"Everyone knows the third movie is always the worst" -- Jean

  • still too much focus on Jennifer Lawrence/Mystique
  • some great soundtrack choices
  • Quicksilver scene maybe just a tiny bit too long. Tradition of defying the rules of physics continues (I hope someone does the math on how fast he was probably moving)
  • nice 80s wardrobe lol
  • not particularly faithful to the source material
  • plot is all over the place, a lot of WTF moments here and there. OMG that stupid arrow D:
  • lots of faults, but you'll probably enjoy it anyway if you're an X-men fan just for all the random easter eggs you spot ("Hey, it's random third-string comic book character in a completely different role!")
  • post-credits scene? YES
  • I'm kind of hoping they go for Dark Phoenix Saga next (Aliens!) but the PCS tells us they have more sinister designs in mind...
  • Will Mama like it? Probably not.
  • I'd rate it worse than DoFP, probably around the same or slightly worse than First Class
