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..
When they talk about killing Morgan by lethal injection, they say 5 milliliters to sedate her, followed by 30 milliliters of lethal dose. But the sedation drug is halfway in a 1 milliliter syringe, and the blue lethal med is in a 25 milliliter syringe. The only way to inject 30 milliliters is to fill the next size syringe, a 50-milliliter one, to the 30 mL mark. Clearly, both syringes are wrong sizes. See more »
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!

Had the right ideas but lacked the right amount of spark
Before anyone reads this, I am glad to read that some movie goers found the movie great. However, this is just my personal take when I saw this film.
Without going into too much detail about what this film entails, I felt as though there were a few moments in the film which could have been better.
1/ The ending was slightly disappointing... and for those who do not understand why then I am sure it will become clear in the end. I just expected more.
2/ I felt as though more connection was needed between Morgan and the audience. I found the clips of her as a child sweet and warming. I even felt sympathy towards her after she had attacked her first and second victims. However, in the end I felt as though I lacked sympathy for her character, after she became more and more out of hand. This also ties into the first point to do with the ending. I was expecting to be moved, riveted. But instead I felt a mixture of "Really... after all that, that's how it ended?", along with a sense of the lack of what I felt was emotion.
3/ I wanted to understand more about why and how the members of staff loved her so much. OK, she was special - but why did they love her the way they did, even after it became clear that she was starting to become dangerous? Why didn't one of them even question themselves over how out of hand things were getting?
Just a couple of points. Apart from that, the film was good enough to hold the majority of my attention throughout and definitely had the potential to be very, very good indeed. Credit where it is due, the film's intentions did seem surprisingly in the right place, but certainly more spark... more depth was needed.
