This is Sci-fi with some horror elements.
Plot: After the disappearance of her husband Kane (Oscar Isaac) a year prior, intrepid biologist Lena (Natalie Portman) braves the ecological expedition into the unknown Area X with only a professional crew of four by her side.
1. The movie is gorgeous and all the visuals whether beautiful or horrifying are stunning to look at.
2. Natalie Portman is fantastic as Lena who is determined to save her husband but as a character who realizes quickly the situation she has gotten into.
3. The rest of the cast also did a great job.
4. The story is something different and what unfolds is something that had me invested.
5. I love Natalie Portman (ok that one is biased)
6. Movie is excellently directed.
1. It's a slow burn at first, which might turn some people off but it's worth it.
2. While acted well some of the side characters didnt get enough characterization.
3. Things weren't fully explained in the end, now that doesn't bother me but it may bother some. .
