Atom User Reviews for The New Mutants
Could’ve been better
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.
Stupid movie don’t waste time or money
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.
Absolutely loved it! I'd watch it again and again!
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
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
This movie was trash!!!! I feel like I should of been paid to wait it! It is like a movie you watch b4 u go to die.
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
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.
It wasn’t that bad Wasn’t great either
should of been better for the time it took
Terrible. Slow. Bad story. Would not recommend. Inappropriate for any kids younger than teens. Disappointing
would have liked more content, very short!
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.
Was overall a good movie
Not the worst X-Men movie, but could've been stronger
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.
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.
better than Dark Phoenix though not as scary as the trailers made it seem
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.
I’m really disappointed in this film after having waited so long with studio push backs and COVID imprisonment. I liked the idea of the horror genre over the standard super hero one however this film left a lot to be desired. There were some good castings yet the acting was flat and uninspired. There was a failed attempt to add depth to characters but the predictable teen lesbian relationship was gonna help. I had stayed through the credits hoping for glimpse of Dr. Nathaniel Essex yet there was any. This movie doesn’t even warrant a sequel to physically introduce him.
great movie but y does it seem like now every movie has to have a lesbian or a gay guy
The movie was awesome
Great New Fresh Take on the XMen and Mutant movies.
I was legitimately surprised. Even though this was the first cut of the movie, I really enjoyed it.
Interesting. not best.
The movie was OKAY, it definitely could have been better though :/
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
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 .
Wait for it on Disney+
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!
It was not the movie I was expecting to see. Once I was able to set those preconceived notions aside. I was able to enjoy it.
Original story with obvious ties to the same old Marvel I love
Story was dragged out, could’ve been more action
Started off pretty dry but ended the movie on a high note while introducing some dope new mutants!
Smuttie and not worth seeing in the theater.
Dumb spinoff from X-men
Almost good but also a little bit of a stretch. Magik and Lockheed steal the show.
Ending really sucked!
A coming of age movie and how no one ever fits in, except they have powers. Preferred Anyas character with the little dragon.
I like it. Good story. Would love to see more marvel horror?? See the mutants really use there powers to fight demons.
it surprised me. good 👍 Umbrella academy vibes
This powers cool, the plot budget
The New Mutants’ greatest failing is that, even as a spinoff, its drama is puny and its spectacle nonexistent.
Generic and, at its best, straining to be heartfelt.
