Dark Phoenix Reviews
December 7, 2020
The music by Hans Zimmer is a huge improvement over the last several X-Men chapters.

The X-Men franchise limps to a conclusion with this lifeless entry that finds director Simon Kinberg in over his head.

The spectacle is entertaining, up to a point, but even the digital wizardry wears thin, and Dark Phoenix turns into a standard-brand miasma of explosions, collisions and swirling force fields.

What could've been a poignant, epic conclusion to a lengthy franchise ends up being an unmemorable spectacle that's a quick payday for those involved.

I'm fairly sure at some point I mumbled 'We get the point already!'

Close to non-existing action, it's incredible that at this point in the superhero genre, we still get floppy films like this one. [Full review in Spanish]

A dull snooze lacking spectacle, it does the unthinkable and makes 2006's much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand look marginally better in retrospect.

It's a dull superhero movie out of the bunch, a rushed product that never escapes the bland. [Full review in Spanish]

All in all, the franchise has petered out with a film that is neither its best nor worst entry.

It's too much story to tell in one chapter while also trying to wrap up two decades worth of material. The Phoenix storyline should have been built over the past few installments, rather than cramming it all here at the end.

One or two entertaining moments, but there's nothing new left for this reboot.

Overall, it's like X-Men knew it's a far third in terms of superhero franchises and just stopped trying with this movie.

While this time around the filmmakers are able to flesh the tale out more and give it the attention it deserves, they still don't quite give it its due.

Turner delivers a solid performance as a young woman coming to grips with an unknown force, and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender maintain the frenemy bond we've grown to love.

The action scenes are by far the best part. Some of them are genuinely exciting. But there aren't nearly enough. It's mostly just boring talk about destiny, punctuated by zero jokes.

But the dour, lifeless tone of the film is so pervasive that it undercuts all sense of joy.
