The Butterfly Effect Reviews
January 17, 2016
The movie tries to be too visceral, and it just comes out as being repugnant

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

A ludicrous supernatural thriller, packed with clichs, heavy-handed symbolism, stupid dialogue and over-acting.

somewhere in Asia a few years back, a fruit fly passed gas and unwittingly began an inexorable string of circumstances that has now resulted in Ashton Kutcher becoming a star.
