[8.25/10] Arrival (2016)

Arrival (2016)

Quick Review: Arguably the most intelligent alien-related sci-fier since "Contact", "Arrival" is a fine blend of style and substance. With its deeply provoking script built on suspense, perplexity and subtle shocks, as well as the elegant visuals, consisting of impressive shots, realistic CGIs, and eye-pleasing, dim color palette, this is a cerebral, and emotive piece of work that is all about the importance of communication, alien or not. Amy Adams is the one to watch here, as she is truly phenomenal.

It was an excellent film. Very mind-blowing. My review this week had nothing but praise for it.

I liked it a lot, but honestly, I expected even more.
Need to catch up with your reviews. Have been really busy lately.
