The Butterfly Effect review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 10/12/12

"I think I can fix this." A typical "what if?" picture that makes one ponder in the end. Definitely not for everyone's taste because of the direction/plot, this critic absorbed and understood it with glee since it had the appropriate mix of wit, humor and drama. Evan Treborn (Ashton Kutcher) suffers from blackouts and will eventually affect his friends Kayleigh (Amy Smart), brother Tommy and Lenny. His mother Andrea (Melora Walters) had him checked and explains the history of his father. Best quotes from the flick: Jason - "You can't change who people are without destroying who they were." "You can't play God." Andrea - "These things take time." Tommy - "I know it's hard but you can't give-up." Screenplay and pace were engaging and thought-provoking. Direction and soundtrack were splendid while the performances earnest. Butterfly Effect is an underrated gem about choices, memories, trying to change others, love, friendships and making things right. It composes of an innovative premise mirroring life to movies where one can pause and rewind. Definitely worth re-watching for not only for its subliminal messages, but its entertainment value as well.
