This mystery, sci-fi movie literally blew me away! I was on the edge of my seat for about 75% of the time. Typical alien movies are basically monster movies, but Arrival flips the norm and delivers a much different perspective. Instead of an action thriller, it’s more suspenseful, but it builds up beautifully. The alien lifeforms are intelligent, but our protagonists are also intelligent. Amy Adams’ performance was fantastic and all of her interactions with the aliens are phenomenal. This movie plays with time in a way I’ve never seen before and I loved it! Can’t recommend this movie enough!
