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

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.

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.

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.

Kutcher brings a necessary lightness to his role as the guy who seems to make things happen around him, but doesn't want to.

Bress & Gruber dole out their surprises with a calm confidence that belies their relative inexperience.

The filmmakers defy audience expectations and keep suspense building by continually creating new crises for Evan to resolve.

A good starting point for a movie that could have been even better if not for the lackluster efforts from those involved.

Consistently thoughtful and occasionally surprising--which, in the traditional January movie wasteland, is no small feat.

Kutcher is perfectly serviceable in his first dramatic role after stints on TV's That '70s Show and in one-note laffers Dude, Where's My Car? and My Boss's Daughter.

The Butterfly Effect is just a puzzle, but it's a clever one.
