Technology is constantly advancing, new discoveries are made every day, and the world continues to progress.While this is true in today’s world, it is only a matter of time before artificial intelligence takes over as the amount of technology that consumes our lives increases. , is a common theme in science fiction, especially terminatorSome might argue that this movie could be considered a horror movie masquerading as a sci-fi movie, but that’s another story. Well, somewhat new.that movie M3GAN. A lifelike doll that can think, learn and make rational decisions. But this doll isn’t your typical Chucky-like doll, M3GAN is a little different.
The film follows the tragic loss of nine-year-old Cady (Violet McGraw), who lost her parents in a devastating car accident. Per her mother’s will, Caddy will live with her Aunt Gemma (Allison Williams), who works in robotics and designs these Furby look-alikes.These toys are available in different languages. to keep children entertained and ready to respond. Plus, you can poop. It’s a lucrative business, and the company Gemma works for, Funki, consumes her life. not.
Caddy has been quiet since the death of her parents and obsessed with technology, but not as much as Gemma, who lives on her cell phone and is physically and emotionally absent from Caddy. There are no toys in her house, but there are some collectibles that Gemma is afraid to touch. Under the pressure of releasing new prototype toys to compete with her competitors, Gemma lacks the skills to raise children and is unable to communicate as if they were part of a loving family. , take time to introduce M3GAN (Model 3 Generative Android). She has a lifelike face and has all the latest microchip technology that makes Alexa look like her phonebook. Once the model is fully built, M3GAN exhibits incredible knowledge and even behaves in ways that make developers suspicious.
M3GAN is very impressive. She doesn’t look as goofy as Chucky did a few years ago in the 2019 Child’s Play reboot, and while M3GAN looks like a doll, she’s four feet tall and wears a variety of clothes. and sees everything with big green eyes. Her microchip allows even her facial expressions to be analyzed. New Zealand actress Amie Donald will physically play her M3GAN, with Jenna Davis providing the voice. I was impressed with the skill of the filmmakers in bringing this doll to life. Kudos to her Amie Donald for matching M3GAN moves. Her movements look just like the real thing when you look at her from a distance. It doesn’t have the classic clunkiness of animatronics, but M3GAN made sure Amie Donald matched the puppet’s movements perfectly.
plot of M3GAN It’s pretty standard. Allison instructs her M3GAN to protect Caddy from physical or mental harm. Hey she ordered. M3GAn only listens. What struck me about this film is the themes it tackles. Social isolation when consumed by technology, broken relationships at the hands of technology and, of course, the long-feared reality of AI. I was worried about this movie, especially her PG-13 rating, but I didn’t miss the bloody violence and foul language. I fell in love with the atmosphere of the movie and loved seeing Gemma and Cady’s chemistry. These two characters in her barely know each other, but are separated by technology and selfishness. While Gemma is immersed in her own work, Cady is obsessed with this prototype doll Gemma created and designed as a way for the doll to act as a surrogate when her parents are away. .
Granted, the film throws away all the good ideas it’s working on to please horror fans with a violent third act, but for most of the film, I’m stuck with these characters to get involved. became. One thing to mention is that this movie has quite a bit of comedy that surprised me, especially when M3GAN rescues her Cady from a bully who is bullying her, it’s chilling There are moments like The characters in the film are selfish, but they serve as a reminder that being obsessed with technology and ignoring the realities of life can lead to serious problems. I think it’s a decent third act, and I didn’t really like seeing Ronnie Chen play David, Gemma’s boss. He was fine, but there was nothing I could do to cheer him on.
Directed by Gerald Johnstone M3GAN, and his visual style looks great. You may have seen his iconic dance scenes already, but he creates films that look great, especially when lighting is important in a particular scene. The script was written by her Akela Cooper and James Wan, luminaries in the horror industry. I enjoyed exploring their technology, especially when it involved children. This isn’t a scary movie, but it features genuine suspense and no blatant gore, so more viewers will be able to see it.
Scored 3.5 out of 5
Despite the trite third act, M3GAN A surprise entry in the familiar horror genre, but more fun to watch than a reboot play houseEnjoyed the cast except for Ronnie Chen and watched this doll come to life. It’s by no means a perfect movie, but it’s neither boring nor overly violent. While watching this movie, you might find that you can put your phone down and see the world in front of you. M3GAN It certainly has its shortcomings, but it’s good enough to recommend watching. Instead, stick to stuffed animals and talkative Cassie dolls.
