    I didn't think the movie was so horrible, like a dark phoenix, but the characters didn't have the essence of them. The Magik was a preppy, the mirage actress looked like she was dead .... Only Maise was saved there

    However...

    Rahne's history in Marvel comics has long been a deeply religious one. I find it interesting that the homophobic Presbyterian as she was portrayed in the referenced issue was shockingly outed in the movie and, given the hell she put 'Star and Ric through in X-Factor, I'd like to think that "present" Rictor would find the whole situation equally ironic.
    Ohhh ok ok lol

    I liked the cast in this movie. Wouldn’t mind them making the transition over to the MCU with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, and hopefully his key supporting cast like Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz.

    The only good ones were the ones playing Magik and Rahne. The rest did not do the characters justice and should not return IMO

    Seconded. Anya Taylor-Joy (Magik) and Maisie Williams (Rahne) nailed it!

    The biggest problem with this movie is clearly Josh Boone. No one should ever give him money to write or direct a film ever again. He literally said his intention was making a cross between The Breakfast Club and a 'prestige horror movie'. He also said that he likes movies like the Shining but wants to make 'prestige horror movies/mini-series' that are adaptations of Stephen King novels - seemingly unaware that there are like 86 adaptations of Stephen King novels, using the word 'prestige' in this context is pretentious beyond belief, and that the film he mentioned as one of his favourites is prior to this is a Stephen King adaptation... Also, he originally wanted New Mutants to be a trilogy... Say what you want about Fox but they clearly saw what Boone was producing and pulled the plug before they flushed more money down the toilet by letting this incompetent idiot make a movie. He's doing The Stand now so I guess his life long dream of finally seeing an adaptation of a Stephen King work on the small screen is now a reality.

    Doing The Stand and mucked it up to a degree that's utterly unreal.

    Boone's career is starting to look like M. Night Shyamalan's. One good movie (Sixth Sense, Fault in Our Stars) followed by a downward spiral into mediocrity and crap.

    Haven't seen much of Shyamalan, but agree that Signs was really good.

    Ah yes, where aliens burned by water invade the planet naked and can travel between planets but can't unlock a door.

    New Mutants is a masterpiece in comparison to anything by M Night

    Let's start with the fact that aliens burned by water are trying to invade a planet that 3/4 OF ITS SURFACE is covered by it. All you'd have to do to thwart that invasion is wait for it to RAIN.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...
