The finale of Dark Phoenix was directed by an unexpected person, Simon Kinberg, long time screenwriter and producer and this is his first time to direct an X-Men film. The rest of the 6 X-Men films were directed by Bryan Singer. However, this is the first time I saw a disappointing finale, even though this year I saw Avengers: Endgame as an epic finale.
The performances were the best aspects in the movie, especially Sophie Turner. It’s really difficult to be this Phoenix character Jean Grey but this is not the first time that Jean Grey had lost control of her powers, we got X-Men: The Last Stand with Jean Grey played of Famke Janssen. I really don’t want to compare Turner with Janssen because they’re both excellent. The tons of other casts James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Tye Sheridan,… were great as well. I was disappointed with Mystique’s skin changing and I found out she hated her original skin. However, how the characters say or do things didn’t suit the scenes so much like they’re just tired of their roles since 2011. But then, there’s also Jessica Chastain which really made a coincidence to me if I thought about James McAvoy in IT: Chapter 2 (Bill and Beverly). LOL! Anyway, I didn’t feel that she should be in this movie, not even the demons somewhere. At first, I though Jean Grey was the main antagonist or just an antagonist like in X-Men: The Last Stand, but the was a protagonist. I didn’t even know her name in the movie because her role was just…forgettable! And there’s a scene where Nightcrawler got mad at the demons, I think he should say something like: “I’m gonna kill you, MotherFucker!”
The plot was…not cool and kinda a bit convoluted or messed up because if you see the X-Men timeline, it’s messed up as well and really confusing, because of X-Men: Days of Future Past is the finale of the future and then X-Men: Apocalypse led us to the past when James McAvoy was gonna shave his head to look like Patrick Stewart or Michael Fassbender was gonna look like Ian McKellen.
The script was also terrible, I didn’t even know who wrote it like how characters say didn’t match the story much but at least it’s not as bad as Fantf4stic which was almost the worst screenplay I had ever seen. In fact, Simon Kinberg directed this movie based on the Dark Phoenix Saga from the Marvel Comics and it turned out to be not the same.
The soundtrack was scored by Hans Zimmer. It’s hard to say but he did good but the big problem was his cores did not suit the scenes added to the movie. It wasn’t that epic and I found it a waste of time to purchase it or download it on my MP3 Player and the 20th Century Fox Title was ….bland like other parts of the movie, I would rather hear the 20th Century Fox Title from X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse.
The biggest problem though was the title. That’s right, “Dark Phoenix”. Is this “Dark” Phoenix? No! This is not dark or deserved to be R-Rated (despite the blood), there’s Jessica Chastain and her demons to ruin the title. Jean Grey is a good guy and used her powers for good from the train sequence.
Overall, this IS the finale of X-Men that we should say good bye to these characters (poor Tye Sheridan and Sophie Turner, just 2 movies) and it turned out to be a big failure. Yes, this movie is a disappointing finale but there’s also a new movie called “The New Mutants” and I bet it would be rated R like Logan, Deadpool 1 and 2 just because I saw the trailer which looked like a horror movie (it reminded me of Brightburn).
