Jackman is the best, and every scene with Quicksilver is gold. McAvoy and Fassbender are perfect as the younger versions of their characters. McAvoy is honestly so underrated, and he has some scenes here that really stand out. I’m very curious who will be cast in these roles once the MCU eventually brings in the X-Men.
Overall, this is an enjoyable movie, one of the franchise’s best in fact, but I can’t help but feel that it’s not much more than a two hour retcon of the series. It has plenty of great moments, but I remembered it being better. Then again, that was six years ago. Still a fun time.
I didn’t plan on going through all the X-Men films again (I was originally just gonna rewatch the three Wolverine films), but I might do that now. I never got around to watching Dark Phoenix, anyway.
