As the film fades from memory, The New Mutants will be remembered as not much more than a footnote for a franchise that flew atop of the cinematic world for a brief time.
#Glass “…The film is a decent companion to Split. Neither of the latter movies really have the power of Unbreakable, which is still the director’s masterwork. As it is, there’ve been two inferior sequels, but the trilogy still works if one can accept this as Night’s vision and not ours…”
Overall, it’s the very last scene that will keep people from forgetting this film. Even so, the payoff for the characters is underwhelming. While it’s easy to have low expectations from the obvious hint of future films in this universe, I am willing to see where it goes.
It’s a raw film that feels every bit of the gravity of living and more.
