It's an appealingly out-there premise that's employed to perpetually captivating effect by filmmaker Gregory Hoblit...
December 24, 2010
Scary, tense, grisly mystery-thriller.
September 24, 2010
Gregory Hoblit's best film generates Spielbergian fascination with temporal drama of twisting timelines, infused with personal conflict and situational tension. It blends "Back to the Future's" rush with "Backdraft's" firefighting and a dash of "Zodiac."
June 6, 2007
Quaid's buoyant earnestness complements the stunning, low-key performance by Caviezel, whose close-ups give new meaning to the idea that still waters run deep.
September 30, 2005
Good action, lots of suspense, Dennis Quaid, and an intriguing Time Travel concept. What more could you ask?
July 21, 2005
Why gripe about a few minor inconsistencies? Just relax and enjoy the show.
April 9, 2005
An intelligent science fiction thriller that also happens to be a solid father/son movie. It's entertainment aimed at the adult, not teen, audience and squarely hits the mark. Forgive the Hollywood ending.
May 30, 2003
Creates an ingenious twist for the time travel story.
May 14, 2003
Director Gregory Hoblit has managed to bypass the bulk of the schmaltz and inject real tension.
October 15, 2002
The plot may be out-and-out absurd. But the action-packed script, Mr. Hoblit's fast-paced direction and the array of engaging performances made Frequency easy to embrace.

...better executed than conceived
June 23, 2002
a combination fantasy/tearjerker/thriller with several dizzying twists. It's the first screenplay of former film industry executive Noah Emmerich, and it all but overflows with imagination, suspense and big ideas.
June 18, 2002
A fairly wonderful movie about fathers and sons and the mystery of time.
May 8, 2002
Touches upon the profound human longing to escape the constraints of time, to see the wrongs and mistakes of the past somehow set right, redeemed.
March 13, 2002
A psychological thriller about the deepening of a father-son relationship.
March 8, 2002
The film succeeds because it chooses to focus on the human side of the story.

For the most part, Frequency works, and works well.
February 27, 2001
A satisfying thriller because it is about something more than just the mechanics of its plot. It has a good story and characters to go along with the suspense, which makes it that much more interesting and involving.
