the first #netflixoriginal
film I have watched and I was properly impressed. It’s a great sci-fi mystery adventure that’s a little bit sad, intriguing and just a bit creepy. Some great visual effects and beautiful scenes created in the #shimmer
. It also has a solid acoustic sound track builds suitable tension adding to the mystery.
What I liked most about it was that the film centres around an all female team (oh not like that). What I mean is that in a lot of adventure flicks that explore some new mysterious environment there is usually have a team of ‘experts’ surrounded by a bunch of ‘special forces bad asses’ that often put aggression before common sense. Often that adds action but more often than not leaves the viewer feeling frustrated. Annihilation took a different tact with this one, by having the military types having already having tried and failed. A different approach that allowed more screen time for the actual characters that the film is built around.
