Encounter Movie Storyline

Malik Khan, a US Marine, has two small sons, Jay and Bobby. Jay and Bobby share their home with their mother Piya and her new boyfriend, Dylan. Piya has been unwell lately, and Dylan ominously informs them that it is due to a ‘bug.’

Malik shows up at their home one night, wakes up his two boys, and informs them that they are going on a road trip. Malik is driving with his sons when they come across a police cruiser and he instructs them to get down. Malik gets stopped up by a different officer some hours later. The officer is nasty and forceful, despite Malik’s politeness, and Malik notices something changing behind his eyes. The officer has been afflicted by a parasitic entity from another planet, according to Malik. Malik takes the cop’s pistol, knocks him unconscious, and abandons him in the street.

Back on the road, Malik tells his troops that they are on a rescue mission, not a road vacation. He claims that the Earth has been overrun by an extraterrestrial parasite, and that their mother has been afflicted. This extraterrestrial parasite, which uses human bodies to replicate, might infect up to half of the population. Malik says he has to bring his youngsters to safety and that they may use insect spray to protect themselves from the parasites.

Encounter Movie Review

The movie begins with an unknown object colliding with Earth’s atmosphere, causing a weird, inexplicable phenomena in which bugs grow, reproduce, and enter human bloodstreams. A single mosquito bite initiates the growth of a microcosmic insect that takes control of the host and manipulates behaviour. In essence, the individual has lost control. Malik Khan, a distinguished Marine returning from deployment, begins his day by soaking himself with insect repellant and inspecting his eyes in the glaring torchlight.

In short, it’s a family storey set in the midst of unthinkable circumstances, with a dash of science fiction thrown in for good measure. However, as the story continues, the tries to start writing itself out of a genre results in an irregular narrative structure. You never identify with the father enough to care about him, which is clearly a flaw in the writing.

Encounter is a documentary that explores the complexities of American culture. Malik authorises his teenage kid to drive and use a pistol as he drags and limps through ghost towns, empty houses, and frontier settlements. This may encourage aggressive behaviour and reactions in children and teens, as the events shown in the video demonstrate.
