X-Men is one of the longest-running franchises of superhero films. With over 12 films including the original and the spin-offs, the franchise has earned itself a crazy amount of moolah at the box-office and millions of fans around the world. The latest and the last installment of this series is the X-Men: Dark Phoenix that finally got released. Starring Sophie Turner (Yes, everyone’s beloved Sansa Stark) in the lead who plays Jean Grey – a mutant with telepathic and telekinetic powers.
The movie is receiving a lot of negative reviews for its unimpressive storyline, flat plots, and visuals. The movie has been in trouble right from the beginning with it being shot twice and delayed for a number of reasons. The movie had fans and critics from all over the world waiting for it to hit the theatres. And now that it is here, it has managed to impress the loyal fans, the critics and the neutral audience not so much. There is a small section who loved Sophie Turner in and as the Dark Phoenix, there are some who find the movie an average one-time watch and then there are those who find it disastrous. Wondering which side you’ll join after you watch the film? Well, until you figure that one out, here are some reviews that might help you decide whether you want to watch the film (or leave you all the more confused).

I’m dumbfounded at how bad the reviews are for #DarkPhoenix
I throughly enjoyed the movie! Is it perfect and one of the best films in the franchise… No, but it’s nowhere near the worst (Origins, Last Stand) and IMO it’s better than Apocalypse.
Go see it & give it a chance

The X-Men franchise ended with Days of Future Past. I don't know what I just watched. #DarkPhoenix

I saw #DarkPhoenix last night. It wasn’t as good as I expected. It was okay. I’m hoping the next X-Men revival, whenever that is, will be a lot different.

#DarkPhoenix was fine. Definitely not the note I would have liked to see the franchise leave on. A little bleak and rushed, but not was bad as the MCU fanboys have been saying. The score is on point and it has some of the coolest action sequences so far.

Okay, #DarkPhoenix was a huge let down. This is the 2nd attempt at this story with little success.
However, I was still engaged. If I was a critic it would get 6.5/10. Turner was a miscast.
I can still recommend you check it out for Magneto, Nightcrawler and the score.

Movie review: "The narrative of #DarkPhoenix feels rushed, but Sophie Turner does enough quality work for one to lament how little time she was given as Jean Grey." #XMen #Film #FilmTwitter #Movie #Reviewhttps://t.co/I2MDNnKi50

I watched #DarkPhoenix and i loved! For me it's a great movie and cried when the crrdits started rolling. So if you want to watched go and watched, don't listen to critics, go there and make your own opinion. I'm glad i did it. #XMen

Agreed it was not as bad as the reviews says it to be, but story wise, their attempt at adapting the #DarkPhoenix Saga was a dissapointment to me.
