I drove in a huge snow storm to see "Annihilation" and thank god I also saw Red Sparrow or I would have been really pissed. Several flashbacks to irrelevant sex scenes with no sex in them. I imagine the film director after realizing his picture is boring and stupid decided he better show Natalie Portman's bare back or risk losing distribution of this drivel altogether. After several teams of marines disappear in a forest someone thinks it's a good idea to send in a group of young women "scientists" with assault rifles, and no training to confront an unknown alien something or other. Just as expected the brainless girls start fighting amongst each other and each one wants to go her own way. How very high school is that? To rationalize sending in a team of children Jeff Vandermeer and Alex Garland thought they better have the little girls say a few scientific type sounding words but not too many because they are a bit hard to pronounce. This film gives the SciFi genre a bad name.

This film should be annihilated!Reviewed bymlaholaVote: 1/10
Though many will see the beginning as slow, but boys is continuing watching worth, I found this to be a very unique and refreshing film in the wake of super hero trash and remakes/sequels. You know the story already, if you don't watch the trailer, and even the trailer doesn't even scratch the surface of the mind being descent into the unknown. I found the pacing and structures of the film to be well made, as well as the direction, the soundtrack only enhanced the unique visuals ans scenes of intensity. While the story seems vague and predictable, but the film takes a hard right turn, blowing your mind. I can't tell you how much I wanted to clap at the final twist.
I have a feeling many people won't fully understand, as the film is highly sophisticated when it comes to scientific explanations about whats supposedly going on. You will have so many question while you watch the film. Te only real things a disliked was the opening and some of the sub-plots. I found the opening an odd choice by the director and expended different, and there were several sub-plots I found to be unnecessary. But these were just minor inconveniences and didn't really take me out of the film experience.
I would highly recommend this.
Alex Garland's second directorial outing after the excellent Ex Machina, this brainy, metaphysical sci-fi is even more ambitious and more amazing. But its challenging conclusion could be a hard sell. Based on Jeff VanderMeer's novel, Annihilation slightly resembles Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker (1979), a highly artistic masterpiece from a much braver time, when audiences were less likely to balk at ambiguity. Like Ridley Scott did in Blade Runner 2049, Garland combines unusual, imaginative visuals, ideas, and sounds with more traditional audience-aimed thrills -- but he does so far more seamlessly than Scott. The film is less focused on climactic battles, instead heading toward a far more poetic, surreal ending.The shape of Annihilation is nothing short of brilliant, with a linear, minimalist starting point that consists of simple, straightforward images (like a lighthouse). It then opens up like a strange, exotic flower, following different offshoots to new, unexpected points in its unpredictable world. The movie is admirable for featuring five women (and no men) as the characters who embark on the journey; Portman's performance especially makes it an emotional one. But given that the movie is sometimes creepy and perhaps even unsettling, it sets itself up as being more of a cult favorite -- it's closer to 2001: A Space Odyssey than to Star Wars -- than a mainstream hit. Still, if you prefer your sci-fi deep, then you're in for a treat.
