In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy). The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities. Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.

  • Yawn......

    Leave X-men as is. Horribly unoriginal and laughably predictable. Go back and watch Dark Angel re-runs instead, you will thank me.

  • I was surprised

    By keirchisholmlee
    This was corny. In a good way. To me this movie had an 80s high school romance feel, mixed in with some Stranger Things, Goosebumps, and... Please Like Me? I came prepared to hate this movie and I was very pleasantly surprised. Wish the next two would be made: Alien invasion and then hell? Whyyyyy Disney? Whyyyyy???

    Character development makes absolutely no sense. The plot is predictable, campy and uninspired. The written script is bad. The acting is bad (probably because the script is so awful) I love X-Men movies. Even X2 and X3. This was so awful the only way I could make it through was to make fun of it the entire time.
