The X-Men are back. Jean is alive but has been consumed by her extreme powers and has turn into Dark Phoenix. Unable to control her powers, she is a danger to everyone including herself. At the same time the government releases news that they have found a cure for mutation. Mutants can now choose to loose their powers and become humans…which pretty much angers Magneto…who leads an army to rebel.
I love the X-Men. I’ve actually never read the comics but I’ve always loved the X-men cartoons…and I’m not talking about X-Men Evolution, where they’re all teenagers---I didn’t like that one. So anyway…I like the fact that they’ve added a few more X-Men like Beast, Angel, Colossus and Shadowcat. I mean especially Beast…isn’t he like one of the main X-Men…they should have added him sooner. And I still can’t believe they didn’t have Gambit…I would have love to see him.

Going into to the movie…I pretty much knew what was going to happen. I have only just watch it now…so my friends have already told me the main storylines after they watch it when it came out in the theatres. I was disappointed that they killed Cyclops soo early on…and like that. He is the 2nd in command. Surely he has to have a grander exit. Actually I’m also disappointed that Cyclops had not much a role in all the movies. Everything is focused on Wolverine.
Ok so here we get to see Jean become evil and all. I have to admit…I never really liked it when Jean becomes the Phoenix…and to write that into the movie…that’s a mammoth task…cause you need to explain a whole lot of stuff…like what brought about this change…and then showcase her great power…and that’s incredibly difficult. So the movie tried… I don’t know…everything seems awkward, unfinished …and can something that powerful die with a stab?? How does she die in the comics??…that’s what I’d want to know.
I’ll say it again…I’m glad they added more characters. We get to see Angel…even though he does nothing but fly around. Colossus…yes we do get to see him in action…fight and stuff. And then there’s Shadowcat…I think she’s pretty much the newbie with the most spotlight…and I like her…I’ve always found her a tad annoying in X-Men evolution…but I like her here. The thing is though… she should be with Colossus…cause I thought in the comics they were together…ok so maybe they wanted her to kinda come between Bobby and Rogue so that Rogue would get the cure an everything….than why did they cut the kiss part…cause the kiss would be more of a motive to get a cure rather than seeing them skate around right??? Because…Rogue can’t have any intimate contact or any human contact in fact. And Rogue….oh well we see very little of her…pity.
