Stylish and inventive, The Arrival offers a surprisingly smart spin on the alien invasion genre.

What it lacks in sophistication (everything), it partly makes up for in sheer gall.
It's a strong, lean piece of writing that moves quickly. Nothing is wasted, and nothing happens the way you'd expect.
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.
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.
[Sheen] spends most of the movie in a kind of sweaty apoplexy that makes one worry for his health.
The CGI alien special effects are only so-so, but the film is rich in ideas, well-executed and is pleasingly entertaining even if silly.
Less an alien invasion movie than a conspiracy film (it just hapens to turn out that the conspirators are aliens).
You know a movie's in trouble when it's called The Arrival and nothing arrives -- the film's aliens are already here.
The aliens-among-us plot gets a very entertaining and inventive update.
A good premise, hampered by a weak ending.
...it ultimately seems apparent that the movie would've been well-served had it topped out at 90 minutes (ie it's too long and feels it).
I remember very little about this film to give it a higher rating than this. I'll have to revisit it one day.
Not a bad movie. Typical science fiction - aliens are on earth, and only one guy (Charlie Sheen) does something about it - even though he gets fired, loses his girl friend, has friends die mysteriously, gets framed for murder, etc.
Not a bad alien film.
Charlie Sheen playing a radio astronomer who discovers an alien base on Earth... need I say more? Fantastic. ;-)
