arrival trailer

If you like to watch a Sci-Fi movie that actually got a meaning, then Arrival is for sure a very nice movie to watch from Sony Pictures Entertainment. This movie moves the boundaries for how a Sci-Fi movie can be, because it makes you think. Also it is for more than the most hardcore Sci-Fi fan out there. Read on!..

The Plot is Political and Emotional
Taking place after several alien crafts have landed around the world. An expert linguist from a University is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. This movie put the questions about how humans can co-operate, why are we so divided today and why humans thinks the worst of each other etc. The plot is emotional and strong. It keeped me hooked for sure.

The Effects and Making
All the effects, except for in a few scenes in the end is pretty awesome. Especially the angels and views from within the alien spaceship. The fact that they have managed to film on various places on earth makes also the movie look much wider and much more interesting for people outside of US, though much of the plot is American focused. Visuals are great, but could be better. Some of the scenes inside are just too dark. Yes, the story is strong for one of the characters in the movie, but this could have been done a lot better for sure.

The Actors of Arrival are new but Very talented
Arrival is a film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Eric Heisserer, based on the 1998 short story “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang. It stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker. The main characters in the movie does a great job. They do fit together and there is no fatal errors that some American movies tend to have if the production is a bit over the top. The actors are down to earth and they do feel authentic, which I personally love about it.

The Music and the Sound
If there is one aspect of the movie that really, really shines. It must be the music and sound. It’s very realistic, but at the same time giving the very right atmosphere. Maybe the music won’t appeal for everyone, but if you love music for films this movie won’t dissapoint. I like it from start to end, although the scrolling text music at the end could be better.

Amy Adams is doing a fantastic job in Arrival

Yes, there is some but most of the movie is for people loving movies that gives them something back. The ending of the movie however could be better, but it’s not the worst. All in all, this is a Sci-Fi movie that is indeed for the mind and it does that really well. Watch it in your nearest Cinema today if you can! It is really worth it, and don’t be shy taking your girlfriend or friend that doesn’t like Sci-Fi too much onto this movie. They might even love it as much as you do.
