From the creators of The Signal (Sundance 2007) comes Synchronicity, a mind-bending 'Sci-fi Noir' in the tradition of Dark City, Blade Runner, and Alphaville. When physicist Jim Beale invents a machine that can fold space-time, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. He must now find the flower's identical match in the present to prove his machine works. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of a mysterious girl, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that he's fallen prey to a femme fatale trying to steal his invention, Jim travels back in time to stop her betrayal before it happens. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about the machine, the girl, and his own reality. Written by
Or does it? That's up to the viewer to decide. If you actually watch it and think it's worth your time. It mostly is pretty self explanatory and while I read a lot of Blade Runner comparisons this is closer to 12 Monkeys spiritually (no pun intended). Of course any movie attempting something in that vain will not be able to come on top of that comparison at the end.
Speaking of the end: Does it save the movie from being too predictable? Does it make sense? Do people understand it? The filmmakers thought of something and it is being discussed thoroughly, what the meaning is. Which makes this either more or less intriguing for some. It's up to you to decide if this is a movie you want to watch. For fans of the previous effort (The Signal), that's a no-Brainer of course
