Dark Phoenix

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Steve’s Take

Dark Phoenix is borderline entertaining. It has tons of flaws and is even dull at points. It is certainly not the best way to end things. Whenever I discuss this series with anyone, there is always this huge sense of disappointment and there seemed to be a lot of that with Dark Phoenix.

Steve’s Wrap

That’s all for this week. I’m not going to recommend that you see Dark Phoenix because it isn’t all that good. If you’ve got nothing else to do then you should go for it. Next week we have a much larger selection – Yesterday, Anna, Child’s Play, and Shaft hit the shelves. Later!
