Synchronic (2020)



Critic Consensus: Synchronic sets off on an intriguingly idiosyncratic sci-fi journey that should satisfy fans of Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson's earlier work.

Movie Info

When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis's oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality--and the flow of time itself.

Critic Reviews for Synchronic

All Critics (155) | Top Critics (27)

Mackie and Dornan do their best with their intrepid characters (though Dornan is sidelined for much of the time), while the women have little opportunity to register as interesting characters.

February 26, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Less successfully realized is the bond between the two heroes. Dornan is not as badly miscast here as he was in Fifty Shades of Grey, but Dennis is never a terribly engaging character.

February 10, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A sci-fi inflected story...this might be the least successful of the creators' films, it does look a bit on the cheap...the initial idea is really interesting, but when you get down to it, it's a straight-to-video B movie...

February 8, 2021 | Full Review…

By turns gloomy (heavy shadows, ominous score) and deeply goofy (see plot premise), the film is underpinned by some easygoing chemistry between the co-leads, Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan.

January 29, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Shot with a doleful urban grittiness, Synchronic suggests one of Philip K Dick's narcotised mind-benders spliced with the existential gloom of Scorsese's Bringing Out the Dead.

January 28, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A smart indie sci-fi which has much to say and some great ideas, all wrapped up in a designer-drug-based premise that makes it sound less interesting than it actually is.

January 26, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
