With every film they make, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson refine their genre-bending, unapologetically cerebral style, and ‘Synchronic’ is no exception. While it does feel like a smaller step forward in terms of ambition, it isn’t a waste of time. Even if they only pull at an interesting thread and don’t fully unravel it, it’s still more unique than most other genre movies you’ll see.

Synchronic is the most conventional, “mainstream” movie Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson have made to-date and unfortunately that’s a bit of a step back.
They’re previous outings, especially their slow burn low-budget Resolution and the fantastic The Endless, are mind benders that slowly unwind the respective film’s underlying mystery. The astute viewer can figure out what’s happening in this film’s surreal prologue.
And just in case you still can’t figure it out, there’s a bit too much exposition later on to hammer it home.
Anthony Mackie is excellent. It’s hard to not subconsciously see Marvel’s Falcon, but overall he is an effective dramatic lead. The chemistry with fellow EMT Jamie Dorn is believable and authentic and adds poignancy to the films more dramatic moments.
They visit some well crafted scenes where they are called in as EMT’s, and their weary “been here, done that ” banter is effective.
While the last act is WAY too formulaic, overall it’s an entertaining flick, and if I hadn’t seen their previous outings, I probably would have enjoyed it more.
P.S. Anybody catch the Andrew Garland Annihilation synths in both the beginning and end?
Not Everyone’s Cup Of Tea, Quite Bizarre!
Well this was a strange one, the acting was sharp, the cinematography brilliant, but the plot was quite bizarre.
If your into sci-fi and mystery then this will float your boat, otherwise it’s not for you.
The ending was less than satisfactory but it is difficult to end this sort of movie.
Over-all it’s a weak 6
GREAT CONCEPT, BEWILDERINGLY AWFUL PRODUCT
This was a highly original film with a great concept. Unfortunately, every aspect of the production fell quite short of the mark.
Jamie Dornan seemed a bit bewildered and never seemed to be able to deliver his lines believably, but this was fine since the script was just awful. None of the characters were believable and their dialogue was stilted and unnatural.
Low budget shouldn’t mean low quality; this should just be an opportunity to get creative and do more with less. Sadly…they managed to do less with less.
The sole exception was the development of Anthony Mackie’s character, Steve. He came across as genuine, even if the circumstances of the story were bizarre: ( In the Antebellum South, people didn’t look or act as they were portrayed here, for starters. Blue-eyed White folk didn’t live in Louisiana during the Ice Age and Louisiana was NOT an Arctic wasteland populated by wandering mammoths ). The other characters were all throw-aways and I could care less what happened to any of them.
I would like to see this concept redone with better actors, delivering better lines and with much more attention to detail.
This was disappointing. There was one thing nagging me after I watched the film and I just now realised what it was: whatever happened to that damned shaggy dog, because I DID care what happened to it.
