Two Line Reviews - #283

Movie: The Butterfly Effect (2004)

Plot: A man inherits from his grandfather & father, the supernatural power of getting back to his past through memories. He experiences tumultous mental pressure every time he revisits his past. To correct things that altered the course of several of his closed ones' lives, he attempts to go back again & again experiencing counter productive results! Finally, he does the unthinkable.

  • For a Sci-fi film, the theory depicted was only marginally convincing but the film had its share of suspenseful moments.
  • Ashton Kutcher, in his roles of the troubled whiz/wasted guy, does a neat job. The support from the rough kid friend and the others are worth a mention.
The Chaos theory definition shown in the title has no relevance to this film. Atleast, to me, it appeared that way.

Sci fi suspense,Good in parts.
