Alsonso Cuaron's ROMA Review 'Beautiful Masterpiece'

Movie Review: MORGAN File The Film Under Decent Attempt

RAMA is back with another great review.

If you liked "Cube" or "Event Horizon," you'll like MORGAN

The film MORGAN is one that you’d file under decent attempt. Directed by Ridley’s son, Luke Scott, you wonder if the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree or the talent gets passed down trough genes, well, don’t expect MORGAN to be on the same level as Ridley’s “Alien,” that’s for sure, but again, a decent attempt is what it is, the closest to a compliment I can give the film at this point.

Kate Mara plays a corporate risk management officer, a troubleshooter, and she’s sent to a top secret location to investigate and evaluate a recent accident, she’s supposed to be there to find out what went wrong and judge the asset in terms of the overall profit. At this top secret location, scientists have successfully created what is perceived to be the perfect human (Anya Taylor-Joy) but turns out, she comes with her own set of unpredictable threats.

What I can appreciate about MORGAN is that it takes familiar concepts from the world of science fiction and makes it its own. Creating life out of nothing or creating a life that’s flawless has always been a fascination for ages. The film has its own way of addressing that. It’s not perfect but the build up, the intensity, and the way things escalate as soon as situations go sideways, they’re all well-paced and shot quite nicely. Definitely the one that stands out the most is young actress Anya Taylor-Joy, she already impressed me in “The Witch” earlier this year, and so her cold, calculating, fearsome performance in MORGAN only solidifies her reputation as the latest incredible force to be reckoned with. Better watch out for that one, she’s going to go places. With its ensemble cast and its emphasis on keeping you guessing till the very end while wowing you with fight sequences and a big reveal, MORGAN is just the right dose of horror/sci-fi/thriller for us fans of such films as 1997’s “Cube” or “Event Horizon"

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
