A thoughtful existential sci-fi stops time by streaming


If we completely ignore his recurring role as Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Sam Wilson, who has now seen the former Falcon evolve into the new Captain America, then Anthony Mackie’s filmography would show that there are two things he loves above all else.

We’re talking about science fiction and Netflix originals, of course. In fact, the actor has shown up in that, Black mirror, Altered carbonsecond season, and Outside the cord alone in the last few years, which tick both of the aforementioned fields.

Outside the world’s most popular streaming service, Mackie was recently spotted in Amazon’s star-studded anthology series Soloerwithout even mentioning previous excursions in The customization agency or Real steel. However, the best sci-fi project he has ever appeared in is one that hovers under the radar like an underrated gem; Aaron Moorhead and Justin Bensons Synchronous.


Mackie and Jamie Dornan star as two longtime best friends and paramedics who keep being called to a series of inexplicable and very bloody crime scenes. After the former’s daughter disappears, however, it turns out that everything is connected, and the very substance of time, space, and reality turns out to be more malleable than anyone might have thought.

According to FlixPatrol, Synchronous has enjoyed a resurgence on Netflix a year after being released on VOD, after landing on the platform’s global most watched list, an impressive broadcast that includes a few Top 5 rankings.
