M3gan Review

Written by Malignant screenwriter Akela Cooper & Story by James Wan Directed by Gerard Johnstone Staring Allison Williams Amie Donald & Violet McGraw.

After losing her parents in a car accident during a vacation ski trip, Cady moves in with her Aunt Gemma.

Gemma is an inventor & engineer at one of the world’s most premier toy manufacturers. Gemma and her team work to create an AI-assisted toy named M3gan and everything go awry from there.

The concept of this film is something that has been done before and often better, however, M3gan brings somewhat of a freshness to this genre. The humor and action are quite good once we finally get to it midway through the film, and it could have probably benefitted from an R rating as originally planned before studio involvement.

The film does VERY well with M3gan, however, lacks luster with all the other characters in my opinion. The closest character to care about was Cady, the other characters were simply unlikeable or uninteresting. Whenever M3gan is on screen the film is operating at an overall 9 however as soon as it rests on the shoulders of the other characters it operates at a steady 4. The film is not bad at all however would have been exceptionally better with more M3gan, who brings color and campiness to an otherwise dull set piece.

SUMMARY

The direction and acting were fine but unfortunately nothing groundbreaking or spectacular like what you’ve probably come to expect from a film with James Wan’s name tied to it.
