Dark Phoenix Movie Review
The next instalment in one of the most popular superhero franchises has just landed! But this time, it’s another one of its fictional characters that has the internet buzzing! Dark Phoenix is the story of one of the saga’s most iconic characters. Let’s investigate more about the movie and its reviews.
The movie hit the cinemas on the 5th June. Starring with Sophie Turner - we all must know her for her role as Sansa in The Game of Thrones series. And it is for this reason that a lot of people are looking forward to this movie. She plays Jean Grey who accidentally absorbs an unknown force from a solar burst. Her powers made her very powerful, yet unstable. She becomes uncontrollable and a threat to everyone.
This is a story of another superhero who battles with their powers and needs to make a choice between good and evil. Dark Phoenix has many positive reviews that might encourage producers to create another chapter in the series.
A fan mentioned: ‘’I've seen a lot of Negative feedback on this Movie& I strongly believe that it deserves the Best ranking. First, the Director, Writer & all the People behind this Movie, didn't say that this would be a Comic-like Saga & this is not a continuation nor connected to the X Men: The Last Stand (2006)’’.
Though this specific superhero franchise has been a bittersweet one, it was a monster of a hit movie back in 2000. In this movie, Simon Kinberg, the director, reintroduced some of the main characters back to help Jean control her powers. All the franchises’ main characters have returned in this addition to the legendary saga and this has brought much excitement to all the fans.
The gorgeous Sophie has done her character justice in this movie, even though some argue her portrayal was not convincing. On the downside, some have complained about dialogues in the movie tending to be cringy at times, while others noticed that the action sequences were a bit too overpowering. The ending might be a bit uncompromising and leaves you with many questions in the back of your mind. One fan posted: “Dark Phoenix is packed with emotions, nostalgia for the fans of the series, twists and turns, a convincing plot, and lots of exhilarating action”
All in all, the movie has received mixed to generally favourable reviews, but we believe you’d be the best judge.
