GENRE: Thriller

WHAT I LIKE?

The reason why I watched Ma is OCTAVIA SPENCER. Acting-wise, Octavia delivered and saved the entire film the least.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

“Ma” put into waste an impressive performance from Octavia Spencer from a film that could have ventured a little bit darker and deeper. I found the plot to be shallow and very lackluster. The whole film felt like a lazy thriller that was hoping to benefit from enough creepy antics but sooner failed. Plot-wise, it was utterly predictable and unimaginative. They could have creatively played around how creepy and controlling “Ma” is but they gave us a lacking chops of thrillers that are either forgettable or funny at some point. I wish it could have been bloodier at least. So far, Ma is really a disappointing flick in terms of story material. Acting chops was average but I find some terrible acting here. How I wish they gave Octavia Spencer a more sensible if not a crazy enough plot. She deserves better than this.
