    I love a good SF film so was really looking forward to annihilation, it got a good rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
    It is possibly the worst SF film I have seen. The story is basic, the acting crap, its badly edited and the ending just made me groan. Nothing happens for the first hour, then there are a few frights followed by a stupid scene at a lighthouse.
    Its on Netfix now-don't bother..

    You should check out Anti-Social with Prince Harry's babe Meghan Markle in it instead.

    I did bother and Iím glad I did as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Find myself disagreeing with pretty much everything you say in this post.

    Guess it would be a dull old world if we all had the same tastes eh?

    Thought it was going to be good after reading the reviews but came away disappointed.

    I watched it a while back and I enjoyed it. I thought that it was good but missed the mark of being great. You would definitely need to be in the mood for it as it is slow and moody. But I thought that it was very good. A good "thinker" of a film. Acting seemed fine to me?
