Movie Info

Traumatized ex-soldier Reeve (Clarke) wakes up in the back of a moving van alongside a young boy (Parkinson) held prisoner. But after helping the boy escape, he comes to the terrifying conclusion that he's the kidnapper. Even more startling, five years have passed since he was last awake. Ryan soon learns that he's caught up in a futuristic conspiracy known as "Anomaly," Ryan's only connection with reality is the dogged pursuit of Ryan by the elegant but sinister Harkin Langham (Somerhalder), who -when he's not trying to kill Ryan - explains how to survive his blackouts, lasting exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds. -- (C) Anchor Bay

Critic Reviews for The Anomaly

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4) | Rotten (17)

  • There's infinitely more than one anomaly to be found in "The Anomaly," a thoroughly nonsensical futuristic sci-fi thriller that makes a case for the perils of vanity projects.

    Sep 24, 2015 | Full Review…
  • A smug, risible and far-from-anomalous attempt to beat Hollywood at its own game, from a talent whose commendable reach continues to exceed his grasp.

  • Admittedly, in director/star Noel Clarke's low-budget sci-fi actioner, the acting and script do provoke surprise: both are so bad, you find yourself wondering if what's unfolding is some kind of parody.

    Jul 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Has Noel Clarke directed this baffling, unconvincing sci-fi just to show the world his chiselled, rock-hard pecs?

  • Apparently, the only thing you have to do to make your film look futuristic is slap superfluous blue lights on everything.

    Nov 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…
  • Noel Clarke never shuns an opportunity to show off his buff body but displays little of the intelligence or flair needed to pull off his film's mind-stretching conceits.
