Child's Play (2019) - an honest review of the film without spoilers

The first film of this popular horror series called "Children's Game" was released in 1988. According to the plot, a criminal named Charles Lee Ray infused his soul with the help of Voodoo magic into a large children's doll, which actually received the name Chucky. Armed with the largest table knife, Chucky began to finish those things that Charles Lee Ray himself did not manage to finish in his usual human life. In short, the audience was shown a “slasher” with a considerable admixture of black humor.

The angry doll was to the taste of lovers of the genre, and the studio began to shoot sequels in order to please the fans too, and to earn money for the audience's interest ...


Continued came out in 1990, 1991, 1998, 2004, 2013 and 2017. Since the series “The Bride of Chucky” (1998), Chucky has a girlfriend named Tiffany and a child named Glen / Glenda (this creature has long been determined by who he is!). Well, and in the film "Cult of Chucky" in 2017, there were several evil dolls in the hospital doing disgrace at once!

And now the next film of the glorious series, which received a simple and familiar name - "Children's Games". I watched it and am ready to express my honest opinion without different spoilers there - so read it safely if you haven’t managed to watch the movie yet, but are going to do it!

First of all, it’s worth saying that this time none other than actor Marche Hamill voiced Chucky’s doll. This is her career as an actor - yesterday you were a Jedi Master Luke Skywalker with a laser sword, and today you are a Chucky doll with a kitchen knife)))

The appearance of the Chucky doll has also undergone noticeable changes. I can’t say that these same changes I liked one hundred percent. As for me, Chuckie from old films looked more intimidating and stylish. And here some misunderstanding with a rubber face. But this, again, is solely my viewer's opinion!

Scenario. The problem of "Children's Games" like any popular horror cycle, I think, is that it is difficult to bring something new to the series without crossing out the past parts. And fans usually don’t forgive this. So you don’t need to wait for especially original plot moves in the new film!
What can I say about sound and music? I stubbornly don’t remember (although I’ve recently revised specifically) the music from the first films, so with all desire I won’t say whether it is used in the new "Children's Games". In any case, the musical line is absolutely not remembered ...

A few words about acting. Ladies and gentlemen - this is a "horror", not Shakespearean passions transferred to the big screen. No one expects to see something particularly high quality with regard to acting in the “slasher”. He does not expect, and in principle he will not see ...

Well, the main question - is it worth going to the "Children's Games" in the cinema? In my opinion - not worth it. There is nothing there to watch “only on the big screen with a cool sound” - a slasher, he is also a slasher in Africa. Look at the torrents in a couple of months in good quality ...
