Claudette ‘CJ’ Walker (Edna Duncan-Smith) and Sebastian J Thomas (Dante Crichlow) are best friends and science geniuses. They are both at the Bronx Science School and, with the summer holidays coming, are hoping to win a Science expo that is coming up in a weeks time.
It was calling me. When a film registers two point four on IMDB, it is begging to be reviewed. Begging I tell ya! The opening credits, which looked like they were knocked up on a budget PC, are woeful. They are, mercifully, short. Unfortunately, the film begins. Whoa, it’s terrible. I am writing this as I watch the film and it’s painful.
Alex Garland’s latest big-screen offering - and small screen, more on that later - is the ‘cerebral’ thriller Annihilation. I put cerebral in quotations as Inception this is not! Admittedly I am one of the few people who were not blown away by Garland’s last outing, the enjoyable but, I felt, too ponderous, Ex Machina.
