"M3GAN" Warns That You Can Never Trust AI

Updated: Feb 5

A realistic form of artificial intelligence, M3GAN is a lifelike doll that was created to be both a parent's and child's best friend. M3GAN, created by Gemma, a clever roboticist, can monitor, listen, and learn as it serves as a friend, a teacher, a playmate, and a guardian. When Gemma finds herself suddenly in charge of Cady, her 8-year-old niece, she makes the decision to give the girl a M3GAN prototype.


I anticipated that the film would be fairly spooky, like "Chucky," where a robot that has taken over the city wreaks havoc and attempts to seize control of the government. However, it was largely similar to earlier AI films, such as "Robot turned on Master," in which robots develop a conscience, become self-aware, and seek to improve their code.


In "M3GAN", the robot takes her orders to protect the 8-year-old seriously, which has severe consequences for everyone around Cady.


Although this new movie felt somewhat cheesy, I thought it was a good experience and would recommend it. It has dramatic and spooky themes, as well as humorous and light ones, and is ideal for watching with your more mature family members.
