Risk management consultant Lee Weathers (Kate Mara) has been hired to evaluate by an unnamed but slightly sinister company to evaluate and possibly terminate the L-9 project. This takes her to the middle of nowhere, where outside are beautiful woods and cold, sterile concrete rooms are underground.
Morgan is a dreary and surprisingly flat movie. The story arc is predictable, and the characters are all one-dimensional; even the appearance of Paul Giamatti as a dour psychiatrist doesn't add much to the movie. There aren't many scares or thoughtful scenes, and the images of the free person and imprisoned person reflected in the glass dividing them gets overdone quickly. Morgan tries to be suspenseful but is actually boring.
