Earnest but messy science fiction
7 March 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Only Christopher Lloyd's performance as a world-wearied journalist really saves this paranormal thriller from complete disaster. There's probably the germ of a very good film in here, but it is largely obscured by a storyline lacking cohesion or plausibility. Due to either poor writing or poor editing, characters and plot-lines stagger along in unlikely fashion, leading to nowhere in particular by the end of the film. Indeed, even Lloyd himself implies in the final reel that none of it really made any sense. CONVERGENCE may appeal to some X-Files fans, but only extremely unfussy ones.
