The New Mutants
Directed by Josh Boone. With Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga. Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
The much maligned, much delayed, and the unfortunate finale to the Fox / Marvel comic book series of mutant movies has finally been released. I agree with many that this is not a knock out of the park as the final swan song for the x-men franchise, but it was never intended to be such a thing. If you’re big into the history of the x-men and grew up as a child of the 80’s, then New Mutants is going to hit much differently than if you’re just a layman going to the movies, so take this with the knowledge that I cut my comic book teeth on the New Mutants comic books series when it was launch. I really enjoyed every aspect of the film and while I have things to complain about, this is going to be one of those movies that I buy in physical form.
