A story about this — 5 years ago
Could have been much better. The whole Phoenix story was done far more interestingly in the cartoon series I remember from childhood, and the concept of the ‘cure’ is shunted to one side too often. IMDb has some interesting comments on the different stages of scriptwriting, which does sort of explain the lack of focus. Some interesting ideas, some interesting new characters, some interesting loose threads left.
Bring on Wolverine!
