You knew he had a history, and his interactions with other characters he met, was entertaining.

The film seemed too rushed, the characters were flat, and the plot was a mess and felt empty.

Overall, it's a fun, compelling and thematically complete experience that may just be the best remake of recent years.

Finally a child's play movie worth watching .

Enjoyable movie from start to end, perfect for slasher-horror fans out there.

Save your money or go see something worth the money you work hard for, because this sure wasn't it.

I should give the disclaimer that I have a condition that restricts from enjoying almost any B-movie of this kind, because I simply cannot get over the fact that every character is cliched, one-note or completely uninteresting.

I enjoyed it for what it was.

Psychotic dolls possessed by a serial killer's spirit is much creepier and more entertaining.

Yes, it's actually that confusing with the cops mother dying.

Waste of any Chucky fans time .

I found the first half-hour very intriguing.

While the writers took a new turn from the source material, it's still incredibly entertaining.

Intense, at times.

Boring .

This makes for an intriguing and entertaining story.

Don't expect something really deep and meaningful, it's just a fun horror movie that is truely entertaining

Worst movie I've seen all year.

However, while this is a good overall entertaining movie, it doesn't even compare to the original.

Enjoyable slasher .

It was funny, had a great story line, enjoyable characters AND gave a modern twist to Chucky.

After a very intriguing new origin intro the film takes us to a familiar plot set up with Andy and his Mother getting a hold of the buddi doll.

He's unpredictable, and I like that it's partially Andy's fault in this; being a modern day kid, this Andy is way less innocent than the 1988 Andy.

And the crummy boyfriend's dialogue was so bad I chuckledOverall I felt the movie was boring.

Enjoyable Movie, Give It A go.

Worth it, enjoyable solid reboot .

For people who are not interested in the Chucky film series, this new film can come across as entertaining.

I honestly think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how witty and enjoyable this movie is, and you might just find yourself feeling a touch sorry for Chucky in certain parts of the movie too, despite him being a notorious killer.

It was boring.

And the 15 minute climax was suspenseful, unruly, and well crafted.

The ending was definitely better and more suspenseful in the original as well.

Stunning work guys.

This was the only, and most logical, route to go down and shockingly it made for an enjoyable slasher.

AI is too bland.

Gripping & Gory .

I didn't think this remake was gonna be any good at all but I was pleasently surprised, plenty of gore and plenty of 90,s type slashering, slowly builded the new modernised chucky to a fun but predictable ending.

You're better off rewatching the original with the mom from 7th heave; save your money and time, don't go see this movie.

The first act felt like i was watching the film in fast forward which is quite jarring in comparison to the slow burn of the original.

Great summer slasher and worth the watch as me and my friends laughed and enjoyed it together, and I went twice with two different groups of friends!...

Bateman's Andy is an interesting and relatable character, with compelling struggles and flaws, while the original Andy was just a cute kid.

And that's what movies are for, entertaining the viewer and this movie does that.

An enjoyable remake that fits nicely in the contemporary era .

There is a couple in theater I was at who had walked out due to the gruesome nature of this film...

It is both formulaic and disappointing when compared to the ferocious, psychotic personality of the original.

Don't waste your time

Mark Hamill delivers an enjoyable voice performance.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Very predictable!

he's uncharismatic, he's uninteresting outside of tech aspects and ultimately you can kill him incredibly easily.

Dont waste your money .

The movie limps along in a very predicatble and boring way.

Andy and his friends are very enjoyable characters.

Oh, I will say there is a scene involving a wrapped up "watermelon" that had me on the edge of my seat, as if it was Christmas.

It's pacy, well-written and entertaining.

Also, while the overused cliche of the "son up against the mom's boyfriend" is used to create a central conflict, I wish it were fleshed out more .

An enjoyable tale, more humour than horror, I don't recall once being nervous or the slightest bit tense.

Child's Play is pure entertaining fun for the horror fan.

The ending was predictable SHOCK Chucky has morphed into another doll or was he using other dolls all along?

Genuinely entertaining and unexpectedly better than the average remake =)

Chucky, now immersed in this environment, is a product of its external factors.

Saying this Child's Play 2019 is fun, gory, fast paced and extremely tongue in cheek.

This 2019 version of Child's Play, was way to predictable.

Highly recommend it!

Overall, this was an enjoyable movie even though it had some flaws.

The movies that came after it all declined in quality, but have all been entertaining.

Some of the scenes were cliche and overall it wasn't for me.

A bit rushed, but quite enjoyable .

Don't waste your money.

However most of the other characters are bland, like Andy's friends.

A solid and entertaining remake, with some fresh differences to keep it from being an exact copy.

Don't waste your money seeing this one in theaters, just wait for it in RedBox unless you love mundane "horror" flicks.

Sounds exciting.

The Kaslan Corporation has just launched Buddi: a high-tech doll which can connect to the Cloud, control the internet of things in your house, become your digital assistant and it can also also imprint on a child, becoming their BFF, entertaining them, even tutoring them.

This movie was very entertaining and, dare I say, better than the original.

First off its predictable.

Save your money.

It's definitely different and nothing like the originals, but that's what makes it cool, intriguing, fun, and interesting.

However, there are some moments of almost 'splat-stick' comedy that don't quite land - though, they make provoke a bemused chuckle - and it adheres to quite a few tropes, a couple of which are somewhat tiresome (if at home).

Hilarious and entertaining .

OG Chucky is near and dear to my heart but this was still a very entertaining movie!

Overall it was a very enjoyable movie that flew by too fast.

Boring from start to finish.

