It has been several months since The X-Men stopped William Stryker, but that victory came at a price: they have lost Jean Grey when she tried to save them from the collapsed reservoir. Scott Summers (Cyclops) is still grieving about her loss. One day, he comes out to the place where Jean Grey sacrificed herself. Jean Grey appears right in front of him. Meanwhile, the rift between humans and mutants has finally reached the boiling point. Humans have discovered what causes humans to mutate and have found a cure for the mutation. The X-Men are appalled at this idea. When news about the cure comes to Magneto, he decides to organize an army of mutants and wage his war against the humans. When Jean Grey evolves into the Phoenix, her new mutant powers are so strong that she can not control her own body. Then, she kills off Professor X with her new powers. Now, The X-Men must stop Magneto again and put an end to the war against the humans, as well as stop Jean Grey's Phoenix powers. Written by
According to writer Simon Kinberg, the film's plot is inspired from the "X-Men" storylines 'The Dark Phoenix Saga' (the appearance of the Phoenix) and 'Gifted' (the development of a cure for the mutant gene, sparking controversy and conflict among mutants and humans). The 'Phoenix' story represented the main/emotional theme of the film and the 'Gifted' story would be the political subplot. See more »

I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, Charles. When are you going to stop lecturing me?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
When you start listening. And you're here because I need you.

This film is a perfect case for why Hollywood isn't doing well at the box office. The film takes a franchise of two good films and regurgitates generic Hollywood crap.
The dialogue in this film is full of cliché statements, and corny attempts at statements with deep meaning.. The dialogue sounds like the script of a novice, offering nothing to the characters.
Another failure of the film is character development. While the comics provide histories for the characters, none is given for the newly introduced characters. The viewer is left to simply accept the character at face value, without any explanation for their character, their history, or their power. Even the developed characters lack any depth of the previous films.
Overall the story seems rushed. The director seems to push the film forward through the action and thus the film suffers.
If you like the first two films then I would suggest not seeing this one. You would miss nothing.
