So I have not (and nor do I really intend to) see M3GAN, but when it comes to these robots-gone-awry movies I have two questions:

1) Why do they give these robots powerful enough motors to do such superhuman feats?
2) Why don't these robots ever run out of energy? Seems like you should just be able to EMP them and/or just keep them away from a charging port until they run out.

Or is this just movie-writers, as generally is the case, just being ignorant of or intentionally ignoring basic physics and engineering realities?

Production companies wanting to profit from an unpleasant premise in an horror movie and also probably merchandising following it.

It gets worse, big part of the Megan movie was the evil(?) corp wanting to mass produce the thing, somehow sourcing presumably cutting edge materials and electronics within a year and selling it for some 10 20 thousand bucks.

They actually do attempt to electrocute her, presumably horror movie tropes prevent that from just working.

Honestly the biggest thing I remember, the lead woman had a bookshelf of collectible toys or whatever in her house, you can see one of the WETA replica Righteous Bison laser pistols like in TF2.

Does this mean Mann vs Machine is canon in that universe?

Actually, Weta did sell life size movie prop Grodbort guns for a pretty penny.  It's been years so I dunno if they still do.

But yes, MvM is canon.

In this particular case the boring, killjoy answer is the correct one: It's just a movie and more realistic elements of engineering take a back seat to making the robot monster a threat to our main characters. I only saw the movie once about a month ago, maybe longer, but I seem to recall the robot recharging at one point but being said to have a decently-sized power supply that would have been enough to carry her through her relatively short murder spree. As for question of EMPing the robot, I've never done such a thing myself so I don't know how easy that is to accomplish, but I don't think anyone who was attacked in the film was in a ready state to do so.

Movie style EMP's aren't actually something a regular person just has lying around, or could make in their garage without a ton of time, effort, and money to spend.

I'm fairly sure its theoretically *possible*, but it would probably be easier and cheaper to buy a literal rocket launcher.

A household microwave and some sheet metal (say, from the side of a washing machine) can be made into a directed microwave emitter which will short out most machines. It has a very limited range (two meters max), and must be plugged into a wall.

Not very practical, but keep it in mind if the robodogs ever come knocking.

Since the robot in question is for a civilian market couldn't you just shoot it or run it over and kill it that way?
