The Darkest Minds – What Happens Next?

The Darkest Mind is the latest in the long line of “teenage science-fiction” that has become a movie. From the 5th Wave via The Maze Runner series to The Hunger Games, we’ve seen it all before.

This one is more the rise of psychic powers – the classic analogy for puberty.  Apart from that, it does look like a good one of this genre.  Some are good but most are just have the feeling of it’s just another cliché ridden science fiction movie.

When teens mysteriously develop powerful new abilities, they are declared a threat by the government and detained. Sixteen-year-old Ruby, one of the most powerful young people anyone has encountered, escapes her camp and joins a group of runaway teens seeking safe haven. Soon this newfound family realizes that, in a world in which the adults in power have betrayed them, running is not enough and they must wage a resistance, using their collective power to take back control of their future.
