WESTWORLD meets CHUCKY 😉
Horror movies with children and with puppets have never been among my favourites. Too often they simply got on my nerves due to lame or hysteric acting and childish horror. But M3GAN is different in many ways. The depiction of the android toy girl is quite realistic – in terms of scifi that is, and it always shows a kind of being sinister and uncanny that slowly gets under your skin. The scenario successfully plays with the fact that IT, robotics and AI have become so complex and powerful that we (non-experts) can hardly understand how they work – and so we become quite afraid that we cannot control it and that there is potential danger lurking inside.
M3GAN provides a nice story background to set the stage for a slowly emerging emotional horror. This is neither a terminator-rip-off nor a gore fest or splatter flick, of course, yet the ending delivers quite some climax because we have grown quite attached to the characters here (the android definitely being one of them, not just a stupid killing machine).
Honestly, I expected a crappy movie, but I got it all wrong. This is some interesing entertainment that also has some appeal to the mind, because it makes us think about the pros an cons of how we develop as social beings, how we are about to get emotionally attached to powerful AI, how we (not) calculate the risks of AI running free … Naturally there are some errors in logic, for example: not even the most advanced AI knows how a certain tool works just by looking at it. But I guess making this AI learning process a part of the movie would mean turning a piece of entertainment into a documentary. So probably it’s OK to neglect the IT realism for means of btter paced entertainment.
I give this two thumbs up – and secretly wish for a sequel that digs even deeper into this territory … 🙂
