X-Men: Dark Phoenix

The most iconic villain of the X-Men series comes to life again, so the fans of the saga surely have high expectations. Bad news is that the film probably won't meet all those expectations, and more bad news is that with this movie we say goodbye to the well-known characters.
This is the end of an era. Sadly, this Phoenix doesn't soar as high as the final act of a beloved franchise should. The story is familiar to the comic book readers: Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) realizes that her abilities make her the most powerful mutant ever. The troubled heroine turns to the dark side, presenting a serious dilemma to her old friends and camarades: can they destroy their former ally? Do they have the means to overcome Jean, or are they standing helplessly in the shade of her threatening presence? It may sound a promising plot, but unfortunately on the screen it's not as convincing as it should be, the actors are struggling with underwritten roles and a messy narrative. Of course to the X-Men fans it is a must-see piece as practically it is an epic farewell: Disney acquired the majority of 21st Century Fox's projects and they will reboot the franchise in the future with completely new characters.
