Sir, please. It's all well set and explained even when not immediately. Magneto does not present an immediate threat since he has protected her from those who wanted to "control" her. That makes perfect sense.

Sure, you'd have wanted to give Colossus a meaningful role and that's fine and right. But you cannot blame this one movie for not taking your choice and yet ignore all the previous movies did the same.

We had seen plenty of the mutant angle but this "cure" one was a different one. Specially if someone would want to get rid of one of their heirs.

It felt more like character assassination. I really wish her story was the focus instead of the background.
One thing you have to bear in mind is that logic is the one thing Phoenix will NOT have into account. As I, and the actual movie, actually explained, is that the character is pure instinct unbounded.

I really hope for a Wolverine non-focused X-men franchise one day. And it really needs a full reboot bc as it will continue to tie-in to the previous franchise and miss the opportunity to tap into the more exotic aspects of the X-men universe like space travel, the savage land, etc. Not the fault of this movie per se but just the franchise as a whole.
As I said, you gotta make choices in this kind of movie.

Destroying everything is not a master plan, but the final part of it. And the way it is performed could vary.
