Critic Consensus: Octavia Spencer's performance overpowers many of Ma's flaws, but uneven pacing and a labored story keep this thriller from fully realizing its unhinged potential.

Critic Reviews for Ma
[Ma is] an antihero of the highest caliber...The catharsis was glorious.
The movie itself is fairly ordinary... [But] when [Octavia Spencer] goes bananas, she pulls the rip-cord. She has all kinds of fun.
Ma boasts an impressively against-type performance from Octavia Spencer but not much else that is either truly scary or emotionally engaging.
Unfortunately, with the campy script and the plot line ripped straight from Hulu's The Act-by the third act of Ma, the movie literally implodes in on itself leaving the audience wondering, wtf they just watched.
There's a good movie trapped somewhere in Tate Taylor's Ma. That's the frustrating part.
