The over all movie was really good, but the ending felt rushed.

The movie left soo much on the table. Should have done better connecting what happened in Ma's high school days with the present.

I really was hoping to love this movie. I knew it could go either way. Octavia Spencer was good in her role but she could only do what the script called for. Thing that were supposed to be terrifying actually had me laughing...out loud...literally. It was entertaining. Maybe if they chose to promote comically terrifying then the expectations would be lower; knowing the funny moments were actually intentional.

Movie was just underwhelming to say the least. Had such high hopes for the movie but just fell flat. Pacing was slow. Had a few funny moments. Nothing worth rewatching.

Octavia Spencer played her role well! never seen her like this before. definitely psycho and funny. hard to believe this kids did what they did just to party with booze. my girlfriend's and I enjoyed this flix, it'll make you laugh, curse, jump out your seat, wanting to jump into the screen and beat the s**t outta them kids, well, you get the idea. Go see it.

The movie itself was okay. Not too fond of the ending or flow of the storyline.

This could've been so much better. The lady that plays Ma is such a good a actress but this movie sucked.

Octavia Spencer is what drew me to this movie. I've never seen her play a role like this so I went in knowing I'd be chuckling. It was entertaining, I just wish the background story would've been more developed.

It's not anything that was so great you have to see it in the theatre. Direct to DVD or Redbox would be a better home for this film.

It was "ok"-I feel that they rushed the end-there was some stuff that could have been left out in order to have a better flow...

It wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. The trailer for it, when showing the scary parts, was only from a tiny bit of the movie. I was kinda of disappointed :/ although the cast was good and the story line was a little interesting, but I wouldn’t watch it again

Between the exhilaration of great movies and the disappointment of bad ones lie the particular pleasures of trash. Ma isn’t a bad movie, and it’s sure as hell not trying to be a good one, but it scratches a particular itch that neither noble failures nor cranked-out hackwork can touch.

It quickly spins its shaky premise off into an unconvincing study of emotional need and an even harder-to-believe revenge thriller.

The script takes forever to get started, and once it’s going, labours to create a single plausible character. Nor can Taylor, who last handled the dreary The Girl On The Train, wring any suspense from his scenes.
