Attraction is technically brilliant but follows clichéd American Alien Invasions screenplay
16 April 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Prityazhenie/Attraction (2017): We have seen lot of alien invasion films in various themes.We saw its destructing New York,we saw its friendship with humans,we saw even when it questions our humanity.Attraction,a 2017 Russian Alien Invasion film combined all these themes and released it in IMAX 3D which is the 4th one in the country.So how is it?

Plot:

An alien spaceship, following an accident in space, enters the earth atmosphere and being damaged by Russian fighter jets, crash lands in a populated area of Moscow taking a few hundred human lives in the crash. A school girl saves the life of one of the aliens and together must deal with humans who intend them harm.

Plus Points:

1)VFX: Attraction has great VFX but it gave an impression of watching an anime.Still,it is a proof that Russian film industry technical standards.Initial appearance of the space ship and its destruction is shown splendidly well.

2)Background Score: Attraction has one of the best Background scores I have heard in foreign cinema.Especially in the destruction scene at start,BGM is awesome.

3)Message at end: It has good message at end especially the immigration issues and water scarcity issues are handled well

Minus Points:

1)Screenplay: After half n hour,movie was dragged with lot of clichéd scenes.It followed the exact same pattern of earlier films.

So,Attraction is technically brilliant but follows clichéd American Alien Invasions screenplay.

My rating 5.75/10
