I didn't think this would be a good remake. But I enjoyed it for what it was! Not a bad watch in my opinion! The cast is solid and it has a dark comedy tone to it.

A new and improved Chucky doll with AI enhancements. What could go wrong? There's humor as the doll goes full on psycho but you'd expect that from a Chucky movie. A mom who gets her son a weird doll has some parenting issues.

I went into this one thinking it would probably suck but I was surprised by how OK it was. Some parts get a little silly but Chucky is definitely still creepy as heck. This one was a fun horror flick that wasn't too scary.

Surprisingly awesome movie! I think I’m one of the only people who will say this but personally I like remakes better than the original (Child’s Play, Halloween, It, etc). Great acting, most of the characters were likeable, could even feel for Chucky unlike the original. I liked watching the progression of the characters. Definitely interesting, more realistic to the time we’re in now. Reminded me of Terminator. Overall awesome movie!

I thought it was good to except the mom she put her boyfriend ahead of her son. She gave bad parenting, and bad taste in men.

Entertaining enough. I did like the twist on the Child’s Play mythos, and made it relevant to the modern era.

I thought it was good even though I like the original better it was still pretty entertaining and great voice acting from Mark Hamill he did very well playing the voice of Chucky I think Brad Dourif who is the original voice of chucky would be impressed with his performance. I'm sure Mr. Hamill had big shoes to fill playing the voice of this doll but again he did awesome.

Good premise but, the movie was flat with bad acting. Hope this is the last of the Child's Play Franchise. These last couple of movies have been Bad! Bad! Bad!

This was a fun remake of the original. The original dealt with the occult and reincarnation. This version is definitely a social commentary on our society in the 21st century via dark humor. "This is for Tupac" and the scene where Chucky observes Pug's enjoyment and laughter for the chainsaw massacre movie makes Chucky think that's what humans do. Chucky is a small AI that learns from observing. It is possible to create a sentient AI and that's the real horror this is a fun movie to watch for those who are not into too many jump scares but still appreciate an 80s style slasher movie with corny jokes. The kids are the real stars and are a reflection of our society today. Kaslan is like Google and other conglomerates of our era.
