Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.
The best films of this genre always show a path and provide a takeaway for being a better person.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
If you've ever played S.T.A.L.K.E.R., or read the Strugatski novella, or watched the Tarkovsky film, you'll find plenty of similarities. Namely: the Zone, the Heart of the Zone, the mutants, death as an ordinary companion, and moments of sheer beauty. Yet this movie lacks the pessimism, the fatalism of its Slav counterparts. Ok, that's cultural, but it also fails to explore in depth the "nakedness" that personalities get in such extreme places. Plus, the plot has some severe wholes which do not add suspense, but perpexcity. Some weird decission making process also seems to affect everyone there. And last but not least, I felt that Netflix is trying to pull out all the stops its algorithms provide. Overall, I think is enjoyable, but I can't help to have the feeling that this was a missed opportunity.Btw: the mutant bear was a great and original addition to the mutants catalog. I'm sure we'll see in the future more references to this idea!
I don't normally enjoy nonlinear films anyway, and when I have, it has to be truly engulfing to rival how disjointed the story is. Annihilation is an example of a film so disjointed and jarring, that I truly believe the sole purpose of its creation is to frustrate viewers. I liked nothing about it, but I give it two stars for atmosphere.
In my honest opinion, I hayed this movie. Maybe it's because I have a huge dislike for chicks in the military, because they are so butch and masculine but let's hope not. I thought everything, from the acting to the so-called cinematography to the non-action, was boring. It's definitely one of my hated for the decade so far.I watched this without reading the original. I was going to at first, but gave up believing that I'll have expectations that are too high or get brainwashed somehow. I didn't want to review this movie as an adaptation, but just a movie.I wish I could go into more detail, but I have nothing more to say. I don't know if I recommend this movie to my liberal enemies or not in general, but give it a try if you are liberal commie diversity fan so your time can be wasted
The first 35 minutes is genius, it kept me very intrigued. Midway through it lost steam. By the final 40 minutes it went straight to the dogs. If you are in desperate need of a Sci-fi flick then maybe you can tolerate it.For some reason my biggest question and concern would be how did this seemingly random team of 5 women just mosey on into the anomaly aka The Shimmer? ... I mean the main protagonist wasn't currently enlisted in the military and just seemed to join the group. The whole time I was thinking if something like this actually happened the government would be all over it. Certain protocol and training would be required to go on such a mission. They literally just walked up to the force field wall thing aka "The Shimmer" with no radio contact or anything and just went on in.
