QuickHit: ‘Morgan’


The film lures you into thinking its one thing – an artful, ambitious sci-fi mystery that ponders the social and real-world ramifications of artificial intelligence, a la “Ex Machina” – before abruptly shifting into something else entirely – a bland, forgettable action-horror shoot-em-up, a la “iRobot”, that undermines all the good-will the film earned in its first half. I really wanted to like this film, but with a final act as ill-conceived as the one it provides, I wound up walking away cold.
