  • X-Men:Dark Phoenix
  • Cast:James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner
  • Director:Simon Kinberg
  • Rating:3/5

After many successful X-Men films scripts, Simon Kinberg has once again put behind the megaphone, and tried to bring the best of best with X-Men Dark Phoenix. In true X-Men style, the boy has delivered true effects with huge fireballs and totally engrossing whirlwinds.

It’s a newly created space within the same X-Men universe where Charles Xavier or Professor X (James McAvoy) is trying to not fight the US government at the cost of mutants being alienated. Dark Phoenix’s problems begin to be right here because of the Patrick Stewart’s towering presence is hard to forget in such situation. But what works exactly in this film’s favour is its director understands of the milieu. Don’t be surprised if you feel like not missing some characters in the X-Men universe.

Just like Batman films, it simply replaces the characters and gives them slightly tweaked trajectories. At once, you will see Jean Grey as a horrified kid hunting for love and family, but it was a story that the fans always deserved to know in full. The director has managed to serve with delicate twists and pure humility.

Sophie Turner gives a sneak peek into her mind and her ever raging anger, but she is seen to be more human, like she cares about the responsibilities that come with superpowers and wouldn’t want to lose people close to her without giving them a chance. Things that mutants normally don’t do, or do them? In any case, it’s a good shift to watch.

It is evident that she is not the real reason why Dark Phoenix works. It’s the special effects that give Turner a chance to come out of her Game of Thrones mode and display a variety of emotions in this movie. McAvoy struggles while trying to fill into Stewart’s large shoes. His arc is mostly monotonous and not justifiable for his kind of talent. The same is true for Raven and Erik .This is just a new beginning.

This movie also suffers from the issues of most origin films like how deep one should go inside a character’s history to justify them. Dark Phoenix fails miserably on this front as there are hardly any impressive moments from Grey’s past life that we couldn’t have predicted.

The storyline has a drab with exhilarating action scenes and fluid transitions. It holds the audience’s attention despite repetitive sequences and very over the top shape shifting aliens. On second thoughts, this might not be the best VFX you have seen in a while but it blends perfectly well with the tonality of Dark Phoenix making it a blockbuster. There is a lot to cheer for in X-Men: Dark Phoenix but gives it a chance with an open mind to wisely groom the whole concept and then cheer it.
