“I hadnu0026#39;t even heard about this 2019 movie titled u0026quot;Synchronicu0026quot; before now in 2021, as I had the chance to sit down and watch it. I read the synopsis for the movie and it sounded like it could be something worthwhile watching. So I gave the movie a chance.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd yeah, u0026quot;Synchronicu0026quot; definitely was watchable, but it wasnu0026#39;t an impressive movie. The storyline was just way too generic and predictable. It felt like writer Justin Benson was opting for the easiest way for constructing a storyline for the movie. Everything was just so linear and running on auto-pilot. So I canu0026#39;t really claim to have been blown away by the storyline told in u0026quot;Synchronicu0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eActually I would say that the movieu0026#39;s directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead set up a whole lot of things that had potential, but ultimately they failed to bring them to fruition, and it just felt half-hearted. There definitely was potential to be found in the movie, but it was just wasted as nothing felt thoroughly explored, explained or exposed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting in the movie was good, but the actors and actresses just didnu0026#39;t have an overwhelming amount of material to work with, so it felt like it was semi-hindered performances.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy rating of u0026quot;Synchronicu0026quot; lands on a very bland and mediocre five out of ten stars. The movie is good enough for a single viewing, if you enjoy linear sci-fi movies. But the contents of the storyline just were far too feeble to support more than a single viewing. u0026quot;Synchronicu0026quot; came and went without leaving much of any ripples in the fabric of time and space.”
