Movie Reviews

Rental at best
Tim Giunta | NJ | 07/15/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"well, i made the mistake of picking this movie up after reading the product description and coming to the conclusion that, for the price, it was a steal. for the first hour or so the movie is interesting, however *SPOILERS AHEAD* after the death of a certain key character the movie slips downhill. *END SPOILERS* even more so, i felt as if i was ripped off by the ending, which is quite predictable if you know movie cliches. this movie is a rental at best."
Not what you'd expect

"Synesthesia was a very disappointing flick. I had purchased it after reading the plot synopsis on the back, which to be honest sounded like a really great movie idea. The writers and directors must not have really understood the disease in the first place.
Synesthesia (the movie) basically is about murderer (who for some reason represents himself by some sort of elk, yes an elk) who is afflicted with the disease and is leaving messages at the crime scenes that can only be seen by other synesthesiacs. This was the main fault of the movie, the disease is unique to every person and it would not be possible for two people to have exactly the same symptoms (i.e. seeing yellow makes you smell burnt toast, looking at the number 6 makes you taste jelly beans, etc.). So the movie drags on for over two hours without anything ever really interesting happening, not even a good action or chase scene. Even when the killer leaves the "unseen" messages and the other charactor notices them nothing happens, no special effects to let you see what the charactor sees just this girl saying, "oh you see that pool of blood, well he left the letter M right there on the floor."
Synesthesia sounds very interesting and it very well could have been a great movie but I assure you it was a long waste of time."
