X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX (12)
DISAPPOINTING 12th instalment in the Marvel Comics franchise. Nine years have passed since the events of X-Men: Apocalypse when Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) unlocked the telekinetic powers of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). The X-Men are called into action to rescue the stricken crew of Space Shuttle Endeavour. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) leads the mission, during which Jean absorbs dangerous levels of energy. The experience unleashes years of pent-up rage and frustration which a shape-shifting alien (Jessica Chastain) exploits to rebuild her species’ fallen empire.
