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.

Trivia

During a podcast, director/screenwriter Simon Kinberg took responsibility for the movie's negative critical reception, stating that he was to blame for the fact that audiences could not connect with the film. However, he pointed mostly at Disney for the film's commercial failure, stating that it was their decision to release it just weeks after Avengers: Endgame (2019). Furthermore, in the wake of the Disney-Fox merger, lay-offs in the Fox marketing team led to serious delays in advertisement; when Disney finally took over marketing duties, only two months of advertisement remained before the release, where ten months would be standard.

So much hate for nothing
29 January 2020 | by djjimmisgrSee all my reviews

I was avoiding watching this movie with all the bad things I was hearing from friends or seeing how bad reviews it had everywhere. To my surprise the movie was very good. Sure it could be better if they did some things differently and more close to the original story or if they gave us more action but it was good enough for me. I hope that the next movie keeps the cast they are awesome.
