The Butterfly Effect

We watched “The Butterfly Effect” on Saturday. A movie I read about online with mixed reviews, so I didn’t really know what to expect, but still wanted to see anyways.
I knew the main idea behind the movie but didn’t know how they’d build on to it.

So, the movie is a take on the chaos theory and the concept of time travel mixed together.
The chaos theory mainly says that as much as a little change in the initial conditions can result in a big difference later, and well time travel is time travel, basically going back and forward in time.

I liked how they put the ideas together and how they came up with the time travel possibility, I thought it was rather creative.

It’s quite a good movie although it was lacking a certain something I can’t quite put my finger on. But it was still fun to watch.
The end was sort of funny and unexpected (for me that is, as other people could see it otherwise) and I liked it ending that way.

If I had to rate this movie, I’d give it 7/10 maybe.

One thought on “The Butterfly Effect”

  1. I watched this movie two weeks ago, but really couldn’t make up my mind on whether I liked it or not. I did feel like talking about it though, so a poor friend of mine had to suffer with a terribly long and incoherent email about it 🙂
    The coolest thing was the relation between the mathmatical concept “The Butterfly Effect” and the title and the plot of the movie.
