Before jumping into the bandwagon and calling this movie a travesty considering it is the telling of one of the most iconic moment in X-Men history, the Dark Phoenix saga one must first consider the following: that this movie was fashioned to tell the tale after considering the story progression of the other three X-Men movies (X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: First Class) and the development of those movies along with the roster of the X-Men in those movies so it is inconceivable to replicate the story of the much beloved comic book because it would not have made sense unless it was a stand alone movie, which it is not. Having said that, I thought it was quite admirable in keeping the essence of the original Dark Phoenix comic book saga but putting a spin on it and with that in mind, I thought it was really entertaining! A lot better than the previous X-Men: The Last Stand which also had the Dark Phoenix storyline. The action scene in the train scene towards the end of the flick was exhilarating. Sophie Turner who played Jean Grey was terrific. She captured her vulnerability, strength and quirkiness that discerning movie patrons may diss. That’s their loss. True X-Men fans such as I, that have read the comic books faithfully can see that she did an awesome job and she really did embodied Jean Grey. The theme of forgiveness, truth and family adds texture to the richness of the movie and what the X-Men stands for. An emotional, action packed movie that stayed true to the spirit of the comic book version that I thought was extremely well done.
