Storyline

After a near-death experience during a strange tornado, Danielle Moonstar awakens in an abandoned research facility run by the mysterious Dr Cecilia Reyes. There, Dr Reyes introduces Dani to four other equally uncommon teenagers: Illyana Rasputin, Rahne Sinclair, Sam Guthrie, and Roberto da Costa, who wants to keep them safe and sound until they learn how to be in full control of their extraordinary abilities. However, even though the exceptional team of traumatised inmates believes that they're being treated and cared for, before long, they all start to experience horrifying hallucinations. But, this institution was supposed to be a safe place. Are they patients or prisoners? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Illyana carries a dragon toy. This is a homage to Lockheed, a pet dragon owned by the X-Men (in the comics he was owned by Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat, in this film he is owned by Magik). See more »

Goofs

Not too far into the movie Magik 'Illyana' shows Mirage 'Dani' around the school and grounds, there's a fountain in front of the main entrance where Magik has stashed some spray paint, she proceeds to spray a bit of graffiti onto the base of the fountain. Throughout the movie whenever you get a shot from the same perspective, the graffiti has disappeared and then it returns, then it's gone again. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Danielle Moonstar: There's a Native American proverb that says: Inside every person there are two bears, forever locked in combat for your soul. One bear is all things good: compassion, love, trust. The other is all things evil: fear, shame and self-destruction.

Wow, that was a bad movie
23 April 2021 | by rossarntsonSee all my reviews

It baffles me, when a studio can spend $67 million on something like this. Somebody with authority ok'd this for release. Yes, I realize they did a lot of reshoots, but did they make it better or worse? Because it couldn't have been much worse. Such a waste of good casting.
