Coherence Review

Coherence (2013) Movie Review By Steven Wilkins


Director: James Ward Byrkit
Writers: James Ward Byrkit (screenplay by), James Ward Byrkit (story by)
Stars: Emily Baldoni, Maury Sterling, Nicholas Brendon

Eight friends get together for a social gathering amongst each other. During the night a comet passes which seems to cause a bit of “disruption in the force” if you will. As the night progresses, more and more bizarre events take place causing a mental stir amidst everyone involved. Until sunrise they’re seemingly at the mercy of whatever the night delivers.

This isn’t the most complex story and the delivery could be taken in the wrong light as being too slow but overall the payoff works and the pacing really isn’t so bad. The cast does well to showcase paranoia and the writing is pretty good. Not a must see but worth the time and bowl of popcorn.
