Sententiousness can be enjoyable when it's intentional and dispensed in small doses. "Synchronicity" gets the dosage wrong.

A dialogue-heavy genre exercise that's smart about the philosophical implications of messing with the timeline but sophomoric when it comes to telling a good story.

Synchronicity is more contraption than movie, its plot as mechanically functional as a clock, rotating characters around like gears.
A.A. Dowd, AV Club, 2016-01-21
Uncertain filmmaking and storytelling ... too often keep this dense, challenging picture from success.
