The movie is so eager to get itself over with that its title anti-heroine even seems an afterthought.

Despite mostly sparky cast-work, the Phoenix never quite rises as hoped in Kinberg's affectionate but often perfunctory X-Men send-off.

It's not nearly as good as 'Logan' or 'X2', but it's a whole lot better than the eyeball-poking affliction that was 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.

The point of a phoenix, dark or otherwise, is that it rises from the flames. But these are the flames in which this franchise has finally gone down.

After the heights of Logan, this Phoenix really gives off the feeling of a franchise that has truly crashed and burned.
