A pretend Sci-Fi with all the nuance of a slasher film
Verified purchase
A pretend scifi with all the nuance of a slasher film. This movie holds itself out to be a science fiction film about a semi synthetic, engineered humanoid which, for lack of a better term, malfunctions. Almost nothing happens for the first half hour but the one thing that does happen is the most interesting scene in the entire movie. Nearly all the characters are dumb as can be, which is worse because they're all supposed to be highly educated, except for the cook who turns out to to be the smartest one. Any sci-fi fans will certainly be disappointed by this film. It is basically the same story as Blade Runner with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer and the intelligence of a bag of hammers. The reason that the individual was engineered is revealed later on in the movie which just makes many of the glaring plot holes even bigger and more ridiculous. And just to make things a little dumber it devolves into nothing more than a bare-knuckle fighting movie with a little girl as the badass. The only reason this movie gets two stars is because the acting is quite good, as well as the cynamotography and production values. Of course none of these things can save this craptacular story. This review is contained no spoilers. the movie itself is the spoiler, if you've ever seen a movie before or read a book.

Woman VS Mutant VS Deer With Vertigo
Verified purchase
We were hyped about Morgan for a long time. Like a long long long long time. Every time we were going to watch a movie, we spent the time searching Netflix, searching honeypots, trying to find it. Finally when it became available on Amazon we decided the 5 dollars was worth it for a chance to see it.

I will do my best to review it without spoilers:

MORGAN does everything you want a sci-fi-murder-thriller-The-Fugitive-but-with-less-talking action movie to do. Not as well as some, but better than others.
MORGAN is sort of like what you would get if you put a bunch of Mercedes Benz commercial writers in a room with a bunch of Connecticut tourism writers, and then injected them all with a virus that turned them all into AXE wearing 13 year old Call Of Duty fanboys and told them to "make a movie about how cloning is bad".

Things you will learn from watching MORGAN:

- People in the future still hate HR Departments
- Paul Giamatti's career peaked as The Rhino
- That girl who says "You know nothing Jon Snow" can say other things
- They couldn't afford Ryan Gosling or Tom Hardy so they got Boyd Holbrook (and he is pretty good)
- It's not nice to speak Chinese at dinner and everyone else will be really put off by it
- Mercedes don't have side airbags on the doors at all (??? safety concern ???)
- Kate Mara could outrun a T-Rex in those heels
- Haley Joel Osment played the title character better in AI
- Deer are incredibly susceptible to gravity when they are near critical plot points
- You can die from having your mouth covered for 27 seconds
- Has science gone too far? Maybe? Is that Stryker from X-Men 2? Maybe?

Overall I would say it wasn't as good as the water bottle I bought on Amazon, but like, that thing is awesome. Stainless Steel and everything.

Rent MORGAN if you hate deer and love Kate Mara and could go either way about mediocre plot developments.

A Fun Watch for a Sunday Evening!

Morgan was filled with suspense and excitement! I really loved the casting for it! Especially Anya Taylor-Joy (as Morgan) and Rose Leslie (as Amy). Anya gave a really subtle and entrancing performance as Morgan. You can see so much intelligence behind her eyes as she shifts through the different emotions from innocent and relatable to angry and vengeful. There was so much going on in the character of Morgan, so much complexity. You can see the cruelty of her circumstances, how her life was treated with such careless thought from the higher ups, which makes the audience vouch for her a bit. But then you get to that fine line of when parts of her humanity simply aren't there or simply haven't been developed yet. Killing was simply an act out of either naivete or survival. Either way moral decisions are cast in a shade of gray. Then there was Amy. The lovable, kind, and caring Amy. Morgan's rock essentially. The one who Morgan trusted and loved more than anything and anyone else. Amy was essentially Morgan's surrogate mother. And Rose played the role greatly!
Characters aside, I honestly predicted most of the plot as I was watching the movie. Hard to say if it was obvious or if I've just gotten really good at figuring things out over the years. I managed to read into the cues and clues along the way and for the most part didn't find the twists quite twisty enough to my liking. Still enjoyable nonetheless!
Overall loved the theme of the movie, the ideas behind it, and thought it was an overall good look movie (visually and tonally)!

Takes more than biology to be truly human...
Verified purchase
Hate to say it, but I saw the ending about five minutes into this...must be watching too many movies...a truly cautionary tale about how it takes more than biology to be human. Kate Mara is great as the ice cold, calculating corporate minion, Lee Weathers, and Anya Taylor-Joy is her usual tour de force as the titular Morgan...a super soldier program gone awry, but then what would one expect when one sets out to play God? Creating a human with no background, no socialization, no support system...then expecting anything other than total disaster? Hope the transhumanists are paying attention...this movie does raise that important question, what is a human, other than biology? Great premise, well scripted, and superbly acted...

So very... okay?
Verified purchase
A friend of mine wanted to check this one out, so we (accidentally) purchased it on Amazon. It started out very promising, but nothing ever really came of the story. A lot of the moments that we meant to be suspenseful or emotional just fell flat. Characters make bewildering decisions, and it just wasn't unique or interesting. In the end, it just made me want to watch Ex Machina again. It's not garbage, but it's just good enough to make you wish that it were better.

Avoid unless there's nothing else to watch.

Beautiful
Verified purchase
Thoughtfully written, extremely well-acted. Nice to see what Anya Taylor-Joy had done pre-Queen's Gambit (she's almost as fabulous here). Quite a moving piece about a 4th-gen human-form AI struggling to find herself and survive against a corporate power structure with a few interesting surprises in store. Highly recommended.

Decent film, but not the best I've seen.
Verified purchase
This was an okay film. Parts of it seemed VERY unrealistic, and not because of the robot..or whatever she was. For example, how is a girl who is only five supposedly, know how to fight so well, when they never mentioned giving her any kind of fighting lessons? Also why did she go from being calm at the "beginning" of her life to being an absolute killing machine? The movie showed no progression.

Defitely worth watching. Interesting premise.
Verified purchase
Might not appeal to everyone. A bit far-fetched sci-fi. Good action and good acting and good cast. I may be a little dense but I didn't see the end coming. It wrapped things up conclusively.
