child's play 3 movie review - Aussieboyreviews


It may lack the terror, but Child’s Play 3 is bloody, fascinating and very different than the first two Chucky films. This horror sequel is best for teenagers and adults.

Aussie boy's thoughts

It may not be a necessary instalment to the satisfactory series, but Child’s Play 3 fascinatingly deals with the pressure under the military academy. Fans will very likely feel dissatisfied with that element, understandably because it’s the entire setting and feature. Chucky runs around the place, bloodily murdering people as he searches for the child-now-teenager who defeated him.

It’s alike the previous films when it comes to the victims vs. Chucky, but the military school makes it very, very different, surprisingly in an interesting way. It generally keeps you distracted, especially when Chucky approaches the scenes. Releasing 3 years after the original film, the work around creating memorable Child’s Play moments is better designed, too.

Fans will absolutely hate the lack of the original’s charm; Andy as an unsure child increased the intelligence. The performances in the previous instalments also weren’t really great, but they’re worse in Child’s Play 3. You’ll receive a tiny amount of the ability to reserve some of your care for the lead character, but there’s nothing about this Chucky film that overtakes the plot.
