A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent 'human', who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.I'm surprised by how close this has got to its release date (September 2) and yet managed to stay off my radar.
Time to correct that as Morgan - about a doomed experiment to genetically engineer a living being - looks like my cup of tea.
Superficially, the film appears to have thematic similarities to 2014's Lucy, which is another factor in its favour.
And add to that the following brilliant "reaction video" below, and I'm hooked.
Normally, I couldn't give two hoots for a "reaction video" (who cares, right?), but this one features robots (!!!) - magicLab’s EDI (Electronic Deceptive Intelligence) and the University of Pisa’s FACE (Facial Automation for Conveying Emotions) - reacting to a trailer for Morgan.
And I have a soft spot for robots. In fact, after this, I think I'm rather taken with EDI.
