    The Darkest Minds

    ★½

    How is it possible that I've seen Michael Bay movies that are more subtle than what this film tried to accomplish?

    This is easily the most generic of the wave of dystopian young adult dramas based on books to the point where it even makes the ham-fisted Divergent franchise look like Citizen Kane in comparison.
