Morgan

Just for a start off this movie is not a documentary about a well known high – class car marque, confusion over.

Ever heard of Luke Scott the director ? Well,you are sure to have heard of his dad Ridley Scott and it appears that Luke may have watched one or two of his dad’s movies.

Did you happen to catch a movie from a year or two ago called Ex Machina. If you did the basic premise is similar – how intelligent and emotionally human should you make artificial intelligence and what do you do when you introduce it to humans. If you decide to do this, remember always like a young child it will absorb both the good and the bad of the human condition. Why does this never end well !!

Morgan ( Anya Taylor – Joy ) has been introduced to the world, all be it on a limited basis on a segregated scientific reservation. An incident happens, and Morgan is placed in temporary lockdown as an assesment is required. Enter Kate Mara as a corporate employee to dig into what caused Morgan’s outburst.

To use a metaphor  – Once you let the genie out of the bottle, it’s hard to put the genie back in. I think you can see where this is going can’t you. Part spooky tale, part Sci – Fi and part one act play, I had not heard much about this movie, bar it’s movie trailer. Well if you like the sound of this tale, this is the movie for you. If this is Luke Scott’s first calling card, I for one will be looking forward to it.

This movie is less visually immersive that the previously mentioned Ex Machina, but don’t let that disuade you from checking this out. What it may lacks in CGI spectacular, it more than makes up with it’s strong storyline.

This movie is not the first to point out why we shouldn’t play God, it asks that eternal question – Just because we can do it, does it mean that we should. I think you know the answer don’t you !!
