While we are a bit late to the party, we did get a chance to take in the new ‘Child’s Play’, which dropped on June 21st.
The concept of a modern Buddi doll is brilliant. A walking, interactive, and intelligent AI that can control multiple things in your home, and can help in life, gives a very strong, fresh spin on the tale.
Now, the film starts off by rushing and bumbling it’s way to the reason why Chucky is cursed, and while it’s nice that it didn’t involve any curses, it still fell very flat and seemed rather brushed aside, a big flaw.
Something a bit more detailed, and with some substance to make me care about the process would have benefited this movie in the long-run.
Despite the bumpy start, the rest of the movie plays out smoothly, and although it isn’t anything to write home about, aside from the strong concept, it checks enough boxes to earn a decent rating, basically due to Hamill’s performance, which worked so well.
I just wish there was a bit more meat on the bone.
