Yes, Cyke was killed. Yes, Jean was wasted, and yes Rogue was mistreated. But, the major problem lies with Ratners direction. Everything is about cheesy one liners and careless action. When an emotional scene arrives, he just brushes it over his shoulder.

I feel like Vaughn could have taken the SAME script and given us a brilliant movie worth watching
Wow, you couldnt have summed up my feelings more perfectly, not long after its release, I could at least sit through it, now, I cant even get 10 mins in. And Ratner is just as much to blame as anyone else IMO.

2015 movie ratings out of 10:

1)Mad Max: Fury Road-9(2)Kingsman: The Secret Service-9(3)Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation-9(4)The Martian-8.5(5)Ex Machina-8.5(6)Jurassic World-8.5(7)Ant Man-8.5(8)Avengers: Age Of Ultron-8(9)Spectre-8(10)John Wick-8(11)It Follows-8(12)Terminator: Genisys-6.5(13)Chappie-6
