Storyline

Homicide detective Sean Nault, a cop on a parallel Earth whose technology is powered exclusively by magic. Sean investigates a baffling series of murders committed by a means he's never seen before: science. With the aid of Lenoir, a member of the ridiculed subculture of "pragmatists" who believe science is more than the stuff of myths & children's stories, and the 130-year-old sorcerer Winston Churchill, Sean uncovers an ominous plot that will lead him to another dimension and the realization that, unless he prevents it, both earths could well be destroyed.

Entertaining, if Not Great Fantasy
8 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

8 November 2017. The idea of a world based on magic and intersecting with a world like ours based on science has an intriguing appeal to it. This movie attempts to present such a parallel portrait of such a universe. There is a good measure of magicality to Kevin Sorbo's world here, nevertheless, the presentation is more along the lines of a two-hour television pilot movie for a hoped for series. The storyline is pretty basic with a twist or two and it flows pretty well together.

What's missing is the opportunity to really introduce how both worlds would interact as well as the various counter-parts like the television series Fringe (2008-2013) accomplished or the even more cutting edge fantasy series The Magicians (2015-2016). Paradox is able to display some intriguing magic in the fashion that Demolition Man (1993) accomplished for a look in a futuristic world or the intersection between animation and the real world in Last Action Hero (1993).

Overall, Paradox is a regular crime thriller fantasy which introduces a rather fun use of comic book animation together with live action film noir in a more literal sense then Sin City (2005). Don't expect too much here and you have a good possibility of some mindless but cute, predictable entertainment.
