An idealistic public defender (John Boyega) gets drawn into a drug heist. This convoluted exercise in moral relativism succeeds at wasting almost all of the considerable talent involved while attempting to make too many statements and also sound smart/deep/literary. Some interesting photography and Boyega's self-deprecating charm can't save this overblown, under-thought adaptation from a novel. Also, why are Olivia's Cooke's nipples visible in every shot? Once is okay, but every time is a gimmick, like this entire film.

Naked Singularity isn’t a typical courtroom drama. It’s a heist flick, a sci-fi romp, and a message film all rolled into one. And it’s a pretty terrible example of all three genres.

The uniquely underwhelming sci-fi lawyer drama Naked Singularity is a weird mashup of ill-fitting genre tropes and quarter-cooked ideas about social justice and alternate realities.

The brisk pacing and capable cast still can't quite mask a certain routine feel in a movie without much heart.
