Watch Annihilation movie online free – There were interesting aspects of human existence problems. But basically the whole movie about a reflection of the mutations of the cancer cells. It was like a documentary showing what would happen if the mutations in cancer cells was happening in the world. That was quite interesting perspective indeed. There were a lot of holes in the movie but that was not so important because in real life we don’t understand a lot of things as well. Afterwards we will try to make sense about it. So it was kind of chaotic which was partly beautiful and makes you deeply think about it. I certainly liked the twisted end as well.

Annihilation review by Deoglood – Annihilation is amazing!
My mind was blown after reading the book of which the movie is based, and this production has done an incredible job of what must have been a very difficult transition from imagination to the screen. I am very glad they made this!
It is one of those movies that so many will be “What?” because of the complex ideas presented, but regardless if you ‘get it’ or not, it will open your eyes to everything we take for granted as normal. Annihilation the movie did not perfectly match up with how I interpreted the book, but it respectfully adhered to the book and I realize how much I missed initially when reading. Usually one wants to watch the movie again after reading the book.
The visual effects are intense and fantastically done, the cinematography is outstanding and I was surprised how well the acting was, given the abstract concepts. Well done for the entire crew and cast!

Annihilation review by KJ Proulx – A Slow, Yet Powerful Story
Writer/director Alex Garland has been in the game for quite some time. Writing fantastic movies like 28 Days Later and Sunshine, his knack for filmmaking has always been present but was taken to another level in 2014 when he wrote and directed his first feature film in Ex Machina.
Being one of my favorite films of that year, I found myself extremely excited for his next directed project. Annihilation has just hit theatres and if you’re not someone who enjoys a slow burn in order to reach a worthy payoff, then this movie may not be for you. If you’re up for anything and can embrace any sort of sci-fi story, then here’s why I think you’ll probably end up loving this movie as much as I did.
Going into detail about the plot of this film would truthfully ruin it, so I’m going to explain this premise as simple as I possibly can. After having to deal with a tragic personal incident, Lena tasks herself with a group of women who plan to enter a forcefield area that has been created after a meteor has hit.
Learning that they may not all come out alive, they strive forward to find the answers. Yes, that sounds very vague, but it’s hard to talk about this movie to someone who hasn’t seen it. For a premise like this, you need a few key things to make it work; A great screenplay, a great cast, and a nice through-line of direction to hold the movie together.
Annihilation is a film that places its characters first before anything else, and while that definitely works in its favor, if the story surrounding them doesn’t work then the overall film will fall pretty flat.
Although it takes itself very seriously and many of the scenes are very slow-paced, you can tell that Garland has created a film that will slowly reveal itself as it goes along, providing insight into the backstory of each character as well as providing answers as who what exactly they’re trying to uncover. Flashing back and forth between the past and the future, answers are given at the most opportune times in order to benefit the film.
Natalie Portman remains a powerhouse when it comes to dramatic performances. I’ve always been a fan of her in pretty much any dramatic role and this one was no exception. That being said, she’s not the only one who shines here.
From Gina Rodriguez to Tessa Thompson, each of the supporting members seemed to have their time to shine and certain inciting moments had me on the edge of my seat. There are some truly thrilling moments sprinkled throughout this movie and I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. I know I’m a sucker for great sci-fi films, but this is just another one to add to the list.
In the end, while I can’t say everyone will love this movie because I’d be lying if I did, I believe that everyone can at least admire the attempt at being different and unique from most mainstream movies out there today. Annihilation takes risks and doesn’t give itself up to a generic conclusion. It chooses to be different from most films and never lets its foot off that peddle. Wonderfully directed, very well-written, and beautiful to look at, I can’t really come up with any huge complaints.
Yes, some will complain about the pacing and few may even complain about it being too bizarre in its final act, but I found these aspects to be a great addition. Annihilation is a fantastic movie and I wouldn’t be surprised if this film ends up in my discussion for best films of 2018 at the end of the year. The year is still very young, but I can’t recommend this movie enough. Go in with an open mind and you may just love it.
