"If you're looking for an action and "turn brain off now" film, just don't watch it and spare us the 6-7 hearts review. I for one, am very tired from 500$m crap like Indi Day and Marvel's poop. So I was very excited to watch this one. This one is more like Spielberg's Encounters from the Third Kind. It's more about the characters in the film and the amazing journey they go through. It's mostly about the human behavior that will make you think. While it's not an End of the World aliens movie like Battle: Los Angeles, it still offers great amount of military presence and plenty of stuff that's going on. So if you actually want to care about an intelligent movie and use your head - go. Otherwise, go watch an X men. Highly recommended for some audience 10/10. 2-feb-2017 edit: Just came out on Bluray and I saw it again. Definitely keeping my rating."

"Villeneuve follows up "Sicario" with a gem. A deep, twisty and emotional sci-fi piece. Aspects of time, how we view life experiences, communication and and if we would still choose paths even knowing the outcome are a few theme that are touched upon. Jóhannsson again composes a masterpiece score instilling the needed wonderment and fear first contact would dictate. And of course a great cast including Adams, Renner and Whitaker. Just awesome, gotta see it again!"

"Subtle, imaginative, and well-told story that doesn't rely on big-budget effects or a body count. Original, unique concepts weaved together for an enjoyable movie. If you're looking for high-tech space battles, fast-paced action and death -- this isn't that kind of SciFi -- move along... ;-)"

Denis Villenueve. A solid lineup. A different take on first contact. I loved Sicario but went in expecting a cerebral epic sci-fi.

That was a mistake.

Good things:
- Some really nice visual scenes
- Interesting aliens [spoiler]Calligraphy aliens![/spoiler]
- Clear theme of communication is More

CONTAINS SPOILERS 8/10   5 years ago
[8.2/10] It’s hard to talk about *Arrival* without spoiling the film. So much of what makes it more than just a well-done first contact story is tied up in its later developments. They recontextualize enough of the prior proceedings that trying to discuss the import or quality of the film without More

I don't believe I've ever been so captivated by such a deeply flawed movie as I am with Arrival. What others have written about far more insightfully than I could, namely that the acting is hollow at best, that the plot is nothing so much as a severely frayed thread in danger of completely u More

Arrival has created the most profound and seamless symbolism, notably through cinematography/imagery, that may have ever been achieved to date in film.

On the surface, this appears to be a story about humans making contact with an alien species. For those with keen critical thinking skills, the s More
