Maybe its just the longing for new material in me, but I really enjoyed The New Mutants. The issues this film had from the delays, reshoots, and director fighting with the studio can been seen on the screen. This movie doesn’t seem to have a true identity, is it a superhero movie, horror flick, or drama? I couldn’t decide.
The cast is by far the silver lining of this movie. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Anya Taylro-Joy (The Queens Gambit) steel each scene they are in. I wish we would have gotten more from Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) but it felt like his character was never fully developed. At least he did the best with what he was given.
If you are looking for something a bit different from the Super Hero world, give The New Mutants a shoot.
