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.

Goofs

(at around 12 mins) The damaged shuttle is spinning because a thruster is firing. When this is destroyed, it slows down to a halt almost instantly. In the vacuum of space, this would not happen. It would remain spinning fast, while decelerating slowly due to the opposing thrusters firing. Conservation of angular momentum in action. See 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.
