Storyline

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 Anonymus

Excellent, if you can follow a twisty plot
18 July 2016 | by Tim CSee all my reviews

I was quite shocked to see how low the rating was on this film, and I can only imagine it is because people struggled to keep a grasp on a self entwined looping plot. This is a wormhole based movie, so expect it to be a bit loopy.

Probably don't watch it with a girlfriend/wife who isn't in to this genre (they'll not enjoy it and will wreck it for you to by asking for explanations continually... and that would be distracting on a complicated plot which moves fairly swiftly), and it would be best enjoyed without beer (you do need to concentrate to keep up), but other than that I found it excellent.

Visually nice, the music was quite 'daft punk'/Tron in places (good on a home cinema system), the actors could act, the female lead was sexy and they tied all the pieces together. What more could you ask for.

My 10/10 is probably a bit excessive, I put it this high to try and offset the people who don't understand and have been slating it. In reality it is a solid 8.7/10: not perfect, but getting close.
