Michael Fassbender’s Magneto out of his rural compound Dark Phoenix

The major issue is there are two storylines trying to merge into one but they don’t quite sit in harmony. On the one hand, we have Charles and his X-Men – who entice Michael Fassbender’s Magneto out of his rural compound and back into society – divided whether to save Jean from herself. On the other are a small group of shape-shifting aliens that want to use Jean’s new power to create a new world for themselves. However, there is absolutely no substance or creativity on this side of the story. Nothing but a brief outline of their purpose is forthcoming, making it a redundant side piece to an already dwindling plot.
