2.5/4 

A strong time-travel and wish fulfilment concept, reasonably well handled with two likeable leads. The rather hysterical and illogical ending lets it down however, but definitely worth a look.

The usual thriller plus an interesting premise and good execution. Contains some actual emotion and suspenseful moments.

A little heavy on exposition, but this film does manage to walk an entertaining line between heartfelt emotion (loved the father & son dialogue scenes) and thrilling action. The premise itself is very original and suspension of belief is anchored by the two lead actors.

3/4 

A surprisingly well-made drama with a sci-fi twist that works. It takes a low-key approach and keeps building and building. The idea may not be original, but the presentation makes it seem fresh.

Underated Thriller that keeps you interested!

Based on a clever premise, wonderfully photographed and scored, and seamlessly edited, "Frequency" is a near perfect package of suspense and "feel-good". Quaid, Caviezel and all the players gave very believable and intriguing performances and plot twists kept me glued to the set in the last 2/3 of the movie. Similar to "Sixth Sense", for hours after, I was remembering scenes in the movie, and piecing them together to understand even more of the nuances in the plot. And the fascinating idea of "reaching back in time to control your own destiny" was very similar to the premise of the recent bestseller "Replay" by Ken Grimwood. "Frequency" is a truly wonderful film that NewLine Cinema unfortunately forgot to put on the "major promotional" bandwagon.
