Surprisingly good science fiction
17 January 2018 | by GrangerSee all my reviews

I'm fairly demanding when it comes to movie quality, especially the initial script and story-telling, with zero tolerance for jump-the-shark or "zero plot" films.

This movie is just the opposite: sci fi at its very best. So when I read reviews which talk about "slow moving" and "boring script"... my answer to that is "Go watch another Transformers movie".

This film takes the form of a lengthy documentary and within that concept performs extremely well. We see here some of the best script-writing, directing, cinematography and acting that has come from film makers in years. Anyone acquainted with my other reviews will realize I don't say this lightly. I award 10 star reviews to only the best of the best-- and those are very few.

The concept of this film is basic: an unknown anomaly appears in space, accompanied by hundreds of dark globes that station themselves above the Earth's surface. Typical invasion scenario. The humans explore. There are steps taken, mistakes made etc etc.

What is different in this film is the masterful degree of story-telling, believable plot, a cohesive story line, cinematography that is "just right" (not too much, not too little), accompanied by some of the best directing and acting we have seen in a long time. Not to mention a plot twist that turns all expectations on their ear.

I find it very sad that mass-media has so mentally desensitized this generation that the current average rating of this movie is 4.4 from 443 people clearly; such state indicates our society is devolving into a state of mental junk food addicts. This movie isn't cerebral fiction; it requires no translation or head scratching at all. It simply tells a story, and that story unfolds brilliantly-- with some of the best writing, directing and acting I've seen in decades of science fiction movies.

Slow moving? Yes-- there are no zooming star fighters, light saber fights or exploding space ships here. No fight choreography, nude bodies, and amazingly not a single F-bomb in the entire film. No blood, no gore, no fanged monsters tearing out people's throats. So for those who are looking for such things, best look elsewhere. What we find here is well-done, intelligent, thoughtful, unique and creative sci fi that is all too rare in today's schlock-filled movie market. This is different. This is better.
