Dark Phoenix Teaser Poster with new release date.jpg

Dark Phoenix is a 2019 film in the X-Men film series and my full-time favorite of the series.

Good Qualities

  1. It does what it seemed no X-Men movie could do: focus on characters not Wolverine or Professor X.
  2. It has a much more faithful adapation of the "Dark Phoenix Saga" than X-Men: The Last Stand.
  3. Impressive fight scenes.
  4. It's touching to see Xavier and Lehnsherr finally reconcile their friendship after 40 years, in-universe, after X-Men: First Class.

Bad Qualities

  1. Quicksilver doesn't have that big a role.
  2. They may have killed-off Raven too soon in the movie.
  3. Killing-off Jean Grey was just stupid since X-Men: Days of Future Past makes it perfectly clear see will return.
