  • Awesome

    A bit slow to develop but hanging off the edge of my seat the whole time. Really makes you think and plays tricks on the mind like a Christopher Nolan film. Glad there was some closure about the aliens and their visit.
  • Excellent movie!

    Every person who gave this 0 or 1 Stars just doesn’t have the brainpower to understand the films logic.
  • Amy Adams is hot

    By Nicholas becerra
    Arrival was the most interesting science fiction movies i have ever seen in a theater. And most of all the movie's tone is so well done and excueted that sets the tone for this science fiction drama awatis. If you think about it Arrival is a melo-drama science fiction that oh aliens are here and are going to take over the planet no it's just about communcation and emotions throughout. I thought Amy Adams performence was fantastic so as Jeremy Renner who is good playing Hawkeye like usual and he does a good job and i enjoyed the movie i wish i go into detail but it's a sweet sour taste of the mind.
  • Overrated and Meaningless

    By hdhbsnsksi
    Truthfully, everyone saying that this movie is stunning is attempting to sound smart. Realistically, this movie means nothing but attempts to sound deep. Not only does it not make sense, but it is boring. Extremely boring. One may think that the story will lead up to an intense and climactic ending, but all viewers get is an awkward a flashback that tries to disguise itself as something of deep, thought provoking meaning. It does not mean anything. It is dumb. Y’all wasted my time.
  • Wonderfully done - also not your typical alien movie

    By I almost never review movies
    I am not a big fan of alien movies, but this is not really an alien movie. It’s about a lot more. Gorgeous scenery, loved the linguistics and communication themes (I’m also into that kind of thing). Film leaves you with much to ponder.
  • Perfect

    By DannyPlusOne
    Not your average “aliens conquer earth” but still very awesome; one of the movies I call “hacking the heart”
  • My favorite movie ever

    By solar pixie chick
    I love everything about this movie. It blends science, spirituality and the human condition seamlessly. The soundtrack and scroe is haunting and it leaves me in tears every time.
  • Amazing

    By Havefunfunanna
    This movie is a work of art. It’s the kind of movie that you need to watch 2 or 3 times to understand it all. It messes with your head in the best way possible. 6/5 stars.
  • A sci-fi movie that’s really ahead of their time!

    It really gave me new insight on how people decide with what they are given. It showed how people handle those decisions. Some people embrace it, some run from it, and some resist it. Please watch this movie. I am really glad I had the opportunity to really watch and absorb this movie.
