Description

When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality—and the flow of time itself.

    Wanted to like it, but it was so dark and muddled that it was hard to see and hear in spots. I think the acting was good, but I think so much more attention was given to mood and settings that the dialog and story flow suffered. Many times it was hard to hear what the charactes were saying. Lighting too dark at times. Scenes cut in ways that left me unsure of what I'd just seen. The story itself was slow at the start. Dennis and Steve, best frieds and paramedics, wouldn't exactly be the people I'd hope responded to my needs. They were casual in response, slow, and I wondered at times if they actually knew what they were doing. While their lives are meant to be a contrast, Dennis was just too whinny, and by the end I just wanted him to wake up to how blessed he'd been in life. He had what Steve has always been looking for, but couldn't enjoy it. Dennis is the type to be unhappy in everything he did that I had trouble seeing why Steve liked him. The ending was predictable, but still felt unfinished. A hint as to what happened to them both after the ending would have been better. Not worth sitting through again.

    Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan did a great acting job. Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson films will not disappoint you especially Synchronic. The soundtrack scoring what attracted me to this and I made the purchase because usually the soundtrack let you know if a film got substance to me. Listening on Apple Music I was deeply intrigued. After watching I wasn’t disappointed. The story/score is better than most films with budget of $100 Million+. Waiting for next project. Also want to catch Anthony Mackie next projects. He also did the character justice to the point reminded me of someone I know. Good film, talented people involved.
  • So freaking good!

    Morehead and Benson did it again! I absolutely LOVED “Spring” along with “Resolution” and “The Endless”. This was my favorite of their work that I’ve seen so far. The soundtrack was perfect and fit so well. I wanted this movie to keep going and you know dang well it could’ve. Maybe they’ll continue the story in another movie. I really hope so, at least.

    This movie is so bad from acting to script and the story as a whole - the ending is just ridiculous

    Starts slow and comes across as Noir but it was touching and fun. Worth the watch. Mackey was great as always.
  • Fantastic!
