Annihilation

Natalie Portman is a biologist who signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply. From writer-director Alex Garland (Ex Machina).

Lena, a biologist and former soldier, joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X - a sinister and mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline. Once inside, the expedition discovers a world of mutated landscape and creatures, as dangerous as it is beautiful, that threatens both their lives and their sanity.

For those willing to put in the effort, "Annihilation" achieves that rare feat of great genre cinema, where we are not merely thrilled ... but also feel as if our minds have been expanded ...

Garland's creeping pace lulls you on an almost molecular level; he's made something akin to an end-of-the-world film, but one in which the changes afoot might not be wholly bad, title be damned.

Mr. Garland has a talent for unnerving you with quietly dissonant notes and an occasional grotesque flourish.

Annihilation is more than mere visuals and it will shock, fascinate and haunt whatever screen it's watched on.

Alex Garland's bracing brainteaser has the courage of its own ambiguity. You work out the answers in your own head, in your own time, in your own dreams, where the best sci-fi puzzles leave things. Get ready to be rocked.

Writer-director Alex Garland has made an atom bomb of a movie, fiery and all-consuming and quite unnatural. It fills every inch of our heads with its beautiful terrors.

Annihilation is a ferocious, feral, female-centric update of fearsome monster classics like The Thing and Alien.

Like all the best horror, Annihilation is steeped in character, mood, and ideas.

'Annihilation' is one of those movies were it is both very disturbing and extremely satisfying at the same time. I don't really recommend this movie that much for fantasy and sci - fi lovers because of it's lack of excitement.
