Morgan

Kate Mara (The Martian) leads this sci-fi mystery about a brilliant-yet-dangerous artificial being whose life is left in the hands of a risk-management consultant. Produced by Ridley Scott.

First time filmmaker Luke Scott says, "What Morgan really alludes to is human beings becoming, in a sense, the creator. Not in a traditional religious sense, but an idea that we have the capabilities to become our own creator. And what I suspect could happen - we've seen it in all these movies, whether it's Frankenstein or Metropolis - it's the creation of a being that is greater than the creator."

Even if his film's plot is predictable, the younger Scott is returning the ensemble thriller to its roots with something far more important than an airtight story: compelling, well-drawn characters and the talented actors to play them.

Instead of developing its themes, it uses them as grist for an overload of "commercial" action.

Mr. Scott creates a disappointingly skeletal Frankenstein story that entertains efficiently but vacuously.

A dull, listless, derivative chunk of celluloid lacking any spark or even basic storytelling ability.

You may start to wonder when the last time an ensemble this good was placed in service of a script this thin.

Until its letdown of a final stretch, Morgan is a gripping group portrait of menace and vulnerability, each punch to the solar plexus a burning question, timeless and of the moment.

It's well designed and shot, but in service of a story that never coalesces into something intelligent or compelling.
