Wow. Well, I've been kinda talking smack about Ford in the movies thread today, so you're probably not going to like that.
Shannon was damn good, but with some qualifiers. See other thread (in short, yeah, he stole the show, but Christian Bale, Daniel Day Lewis, Matthew Mcconaughey, and others could have nailed that part just as hard, and it would have probably gone unnoticed by the academy... a light day's work for those guys. Still, he was good.)
I have issues with other aspects of it, but it certainly wasn't bad in any way.
To say it's better as a film or as an Amy Adams fest than Arrival is... well... I disagree big time. But whatever.
