Annihilation [2018]

“Annihilation” tells the story of Lena, a biologist, who goes on a dangerous mission with four other women in a zone where the laws of nature don’t apply. This movie is a sci-fi/action film and was directed by Alex Garland.

The Film Stage Jordan Raup

“A shimmering example of what Hollywood sci-fi can achieve when the aim is high, Annihilation is a gripping, mystifying adventure and proof that a transportive experience is more rewarding than a story with clean-cut resolutions.”

“Annihilation” is more than just a typical alien invasion film, it has a good/different approach on this very-talked-about subject and has an interesting premise. The story itself is quite complicated but flows very very nicely.

The action sequence is actually very intense and gets even better and more horrifying towards the end. During the whole film, I was at the edge of my seat, I was literally blown-away and stressed at the same time which I think is very impressive.

The visuals are another good thing in this film. “Annihilation” has some really great shots and breath-taking cinematography and production design.

Of course, Natalie Portman makes this film even more lovable with her amazing performance as “Lena”.


Hence, “Annihilation” has more than just breath-taking visuals, the story is on point and the acting is amazing. I really advice you to watch it if you want to watch a really good sci-fi movie that can both terrify but amaze you at the same time. [the movie is a Netflix originals by the way. Good job Netflix. Good job]

I rate it a 4.5/5!

5/5: Excellent!

4/5: Very Good

3/5: Good

2/5: Bad

1/5: VERY bad! 

That’s it for this movie review. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.

    I am simply thrilled to see that you write, “…who goes on a mission…”
    Too many people write ‘that’ where it should be ‘who’…
    Sorry… pet peeve of mine

        People not native to a language often use it more correctly. English was the 4th language of Josef Konrad and was the language he wrote in. His usage was fantastic. Hunter S Thompson was an impeccable user of the language though he was often in alien worlds. An incredible testament to the strength of his mind.
        Konrad you would know from The Heart of Darkness which was interpreted for film as Apocalypse Now.

            What is your native language? You live in the cradle of civilization don’t you?

            My French is average. I love Camus. When I was in France the French people were fantastic in helping me with my rough French. I think it was more to save their beautiful language from me than it was otherwise. I love the French people though. Beautiful and bawdy senses of humour. Such a refined and intelligent culture.
            My Dutch friend there speaks 11 languages so on the one occasion someone was rude to me, she took the person to task and pointed out that there were marked and unmarked graves of Australians all around where we were from 2 wars that we didn’t need to be at.
            In fact, the 2nd one we needed our boys in New Guinea but that is another story 🤣🤠
