Old school was better I gotta say. However with that being said I think it could be to the new generation what the OG Child’s Play was to us born in the 80s. I don’t think that anyone can do Chucky like Brad Dourif did but Mark Hamill definitely did not do a bad job. Actually, him doing such a great job as the animated version of The Joker is the only reason I decided to give it a chance. Rest of the cast was good as well.

It was very good, but not great. Mark Hamill does excellent voice work without treading into Joker territory. The film has several creepy and gory moments. However, the movie shouldn't have a third act. The story would have been over if Andy acted like someone with a lick of sense. There were at least two times that Andy could have stopped Chucky long before the robot's rampage, but he didn't even go for the off switch. Why must so many horror films have dumb protagonists?

It is a modern day take on Child's Play and although that isn't an excuse for some of the problems with the film, I think it's a serviceable film and it's worth watching. 😛

I would of rather wait for it on dvd. Nothing like the originals. Granted yes some parts made you jump and were gory it’s just his voice and look wasn’t there. Original chucky voice and doll was scarier. Original Chucky: Guy puts his sole into doll and goes on a killing spree 2019 chucky: Doll was hacked and learned how to kill. Was pretty boring and took forever just to get good.

I went in with a lot of low expectations since I am a huge fan of chucky. But i can honestly say that this did give chucky a new light and mark hamill did very well. I wouldent say that I stayed up all night from it but there was scenes that did creep me out and some things that were kinda funny, I wouldent expect chucky funny but there was scenes that were funny. but it is strange to feel bad for a doll other then A.I. of course .

So firstly, this is NOT the original Child’s Play, so if you’re going on expecting Charles Lee Ray and voodoo you’re gonna be disappointed. Secondly, the original CP wasn’t the greatest film during its fine so I wasn’t expecting to be terrified or anything going in. With that being said, the movie was a good bit of fun! There were comic relief moments within the film and I really liked the montage that built up the bond between Andy and Chucky. However, the pacing of it is rushed and I couldn’t get past the AWFUL design of the Buddi doll itself; his head is HUGE and it looks like it’s not on the right size body. I could find a better designed doll at Walmart, which is sad considering the doll is supposed to be manufactured by a multi-million dollar company. There were a few things here and there that weren’t expanded upon, and the ending (no spoilers) left me trying to figure out how Chucky managed that final twist. Overall, I had fun with it, but I’m glad I saw it at $6 matinee price.

The movie was okay. The acting wasn’t the best but the kills were surely bloody and you can tell they took advantage of the r rating for blood. But other than that, the movie was only really a little entertaining.

Definitely not worth the ticket price and no where near as good as the original film. It's definitely creepy and bloody for those that like slasher films, but this definitely isn't a must see film.

I think this was a good original reboot to the original Child's Play. Not like Psycho or other horror reboot bombs that copy scene for scene from the original and lack anything new. The kills were good, and had some nice gore, but I wanted more kills I guess from a horror movie. Adapting the story to our reliance on technology is felt. and I like they leave it open for a sequel. I think people bashing it aren't giving its due diligence or even seen it.

this was not the child's play of old. It's new and definitely different from the original. So if you saw the original forget everything you remember from it. This movie goes in a slightly different direction. If you are expecting some funny one liners from Chucky then you'll be disappointed , however despite that, the movie was actually pretty interesting.

It was a nice attempt at rebooting the originals. However it falls very short of all of the previous child play/Chuckie movies... I thought it was clever the way they modernize the doll but still feel the original doll was much more realistic. However I do find the storyline of this doll learning to become a killer vs the old version where the killer possesses the doll. Other than that I could have lived without seeing this film.

Chucky was funny and creepy at the same time. The writers did a good job of getting you to cheer for Chucky and empathize with him.

I actually felt bad for Chucky. He was picking up bad behavior from the kids and TV. The kids were teaching Chucky how to be mean and creepy. Why was everyone surprised that the doll was killing? I love the original Child’s Play

if youre a fan of the original then you have to watch this. The whole toy story feel to the movie makes this even creepier. I never put Andy and Andy from both movies together until now. Mark Hamil, the voice of Chuckie did outstanding work and I honestly want to rewatch it just to hear Chucky speak.

I used to like Chucky as a kid, but as an adult, in my opinion, I didn't like him that much. This reboot of "Child's Play" is kind of corny and boring. It was all right, but a disappointment. So it's a close call, but thumbs down for me. Child's Play (2019) 2/4 👎👎

I love the old child’s play movies. This is a reboot, but surprisingly I don’t have any issue with it like I thought I might. My husband found it to be a very uncomfortable movie, so if you aren’t a big fan of the originals or saw level gore you should probably skip it. Good movie reboot overall though.

Was a decent film and a lit of potential. Loved the cast a great deal, from Andy, the mom, the cop(Atlanta), and of course Mark Hamill

A lot of people are complaining about it being different and they wish it had voodoo. But remember during a reboot you can't use the same things done before especially with child's play, it could get them "sued" by the original makers of chucky, so I'm happy with the Reboot and I had fun watching it and it was a bloody good time.

This is what a remake should look like. The movie was funny and this Child's Play was definitely it's own thing. There is some great gore and kills but it is not over the top. The acting was great and there were not too many stupid horror movie decisions.

Stem to stern, this 88-minute slasher runs like the clockwork bit of machinery it is, and that baseline competence effectively leeches it of personality.

The problem is that those pulling Child's Play's strings don't consistently commit to anything other than the gore.

The movie’s biggest strength is its balance between mordant humor and psychological fear.
