The New Mutants (2020)



Critic Consensus: Rendering a list of potentially explosive ingredients mostly inert, The New Mutants is a franchise spinoff that's less than the sum of its super-powered parts.

Movie Info

Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), Illyana Rasputin (Anya Taylor-Joy), Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton) and Roberto da Costa (Henry Zaga) are four young mutants being held in an isolated hospital for psychiatric monitoring. Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga), believing the teenagers are a danger both to themselves and to society as a whole, keeps a close eye on them as she struggles to teach them how to rein in their mutant abilities. When newcomer Danielle "Dani" Moonstar (Blu Hunt) joins the other patients in the facility, strange occurrences begin to take place. The hospital's patients are plagued by hallucinations and flashbacks, and their new mutant abilities--and their friendships--will be tested as they battle to try to make it out alive.

You know what? It's nowhere near the disaster you'd probably imagine.

Even a mangled bit of Whedonese about a toad struck by lightning could benefit a superhero story this starved for character.

The concept behind The New Mutants is a solid, intriguing one that could've reinvigorated the familiar origin superhero story. Instead, Boone opts for genericism, ending the X-Men franchise with an angsty-teen whimper.

The New Mutants tramples over its own comic book credentials in order to chase after a concept already more convincingly dealt with by The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

November 11, 2020 | Rating: 2/5

An idiotic, nonsensical, and weirdly cheap attempt to take the stories in a new direction.

October 22, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Fox's last X-Men movie is an unholy mess... Out of the wreckage, a cult classic has been born.
