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.
January 26, 2006
This ambitious but frustrating timeshift thriller never quite manages to jam together two distinct stories.
July 21, 2005
Why gripe about a few minor inconsistencies? Just relax and enjoy the show.
December 31, 2003
Features plenty of soft-focus, picture-perfect, father-and-son baseball scenes, an enormous amount of plot, and not quite enough of anything else.
June 18, 2002
A fairly wonderful movie about fathers and sons and the mystery of time.

Movies sometimes end up looking like a head-on collision between opposing impulses. Frequency is that kind of movie.
April 17, 2001
For the most part, Frequency works, and works well.
January 1, 2000
Frequency submits itself for our approval as a solid thriller, if not necessarily a timeless one.
January 1, 2000
My head says Frequency has a 31/2-star first half and 21/2-star second half, averaging out to three stars. But my heart says: Don't miss this one.

Not only does the film benefit from that 'what if?' fascination of being able to change fate, but it allows Quaid and Caviezel to do some effective emotional button-pushing without pushing their luck.
January 1, 2000
What makes Frequency work despite is shamelessness is the surreal aura that imbues almost every scene with a sense of heightened feeling.
January 1, 2000
Like The Sixth Sense, Frequency does a good job of compelling us to suspend disbelief and cynicism -- mostly by investing us in the characters.
January 1, 2000
A thriller that actually thrills.
January 1, 2000
A fantasy about fate and family, it's a treat for time-warp-movie fans who've been jonesing for another fix.
January 1, 2000
There is enough that's off-center and just downright different in the film to keep one's antenna up.
January 1, 2000
Well-navigated and ultimately moving.
January 1, 2000
Frequency is often reminiscent of Spielberg at his most mawkish -- and at his most affecting.
January 1, 2000
The movie's whole concept is ludicrous, hard to accept even on its own contrived terms. But if you are willing to suspend disbelief, the film is enjoyable.

Has so little faith in its Twilight Zone-ish yarn that it resorts to a pulpy serial-killer subplot to juice the mumbo-jumbo.
