Close encounters of a very human kind. It’s not too hard to see where this film is going but that doesn’t undermine the final powerful moments. Riz Ahmed is one of the best actors of this generation and he turns in another great performance here. The boys playing his sons also shine in this conventional but moving film.

This is my first comment on this platform and this movie made me do it. It has bad reviews for being labeled a sci fi movie. Otherwise I personally felt this movie should have been highly rated. It sent chills up my back at the ending which hasn’t happened to me in a while. Awesome movie that if you just go with the flow instead of trying to guess where it’s going can be super entertaining.

it's a very good and well-acted movie. riz ahmed and the two young boys who play his sons are all incredible. the soundtrack is also great. it's not a sci-fi movie and while the movie makes that clear pretty early on, it's not early on enough to justify being labeled as sci-fi. technically, the threat :asterisk_symbol:isn't:asterisk_symbol: human. mental illness doesn't feel at all like being a human.

please delete Sci-Fi tag.. it is not anywhere close.. and adventure is also wrong.. Drama and Thriller maybe if someone looking for Sci-Fi, it is 108 minutes wasted

"Encounter features good performances, but sadly, it fails to deliver a creative, captivating take on an "alien invasion" flick.

Riz Ahmed tries his best to carry Michael Pearce's work to safe har More
