AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Morgan neglects to develop its decent premise, opting instead to settle for a garden-variety sci-fi thriller with more action than ideas.

Critic Reviews for Morgan

All Critics (149) | Top Critics (34)

"What is Morgan?" the film's marketing campaign has been asking for weeks. Turns out, Morgan is just another sci-fi film that's only engineered to disappoint.

January 2, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

An initially intriguing but ultimately flimsy sci-fi action thriller.

October 10, 2016 | Full Review…

Morgan is an unassuming little thriller, nicely put together and engaging enough while you're watching, though its memory is likely to vaporize hours, or even minutes, after you've seen it.

Thanks to Morgan, we know what bedtime stories Ridley Scott told his kids.

Top Critic

It's an attempt to wed philosophical science fiction concepts with bloody horror - a dubious endeavor that somehow works.

September 2, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The predictable twist hampers the story's suspense, and the film doesn't dip beyond the superficial.

I picked the ending the second I seen one character, sadly this film plods along with no real purpose. The talented cast can't rise a simple plot that was previously explored in ex machina to much more impressive themes. The film is lost and the exploration of character is next to zero, I expected better but was bitterly disappointed. I've been going through backlog of movies and reviewing them all over again with dates but a film like this I cannot waste my time. 26-03-2018.

Chip off the old block Luke Scott (son of Ripley) could've gone anyway he wanted with his debut offering, but nooo. What he does is to remake Blade Runner, only pared down and w/o dad's vision of a dirty futuristic Los Angeles. It's a tad slow, but certainly better than many give it credit for being. I liked it!

"There was joy in her heart before we shoved her back in that box." - Dr. Kathy Grieff In the wake of a violent incident at a research facility for artificial humans, the parent company sends a consultant to determine if termination is in order. After her breakthrough performance in THE WITCH, Anya Taylor-Joy confirms her potential as Morgan, a lab-grown hominid that the team has grown attached to. After carefully establishing the situation, the plot mechanics are thrown into high gear after an absurd encounter with a psychologist. Much like its titular character, MORGAN has a promising start before it snaps under a bevy of baffling decisions.
