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.

A so so X-Men film
5 June 2019 | by tombarnes-31615See all my reviews

To be honest I was expecting more from a $200 million movie the story was ok but the acting was very wooden. You didn't connect with the bad guys or in deed the X-Men. If I were a betting man I would say it's going to struggle to break even this may lose even more money than water world did
