But after helping the boy escape, he comes to the terrifying conclusion that he's the kidnapper. Even more startling, five years have passed since he was last awake.

Critic Reviews for The Anomaly

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3)

There's infinitely more than one anomaly to be found in "The Anomaly," a thoroughly nonsensical futuristic sci-fi thriller that makes a case for the perils of vanity projects.

September 24, 2015 | Full Review…

A smug, risible and far-from-anomalous attempt to beat Hollywood at its own game, from a talent whose commendable reach continues to exceed his grasp.

Has Noel Clarke directed this baffling, unconvincing sci-fi just to show the world his chiselled, rock-hard pecs?

Apparently, the only thing you have to do to make your film look futuristic is slap superfluous blue lights on everything.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Noel Clarke never shuns an opportunity to show off his buff body but displays little of the intelligence or flair needed to pull off his film's mind-stretching conceits.

October 28, 2014 | Full Review…

It's a nifty idea - especially in terms of structure - but that's about it, with Clarke's direction proving as flat as his performance.
