Andrei Girard’s review published on Letterboxd:
When I first watched the trailer for this film, I felt that the film was going to be fucking awful, but now that I've watched the whole thing, I'm pleased to say that I had a lot of fun with this at the cinema. I wouldn't say it is a must-watch in cinemas, but it was nice to laugh along with the rest of the audience. Needless to say, don't expect a scary film or anything profound. It is a simple film, it is what it is. It delivers exactly what it promises, nothing more. Once you're in, it's easy to guess how everything will play out, there are no surprises. M3GAN works better as a comedy because of how silly it gets as it progresses, although it has some moments of pure tension as well. It manages to create laughs in such an organic way that it feels so effortless, whilst at the same it intrigues with its sci-fi ideas. It's got humour and a couple of chills. In a way, M3GAN becomes a real character on screen; a character who never ceases to amuse, and one that is surely going to become an icon. This film offers a lot of campy fun. M3GAN is entertaining from beginning to end, witty and even thought-provoking at times. I can't say I did not enjoy the film, but I have a huge problem with it. Let's be honest, M3GAN is basically a rehash of Child's Play of 2019. No matter how entertaining the film is, it's impossible for me to love a film this lacking in originality. I hope to see an improvement in the sequel because I'm 100% sure there's going to be a sequel.
