The film feels really slow throughout the entire first act and doesn't pick up speed until the last little bit.

It's worth the watch!

If you're bored at home one night and want to just check it ou,t go ahead.

Weird but entertaining .

Spencer tries her best to instill a sense of fear in the viewer, but the trite nature of the plot-hole ridden script, the pedestrian direction, and the plodding pace rob the film of any tension.

In the end, this movie really isn't worth a watch because the trailer spoils it and it's only worth watching for the last 10 to 15 minutes.

It's an entertaining thriller/comedy, not a horror movie you could not watch alone.

All of the other actors you could tell were trying their best with what they were given but it just ended up being really boring to watch.

It was very entertaining great acting creepy weird at times and just all-around a good time I really enjoyed MA!

This movie was a waste of time.

Dull concept attempting to bank in on media driven race bait propaganda.

It's a psychological thriller with horror elements and it's a little predictable.

The story is something that looks like it's out of the ordinary, but is actually closer than you could possibly think, which makes it a lot more compelling and intresting to watch from the side perspective.

Waste of money .

My friends and I agreed that the tale was realistic, which brought part of the fun experience, and in grounding it to the reality it made for a good villain that was engaging to watch.

Overall, it was something new and entertaining all the way until the end where it takes it up a notch.

I really enjoyed it.

Octavia Spencer is really good in it and it's entertaining throughout.

I sure hope they're better than this latest offering from producers Blumhouse: Ma is tired and predictable, stretches plausibility, and, worst of all, is not in the least bit scary.

All in all; I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Welcome to another Robbie Movie Reviews and today we take a look at:Movie: Ma (2019)Director: Tate Taylor Writer: Scotty Landes Stars: Octavia Spencer, Diana Silvers, Juliette LewisLIKES:Star power Good Acting Surprisingly Deep Story Realistic Good Villain DISLIKESNot Scary Predictable Suspense of The Reality Not Suspenseful Rushed EndingThose Who Like These May Like This Movie: Life Time Movies Greta ABC family originals like Pretty Little LiarsSUMMARY: Ma is surprising in many ways in terms of its story telling, focusing more on the characters than the actual scares.

Its an entertaining watch I'd say and its brainless fun, which ultimately is what it should be.

That small nitpick aside, the movie's main drop off for me was the lack of suspenseful finish and the rushed ending that came with it.

The movie starts off really slow, the first time we meet the main antagonist is a lot later than you would expect.

Predictable and you've already seen all the best parts.

The teens were sort of generic, and some not scary jump scares, but had suspenseful moments.

I found the film to be pretty good & suspenseful.

Enjoyable and little too many unanswered questions

Slow, but thrilling .

Good: No doubt, Octavia Spencer carries the film and without her, the film would have easily crumbled and been unwatchable.

Definitely enjoyed it.

It was entertaining and did have some strange twists.
