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.

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.

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.
Dude even Famke Jensen didn't think her character was handled well.

Here's a quote:

"And I kept fighting it, too. I said 'Look, you set up the character like that in the beginning of the film. You have her kill Patrick Stewart's character. You have her kill her own fiancé in the film. And then where do you take it? You've got to follow it through. You can't just leave it dangling there.' But they did."

"I talked to the writers a lot about the ending of the film, wanting to make sure that it was clear that [Jean] wasn't taking a side between Magneto or the X-Men, and that it was a constant struggle in her head. But you know, if this had been a movie just about the Phoenix, we would have had a lot more time to explore all the different avenues that you can explore for that. But given the fact that there are so many characters in the X-Men, and we have to do justice to every single one of their storylines, we have to use broader strokes in that case, and you have to hope that it's clear."
It may have satisfied you but this film didn't exactly get rave reviews from fans or critics.
