      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Shift's solid cast and intriguing premise are steadily squandered by its jumbled story's unsuccessful attempt to put a sci-fi spin on the Book of Job.

      Audience Says

      The Shift works as an edge-of-your-seat thriller as well as an uplifting story about considering the consequences of your actions.

      Peter Debruge Variety Heasley first made “The Shift” as a 21-minute short, and there’s just enough here to support a feature. Dec 2, 2023 Full Review Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter As the storyline endlessly and confusingly shifts from one reality to another, it’s all too easy to tune out until we encounter one that’s interesting. Alas, that never happens. Nov 30, 2023 Full Review Noah Berlatsky Chicago Reader A remarkably incoherent farrago of sci-fi tropes and Christian proselytizing. Nov 29, 2023 Full Review Shikhar Verma High on Films The film starts smashing its smart sci-fi concept to smithereens by instead peddling some extremely inept faith-based propaganda your way. Feb 18, 2024 Full Review Pete Vonder Haar Houston Press As silly revolutionary parables go, it's less ridiculous than Arnold Schwarzenegger leading Dweezil Zappa in an uprising against the host of Family Feud. Or Mel Gibson driving Scotland to capital F "freedom" before siring Edward III with Queen Isabella. Rated: 2/5 Jan 25, 2024 Full Review Matthew Turner Action Reloaded This is a watchable sci-fi thriller, enlivened by strong performances and some nice ideas, but it fails to satisfy on a dramatic or emotional level Rated: 2/5 Dec 27, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Rose The devil tempts us all the time and this reveals his lies. Excellent acting throughout. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/24 Full Review Ivan G Refreshing new take on the story of Job. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review Lawrence W I really enjoyed this move and love the message. Like the Sci-Fi twist. Neal McDonough was amazing what a great actor. Definitely recommend this movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review Stewart E I had no idea that this would be a religious movie. I expected it to be similar to Quantum Leap on tv. It was a deep movie and I thought that it was well done. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Marissa I liked the movie a lot. There is a lot of deep thought into it. I can see a nonbeliever maybe not understanding the movie. Its a great movie and I want to see it again. Go watch it!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Tommy Demonstrates how society has become self absorbed and needs to get back to a religious mentality Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
