Thoughts on Plurality

ThoughtsPlurality is a sci-fi thriller that will take us into a world that matches ‘Cell’ and ‘Identity’ as we navigate a world where minds are put together to try and unlock the truth about a serial killer. It will bring us a new improved science behind it, one that will leave us in the middle of questioning nearly every moment we see in the film, trying to put our figure on just which one of the minds is in control at the time. This is what makes this one of the most captivating films of the year, constantly keeping us wanting more from each scene. The performances in the film are strong throughout, with the lead needing to pull off each mindset, while filming the sequences get to give us a flash of which character, he believes he is. The special effects are great, with the colour pallets being used to show the different environments we are going through. The one side of the film does feel weak and that is the length, as it does seem like we are about end, only for another sequences of events coming up.

Signature Entertainment presents Plurality on Digital Platforms from 19th July

Final Thoughts Plurality is a captivating thriller that will constantly keep you guessing.
