After Many Tries and Reshoots...It Fails.
7 September 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

Who said this is Horror ???! After the repetitive promises and tries to release this...thing, it fails. A redundant teenage issues story in a sci-fi mold about young mutants discovering their abilities and (AGAIN) trying escape some sort of a facility. This time the difference is...they are only five of them! wow, yep this is mainly the plot.

Clearly we are living the fast money grabbing age and with the epidemic backlash - either socially or financially - big companies don't care for their dedicated fans or even the general audience as they blindly want to make more money.

The new mutants and what painfully follows (origin single hero stories, pointless sequels and human vs animated classic reboots) are no exclusion...With a weak plot of a stereotypical teens with issues concept, a very poor atmosphere throughout the whole movie, some plot holes here and there, painfully incoherent accent and of course a predictable story telling!

For audience like myself who I know they deserve better...Save your money for something worth and free-stream what you like till the big companies stop being greedy.
