One word: Badass!!💯 If you love the Xmen franchise and Gene’s character you are going to loooove Gene’s backstory!!
The backstory on her life really sets the pace for the entire mutant saga. And I thought Logan was good??!! How can such a destructive, cataclysmic dark gift be wrapped in such a beautiful package?? The actress Sophia Turner played the mutant Gene Grey and she killt it!! aside from the fact that she was drop dead gorgeous and mesmerized you with those piercing brown eyes. I’m trying not to give too many spoilers way lol. So when you go see it come back and comment!! I just may go see this one again!!
😍😍🔥🔥ok!! on to my review..
If you’ve been following me for awhile you know that I am a storyline person. It doesn’t matter to me who the actors are…the storyline is what gets me and this one did not disappoint!! So it starts with the 8yr old Gene and how she came to be a part of Charles’s mutant family. From the very beginning Charles knew she was the most powerful of them all but he also knew her heart and he sometimes had to be the bad guy in order to keep her safe and from becoming her own worst enemy. How many of us Bipolar people have a really strong gift that’s also our biggest weakness?? For Gene it was: her mind. (Same here) What she saw as the bad part of herself, or the darkness inside her that she had to be rid of, was the one thing she needed to save the mutant race!!
Then after _?_ gets killed Magneto comes on the scene and all hell breaks loose!! Sorry I gotta leave it there. I don’t wanna ruin it.
But, its so worth it!!
