5 reviews of Annihilation (2018)

    8.3 / 10

    Garland gives us a masterful, dazzlingly beautiful and deeply unsettling film that you will definitely ponder long after the credits have stopped rolling. - Tor Aavatsmark

    8 / 10

    "Annihilation" is a hybrid of philosophical sci-fi, so-called body horror and classic survival thriller, which alternates between an almost rapturous calm, psychological terror and elements of raw horror. It is mind-bending - and brilliantly shimmering. - Karolina Fjellborg

    8 / 10

    It is slow, spiritual and challenging, and steers away from all simple answers. - Viktor Jerner

    8 / 10

    As the credits roll and I slowly pick up my chin from the floor, I'm ready to give "Annihilation" full marks. But once I've calmed down a bit and reflect on the film as a whole, it's not quite there, but it's very close. - Gustav Larsed

    Negative, no rating

    In the three-act structure - exposition, complication, resolution - that a film usually rests on, it's as if Alex Garland never gets past the exposition. The lingering feeling is that of having seen an illustrated sketchbook to a film that was never completed. - Michael Tapper
