1hr52min (2004) Drama, sci-fi, thriller
Simply amazing. Maybe certain things could be changed (ironically) but it’s perfect as it is. Don’t know how I missed this for soo long. Phenomenal. I hope this review makes at least one extra person watch this. Deep, dark, funny, thought provoking. Watch it and thank me later. Seriously I’m very legit so trust what I say. – v-12882 (IMDB User – 10/10)
The greatest film Ashton Kutcher was ever apart of. In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive and/small change in a nonlinear system that can result in important differences later. This film captures this concept perfectly crossing between dramatic choices and psychological films. It holds every I love in storytelling and already have to say that I highly recommend it if you have not heard about it before.
Re-writing the description of the plot, the main character experiences blackouts during significant events of his life. Remembering his lost memories documented in his journal, he changes reality itself. I do not want to give out spoilers but it becomes tragic as alternative worlds are open to him if changes a choice made from history. That is vague enough to not ruin all the following twists and turns.
The only negatives I can mention it may be a bit dated today although I have not re-watched in a while. Regardless I am gonna rate it a little higher than it is currently on IMDB and other places. The philosophical nature is engaging enough where are scenes mostly delivers. Overal Ashton is very impressive with his acting performance and making choices in being realistic in this particular sci-fi idea.
