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.
Stupid movie don’t waste time or money
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.
Absolutely loved it! I'd watch it again and again!
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
Terrible. Slow. Bad story. Would not recommend. Inappropriate for any kids younger than teens. Disappointing
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.
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
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
should of been better for the time it took
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.
Movie was very slow to get to action. Expected more. No one really used their powers. Wasted money.
Was overall a good movie
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.
Not the worst X-Men movie, but could've been stronger
Weak story line with dismal acting. Don’t waste your time. Not the Marvel movie we’ve come to expect
would have liked more content, very short!
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.
Interesting. not best.
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.
The movie was OKAY, it definitely could have been better though :/
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 .
great movie but y does it seem like now every movie has to have a lesbian or a gay guy
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!
I was legitimately surprised. Even though this was the first cut of the movie, I really enjoyed it.
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
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!
Flat out terrible for the franchise!
Dumb spinoff from X-men
First hour wondered what the plot was..second was better but still not great. Fox just can't make very good Marvel movies that often.
Almost good but also a little bit of a stretch. Magik and Lockheed steal the show.
Original story with obvious ties to the same old Marvel I love
This powers cool, the plot budget
Maybe a Disney plus/Netflix would have been better.
Ending really sucked!
Smuttie and not worth seeing in the theater.
Too much of a disconnect with the actual story lines that exist
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.
