The Arrival is part sci-fi action flick, part conspiracy thriller, and all preposterous nonsense.

"The Arrival" is a good 20 minutes too long and heavy with useless scenes in which we learn far too much about Sheen's relationship with his girlfriend.

It's like Stakeout with a glossier Sheen.

[Sheen] spends most of the movie in a kind of sweaty apoplexy that makes one worry for his health.

You know a movie's in trouble when it's called The Arrival and nothing arrives -- the film's aliens are already here.

No logic, little character development and a thin story that is supposed to be compensated for by startling effects.

A hokey summer entertainment that is full of big machinery, satellite dishes du jour, long embarrassing close-ups and gaps in logic through which large UFOs could hurtle.

The movie is as smart as ``Mission: Impossible'' is dumb.

This is not a dumb movie; in fact, with its heavy reliance upon real science, it's startlingly credible.

What it lacks in sophistication (everything), it partly makes up for in sheer gall.

A movie that shoehorns a blunt warning into its silly but entertaining story of a young radio astronomer's one-man battle against sinister extraterrestrials.

It's a strong, lean piece of writing that moves quickly. Nothing is wasted, and nothing happens the way you'd expect.
