Bland and pointless beyond belief, The New Mutants is two-thirds backstory monologues and one-third CGI-on-CGI fisticuffs. It wants to be so many things and ends up being absolutely nothing. This movie desperately needed whatever they edited out. Only good part about the movie is Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik. If anything comes out of this movie, I hope that it's Marvel putting Anya as Magik into the MCU somehow. A thing that really distracted me was the actors weird accents. You have a group of really good actors here but the bad accents made them just seem mediocre.

That was everything I could have possibly asked for. Beautiful. I loved this, no doubt the best one so far. This honestly seems like a perfect conclusion, so I’m not sure how eager I am to watch Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix, but I’m very much looking forward to Logan.
I've been at the mercy of men just... "Following orders"... NEVER AGAIN!"
Now that's something often absent in superhero movie.
Two of the greatest, yet underrated actors. James and Michael were literally perfect casting. I could watch these two act together forever. In ensemble films, chemistry between the cast is absolutely essential. The chemistry between the characters here is extraordinary and even better than it was with the casts of the original films.
That coin toss to Shaw's head…
