Josh Boone’s New Mutants has been called “an eye-rolling case of déjà vu” and “quite the head trip”
The reviews are (sort of) in for the long-awaited The New Mutants. Shot all the way back in 2017, the movie suffered various delays due to big-screen clashes and the Disney-Fox merger. Now that Josh Boone’s movie has finally made its way to cinemas, many U.S. based critics are opting not to review the movie due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
According to The A.V. Club, the reason is that Disney hasn’t provided screening links or safe-screening options. However, there are cinemas open in other parts of the world – including France, Canada, and the U.K. – which has led to reviews of the New Mutants emerging online. Our own review (we’re based in the U.K., where wearing a mask in cinemas is mandatory and coronavirus is under more control) will be on the way, once we’re able to get tickets (it opens a week later here).
For the meantime, we’ve rounded up all reviews that are currently available on Fox’s teenage mutant horror – and the verdict is mixed, to say the least. Check out The New Mutants reviews below.
