    So, after a long wait, we finally get to see what The New Mutants is all about. 

    Heavily delayed by Coronavirus/Lockdown, I suppose this could be classed as the second major release after the epic that is Tenet. 

    Compared to other X-Men/Mutant films, the film has a dark tone running from beginning to end. While other films in the franchise have huge sets, this film is set in one location, with only a handful of actors and as such, has a claustrophobic feel to it. This goes to improve character development and in turn, the overall story. 

    For those fans of 80’s classics and like me of a certain age, there is a “Breakfast Club” quality about the story, with the audience getting to understand the challenges and demons each character ultimately has to face and overcome. 

    For die hard X-Men fans, there are hints and references to the larger universe, however we do not get any sense of timeline or when this film fits, although from a personal opinion, the X-Men timeline has been played about with a tad too much! 

    For a relatively short film, I found The New Mutants to be an excellent, darker edition to the whole franchise, while it will not be everyone’s cup of tea, I thoroughly enjoyed it, regardless of what the reviewers on imdb say. 

    A solid 8/10 

    As always, let me know what you think. 

    Hugs

      I’m so glad you likes this one.  It was one of my favorites this year.  I love everything Anya Taylor Joy does.  I like the comparison you made to The Breakfast Club.

      Thanks, I’ll have to keep an eye out for this. I was crazy for the comic books back in the day.

      My wife and I went to see this film; it was Bettylou’s first date.  It was interesting, but to me, the entire film felt like it was the background/ introduction for the REAL movie.  I also found it too dark for my personal taste – but that is just me  I’m waiting to see how the characters work together in the sequel before passing final judgement.
