It is a great science fiction film in which the author takes a step forward regarding what he had already offered us in Ex Machina. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
Mr. Garland has a talent for unnerving you with quietly dissonant notes and an occasional grotesque flourish.
New York Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- [V]isionary, unsettling....The sound design, especially in the climax, is spectacular, keeping us disoriented and frightened with atonal noises that almost sound like they’re turning in on themselves.
Rating: 3.5/4 -- Takes us into a whole new world and abandons us to our own devices, making for a cinematic experience that is as compelling as it is frustrating. Full Review
From the Front Row
Rating: A- -- Annihilation is strange in the most complimentary form of that descriptor. It is borderline profound, a singular experience and the kind of escapist fiction that truly liberates audiences from the oppressive weight of mundane reality. Full Review
The Reader (Omaha, NE)
[A] ferocious, feral, female-centric update of fearsome monster classics like THE THING and ALIEN.
It’s hugely refreshing, and remarkably uncommon, to watch a genre film that revolves around intelligent characters reacting intelligently to fantastical events.
After her husband (Oscar Isaac) barely returns alive from a secret expedition, biologist Lena (Natalie Portman) leads an anthropologist (Gina Rodriguez), a surveyor (Tessa Thompson), a linguist (Tuva Novotny), and a psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh) into a mysterious, expanding region called the Shimmer where evolution has taken a twisted turn. The all-female team must uncover the area's monstrous secrets to save Lena's husband and the world. Written and directed by Alex Garland. Based on the Nebula Award-winning novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer, which is the first in a trilogy.
