The Myth, The Legend, The New Mutants
27 August 2020 | by StaneSKTSee all my reviews

Well, they finally released this movie...3 years later. Given that, the story originally had to be told in 3 separate films, I can say, that it turned out to be kind of a boring mish-mash.

For sure the dark tone we have seen in all the promotional materials is certainly noticeable, but I can't say, that there are so many scary or intensity moments. I guess it also depends on how old you are. The Demon Bear got cool design and that's it.

The cast brings nothing special to the table, except Anya Taylor-Joy's Magik character, which stands out in front of the others.

There are some great scenes, but in the end the movie is kinda forgettable. This movie was supposed to come out 3 years ago, a time in which many movies came out and people slowly lost interest.

If you are a comicbook fan, watch it and support the work of the people who worked on it, they deserve it. It's not some big spectacle movie, but it has it's moments.

Just watch it without high expectations.