There are scenes that were suspenseful and the kills were pretty imaginative my favorite one being when Chucky makes mince meat out of Karen's boyfriend (who had a family already mind you) with a lawnmower, and then wraps his head around a watermelon and gives it to Andy as a present.

The story is engaging, the characters are realistic, and the pacing is just right.

Wildly Entertaining.

All hell breaks loose, and Andy has to save his mother etc etc.Overall, I enjoyed it.

Predictable story, horrible attempts to be funny which just fell flat, some awkward acting, absolutely cringe inducing scary moments, a plain weird looking doll with 0 scary aspects.

The end of the film is very intense.

Plot points either follow a formula set by these kind of movies (yawn), or they are so fundamentally flawed that it takes you out of it.

Might be ok for a the new generation but if your an old school Chucky fan just watch it on DVD and save your money you won't enjoy it.

There is no plot here and poor Andy has practically no role models.

However it falls short in areas, probably due to run time issues, meaning unfortunately some characters don't get enough screen time or investment but never the less for what it is, it's an enjoyable movie.

I was kind of nervous about this one but when I saw I completely forgot that I ever was this was fun exciting and shocking!

An enjoyable slasher .

The movie starts out good and gets really intense at some points.

Unfortunately, It was very predictable and not as scary as i would have hoped.

And so is the movie, boring from the start to the end.

A waste of time dont ever watch it, the story is stupid

The story I found very intriguing and definitely brought the chucky character to modern day perfectly.

I believe the biggest things that made this movie so enjoyable was that they modernized it, did not keep solely to the original script, and lots of killings that was believable and in Chucky's realm of killing.

Does it a good job entertaining you as a viewer?

The second and third half thankfully are better paced and definitely get more entertaining with the kills that are pretty fun and gory.

As things progress with this updated technologically focused story, things start getting intense and downright brutal.

If you need something to sit down with and kill a few hours of your time with, this is pretty entertaining.

The characters are all flat, the story is not entertaining or engaging, the jump scares are really basic and so predictable and the direction has no personality.

It's enjoyable and a new creative take on Chucky!

This movie was so good that I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end!

Without delving into the story too much, and running the "spoiler alert" risk, what I will say is this movie is smart, clever and really engrossing from start to finish, which will please most horror fans with gory deaths popping up in a timely fashion.

This movie was actually entertaining.

I left the theater only disappointed that there was not more time to develop the characters and the plot.

When the finale hits it's just so incredibly extravagant and violent and it's thoroughly intense.

Worth the watch.

Save your money and time.

The premise is great, and it's creepy, suspenseful and sad.

It's scary, creepy, suspenseful and funny on purpose.

A too predictable horror (with comedy).

Thrilling, edge of the seat suspense, great story, great acting and Mark Hammill (Luke Skywalker) as the voice of Chucky is genuinely scary!

Another bad remake Don't waste your time .

he also was responsible for making the nearly unwatchable sequels.

Save your money.

The original is one of my favourite movies of all time and a cult classic, this was barely entertaining to say the least.

But I was surprised at how entertaining this was.

Mark Hamill as the voice of Buddi Chucky did a phenomenal job, there's inventive and gory brutal kills, dark humor (of course) , some truly suspenseful scenes and even some really cute endearing moments between Andy and Chucky...

Worst movie ever .

So here lies the premise which is FAR more compelling than some "voodoo" idea of a soul of a convicted killer transferring itself into a doll.

Sadly, most of the actors don't seem quite interested in the movie, with many again presenting uninteresting characters that just do little for me.

Unnecessary remake but was still enjoyable .

Only people without reference of the original story, that like predictable jump scares, would enjoy this film.

The bond that Mark Hamill's Chucky had with Gabriel Bateman's 'Andy' was so Wholesome and I just found It very intriguing and likeable.

But this movie was great and entertaining!

The reason why the original Child's play is a good slasher horror or at least an entertaining one it's Chucky itself, he's fun, extremely charismatic and damn evil while the new Chucky version is just boring, he has no charisma at all, he's predictable and ugly (so damn ugly!

The mother from the 1988 version was much more compelling.

And the climax is so crazy I was on the edge of my seat.

Don't waste your time with this and just go watch the original Child's Play, a classic.

The first and last ten minutes should've been tidier, but t'was an enjoyable time nonetheless.

Waste of money this movie and it's why I refuse anymore to pay to go to the cinema cos of these low rent directors and low rent writers and this never ending parade of appalling actors and actresses lately.

Another Pointless Horror Movie .

Entertaining and well put together film .

It is entertaining, and it keeps you gripped throughout.

Plenty of gore and certainly nor for the squeamish,also the pacing is a bit off at times but director Lars Klevberg has delivered an enjoyable horror film with elements of humour and satire.

Over the top, immaculate kills are part of that nostalgic campiness, but at times they are a little dragged out in the torture department, leading to cringe worth moments of disturbing death.

I definitely recommend this movie, it's not a masterpiece of filmmaking, but it is an enjoyable horror film that you'll probably have fun with.

I will admit, I rolled my eyes and gritted my teeth at the talk of a new entry in the Childs Play series, considering the long drawn out titles that have descended as the years went on.

The result is a surprisingly entertaining, gory delight.

you should probably leave the theater.

Child's Play is a fun and entertaining horror movie that blends the elements of horror and a little bit of comedy very well together.

But the movie was such a joke that the kids enjoyed it, non cried out once, some even sang along to Buddies creepy song.

The performances were dull and just going through the motions.

This was a very enjoyable movie.

Every other performance feels forced and bland.

This movie isn't your typical chucky movie obviously, but this movie is actually enjoyable.
