Morgan is a throwback sci-fi pulp piece that thinks a bit too highly of itself... Regardless, it's better than most Labor Day releases, and is sure to provide a good time at the movies as well as some food for thought afterwards.
Morgan' has some tension-filled wallop that resonates occasionally but the draggy drama never quite stimulates to the point of presenting Taylor-Joy's lab-table vixen as nothing more than a brutish brat with a temper.
While Seth W Owen's screenplay doesn't deliver on all the interesting points he raises about synthetic life forms, he and Scott work well together in the final lap, which has enough well-constructed twists to get the picture back on track.
Morgan is not as boundary-pushing as it could have been -- it's nowhere near as original as last year's Ex Machina, which explored similar themes but felt completely fresh in a way that Morgan doesn't.
