They make a trek into the forest just like Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, then enter a lighthouse, much like The Good Son and deal with creatures straight out of The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Wait, are these not the references we're all making? Who the hell is Tarkovsky?

Garland builds a world with an infinite scope but doesn't trust his audience enough to let it flourish. Annihilation is a film that can't decide on being ambiguous or grandiose, constantly abandoning ideas while over-cooking others, the final product feels bitter and hollow. Even the visuals, while interesting, were tinged with some B-movie lens-flare, the whole thing just didn't feel natural.

Annihilation is merely a "Shimmer," a prism that presents only "refracted" and "mutated" images and ideas from sci-fi classics.

Tries so hard to be the most oblique, enigmatic movie that it begins to feel like it's pulling random images directly from the filmmaker's dreams and pasting them into a collage of pontificating bullshit. I hate to break it to you, Garland, but your metaphors for cancer are about as thin as the poorly planned expeditions to The Shimmer and the comparisons to "Stalker" make me want to cry. In spite of the idiotic Rorschach test of a plot, this movie is tremendously fascinating in its visuals.

Bizarre and beautiful film that maybe stumbles a bit when it comes to the cerebral, but more than makes up for that with an intense tonality. Everything set inside the Shimmer is completely engrossing and one of the most anxiety-inducing experiences I've had with a film. There's an intense wrongness that permeates those scenes, and the body horror is ludicrously effective. Just needs a bit better of a foundation.
