The Playlist - Jason Bailey
The kind of brainy, absorbing, all-out thrilling cinema that’s in dangerously short supply these days.
80
We Got This Covered - Matt Donato
Thrilling sci-fi exploration that ponders the melancholic state of self-worth, existence, and what it truly means to be alive.
75
Chicago Tribune - Katie Walsh
What makes Synchronic sing is the two together, zinging each other with sardonic one-liners, their conversations meandering to the cosmic and the macabre after a few whiskeys.
67
The Film Stage - Jared Mobarak
Benson and Moorhead removed all excess—great for propulsion, but a detriment to investment. Actions become almost robotic at times as their inclusion is more about advancement than character building.
63
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
Once the big twist kicks in, there’s plenty of gritty fun to be had, but patience is a hard-won virtue in genre filmmaking.
