If you're looking for something of the substance of Ex Machina, watch Ex Machina. Morgan is a straightforward science fiction thriller, nothing more, nothing less. It is a well-crafted, entertaining movie with a slight twist in the denouement. It might have been conceived as a satire of corporate greed/capitalism but it need not be viewed on that level. Not the greatest movie ever made but far from the worst. It is certainly the equal of or better than the fare offered on broadcast television or premium cable "originals". If you like this sort of thing, you'll like Morgan.

I thought Splice was better - better story better acting. Different science experiment.

This is a movie of some depth, but not a lot... look at it as a way to enjoy snuggling on the couch. The storyline was a bit predictable, and I figured out the end about halfway through. I know what I wanted to happen, and it kind of did end that way. Watch the short film in the special features first, it has a similar feel but is better. Both had good character development, and an interesting story that I thought about afterwards.

I enjoyed this movie, and as previously stated, Ex Machina it is not. The writers and directors of these two films had different goals, obviously. I have read through the comments and agree with some, but not all (surprised? (tic))

Nice cinematography. No substance.

This copy plays well on my computer but not through my DVD player to the TV. It had a lot of distortion and stops.

Ex Machina it is not. Rather a poor imitation of everything that inspired it, I'm surprised Ridley Scott was one of its producers...I mean next time just spell it out to potential copycats...save them the trouble. The so-called plot twist wasn't one for me, I figured that out like five or ten minutes in.

Honestly? Not sure what it was about. Got about 10 minutes in then jumped around looking for hope and found nothing. No sci-fi or special effects really. It's unwatchable.

Morgan: [looking out over the lake] Is this what heaven's like?

Dr. Amy Menser: I don't know.

Morgan: It must be. I feel... Alive.

Do you know the cruelest thing you can do to someone you've locked in a room? Press their face to the window.

Morgan's not a "she." It's an "it."
-Oh, you're wrong about that, Miss Weathers. She's smart. She's smarter than any of us. But that's not what makes
Morgan special. There was joy in her heart before we shoved her back in that box.
===
She was exactly what we intended, a hybrid biological organism with the capacity for autonomous decision-making
and sophisticated emotional responses.
===
"Risk management consultant"?
-Pretty much how it sounds. Most corporations employ a certain amount of risk and I assess that risk against anticipated profit.
Of course. Anticipated profit.
===
We had anticipated that by developing a model that was more self-aware, more autonomous, and more human,
we could teach it to be the best of what we are.
