Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 5.1
The Hollywood Reporter -
The thrilling premise of Morgan eventually gets muddled amid standard thriller-action, blunting the intended impact of a final sequence that should produce chills, but instead merely provides information. Still, those seeking smart, edgy genre fare will find plenty to savor in this well-cast drama.
Consequence of Sound -
Morgan isn't hard sci-fi. It isn't trying to solve the questions that have suffused the genre since its inception. Rather, it couches those ever-more-timely concerns in scenes of high action and affecting character connection.
The Seattle Times -
Anchored by Mara's rigidly controlled performance and Taylor-Joy's tremulous yet quietly menacing work, Morgan is an effective tension generator that unfortunately falls apart at the end.
Entertainment Weekly -
Is Morgan hardwired for violence, or is “she” just a synthetic naïf with a bloody glitch? Taylor-Joy and the rest of the ace cast make you care about the answer to that question. The script? Less so.
A corporate risk-management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.
