Morgan opens with a teenage girl who channels her anger by stabbing a scientist right the in the eye hole. Which instantly made me go, “Well that was just a waste of twenty bucks on popcorn.”
In this movie a group of scientists make Morgan (Anya Taylor-Joy) who is part human, part robot, and all bitch. And after the stabbing, the company who funds the Morgan project sends out Kate Mara to clean up the mess. The only problem is this five foot three powerhouse looks like she would have difficulty taking on a strong gust of wind.
But I suspended belief and spent the next half hour getting to know the scientists who were just going to end up dead as a doornail. And every scientist in this movie is a tool except for the hunky cook who likes his kitchen stocked with good food, good people and a loaded rifle. When Mara obviously points the rifle I was like, “So you’re telling me I should remember this for later.”
But the action really starts to pick up when the psychologist Paul Giamatti arrives to figure out why Morgan is 50 shades of crazy. And like an idiot he goes into her locked room, riles her up and then ends up with Morgan using his neck as a Vegas buffet.
Which made me go, “Well he is a good actor, so I kinda think the bastard deserved it.”
Next Morgan is restrained and the head scientist Michelle Yeoh decides it’s time for Morgan to take a little dirt nap. But once Yeoh leaves the room the other scientists get together and say, “Morgan has stabbed and killed but we just think she is a little misunderstood. Let’s save our cute killer.” And that’s when Morgan turns on the scientists one by one and makes them all really dead.
But while all of this is happening, Kate Mara hunts Morgan like she’s freaking terminator. Mara gets thrown out of a window, crashes a car and gets stabbed in the stomach by a log. Which made me say, “It only too me the whole movie to figure out, that you are a crazy robot bitch too.”
ADD review: It’s good. If you can make it through the boring talky talky parts you just have to believe a five year old who looks like a tween cares more about killing and visting a lake than talking on the phone.
