Parallels (2015)



PROS:
Fun story of dimension hopping.
Interesting method for jumping through parallel worlds.
For something I hadn’t heard of until Netflix recommended it, Parallels is surprisingly well done. The four main actors (Mark Hapka, Jessica Rothe, Eric Jungmann, Constance Wu) do a pretty good job, especially considering they are relatively unknown.



CONS:
I’m not sure if Parallels is the first episode of a series or a movie with an odd conclusion.

FINAL SAY:
Parallels, as a stand alone movie, doesn't ever peak.  It rises towards something that never comes.
However, if Parallels does become a television show, it looks promising.  Unlike Sliders, the show seems to have a tighter thread.  Both the alternate versions of people and the building itself, are plotlines that will keep the show from feeling as random as Sliders did.
