A dangerous child

It has been compared to Ex-Machina but it is closer in narrative to the movie 'Hanna". A young child is bred to become a dangerous weapon but they want to give her (it) enough of a moral grounding to control her. So, is Morgan really to blame for the violence she performs?

OK movie, suitable for younger audiences, but very predictable.

The movie itself did not deserve its R rating AT ALL. PG-13 would have sat fine with me, but definitely not R. It was very bland as far as mature subject matter goes. The violence was at a minimum for an R rated movie, then everything else... Pretty PG. the story was exceptional, but how they tied everything together and planned it out, was pretty subpar. They could have made it so much for interesting, but instead they made a sugar-coated version of 'Ex Machina'. The youngest a child could be to see this and understand and enjoy it, would be about 10. Anyone under that age could view it, but probably get bored of it. • Language- 1/5 Violence- 2/5 Sexual content and Nudity- 1/5 Drugs and Alcohol- 2/5
