The Butterfly Effect may be a little too unconventional to succeed with a mass audience, but filmgoers claiming they want 'something different' from Hollywood ought to take note. Instead, looks like he read a review of the movie and wrote the script based on that. His time traveling episodes account for the frequent blackouts he experienced as a child, since those are the moments that his adult self occupied his consciousness, such as the moment his father strangled him when he realized that Evan shared his time-traveling affliction. The movie was 75 minutes long. With a limited temporal scope, the story of this movie isn't as intertwined as the first.
The wilful trashing of a franchise is the worst possible sin. The worst fault is the slowness of the script, being long in each alternative reality. Finally, spite of my comments and the rest of the comments you might still want to watch the movie. This movie, to put it bluntly is terrible when compared to the first. I have seen comments that it is hard to follow which I disagree with completely. Pity as i was hoping of soooo much from this film Did the guy that made this even watch the first one? However, his time-traveling attempts to alter the past and save his one true love have unexpected and dire consequences. But then, when he discovered his powers, he used them to fix everything that wasn't perfect, and, of course it went from bad to worse.
It actually has a really good message at the end. Such fears were more than confirmed. Their is no point paying 4 bucks to rent this garbage. He then returns to the present in a new version of reality. The movie wasn't a sequel but a re-attempt of the original. The beginning was very slow.
Eight years later in , Evan exits an office building and passes by Kayleigh on the street. Again, remember the first movie - burning of a dog, dynamite in a box, visit at Lenny's room in hospital etc. The only difference with 2 is new faces, hair-cuts and no originality. When the movie comes out I highly recommend you pick it up. Evan awakens in a college dorm room, where Lenny is his roommate. The film draws heavily on flashbacks of the characters' lives at ages 7 and 13, and presents several alternative present-day outcomes as Evan attempts to change the past, before settling on a final outcome. I guess that can be explained by the fact that the baby was already conceived and was in the photo as a fetus.
The sequel is a smart and most likely successful attempt to capitalize on the vague memory of the first. One year later, Nick suffers a blinding headache and nosebleed at work, while presenting an important sales pitch to investors. One thing I should add is that everything happens too fast. When Nick Larson Eric Lively loses his beautiful girlfriend, Julie Miller Erica Durance , in an accident, his successful career and happy life are shattered. To sum things up: Even if you can get a hold of the movie for free, don't.
Sure enough, he finds himself at the party. Do you really have so much money that you are happy to throw it down the drain like this. For everyone who loves this type of somehow confusing thrillers based in one's mind, this is a good choice to see. If you like the first one, don't see it in any circumstance, if you hate it, don't see it and you will be saved from horrible film, and finally, if you don't see the first, don't see it and spend 1 hour and a half with something more useful. Anyway, this new movie is a nightmare.
It would appear the director of this film has not even seen the first one, considering the frequent mistakes, and plot jumps. The title refers to the , a popular hypothetical situation which illustrates how small initial differences may lead to large unforeseen consequences over time. He ultimately reaches the conclusion that he and his friends might not have good futures as long as he keeps altering the past, and he realizes that he is hurting them rather than helping. One main problem with the whole concept is that he bounces back and forth skipping some critical parts of his history. The Butterfly Effect 2 is about a twenty-something guy that inherits a gift from his father. Not too much expectations, since it is a sequel and the stars are unknown.
Struggling to carry on and wracked by guilt, Nick eventually discovers that he can travel into the past, and he uses this ability to prevent Julie from dying. Oh boy was I wrong. Did they cut the budget on this movie during filming? Kayleigh is then seen as a child in the new timeline having chosen to live with her mother instead of her father, and a montage suggests that the lives of the other childhood characters have become loving and less tragic. This sequel follows the life of a young man who journeys back in time in order to solve the mystery surrounding his high school girlfriend's death. If they did see it, I'm guessing they saw some terrible bootleg version. Leonetti should stick to cinematography. I've seen episodes of Smallville with bigger budgets than what this must have cost.
One year later, Nick finds that he can travel in time and tries to fix the past, with tragic consequences for the future. In a series of flickering flashbacks that run during the end credits, an unidentified man who is presumably Nick's own father is shown grappling with mental illness -presumably brought on by the progressive brain damage that the time-traveling causes to its user with each use -and eventually committing suicide. If you like, you can watch Smallville where she plays Lois. . The film won the Pegasus Audience Award at the , and was nominated for Best Science Fiction Film at the and Choice Movie: Thriller in the , but lost to and , another film from , respectively.
The director couldn't even reproduce the original effect where Ashton went into his past. So, he died in a car crash, allowing Trevor and Amanda to stay as they are and Julie to raise their son, who possibly inherited some of his father's abilities. As this is a sequel, the tension was missing and the guy even didn't have blackouts at all. Therefore, he was never there to change the timeline in the first place and this explains why Evan's mother had two still-born children before him: since their father had the same gift which led him to be convicted as mentally unstable, the three killed themselves in the same way to avoid harming those around them. This sequence, frankly, it's not even half of the first movie starred by Ashton Kutcher.