Annihilation review by Eyefordetail – Good sci-fi with refreshing touch. Enjoy it, don’t intellectualise it.
It’s hard to find novel sci-fi these days, but this movie explored a few new directions that I found entertaining. The story is good and the execution carried and developed the suspense well. Sometimes a movie needs to be rated as how engaging it is, how it kept your attention and how it made you feel, not how many “plot holes” there are, how “logical” it was and such intellectual drivel. Enjoying a movie is like drinking a beer – you like it or you don’t, but please don’t give me a diatribe on the size of the bubbles and whether the colour is golden amber or light gold. Who cares? I enjoyed the movie and the acting and was engaged to the end. Which means in entertainment value: Goal achieved.
Annihilation review by Amin Parvaresh – Different movie, worth watching
I am not going to get into the very specific details as I am sure many people have already done it, instead, I am going to share my experience with this movie. The overall experience for me was “different” and “enjoyable”. I really enjoyed the story, the theory it was trying to show, and some other things. Though there was many moments were the movie was poorly made, really, however, after watching the whole movie, I felt really different, and horrified to some extent, I don’t know how to explain it, but it doesn’t happen that much. The concept behind the movie and the overall experience for me was very good and I would recommend watching it, if you’re into Sci-Fi-Thriller movies, like Prometheus or Alien: Covenant and some other movies that I cannot remember right now. So long story short; After watching it, I was glad that I’ve watched it and I really enjoyed the sensation it gave after watching it. Sorry if it’s a bad review, it’s my first time!
Annihilation review by kataleja-martyr – Annihilation is worth watching
Annihilation is a excing mixture of drama, mystery, thriller, s.f. and horror (in that order). So i would rate this movie 7 but we know it was made by a novel which we also know it got a sequel, and in hope to get more of this quite original story i would love to see a sequel because many question were left open, and in the hand of a good production team this movie could have an awesome sequel. It would be a shame to throw this movie among other few underestimated movies of the year.
Annihilation review by Joshshepherdson – so different you could easily hate it but you shouldn’t
Now i have seen about 20 reviews here and all of them were under 5 stars which shocks me, I was going to give it an 8 because it felt it lacked something but I couldn’t quite determine what but opted for 9 for sheer originality and the some of the visuals, I think sci-fi is starting to wear out because ideas have to keep getting increasingly abstract to be original and I think a lot of the hate is for this being so incomprehensible as possible, there certainly are things in the film that defy scientific explanation but maybe that’s a good thing, it is science FICTION don’t forget. This can feel a little slow and sparse but it is certainly in my opinion an amazing movie. I get some hate but I don’t understand how most of the reviews I’ve seen averaged about 2-3 stars, sci-fi is my fave genre and far from being disappointed, I was happy that something suprised me with things so unexpected.
Annihilation review by Ubikcorp – Dazzling sci-fi puzzle with no easy answers
Annihilation is based on a novel of the same name by Jeff Vandermeer, a writer specialized in a literary sub-genre known as “weird fiction”. This book is the first from a trilogy; however, director-screenwriter Alex Garland (“Ex Machina”) wrote this adaptation before the next two books were even published. It follows the story of a Lena, a biologist with military background, whose life has been shattered by the disappearance of her soldier husband who had gone on a secret mission into an ecological disaster area presumably harboring an alien presence. Lena will be recruited as part of a scientific expedition into the unknown that will try to find some answers. As someone who have read the books, I appreciate the way the director has made this story his own, taking enough from the book to make the story recognizable, but at the same time making his own interpretations and connections, expanding on its themes and characters. There is much wonder, weirdness and visual poetry to be found in the beautiful and exceptionally well crafted film, and to my surprise there is also plenty body horror and sudden outbursts of gnaly monster action. The movie weaves different timelines in a very seamless way, with a combination of economy and elegance that is both eloquent and easy to follow; this makes it possible to introduce different layers of meaning within the narrative (psychological, scientific, philosophical), and to tackle big themes without becoming pretentious or obtuse. The film contains memorable dialogue not included in the original novel and the characters are much more fleshed out (the conversation between the biologist and the psychologist about the nature of self destruction is a highlight, and a pivotal moment). This is a project where you can clearly appreciate the simbiotic relationship between two highly imaginative thinkers (perhaps the best collaboration since Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke in “2001: An Space Odyssey”). “Annihilation” represents the type of reflexive science fiction that ponders about our place in the cosmos, our intrinsic mutability, and the horrors this conjures; it amounts to a surreal, sciency phantasmagoria about desintegrating identity, deeply rooted in cosmic horror. And I have no words to describe that climax apart from saying it left me in complete awe. This is for sure a new sci-fi classic that consolidates Garland as one of the major sci-fi visionaries of our time.
