Storyline

An alien spaceship, following an accident in space, enters the earth atmosphere and being damaged by Russian fighter jets, crash lands in a high-rise apartment blocks area of Moscow taking a few hundred human lives in the crash. A school girl, whose father - a colonel in the military leading the military quarantine operation around the crash site, loses her best friend in the crash and is committed to kill any aliens she can find. She ends up saving the life of one of the aliens, who belongs to a much more advanced immortal humanoid race, and eventually becomes attracted to him, while her brokenhearted and violent boyfriend goes after both of them with his gang and alien-hating street mob causing confrontation and violence near the ship. The girl and the alien end up saving the humanity from a possible disaster caused by the ship and giving hope that human race might just have a future in the bigger universe. Written by vvp_14

"Attraction" handles universal themes with great production values
25 March 2017 | by (On Your Screen :)) – See all my reviews

Attraction is good film providing strong entertainment.

Led by Fedor Bondarchuk, a great production team puts together a fun film with excellent digital effects serving a solid story created by Malovichko & Zolotarev, the writing team that created the top earning popular kids fantasy film Pizrak. Bondarchuk displays an excellent instinct, introducing solid young actors who can go on to be internationally known. Art direction is equally good with small details such as a "creature of the black lagoon" poster augmenting the action. Of course product placement of potato chips proves there are smart producers involved.

Were these actors trained by Tabakov? Or are they simply standard examples of the level of acting available in Russia. Of course it is the latter!

We need more of these films, along with some TV series as well. With the pedigree of Bondarchuk and his obvious ability to sort out talent, this is to be expected. Of course, I would like to change up the dramaturgy such that there is a mixture of Russian, German, English etc... Yet with this story taking place in Russia, what other language would it use?

Considering all the great things that are accomplished when Russia is included in world endeavors, perhaps our governments should be listening to Kordakovsky and instead of isolating through sanctions which only hurt the average bloke. It is time to be more creative in response. Let go of the traditional nonsense and find better ways to work together. If nothing else, we should definitely be making films and TV together. Great art and science is universal. Perhaps if there were more shared solutions there would be less invasions and disputes, perhaps none at all.

This movie uses the standard elements necessary for a successful teen action movie: rebellious teens, a powerful father, (well played by Oleg Menshikov) irritated by his daughter's choices. Civil society filled with smart phones that appear to be the essential to those who know no better. Thoughtless actions and unexpected responses. Obviously Americans and Russians share the same standard stereotypes in which "meat heads" are glorified while intelligence is lampooned. The nerds are necessary but stupidity rules the day. Of course, it differs from an American story in that the students actually have a science teacher that does not know karate, and there are books in the homes which people appear to read. Yet the people share digital dysfunction: the ubiquitous use of Google, desire to sell everything online, and belief in easy solutions found with little effort.

It is a better story for the fact that it takes place in an advanced civil society with a female problem solver, Irina Starshenbaum, taking actions steps.

Alexander Petrov gives a strong performance as Artyom. as long as he stays steady as a person and does not kill himself through partying or obnoxiousness, he will garner more roles as the rebel, then soldier and more ....

This is movie worth seeing!
