Trivia

The characters of Buff and Refrax were created especially for the movie. Characters such as Chamber and Penance were left out because the SFX needed to portray them would have raised the budget too high. See more »

Goofs

While Jubilee is supposedly playing a video game, in fact the screen shows the between-games demo and the legend "Insert Coin." See more »

I'm betting it looked better on paper...I hope...
16 April 1999 | by (Xavier Institute for Higher Learning) – See all my reviews

I'm a Generation X fan, especially the early Scott Lobdell run on the comic book. So it was with much enthusiasm that I flumped down in my recliner, remote and comic book in hand (yep, I'm a comic geek), and prepared to witness the anticipated event.

What I ended up watching, however, was a really disappointing two hours of mutant mayhem.

First of all, they were trying to do a Gen X movie without ANY connection to the X-Men, other than the basic 'mutant menace' thing, and the fact that they were using Xavier's school. Second, the actors they got to play the kids looked and acted nothing like the comic version I know and love. I mean, Jubilee is Asian, but tell that to Heather McComb, who had none of the firecracker's attitude. Mondo was nothing like the Samoan slacker in the comics, and instead was some punk kid I wanted to slap. Husk and Synch were noticeably absent, and in their places were Refrax and Buff (the latter of which was the only interesting character in the movie). Skin turned out similar to his comic roots, but all in all I had to constantly remind myself that the characters speaking were supposed to be the same ones from the book. That's a bad sign.

What's Matt Frewer doing in this movie? He's supposed to be a comic-relief villain, but name me one villain in a comic-based movie over the last decade who WASN'T!

Now I hear they're going to make another GenX TV movie (or possible TV series). They say they're going to have better casting. I hope they have better writers and producers as well.
