I'm writing a paper about a sci-fi movie and one of my criteria for the movie being a good movie is the possibility of reality. How can I say the movie has a never ending thrill with the possibility of reality without actually saying possibility of reality?

Use plausibility

"having an appearance of truth or reason; seemingly worthy of approval or acceptance; credible; believable: a plausible excuse; a plausible plot."
