I don’t get the negativity towards this film. I found it very enjoyable, though I wished it was longer but it was really good for what it was.

What is wrong with the people criticizing this movie for not being “for” children or pre-teens when it’s a PG-13 movie with a known horror bend to it? If you didn’t like the movie, fair, but why do these people even get a vote? They’ve clearly displayed they don’t have the capacity for thoughts that should occupy any of our time.

The movie started of slow. You were confused at the beginning. The mutants had amazing powers. But failed to show off their potential. What could have been a great action scene ended up being a fight from someone’s imagination. I should have waited for redbox

Pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it. Magik was great. I thought it would be a wreck, based on all the issues in filming, but it was actually pretty fun. Solid B.

gave it 3 stars because it wasn't a bad movie per say but it should have been longer first of all second its not really for kids 12 and under i think, it wasn't that scary and and no post credits. i think it was still a decent movie but it fell like i could of watched this on Netflix or Disney

Don't know why this film stayed in limbo for so long before the world crisis, because upon release the build up to this movie stayed lukewarm and proved just that. Bland is giving this title just the right credit.

Slow to develop. Not a film I would recommend. The story didn't develop well and I was still scratching my head at the end.

If you know nothing about the story, then this not your movie. The horror elements are really good. If you have not read comics it will be hard for you to understand, those who have read comics know this better than the causal movie goer

I thought it was pretty good but fails to act as a good ending to the Fox X-Men franchise. Had it come out 3 years ago it would be much better!! It had a lot of potential but it’s still worth a watch and if you’re eager to get back out to the theaters then it’s a good movie to do it with.

Great cast, provocative CGI. But thematic elements fall almost outside the Marvel / Fox scope. Not good enough to be memorable, yet I would encourage anyone to see it. Not for children. Needless sexuality.

This is not your traditional X-Man/mutant movie. It's more of a horror film revolving around kids with mutant powers. There are no big setpiece battles in it, except for the one at the end, and the buildup is slow, but to me it was worth it. No, this one is more of a psychological horror film, taking its time with the Big Reveal, but it's definitely worth your time to go see it.

I gave it 4 stars because it had gross homosexuality in it and because of that it got 4 instead of 5 stars.

After a seemingly slow start… this film went all over the place plotwise for the second half of its time. I was left disappointed and confused for sure.

well I glad I finally saw it, wasn't terrible and wasn't really awful at all. loved the story line but left open some loopholes. kids have great chemistry together I thought. I hope that it's a modest success. check it out .

Firs movie at a theater since the pandemic began! Happy for that... While it is not a blockbuster film like the ones in the MCU, i really enjoyed the introduction of these characters, especially Illyana who is an awesome marvel character :D Hopefully we will have a sequel with more action and better character development!

Main protagonists acted very abc Family so they could have gone with someone more convincing. But other than that the cast was amazing and the story introduced the characters very well. Can’t wait to see them all develop in future marvel films

The New Mutants didn’t deserve to be locked away for years. It’s not some unwatchable mess but rather a perfectly fine, entertaining, if at times formulaic small-scale genre movie.

This film is no masterpiece, but the franchise has mutated, just a little.
