“Annihilation” is directed by Alex Garland and it stars Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriquez, Tessa Thompson and Oscar Isaac. The movie is based on the book of the same title. The movie is about a group of scientist that enters an area “The Shimmer”. It is filled with mysterious plants and animals. The scientist tries to discover and find the source of “The Shimmer” to stop it from spreading. I did not know much about this movie unit a few days before it got released. From the high score of Rotten Tomatoes and people give it high ratings I was really excited for this movie. The movie for me was good but I did not have much fun with it as other people did in the theater. For the pros, the cinematography and the visual effects of the movie were beautiful. It was amazing to see it in the theater as it looked incredibly real. Another pro was the characters of the movie all of them had different motives which was really interesting as most movies of science-friction always have the same motives. For the con, it was the story, this might be the first movie that left me thinking for days as I was to figure it out what was the idea in the movie. Most people that I talked to had different ideas on what the movie was about but it leaves you really confusing.
Overall, with the visual effects and the characters I would go and watch the movie but the story is really tricky to understand.
