[4.50/10] Encounter (2021)

Encounter (2021)

Quick Review: What kicks off as a 'virus' sci-fier about mind-controlling bugs, using some superb close-up opening shots, quickly turns into a 'road movie' involving a disturbed father on-the-run with his two sons, and it doesn't take long until you realize it's all in Malik's head, and though Ahmed is very convincing as the paranoid ex-prisoner, you can't help but feeling misled by the whole 'mental illness' twist and let down by the inevitably generic finale, and the actual waste of Spencer.
