Critics Consensus

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

"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.

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.

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

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

Sep 2, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Morgan


I picked the ending the second I seen one character, sadly this film plods along with no real purpose. The talented cast can't rise a simple plot that was previously explored in ex machina to much more impressive themes. The film is lost and the exploration of character is next to zero, I expected better but was bitterly disappointed. I've been going through backlog of movies and reviewing them all over again with dates but a film like this I cannot waste my time. 26-03-2018.

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, only pared down and w/o dad's vision of a dirty futuristic Los Angeles. It's a tad slow, but certainly better than many give it credit for being. I liked it!

Un tema interesante bien dirigido que sobre sale con la gran actuación de Kate Mara pero que baja de nivel por sus mal intentados momentos de tensión y sus fallas fuertes de guión y se queda en una simple y palomera película de ciencia ficción.

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 it's about as scary as receiving a cable bill in the mail. Credit where credit is due to newcomer Anya_Taylor-Joy, delivering a solid performance in her first major role. Big names like Paul Giamatti and Jennifer Jason Leigh are criminally underused in their roles. Kate Mara does a good enough job but the material doesn't allow her much of a range which causes her performance to fall flat. Morgan is your typical mad scientist meet dumb logic scary movie. If only someone could have made the story more interesting and better utilized its talented cast. Instead Morgan just becomes another wasted opportunity in the world of Sci-fi Horror.
