Leo Brady reviews “Synchronic” on AMovieGuy.com

The writing and directing team of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead continues to reach new heights and what’s impressive about their newest film- Synchronic– is that they have a bigger budget and still manage to keep their form. Their first feature was Resolution, followed by their breakout hit Spring, and then The Endless proved they were not a fluke. The natural progression leads to having a pair of big stars in Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie as their leads, but what Synchronic manages to do is be an excellent narrative mixture of time travel and characters contemplating life. It’s about two New Orleans paramedics, Dennis (Dornan) and Steve (Mackie), answering a few calls of overdoses and discovering that the new synthetic drug called Synchronic is making people do messed up stuff. The drug is doing a lot more than just getting people high and when Synchronic becomes a danger to their families and lives, now the drugs are in their bloodstream.
