Working in their garage, indie entrepreneurs Madeline and Owen discover the secret of time travel. There’s only one hitch: a bug in the code creates a new copy of Madeline at the same time every day.I stumbled upon the 2022 sci-fi horror comedy “Madelines” without ever having heard about it. So of course I sat down to watch it and see what writers Brea Grant and Jason Richard Miller had to offer, because I will admit that the movie’s synopsis definitely sounded interesting.And while the concept idea behind this movie actually was interesting and clever enough, then director Jason Richard Miller just didn’t manage to put out a movie that was overly entertaining to me. The movie’s narrative was just too slow paced and too little of any worth or interest happened as the movie made snail pace. So it was a difficult movie to endure and sit through.As I mentioned above, then I liked the concept of the storyline, but one thing was script and idea, while another thing was transition to screen and bringing the story to life. I just have to say that “Madelines” was a swing and a miss for me.The acting performances in the movie were adequate. It was a really, really small cast ensemble, so the performers had to do exceptionally well to carry the movie. Unfortunately they had the script and the narrative working against them.Visually then “Madelines” was mediocre. It wasn’t, however, a movie that was relying too much on special effects. And a good thing actually, because the special effects weren’t exactly outstanding or grand.I am sure that there is an audience out there for a movie such as “Madelines”. I just happened to not be a part of that audience.My rating of “Madelines” lands on a generous three out of ten stars.
