M3GAN ★★★½

"She doesn't look confused, she looks demented!"

"The moment we kicked Hasbro right in the dick!"

Overall this was good, not great.

What was good:
-- A couple of fight scenes were intense, fun, and creepy.
-- Overall look, design features, and eerie presence of M3GAN.
-- Overall, very entertaining.

What was bad:
-- The replacement theory of technology taking the place of the family unit was a little heavy-handed. It may be true, but was spoon-feeding it in a way that got redundant. The entire movie is a metaphor. Replace Megan with a cell phone. We get it.
-- Jump scares, done a million times, nothing new or inventive.
-- Generic dialog that forces a humorous response
-- Clunky first act desperate to find a way to get the movie/storytelling in motion.
-- A childs stupid suggestion leads to an equally stupid segue cliche
