Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- [D]reamy, freaky, audacious. It skirts the edge of absurdity, as anything like this must, but manages to keep clear, and it includes a big flourish in the manner of early films by M Night Shyamalan...5 stars out of 5 -- [A] super-smart sci-fi that’ll blow your mind and have you on the edge of your seat without recourse to explosions or souped-up fighter jets....That it grips from its first moments is thanks in part to a superb opening montage...By turns inviting and opaque, Ms. Adams turns softness and quiet into heroic qualities, keeping her voice low, modulated, and using stillness to draw you near.3 stars out of 4 -- [T]his is ambitious, accomplished filmmaking that deserves an audience. It’s a film that forces viewers to reconsider that which makes us truly human, and the impact of grief on that timeline of existence.One of the most satisfying things about Denis Villeneuve's elegant, involving ARRIVAL is that it is simultaneously old and new, revisiting many of these alien-invasion conventions but with unexpected intelligence, visual style and heart.[There's] a surprisingly affecting emotional core to Villeneuve’s enigma—a stealth poignancy woven into the fabric of its cerebral design. Arrival has come, like a visitor from the cosmos, to blow minds and break hearts. -- Grade: B+Ultimately, it’s far less interested in galactic destiny than the infinite, uncharted landscape of the human heart. -- Grade: A-3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A] mesmerizing mindbender directed with searching mind and heart by the Quebec-born Denis Villeneuve...5 stars out of 5 -- ARRIVAL is a beautifully polished puzzle box of a story....And like all the best sci-fi, it has something pertinent to say about today’s world; particularly about the importance of communication...The look of ARRIVAL is stately and elegant; its pace, sober and deliberate.ARRIVAL hews to its sleek, unfussy storytelling, which is both suspenseful and almost poetically abstract, an effect heightened by Jóhann Jóhannsson’s unsettling score.Denis Villeneuve’s latest is a quintessential science-fiction blockbuster steeped in genre traditions and made singular by Amy Adams’s transporting performance.Denis Villeneuve directed this science-fiction suspense film about Earth's response to a possible alien invasion. After extraterrestrial spacecraft plant themselves at various locations around the globe, a linguist (Amy Adams) and a theoretical physicist (Jeremy Renner) must find a way to communicate with the mysterious visitors in order to learn what they want and whether they pose a threat to humanity. Forest Whitaker and Michael Stuhlbarg co-star.
