Storyline

Morgan comes home after a tragic accident in a bikers race leaves him paraplegic, binding him to wheelchair use for the rest of his life. He tries to stay positive, not letting the accident end his life, but deep-rooted feelings of uselessness make him rather wish he were dead. Rolling out for beer, he meets Dean, and the two strike up a friendship that quickly develops into a romantic connection. Morgan wants to participate in the biking race in the handicap category, more so because of his competitive nature than to prove his ability. Everyone is against it, even Dean, leading to differences between the two. Finally, he realizes that he's at fault and makes peace with himself. Written by Ronnie / edited by statmanjeff

Below amateur dialogue & direction & acting ruin a good story.....
4 August 2013 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

'MORGAN' is a perfect case of when a writer should not be allowed to direct his own script. The set up of the movie was very very good, as was the scene set up. The first problem was that the director had a below amateur level script/dialogue to work with, along with an author who refused to edit or get help (same person) . Most of the actors were not only miscast, but were very very 'wanting' in their acting talents and abilities .... mind you, even great actors could not have done very much more with the stereotypical poor dialogue. Did no other actors/actresses show up for the casting call?

I would love to executive produce a re-make of this project, with a top notch writer and new experienced director attached.

If you are willing to squint and grimace at least four/five times during each scene, take the 90 minutes to watch it through and imagine what a pretty good movie might look like with a quality re-write and with a seasoned director.
