Unwatchable
13 April 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There is nothing redeeming about this film whatsoever. The Arrival was a unique, decently made film worth watching for anyone interested in sci-fi or aliens. This film is utterly horrible. It's so horrible that I don't want to waste time describing how bad it is. I have seen thousands of films and in my opinion this is one of the worst ever. Dismal acting, inexcusably horrendous cinematography, pathetic flaws. A spinning vortex ball has the ability to pull a building apart and suck everything and everyone into it, except for two people who manage to hang on to a bare concrete wall and eventually push them selves out a door in the opposite direction as the suction. Special effects? Home computer CGI. A person could spend as much time as the movie runs long describing everything that stinks about it.

Unwatchable.
