M3GAN Movie Review

Alexandra Cuevas

The movie M3GAN is a horror movie that has a sci-fi twist on it. Sci-Fi and horror movie lovers will certainly enjoy this film. The movie is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes long, which is not bad for a movie at all. The film was directed by Gerard Johnstone, and written by Akela Cooper, from a story by Cooper Wan and James Wan. The main premise of the movie is that it is centered around a young girl named Cady, and unfortunately, she and her parents are involved in a car accident due to the snow. With this, Cady becomes an orphan and is then sent to live with her aunt, Gemma. Gemma is a roboticist, who works for the toy company, Funki. At that moment, she is developing M3GAN (Model 3 Generative Android); which is a humanoid robot doll, that is programmed by AI to partake in caretaking tasks, and, be a loyal companion to whoever it is assigned. After a faulty test run with M3GAN, its development of it is ultimately dropped. Because Gemma is a workaholic, she has little to no time to spend with Cady, which then leads her to continue developing M3GAN for Cady. As the M3GAN is introduced to Cady, she immediately promises to her that she will keep her safe; however, things may seem fine at first, but throughout the movie, things will take a rather dark turn.
