I haven’t yet decided if Synchronic is a better film than The Endless. On one hand, the premise isn’t quite as complex and the story occasionally relies on some contrivances to push it along. On the other hand, it’s more emotionally engaging – thanks to well-realized characters and dialogue – with technical merits that are a considerable improvement. Either way, Benson & Moorhead have put together another intriguing sci-fi film that favors smarts over spectacle.
In London, the Czechoslovak government-in-exile resolved to kill Heydrich. Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan) and Jozef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) headed the team chosen for the operation. Trained by the British Special Operations Executive (SOE), the pair returned to the Protectorate, parachuting from a Handley Page Halifax.
