I am admittedly not the biggest fan of the CHILD’S PLAY franchise mainly because I never found Chucky all that scary. Where exactly is the threat from a stuffed doll with no super-strength or magic powers? It is basically like being scared of a toddler with a degenerative bone disease as far as I am concerned. Sure the doll itself is incredibly creepy looking (gingers have no souls!!!!) and Brad Dourif has always done a great job voicing the character (so it is fortunate that he returns for this new movie) but I always thought this movie should have lasted 20 minutes. The first time Chucky got out of line you just rip his limbs off and toss the little bastard into a fire.
But hey this movie features A Martinez as a man of the cloth who I am sure gets killed in some horribly campy way so it has that going for it and seems to totally dismiss every movie in the franchise after the third one which can only be a good thing because this already ridiculous concept took a flying leap into the land of utter nonsense with Chucky getting hitched and having kids and whatnot.
