Anybody seen this yet.
I went into it with zero expectations, and it turned out in my opinion pretty decent.
Not a great movie in any way but definitely not the worst X-Men movie by far, it was rather enjoyable.
It seemed like the first part in a multi part story, that is never going to happen.
The action scenes were done well and I'm not a big fan of Sophie Turner's acting abilities, I think she did a decent job here.

I haven't heard many good things about it. I actually prefer it sometimes when you go into seeing a movie with low expectations. Think I'll wait for video, though.....

It should have been a 3 movie lead up to this.
Movie A you need to have some development of Jean and Scott's relationship.

Movie B the Phoenix Saga.

Movie C the Dark Phoenix Saga.

You have to establish the people if you want us to care about the relationships.

They keep making Phoenix ugly and scary. She was based on the look of Farrah Fawcett and meant to be beautiful.

Did we get a flaming firebird in Central Park this time or a flaming firebird at all?

Marvel Ultimate Alliance made the mistake of giving us fusion powers but not one single combo gave a firebird visual when used with Jean Grey. Wasted opportunity to tap into what we loved about her as kids.

Unless something changes this one is not getting viewed until it's out on DVD since I'm not even sure it's worth Blue Ray prices. I might even wait and see if they offer it in a combo with the New Mutants train wreck still to come.
