A new kind of invasion - Encounter (2021) - Review

Two brothers embark on a journey with their father, who is trying to protect them from an alien threat.

Moody, trippy at times, and very cerebral. This is not your normal alien encounter movie. There are so man really good parts of this movie. Riz Ahmed does a great job playing a wounded warrior. You can feel the pain that he struggles with while he tries to save his kids from a microscopic alien invasion. It has moments of action, but this one burrows its way into your brain, just like the bugs in the movie. There is some very subtle imagery throughout this film if you look for it. Michael Pearce does a great job directing and making you test your theories all the way through this one to the end. If you like ones that will make you think, this one is for you. Let me know what you think.

Ranking 6.9/10
