I thought the movie was okay at best. A couple of things about the film just really put me off, such as...

Spoiler Below
the hospital monitor having 'MAMA' typed all over the screen and the overdone CGI extravaganza at the end. Main problem was Mama wasn't scary in the slightest.


A disappointing film, but still worth one watch I suppose. The two leads (the uncle and his girlfriend) gave solid performances.

I agree. Thought the CGI was pretty good, a bit excessive in the final scene but I thought it was a great way to end the movie. Certainly an unexpected way.

Unexpected to who? The ending was complete nonsense.
Spoiler Below

Her spirit lingers because of her lost child and once they are finally reunited she tosses it away like a bag of old moldy tangerines.

A film with a lot of potential that's ultimately squandered by typical problems of American studio productions; Misuse of CG, over-editing and characters shoved in that serve little purpose other than to over explain the situation to the audience. Unfortunate, because outside of those major issues this film could have been pretty solid. Oh well.

I'm not certain this helps your disappointment, but your comment did bring a smile to my face.

I haven't seen it yet, but the comments have me a bit worried.

Too much CGI kinda ruined it for it, and the fact that MAMA wasn't even scary.

Although I get the ending
Spoiler Below
The girl had been raised in the woods... she wouldn't have been abe to live a normal life in the real world. It was the only thing for her to do. The older sister had enough time with her parents to retain enough to survive.

Also a little more back story on why the dad went nuts to begin with would have been helpful for the story line.
