Storyline

The X-Men. Protectors of peace. Jean Grey is one of the most beloved X-Men. But when a mission goes wrong, Jean is exposed to a dark and ancient power. This power has destroyed everything it comes in contact with, until her. Now that this power is becoming unstable, she releases it with destruction and anger. Now that this foreign power is consuming her, and the world is threatened, the X-Men have to face an important truth: they must save either the world, or their friend who threatens it.

Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 8 mins) At the beginning of the movie when Professor X calls the President you get a good glimpse at his wheelchair. Its colour is blue with a white cross which reminds of the Scottish flag. This is a reference to James McAvoy's home country Scotland. You can see this again more clearly when he enters Cerebro shortly afterwards. See more »

Goofs

(at around 5 mins) When Jean is reading Charles' mind in New York, in the flashback, Charles can be seen driving an eight-year-old Jean to the school, but it was established that he was in a wheelchair then and had no control over his legs, and therefore couldn't drive. But X-Men: Days of Future Past revealed that he sometimes uses a drug to regain control of his legs (at the temporary expense of his powers), so it's possible he took minimal enough of a dose to be able to drive the car.

Quotes

Jean Grey: Who are we? Are we simply what others want us to be? Are destined to a fate beyond our control? Or can we evolve? Become... something more?

Enjoyed this
7 June 2019 | by damian5000See all my reviews

Not sure why the rating so low. Maybe people are spoiled by the epic galaxy class interweaving of stories with Avengers, Thor, Aquaman, Defenders of the Galaxy, Dr Strange? Was refreshing to not have the campy silly jokes and nice to have an Xmen that wasn't focused on Wolverine. Sophie Turner was awesome.
