I like that they focus on Dani\Mirage for the beginning of the movie. The mystery surrounding her powers is a good start for the film. I thought Rahne\Wolfsbane and her were going to be the 2 main focal points of the film.
Then they make Ilyana\Magik important and get in on Sam\Cannonball along with Roberto\Sunspot. In the end, I think they made a poor choice in making this a team story as the mystery and romance between Dani and Rahne was good enough.
Anna Taylor Joy as Ilyana\Magik really does steal the scenes she is in as the bad girl of the team. Having her be an enemy turned ally would've been a good turn for the film. I love the way they include the Dragon Lockheed in this movie as he is a good sidekick to crazy of Ilyana.
In the end all the talk of X-Men is fun but knowing the future of the franchise along with the troubles this film had to get to the big screen really throw a damper on the hardcore fan getting too invested in the film as a standalone.
Give it alook.
