A Sound of Thunder

Critics Consensus

Choppy logic and uneven performances are overshadowed by not-so-special effects that makes the suspension of disbelief a nearly impossible task.

    bad special effects and badly made sci film. how this film fails is beyond me, I just can't believe the budget for this trash

    When I first read Ray Bradbury's masterful short story, I immediately thought "this would make a great movie." So naturally, when I first saw that this was coming out, I was immensely excited. Boy, was I in for a shock. While watching this, I was literally speechless at how bad it was. The special effects were transparent, the performances were flat, and the dialogue is terrible (ANOTHER TIME WAVE IS COMING!!!! ZOMG!!!!). Of all the book adaptations Hollywood has screwed up, this has to be one of the worse ones.

    This movie had a good concept that could have set it up for some great action sequences and ohhh moments but it isnt done justice here. Firstly I dont mind new actors like in the recent district 9 but I didnt really care for these ones. Also the special affects are really bad for the timing and the action is quite poor. Overall it has some good parts and the story is ok but it could be so much better.
