Film Brief: Arrival

Ugh.  If you’re looking for wonder, awe, magic and mystery along the lines of Close Encounters, 2001, Alien, Moon, or The Box, keep looking. Honestly, this made me reminisce for Skyline.  What’s not boring is either ridiculous or inept, and to make matters worse an impotent, muddled world peace message is unfolded through the second half.  A semi-intriguing alien language course salvages Arrival from the absolute dregs.

I suppose you could say that at least they’re trying; I would answer, not very hard.  3/10
