A familial psychodrama with well-crafted sci-fi elements and a pair of impressive child actors, Michael Pearce’s ‘Encounter’ is both surprising and emotional. The movie centres around a heroic former soldier trying to save his two young sons from evil aliens from outer space.
We see Malik (Ahmed), a former marine, a tough but troubled guy with military experience and access to military intelligence is watching for signs and discovered the truth about this alien bug invasion, which to his rage the US government has covered up. This alien is preying on people through insect bites and burying itself deeply in their skin.
Malik is worried because the insects have now infected as much as half the population; these people are mostly asymptomatic but it is only a matter of time before there is an outbreak of horror. He quickly putting together a plan to save the world from these invading insects. From here, Malik takes himself on a road-trip to safety in a story that paints a picture of the violent struggle of an ex-solider.
Malik, before taking off straight to shelter in the arms of the military, picks up his two children, Bobby and Jay (Aditya Geddada and Lucian-River Chauhan, respectively). He stuffs the frightened kids into his car, pouring love and pride onto them for remembering they have the coolest dad and regaling them with the dangers of the infestation. As their journey takes them in increasingly dangerous directions, the boys will need to leave their childhoods behind.
