Annihilation centres around a biologist (Natalie Portman, simply known as The Biologist, like everyone else in the cast when it comes to their profession), who signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.
In an alien-style world and landscape, I was reminded of 2016’s Arrival, in terms of weirdness going on. However, I really enjoyed that, while writer/director Alex Garland’s Ex-Machina left me wanting.
