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

Kate Erbland

"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.

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

The Sunday Age

A B-movie with pretension to high-minded inquiry, addressing artificial life and the sanctity of human existence, but when the story actually engages with the themes the only outcome is a reductive body count and artful blood splatter on concrete.

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.

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

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

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

Even I, a self-prescribed horror movie skeptic, found myself wrapped up in Morgan - I was invested in the characters, I (mostly) bought into the plot and even found myself embracing some of the gore by the end.

The makers of Morgan are far more interested in gun fights and grisly slayings than in the implications of for-profit genetic monkey business.

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,… More

If you are Ridley Scott's son, don't make movies like he did. This should be common sense. I know it might be hereditary, but almost anyone but Luke… More

While I thoroughly enjoyed the twist at the end, it wasn't enough to save the overall stupidity with the film. Morgan is sold as a horror film but… More

It's beginning to feel like a trend. This thing where the first hour or so of a film is really promising before deciding to devolve into a predictable and… More

Don't let its genres fool you. This movie does not use any sign of horror whatsoever and Morgan is not designed to be one. Instead, Morgan is supposed to… More
