Reviews

Time Out - Unnamed
Encounter has a whole lot of heart and takes a sensitive approach to PTSD that is underscored by a cultural tension that comes to a head in its high-octane, action-packed final act.

The Hollywood Reporter - Leslie Felperin
It’s a surprisingly meaty work that works on several levels at once.
80
Screen Daily - Wendy Ide
In Pearce’s sure hands, the film sustains its tension, even as it sideswipes the audience with slickly executed change of tone.

Variety - Tomris Laffly
It’s deceptively simple yet deeply philosophical stuff, channeled by first-rate genre filmmaking.

Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
Riz Ahmed takes Encounter a long way. But he can't single-handedly carry a film that never quite figures out what it wants to be — stark sci-fi paranoia? Psychological family drama? Desert road-trip apocalypse?
