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

Reprising her role as Mystique for this film, marks the second time that Jennifer Lawrence has played a character for the fourth time in a franchise. She played Katniss Everdeen four times in The Hunger Games series as well. See more »

Goofs

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.

Why was this even made?
15 June 2019 | by MarkyLouiGSee all my reviews

For the love of all things unholy, why was this movie even made? I feel like the X-MEN franchise is shooting their own foot with every single release. Dark Phoenix was painful to watch; the story itself didn't give us a reason to watch the damn thing. And by that I mean the film does absolutely nothing for the franchise. They probably could've done better if they just skipped this movie completely. There is no connection to X-MEN apocalypse at all and quite frankly I feel like this movie negates the entire events of X-MEN apocalypse. This is the second go at telling the story of the Jean Grey-Phoenix angle and I think this probably was worse than the first one; at least the first one had Wolverine in it. Sophie Turner is a great actress and I certainly am not discounting her talent for acting but for me she just isn't Jean Grey. She had no connection to the character and it didn't help that it was weird listening to her. I think that was because she was trying to hide her accent. Also what is up with her makeup? She's destroying houses, killing people; she literally has blood on her shirt but still has perfect hair and makeup. Probably the best thing about the film was that one Nightcrawler scene; there's this one scene where Nightcrawler is pissed off and it looked bad-ass. All in all I think this was one of the more awful X-MEN movies. You really don't care about the story, characters are forgettable and uninspiring, arcs are just all over the place and again there is nothing to this film.
