While Kinberg obviously wants [to give] Jean [a Logan-esque end], the film yearns for bow-tied binary carnage. There's enough to like, but hardly enough to leave fulfilled.

The human element is present, and that makes the plot bearable. [Full review in Spanish]

DARK PHOENIX probably won't be anybody's favorite X movie, but for those who are jonesing for anything in this universe, it covers all of its bases well enough.

A darker tone & grounded focus amplify great moments. While a longer runtime & better villain would have elevated it further, Dark Phoenix honors the X-Franchise & neatly closes the First Class arc.

DARK PHOENIX is going to be one of the more divisive blockbusters this summer. It has many problems but finds success by diving deeper into the intimate relationships of its characters.

Under the able debut direction of writer/producer Simon Kinberg, this pacey instalment brings a close to 20 years of X-Men films and the birth of a fresh, new franchise once 20th Century Fox has completed its merger with Disney.

Dark Phoenix is certainly one of the weaker films of the X-Men franchise, but Michael Fassbender's performance as Magneto elevates every scene.

"Dark Phoenix" is a mixed bag overall but not without surprising moments of heft and impact.

The perfect end to this saga. [Full Review in Spanish]

X-Men Dark Phoenix will not conquer comic book fans, nor does it connect on the human side like Logan, but ... it's entertaining. [Full Review in Spanish]

Far from saving the world, Dark Phoenix often just satisfies itself with issues of guilt, responsibility, and the nagging feeling that things done with the best of intentions can still result in the worst of consequences for all involved.

Dark Phoenix is full of the grade-A action we've come to demand from these films. But what really sets it off is the dramatic focus on Jean's journey. This keeps things emotionally grounded, however fantastical the FX sequences get. It's quite a feat.

..while it may not rank with the very best in the series neither is it just going through the motions..

Overall I liked it and it certainly isn't the worst X-Men film.

A fitting end to the franchise, paying tribute to the best-loved entries and correcting previous mishaps.

While there are issues, Dark Phoenix provides a more than decent farewell to a series that was always a mixed bag.

Kinberg took a famous narrative about how women can't control their own power, and made it into a story about how they can.

One day, when superhero films are as rare as westerns, we will appreciate the brilliant talent applied to the best of them. X-Men: Dark Phoenix moves with a classic's smooth conviction from its very first scenes.
