Come on, you know you did. We all did. That was without a shadow of doubt the worst xmen movie yet. Yes, worse than origins and the last stand. And that’s before we get to the plot, pacing, law phoning it in, Sansas horribly distracting American accent, coupled with her wooden one dimensional acting.
That is the one good thing about the end of thrones. Sansa can stop being a thing now.
It had some nice action scenes, but that was really it.
Agreed. This and Apocalypse were pitiful efforts by Simon Kinberg.
The man is still stuck in the mindset he thinks he’s giving fans what they want even though he hasn’t a clue about how to tell a good story arc and develop characters over multiple films.
Fans want Apocalypse, here he is, no Thanos level build up. Fans want the Dark Phoenix Story, here it is in only Sophie Turner’s second movie in this franchise.
So glad we might actually get some X-Men movies now that do the characters and storylines justice. Even the early Singer movies are frustrating in how they sideline Cyclops and basically become The Wolverine show.
It’s a shame we’re going to have to wait a while for that to happen though, I can’t see Marvel Studios rebooting X-Men for at least another 5 years so they can distance themselves as far away from this turd as possible.
How was it worse than Origins? When was the last time you watched that movie because the effects in it were terrible.
“Effects”. Jesus Christ.
The effects were just one of the film’s many problems. Dark Phoenix at least gave its protagonist an arc.
While Origins pretended to have one. It kept saying that Wolverine was an “animal” but never showed it, so his arc fell flat.
