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.

With a cast this good, it'd be near impossible for Morgan to be anything less than gripping. And it is, for the most part, establishing its central mystery, and odd tone, right off the bat.

Morgan boasts a stellar ensemble, an intriguing stylistic mishmash, and history's lamest car chase.

Morgan is impressive on many levels. It feels like a Seventies indie, made in multiple shades of moral gray, with some red blood splatter.

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.

Although flawed and scrappy, there are enough positives to recommend Morgan.

Thankfully, Morgan doesn't outstay its welcome: it's a brisk, ninety-minute B-movie with an A-list cast.

...it lacks substance, but it's big, loud and thrilling...

Alex Garland's 2015 cult hit Ex Machina, with Alicia Vikander as the robo-girl, trod similar ground; it proved more intellectually ambitious, though Morgan is a dash more fun.

Promising since the beginning; the presentation of its characters is smart and creates an aura of suspense in a neat and sinuous way. [Full review in Spanish]

A mix between science-fiction, artificial intelligence sub-genre, and a horror story with characters trapped in a confined space. [Full review in Spanish]

Morgan falls short in many regards, but Luke Scott and the rest of the film-making team seem to be attempting something intriguing.

It's begging for a more virtuoso visual treatment to compensate for its substantive flimsiness, or a pulpy tone. See it to be an early member of Anya Taylor-Joy's fan club.

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.

Taking Alicia Vikander's 2015 'Ex Machina' one step further... despite the tilt towards horror and unnecessary graphic violence, it has fine acting, tight directing, and holds interest throughout.

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

Cold around the heart. But that's what makes it work.

As yet another riff on Frankenstein and those overreaching scientists who want to play God, Morgan offers dread, androgyny, gore and violence but no magic.

While it is set firmly in the present, or at best a few years out, the message is clear; the days of Blade Runner are closer than we may think.
