Critic Reviews for Encounter

All Critics (3) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (2)

  • It looks like your run of the mill sci-fi adventure - but it's not. Luke Hemsworth underplays his part and is that much more effective. Plus the movie has just enough of a twist to keep you watching every scene for clues as to what is going on.

  • With its slapdash editing, poor effects and a central creature that resembles a chopped-up Audrey II from The Little Shop of Horrors, Encounter sadly does little to improve Luke Hemsworth's filmography.

  • There's just no way one talented actor can salvage inexperienced production. Encounter is a mess from beginning to end, and if the alien was real I doubt even it could repair the damage here
