Likeable story about a sort of supernatural connection via ham radio between a dead father and his now grown son. Strange idea but it works most of the time due to Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel, who is especially good as the troubled son. In fact, I would have liked to see more of why he was troubled.
Frequency is a movie you can relax, turn your brain off and enjoy multiple times. Loved it when it first came out and when it was on tv this weekend I made sure to revisit and enjoyed just as much. Quaid and Caveziel are awesome.
A fascinating and absorbing story with characters that really gel. It takes a bit of a left turn at the traffic lights with the whole murder mystery element thrown in half way through but nevertheless it works and is a movie I return to at least every couple of years. The ending has some typical time travel movie issues and is all tied up a little too neatly perhaps. I'd have prefered the originally intended ending myself as it avoids some ilogicality and is slightly cleverer. Either way, still a great movie.
A young man finds an old ham radio and soon picks up a transmitted voice of his deceased firefighter dad. The second half seems stretched as if the writers were stuck with how to make the film complete and interesting. But, for the most part, the end result is entertaining.
One of my all-time favorite movies!! Every time I see it, I can't change the channel. Dennis Quaid is perfect in it. Such a fantastic father/son movie. My favorite time travel movie. Just perfect all around. I can't say enough good things about it. I love it.
