Film: M3GAN Click for more info

First things first I guess: M3GAN is not the millennial's answer to Chucky, even though I admit that that is what I was expecting. No, M3GAN manages to make the creepy toy genre it's own, and amazingly manages to inject some new things into the mix.

That's not to say this was a great film. Neither was it bad. It was passable and although I don't regret spending the time to watch it, I don't think I'd watch it again, nor have missed anything if I didn't the first time.

I suppose really it was all very predictable and not as clever as its antagonist. In a world of AI and robotics it might be a bit of a reminder-slash-warning about the future to come but it's also slapstick enough for that message not to be taken seriously. That's actually a bit of a shame.

Otherwise it was well built, with props to M3GAN herself (and that dance). Not quite a recommendation though, unless you already know what you're getting yourself into.
