Parallels is a 2015 sci-fi movie directed and written by Christopher Leone, released only to Netflix. It stars Mark Hapka, Jessica Rothe, Eric Jungmann and Constance Wu. They are actors we have never seen before nor the director. This is a project put on Netflix so that someone would hopefully soon turn it into a TV series continuing from the ending. I really hope they make a TV series and you will too if you have watched the movie.
The synopsis is this: a group enters an abandon downtown building which transports them to random parallel versions of Earth. Some slightly different and others a total wasteland.
The story is an intriguing one and mysterious enough. It definitely keeps you watching and waiting for answers. At times it felt like it was lingering a bit too much but during the moment I didn’t know the full picture. Without revealing, I think those times were about character development for us to know for the future of this production.
I can’t say anymore as this isn’t a normal movie but a pilot for a possible TV show. If you like sci-fi films and/or playing with the idea of parallel realities then go watch it! It definitely keeps you entertained. If you don’t have Netflix you can probably find it somewhere else online.
Thanks for reading my short review!
