The New Mutants

You witch! I’ll flay the flesh from your bones!

I think we all wanted and expected some more action and special effects from this film, but the few big budget scenes that appeared did not disappoint. The characters were all developed fairly well and the actors, especially the 3 young women, performed fantastically together. It was cool to see a young cast develop that much chemistry. Magik was portrayed in a way that will satisfy a lot of comic book fans, but the racism in the beginning was just unnecessary. I understand that it was part of developing both characters, but any form of bullying would have suited the narrative just fine.

I’m not usually a fan of Marvel movies, which is probably why I actually enjoyed this one. The direction and overall tone definitely helped separate this film from the rest of the X-men movies.
