Arrival Review by Regina
Star
1) Did you like it?

Yes.

2) Why?

When a number of alien spaceships arrived on earth, linguistic professors Louise Banks is tasked to interpret their language. This is the crux of the story of Arrival, director Denis Villeneuve’s latest sci-fi flick.

Arrival builds itself a bit too slowly for my liking, but it is visually enchanting and scored wonderfully. It’s also incredibly smart, each scene adding something to the overall story and revealing new information to the viewers. It took me a while to really grasp the subtle hints and understand what the film is getting at, but when I did it was quite mind-blowing.

Amy Adams also deserves a shout-out for her wonderful performance here.

3) “You would enjoy this movie if…”

- You enjoy Sci-Fi movies that thrive less on action but more on mystery and take their time developing the story.
- You enjoy linguistics! Apparently director Denis Villeneuve and screenwriter Eric Heisserer created a fully functioning, visual, alien language for this film.

4) “This movie made me think about… “

What it would take to create an entire language — how did our ancestors manage? If we were to completely rehash our languages, how would we do it?

5) Overall rating?

3.5 stars. (Posted on 24/02/2017)