Annihilation review by LongLiveTheNewFlesh27 – A brilliant movie hidden in a mediocre movie
The only advice I can give to anybody going to see Annihilation is: stick with it. I definitely was close to checking out around the middle point, but quickly my interest was piqued and in the blink of an eye the movie turned into a profound, 2001 meets Under The Skin meets Predator surreal science fiction near- masterpiece.
The first half is so patiently mediocre that the second half almost feels like a completely different movie, making the movie a mixed bag but one that’s totally worth it. Some of the performances are great, some are okay, and at least one is noticeably bad. Natalie Portman turns in a great performance (she carries the entire film) and Jennifer Jason Leigh gives a reserved and underplayed angle to a well worn out archetype. The side characters however, like Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson, are mostly annoying and sometimes border on being simply bad. Oscar Isaac is very good.
Most of the technical choices are good. The cinematography isn’t particularly flashy but it captures the world behind the shimmer in all of it’s messed up glory (the last twenty minutes are truly a thing to behold). The music choices are also a mixed bag. Soft strum guitar comes in at random intervals and doesn’t really work, but the dark, brooding thump of a certain synth track really gives you a sense of cosmic horror.
I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’m going to leave it at that. Go support this movie, even if it isn’t perfect. There are so many great things about it that they way outweigh the flaws.
Annihilation review by leeronald2000 – Amazing, thought provoking film
Annihilation will be one of those love it or hate it movies. There is nothing spoon fed to you in this and for some that means being confused, lost, or turned off. For others like me it means considering possibilities, what’s next, and what does it mean. The story is slow but magical in building up the tension through the films visuals and in the light “terror”. I wasn’t completely able to put myself in the shoes of these women but I could image my reaction to some of what the characters were experiencing and then wondering why there wasn’t more panic, only to balance that with their scientific curiosity and awe. These weren’t teenagers overcome by zombies or slashers. These are trained professional scientists in the field study something beyond our science and understanding. I think the film comes together great with only a few holes here or there. And the ending is one that leaves you going….
Annihilation review by Frijoldude – A Mystical and Entertaining Watch.
I came to watch Annihilation shortly after reading the book, and was left slightly disappointed as it follows its own trajectory, just for the book-lovers out there. The film does leave a lot unanswered, which is why I think some people disliked it.
As any good thriller film should go, everything is a mystery from the beginning, this elusive plot can either make or break your love for the film, all I’ll say is go with it and don’t try and pick holes in everything you see. The underlying tone of the film, in my opinion, is that there are things out there beyond our comprehension and comparing them to things we know on earth is illogical. The suspense never dissipates, and you’re constantly craving to find out what will happen next, all the while slightly frightened at the prospect. Natalie Portman plays a brilliantly conflicted biologist who’s main reason for joining the mission is to understand what happened to her husband in the same mission, but what she finds is unexpected. Having to depict a range of emotions, mainly confusion and sadness in a bewildering environment shows the steps people go through, trying to rationalise that which is impossible.
At the end of the film, your questioning your sanity whilst trying to appreciate the alluring atmosphere the film provides.
A thoroughly good watch.
