  • 1 stars sheer waste of your money and time, to watch it.
  • 1 stars The most overrated movie of the holiday season. I love a good alien flick, but this film was just plain dull and went nowhere. Yes, the acting was good, but the story was as bland as can be. The ending bordered on ridiculous. If you want to watch a quality film about cracking a foreign language or code see The Imitation Game instead.
  • 4 stars Really enjoyed Arrival you had to think and read between the lines a little. Bright positive look into other potentials for life. I am still disappointed in Manchester by the Sea I will never trust the critics after that sad disappointment
  • If you have even the most elementary grasp of logic or physics, RUN AWAY!!!!! If you know anything about filming and want to see how to ruin a movie by using an F1.0 lens to eliminate any significant depth of field, then this is the movie for you... The logic is deeply flawed, the science gibberish, and the attempts to use shallow depth of field to be artsy are amateurish at best. I left the theatre with a headache.
  • Total waste of our money, I slept through most of it. The loudness woke me at times.
  • 1 stars Not much to this movie. Did not seem understandable and ultimately did not make much sense. I was having to fight to stay awake which is not a sign of a compelling movie. Wait for the DVD release or Netflix.
  • 5 stars Very well acted, and well choreographed throughout. (No that doesnt mean dancing). Warning: IF you're shallow and looking for a film that entertains you without expecting you to think, then don't see this one. Try "Secret Life of Pets" or something really simplistic. Otherwise, you will watch this, wish it was over because you didn't understand the nuances in it, and ultimately, you'll give it one star rating like the nice folks above. ;)
  • 1 stars Wow, if only I had a lamp with a magic genie I would have wished I had never sat in the theatre to slumber through this. So painfully boring and slow moving for me; but then, I am not one of these brilliant five star raters who can see beauty and meaning in watching icicles form and melt; if you are of average intelligence and bored easily; forget this.
  • 1 stars Wish I didn't watch it...
