Spoilers possible in discussion
Jean Grey, one of the X-men, nearly dies in an accident up in space. She mysteriously survives.
- Typical action movie. It’s half about how much stuff can be destroyed.
- More than half the movie has this poor woman running around saying “I don’t know what’s going on.”
- There are definitely some cool moments. I will include those later.
- I enjoyed how the alliances shifted throughout the movie.
- Charles seems to go through some development.
- The script was subpar. Quite a few lines could be finished based on going with the most cliched response.
Was it entertaining? Yes.
Would I go out and rush to see it again? Probably not.
Am I glad I saw it? Sure.
Would I buy the dvd/Blu-ray? No.
