This film deserves a gold plaque in the plague of summer stink bombs. . .

The film's temporal ineptitude would give Doc Brown a seizure, suggesting that an evolutionary mishap alters some creatures but conveniently leaves our bland heroes -- and Ben Kingsley's silly wig -- completely unchanged.

Based on the Ray Bradbury short story of the same name, this is a colassal disapopintment - unworthy of the memorable source material.

The special effects are on par with a basic film you'd see about a giant squid on the Sci-Fi Channel, and the story is just as boring.

The film is full of rumbling sounds that will make your innards tremble (at least in some theaters). But that's about all it has going for it.

Good idea unsuccessfully realised with Ed Burns doing his best.

A catastrophe of bad acting, ludicrous science and conspicuously cheap special effects that can't even follow its own internal logic from one scene to the next.

There's plenty of room to poke holes in the premise, but folks willing to suspend disbelief can still have a good time.

About the best that can be said for it is that it might be appreciated ages hence as purest camp. Frankly, I'm not willing to wait around long enough to find out.

As a time-travel story, A Sound of Thunder doesn't exactly rewrite genre history; rather, it's an authentic blast from the past, an unpretentious B-movie.

A interessantíssima premissa é desperdiçada pelo roteiro capenga, as atuações sem vida, os efeitos visuais constrangedores e pela direção surpreendentemente amadora de Hyams.

Is A Sound of Thunder a great movie? Not even close.

This film will be a real disappointment for its lack of logic and even the misunderstanding of the original story.

Ed Burns, Catherine McCormack and Ben Kingsley aren't aiming for Oscars, or even accolades, with their performances, but their choices make this over-budgeted B-movie fun to watch.
September 29, 2005
Lobotomized from a Ray Bradbury short story, A Sound of Thunder stars Edward Burns as a scientist (insert raucous laughter here)...

At the risk of making an overly broad and limiting generalization, it's generally wise to make sure an action movie's plot has actually kicked into gear by the time the first hour has elapsed.

It's somehow refreshing to know that the spirit, if not the flesh, of Edward D. Wood Jr. lives on.

Bradbury-inspired time-travel sci-fi flick is bad, boring and bland -- in every possible way.

There's very little in this Jurassic dork of a movie that works.
