoenix is the last known X-Men movie to date. With beloved stars such as Dark Phoenix herself Sophie Turner and her castmates; Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Jessica Chasstain, and much much more this movie was just as important in bringing together the end of the X-Men as End Game did for the Avengers.

Before watching it, heard a lot of negative comments surrounding Dark Phoenix . Because of this and the fact that i forgot, I didn't watch the trailer so going into the theatre to watch the movie I was fully captivated by the storyline and how it all played together.

Unfortunately when it finished i couldn't help but feel disappointed with the ending. Besides a few parts where I cringed and felt the scene could have been redone, the plot felt rushed and jumbled together. As though they tried to mimic previous movies but squeezed the ending into one movie instead of taking their time to form the enemy and plot. Instead it felt as though the enemy they were facing was placed there just as a stepping stone and helping hand for Jean Grey. It made me, as part of the audience feel like the production was not given the amount of time necessary to make a better storyline and/or performance. Without any spoilers, I would not recommend this movie if you consider yourself a fan of the X-Men franchise unless you want to be disappointed.

Disclaimer: I am not a diehard fan of marvel to the point where i have read the comics but i have watched all the movies and can say that Dark Phoenix was a let down.

Rating: 3 out of 5
