Reviews & comments

So I’m guessing this film was reshot and re-edited to no longer be a horror, which really sucks cause the horror elements are easily the best parts of it. With much of that removed however, and a new tone of the typical comic-book movie flavour established, the whole film feels utterly disjointed. There’s clearly a very interesting direction the film was...

Like 2016’s Apocalypse and 2019’s Dark Phoenix, this suffers from choppy editing, predictable storytelling and a climax reliant on decidedly ropey CGI. At least here they did away with having one-dimensional bad guy altogether.

In a world where normal seems very abnormal indeed, to experience something middling feels surprisingly refreshing.

The New Mutants has not been dissimilar to its teen protagonists, an oddball locked away from the world by some big, powerful entity. And as it turns out, like them, it didn't deserve such ill-treatment.

Despite a game cast, The New Mutants' horror elements aren't very scary and as a superhero movie it fails to truly excite. A disappointing finale to Fox's X-Men franchise.

The movie that's made its way to theaters is mildly engaging but mostly inert, a wan sizzle reel for an idea rather than the idea made manifest.

Re-shot, re-cut and somehow rescued from total obscurity, Boone's movie isn't half bad. Alas, it's not half good either.

Boone's film does demonstrate that there are different ways to approach these franchises outside of the binary of lighthearted/fun and dark/gritty movies that permeate the superhero genre.

A popular $6 billion franchise is saying goodbye (well, handing the reins over to Disney) with a wimpy young-adult horror flick.
