Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘Morgan’ is about a corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara), a risk-management consultant, who is summoned to a remote, top-secret research lab 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. She must determine whether or not to terminate an at-risk artificial being’s life that was made in a laboratory environment.”

Morgan is a thoughtful, engaging, and unexpectedly humane little chiller. …Even though it eventually descends into… convention…
—Scott Mendelson, Forbes

…It loses its bite in the final stretch, but this is a sharp, smartly cast sci-fi thriller. …the suspense gives way to generic action…
—Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

…it’s little more than a schlock replay of “Ex Machina.” …Instead of developing its themes, it uses them as grist for an overload of “commercial” action. …overwrought and even ridiculous turns…
—Owen Gleiberman, Variety

…devoid of life… Why oh why was this pièce du poo-poo made? Why squander talent (Paul Giamatti as an unbelievably clueless shrink — seriously, it's not believable)… [2/5]
—Allen Salkin, New York Daily News

…My diagnosis of why “Morgan” malfunctions as a chilling plunge into blood-splattered mayhem is that, before the midway point, it is pretty obvious what the eventual outcome and supposed big reveal will be. …[2]
—Susan Wloszczyna, RogerEbert.com

…“Morgan” is maybe the most infuriating movie of the year, in which the supposedly advanced minds that have succeeded in creating a frighteningly realistic artificial being behave like petulant, stubborn children when things start to go wrong and commit such egregious blunders you’ll be tempted to throw your popcorn at the screen and bellow, “Come ON, you guys!”…
—Richard Roeper, Chicago sun-Time
