Goofs

There are numerous Buddi toys involved in the chaos in the toy store at the end of the film, after Chucky hacks into them. It's not clear what happens to them, as Andy and Karen are faced only with Chucky a few minutes later. However, since Chucky has finally cornered Andy, controlling the other toys may no longer seem necessary. See more »

A homage but fresh
27 June 2019 | by imasmf-144-537482See all my reviews

Saw the new Child's Play tonight. At first I was like naw, not gonna see it but then I decided to give it a chance. Glad I did, I liked it. It was able to keep the flavor and fun of the original but tell the story in a new way so you don't feel you're just watching a remake. You may actually feel bad for Chucky at times so that right there tells you it's a bit different.

At first I didn't like new Andy because he's older and seemed stupid to give an older kid a doll but the doll is evolved too, with tech that even older kids can find fun. The kid who plays Andy is good as are the other kids. Mom and the detective fit the roles nice and very different from the original characters which I think was smart. If they'd tried to just copy the originals it wouldn't have worked because we'd always compare them.

I don't want to give anything away but I'll just say thanks to the Kasden cloud storage I think we may see sequels, and I'm ok with that.
