Megan Movie Review: James Wan & Blumhouse Strike Again!

Megan (M3gan) Movie Review: James Wan & Blumhouse has come together to give another Horror Thriller titled “M3gan” which hits close to home in the current world of artificial intelligence-driven devices all around us.

M3gan is styled as MΞGAN stars Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Amie Donald, and Jenna Davis along with other characters, It tells the story of an artificially intelligent doll who has all the qualities that a companion should along with constantly learning abilities and self-awareness but then those qualities make her become hostile towards people and how it all comes into play is what we see in this 90-minute horror flick from the masters of horror.

Cady is the sole survivor of an accident in the mountains where she had gone with her parents. After the accident, she’s sent to live with her aunt Gemma who is a roboticist, at a Robotic Toys Company.

Her aunt has been assigned to work on a prototype of a cheaper version of their currently super hit toy but instead, she’s been working on M3gan short for Model 3 Generative Android which is a super smart, spontaneous, and self-learning robotic doll that is 4 feet tall however the demo ends up in a short explosion of the prototype.

Gemma and Cady on the other hand are trying to adjust together and while Gemma finds it a bit hard to manage work and Cady together, she comes up with the idea of making M3gan again and introducing her to Cady preparing a LIVE Demo for her boss.

M3gan outperforms on all counts on the demo and the project takes flight but at the same time the idea of a companion in the form of a doll that is replicating all the functions of a parent, from teaching the child to learn and different habits and M3gan on the other hand, her prototype was designed without proper protocols and this starts M3gan to decide on her own that she is the sole protector of Cady and anyone who tries to hurt her, M3gan starts to hurt them.

It starts with the neighboring dog that bites Cady, then a boy in outdoor school, and then the neighbor lady ultimately leading to a collision between Gemma and M3gan.

Megan 2 Release Date

Showing us the wrong side of artificially intelligent robots is not new but this film has errors on both sides as it does not show you only the bad side of robots but the human side too. Gemma did create her but didn’t give her proper protocols and that’s quite interesting to see, the film doesn’t put the blame on either side but it’s a story of negligence in creation going wrong.

The film is definitely a thrilling experience as you would expect from a collaboration between James Wan and Blumhouse but there’s not much horror, which is quite understandable. It also feels like satire sometimes as well. The film is quite short and the makers have kept it crisp which is a nice touch.

The screenplay doesn’t let you stray away and the acting is fairly well. There’s one thing that didn’t sit well is how easily Cady let go of M3gan and how because at one point we’re seeing that she practically hates everything without M3gan but then in some hours, she’s ready to fight against her. I guess, if that was explored a bit more rather, it would’ve made sense but other than that, M3gan is a nice watch.

Final Verdict: 3/5

“M3gan is the story of right now, the age of artificially intelligent devices where your behaviors and whereabouts are nothing but an input to the learning model so why not indulge yourself in the story of yourself.”
