Cinema Crazed

It's a pretty dumb and utterly pretentious jumbled drama that is never sure what it's trying to say, or what in fact it means.

Tries hard to be affecting and mind-blowing, and sometimes it comes close.

More like "The Gag Reflex."

Assez bien dans l'ensemble, mais la fascinante prémise n'est jamais vraiment exploité à sa hauteur.

Despite a fairly upbeat ending, the ugly images dominate the film with the time/reality plot a bloody nose afterthought.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Cool theories...don't necessarily guarantee good stories...[even if Ashton Kutcher] is repeatedly punk'd by the space-time continuum.

Walks a super-thin line between horrific believability and hilarious unbelievability.

Dumb fun, thy name is Ashton.

Cinema em Cena

Pena que a dupla de roteiristas não pôde realizar façanha semelhante à do herói e voltar no tempo a fim de rever suas decisões: o último ato do filme merecia uma nova chance.

If you want plot twists and mind-bending, just stick to 'The Usual Suspects' and 'Memento'

a true original - and while it quite possibly contains as many holes as its protagonist's memory, half the fun is finding your way through them.

Lobotomised entertainment that's dark, violent, and hilariously dumb.

An exercise in ponderous gloom and doom.

Shadows on the Wall

Scary and disturbing, but also somewhat simple-minded and repetitive.

The Butterfly Effect isn't Citizen Kane, but it is far and away the best teen film that I've seen since Ghostworld... Kutcher or not.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

It's quite surprising, I would imagine, to find that one can go back in time, unusual enough almost to require an explanation in the film. These filmmakers see it differently.
