Is that movie any good

I enjoyed it, even more than I've enjoyed any non-Deadpool X-Men movie since X2.

However, it was a weak attempt.

1. I don't think the lead (Dani) had the gravitas to hold the role. They hired this actress from her having only one role on her resume. I think that was a big mistake.

Not that the writing was great...

2. The Demon Bear story was nowhere near as impressive as the Saga we had in the books. It wasn't an actual demon or that big of a threat in the end.
3. The guys (Sam and Berto) get almost no screen time.
4. They turned Cecilia Reyes into a villain (and lackey of the still absent Sinister).
5. Yeah, more Sinister hints that go nowhere. I really wish they had made him the villain doctor of the movie.

Illyana was awesome and in total b**** mode for a good portion of the movie. Arguably overboard, but I really loved it.

Rahne was actually pretty good, because she's a lot more emotionally strong than she is in the books. However, this goes back to my Dani complaint, who is not even close to the strong leader she is/was in the books. Rahne sort of mentors Dani, rather than the opposite like in the books.
