A very original and unique concept. I had vague memories of seeing clips of this film growing up, when I watched it in full for the first time I was quite stunned by the ending. When I re-watched it a couple years later, I was left pretty emotionally scarred by the alternate ending, lol.
This movie was a scene too long... The way he "corrects it all"...? Come on... I think it's a great movie, but with greater flaws. There are really disturbing moments throughout the film. The Butterfly Effect is brilliantly presented, but there was one thing I didn't like: the supernatural portion. It feels like it was created to fill a gap... which didn't exist if the movie was one scene shorter.
Yes, Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber are about as proficient at writing natural dialogue as the average Burger King employee is at performing brain-surgery with a lug-wrench while eight beers deep. That said, it's a stellar piece technically; tightly wound and filler-free. The cast is also terrific, the central idea is explored thoughtfully and the love story is moving and endearing in its idealistic elegance.
Un buon lavoro che risente troppo degli indirizzi del cinema moderno(assurdità e ipertrofia per camuffare buchi di sceneggiatura) e della sindrome del già visto(da Ritorno a Memento).Di buono ha che cmq è abbastanza scorrevole e le musiche sono azzeccate,ed almeno non ha la pretesa di imbastirci pipponi filosofici o psicologici,anche perchè i personaggi galleggiano nella mediocrità più assoluta. Da stacco e via.
