Critics Consensus

Synchronic sets off on an intriguingly idiosyncratic sci-fi journey that should satisfy fans of Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson's earlier work.

  • [A]though the ending of Synchronic is a bit more Hollywood than I'm used to in a Benson and Moorhead film, the duo's signature narrative ingenuity and ability to spin tension seemingly out of thin air have translated fully intact.

  • Once the big twist kicks in, there's plenty of gritty fun to be had, but patience is a hard-won virtue in genre filmmaking.

  • Despite its uncanny start, Synchronic is just more normal than it might've been, and less deep.

  • Moorhead and Benson allow the viewer to do most of this symbolic unpacking, resulting in a film that resonates on a deeper level than most disposable science fiction.

  • "Synchronic" is more accomplished in its packaging than its content.

  • Synchronic, while boasting an initially intriguing time travel story, ultimately plays out in a disappointingly conventional way.
