Storyline

Lee Weathers is a "risk-management specialist" for genetic-engineering company SynSect. She arrives at a rural site hosting its L-9 project, an artificial being with nanotechnology-infused synthetic DNA named Morgan. The "hybrid biological organism with the capacity for autonomous decision making and sophisticated emotional responses" is smarter than humans and matures quickly, walking and talking within a month and physically a teenager despite being five years old..

Goofs

Of Morgan: "She likes different kinds of music. Jazz, classical. She's been quite taken with opera of late."

(woman singing) The piece is Handel's largo, which is written as opera but nobody would refer to it as a taste for opera, any more than Handel's Messiah. Baroque would be the category. It's a different audience entirely. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. Kathy Grieff: [enters the holding cell] Hi, darling. It's me. I thought we'd have lunch together today. Oh, angel, you look sad. You know, it's a very, very natural thing. It's actually a very human thing to feel sad. But emotions aren't bad.
Dr. Kathy Grieff: I'm sorry, baby. I'm still trying to get them to change their mind and let you out for a little bit.
Dr. Kathy Grieff: [Morgan suddenly lunges at her and begins stabbing her] No! Get off! No! Oh, god!

I Was Skeptical at first but...
6 July 2017 | by sevenseven7See all my reviews

very intrigued by what I watched in this film.I felt the momentum build-up to the very end of the movie...........then BANG! What a climatic ending to Morgan. It was definitely NOT what I was expecting to see towards the ending of this movie.I have to admit I really did not expect too much out of what I was gonna watch and with all those who gave this film bad reviews of what I read before borrowing this movie to watch.
