“Child’s Play” (2019) Review

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”25444″ img_size=”800×500″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Child’s Play (2019)

Synopsis: A mother gives her 13-year-old son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.

The original “Child’s Play” movie is considered a classic, along with the lack-lustered sequels. Personally I never thought any other Chucky movie was as worthy as the original. And I am happy to say this is a worthy entry into the series. Yes, this film is a complete reboot. I would not call this a remake because the ending has a huge pointer towards a sequel (That I support).[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”25442″ img_size=”590×350″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]First things first, whats the good? Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky was magnificent, he is such a talented voice actor and it really shows in this movie, with him being so eerie and unsettling. I really enjoyed the change to the creation of Chucky as in he is just an AI that does not have any programming which allows him to be violent and curse. They also have good character relationships between Andy and his mom, Andy and the detective and in this film they give Andy this type of friends group that were funny. A few other things are this movie is pretty damn funny which I was not expecting, along with how this movie uses lighting and color. This movie has some pretty cool kills and really good practical effects.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”25443″ img_size=”633×355″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]This movie is not without its faults. One thing that made this movie fall a bit is the thing that is good and makes it different from the original is that he is engineered to be bad and when he talks it sounds like a robot and not like it is a living spirit type figure and it makes his appearance less threatening than the original one, so it lessens the tension for me. The VFX is a bit rough when they are not using the physical doll in shots and it look wanky and very noticeable.

The movies runtime is around an hour and thirty minutes with end credit scene, so this movie about an hour twenty minutes and they could have really went more in depth about what happened with Andy’s father.

If you are a fan of the Chucky franchise I totally recommend this movie and give it a solid 6/10. This movie is pretty enjoyable and I would say is right behind the original in the ranking of all the movies.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeHNLikDiVw” align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
