Danielle Moonstar: There's a Native American proverb that says: Inside every person there are two bears, forever locked in combat for your soul. One bear is all things good: compassion, love, trust. The other is all things evil: fear, shame and self-destruction.

User Reviews

Hurray! The movie has finally been released, so now we can all move on with our lives.
30 August 2020 | by Tony_Fresh_ReviewsSee all my reviews

This movie was supposed to come out in 2017, so was it worth the wait? No, not really. I'll give the movie credit; it attempts something new with a superhero movie by adding in more horror elements. It would have definitely been a better movie if they had fully committed and made this for mature audiences. But the movie has its good moments, most of them coming in the action-packed finale. However, when it comes down to it, the movie was just boring and cliché. Most of the characters were forgettable besides their horribly inconsistent accents, which becomes almost hard not to laugh at. There were too many dumb moments that constantly took me out of the movie, which especially sucks when it had an extremely generic and predictable plot. It's definitely not the worst X-Men movie, but it's certainly a forgettable one. But hey, at least it's finally out and we can all move on now.

Score: 4 out of 10 Overall: Poor

Recommended for: Fans of the X-Men, fans of superhero movies, or fans of horribly inconsistent accents.
