    It is a crazy movie and all over the place. It's maybe the most uneven pace I've seen since a long time, things suddenly get very dark/threatening but come back to a simple pace as quickly. It is still very entertaining especially with Olivia who it's definitely game to play this crazy woman. It can be a little hard to follow, the story tries to surprise you with some twist and some weird scenes but doesn't really go all the way with it, so it lets you a little confused with the feeling that you missed a point or a proper explanation. At the end, it's a crazy ride for the viewers and those uncalled shocking moments are part of the fun. Also, the actors playing the teenagers really looks like high-schoolers, which is rare in movie and also contribute to make their dark turn of fate even more efficient (that said they make some very stupid decisions here, and it's hard to not think about how they deserve their fate).

    Spencer and a few decent cast members can't save this one. It tries to come off as a kind of Carrie revenge story but it's premise backfires and offends. The key difference was the supernatural powers Carrie had to kill her bullies; this film makes Ma a sadistic killer that is all too realistic, thereby breaking the rule by treating this as possible in real life.

    Octavia Spencer is the only reason that draws your attention to see this film. This film was disturbing.. Ma was taunted and embarrassed by her school mates. She chooses revenge on their offsprings 20 years later. And inflict pain on them....

    Ugh! What a bore. The jump scenes were lack luster if barely there and the whole movie was pieced together by plots from three other movies. This movie is border line plagiarizing. Snoozer, snoozer, snooze.... :-(

    Ma makes for a fun kill fest of a horror movie that tackles uncomfortable ideas in different ways that might not always be the most effective. The way it hooks you into the story through its relatable feelings is a good addition to the movie but it never stands out with a simply euphemized execution that just never seems to hit you on a personal level.

    Film all in all acted with extreme naturalness, it is a pity that this is the only good thing that this film has, for the rest it is nothing special. The plot is poorly researched and crammed with holes, even the motives of the bad sleep stupid and throughout the film the reactions of the antagonist are too exaggerated

    Ma é uma simpática senhora que compra bebidas para jovens garotos que não podem beber, e que em breve faria festas em sua casa porém a estranha senhora que se mostrava educada e uma ótima pessoa, segredos viriam a tona como a filha que a Ma mantinha prisioneira sem deixar ela sair inclusive para escola, isso tudo explicado pelo bullying sofrido na escola e que ela não queria o mesmo para a filha, é um filme que mostra o que uma 'brincadeira' fazem com um pessoa, muito triste e desolador.

    It's okay. Good acting, but could've been more dynamic and less lengthy.

    It's like a trip to the doctor's, it will spook you big time when you're sick. Or you need a man...
