X-Men 3: The Last Stand

The problem with this movie is typical for Hollywood: Can’t decide which movie to make? Make them both and fail. The Last Stand is both the Dark Phoenix saga—Jean Grey’s powers are out of control and she threatens to destroy everything—and one wherein the government has found a way to permanently make mutants human. Poor writing for both storylines and a ridiculous body count makes what had been a sustained, serious comic book movie franchise a failure.
