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

Critic Reviews for Morgan
"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.
The predictable twist hampers the story's suspense, and the film doesn't dip beyond the superficial.
Audience Reviews for Morgan
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.
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 Scott could call the twist in this movie five minutes in, not the least of which because of Kate Mara's robotic acting. I really wanted to like this film because it is supposed to be a way for a lot of these b-list actors to get out of their casting quagmires. Unfortunately, Rose Leslie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones, and Michelle Yeoh could not overcome the bad dialogue or the shadows cast by the iconic "Blade Runner" or the recent "Ex Machina". And the completely predictable ending only sealed "Morgan" away in a maximum-security, b-movie vault. What's more frustrating is that there is a genuinely tense Turing test scene between Paul Giamatti and Anya Taylor-Joy that is actually better than the opening scene of "Blade Runner". Then, Luke Scott pisses the movie down his leg when he slouches over to Mara and films some of the worst examples of choppy, fast editing to give the illusion of a hand-to-hand action sequence. Finally, I would suggest you stop watching the film about 20 minutes before it ends, just so you aren't confused about why the film is even titled "Morgan".
