The New Mutants

The New Mutants ★½

This film was excruciatingly painful to finish because it’s just too monotonous and unimaginative; it tried to blend the teen flick narrative with some horror and fantasy tones that ended up like a half-assed dumpster fire of a movie I just watched. The plot is too predictable and the dialogue is such a mess that you’d think this film was rushed, but no, it was given plenty of time, over two years to be exact. The main leads were great, but there’s only so much that they can do to save the film. The X-Men film series deserved a better franchise ender than this forgettable mess.
