    Enjoyable, Light hearted (for a horror), could have been better
    Movie was enjoyable enough.

    They dropped the rating, I assume to sell more tickets, probably to the detriment of what could/should have been a better film.

    As other's have said, you've already seen most of the "best bits" all over the internet already.

    It's easy to draw comparisons to Child's Play, however it's not really a fair comparison - Chucky was possessed by a Serial Killer, and was hiding inside a fairly basic toy. You knew what his motivations were going to be from the get go, and part of the suspense/scare was when the doll started acting beyond its capabilities . M3GAN was already very advanced - walking/talking etc. It's kind of hard to know her motivations, and they maybe could have explored the AI side of things a bit more.

    The characters were a little bland also

    That aside, it was a fun movie, and not too long at 1:40. I wouldn't bother watching again, unless they did an Editors Cut, restoring the higher rating. I would be interested to see that.

    Intense and likeable!
    I think the movie is aware of itself and does perfectly the things that is supposed to do. I specially like that in many scenes you dont know how to feel. You feel bad when someone is getting hurt when the same time you enjoy M3gan kicking ass with some fancy moves while shes creepy as hell. Also the "AI becoming evil scenario" may seem boring but i promise that they explore a different part that has to do with human nature. I wish they could emphasise on that a bit extra. Also i was expecting more of those disturbing moments and finally the last 10 mins felt really rushed. But honestly they try to go somewhere deeper and combined with the good acting and fine production i want to rate this movie higher than i maybe should. Its maybe the best i ve ever seen at the "AI creepy doll goes bad" category.
