Annihilation might be an enigma to many. It’s marketed like a Nolan film but with the budget, Annihilation doesn’t give away much other than the fact that there’s a foreign threat that could be alien. Going in dark to this film is preferred because watching the story unravel is a spectacle. From 2nd time writer/director, Alex Garland, we are given a science fiction to marvel at with incredible imagery and fantastic narrative. The former is to be expected of; Garland is prolific in writing notable sci-fi films. However, his evolution as a director with a bigger budget is admirable as he doesn’t lose sight of the goal he’s trying to attain. Chalk Annihilation up as a film everyone will have a strong opinion about and one that will have longevity in the world of sci-fi films.
