First-Time Director Luke Scott Proves That He Has The Chops

FIRST-TIME director Luke Scott proves that he has the chops to fill the shoes of his renowned father, Ridley Scott.

For me, Morgan really came out of nowhere and I was initially quite sceptical when I first saw the trailer. But after sitting through it, I have to say that Morgan is a very entertaining movie.

If you love sci-fi thrillers, this should be right up your alley, as it delves into human evolution and bio-engineering with synthetic DNA.

In a secluded laboratory, a group of scientists has created Morgan (Anya Taylor-Joy), a synthetic who not only looks like a normal girl but also displays an emotional capacity not normal for synthetics.

After a terrifying accident involving Morgan, corporate troubleshooter Lee Weathers (Kate Mara) is sent to ­investigate and evaluate the incident. She begins to unravel what caused the accident and to figure out the best course of action.

Of course, things get a little more ­complicated.

For a movie that is just 92 minutes long, I really liked the pacing as it didn’t feel too rushed, and everything played out nicely.

The first half of the movie is tense, but mostly filled with ­dialogue, whereas the action takes place closer to its ending.

Speaking of the ending, I also liked how things played out.

Another great thing about the cast is that it is made up of a good balance of veterans and newcomers, both of whom play their roles perfectly.

My only gripe is that two members of the cast, Michelle Yeoh and Paul ­Giamatti, are on screen for mere minutes.

Yeoh’s character should have had more screen time, as she was one of the chief scientists who worked on ­bringing Morgan to life.

At the end of the day though, I thoroughly enjoyed Morgan. If you’re a fan of sci-fi and thrillers, you should definitely watch this movie.
