Beware the spoilers (as always)! If you havent seen Butterfly Effect and are planning on it, dont read past the cut.
Yesterday I watched The Butterfly Effect with my friend Mattie.Wow."If anyone finds this, it means my plan didn't work and I'm already dead. But if I can somehow go back to the beginning of all of this, I might be able to save her..."
Most people know Ashton Kutcher
as the idiot from That Seventies Show and the smartass from Punk'd. This is the first serious role I've ever seen him in, at it was fucking amazing. If for nothing else, see this movie for Ashton Kutcher, because this movie is the first time I've ever felt compelled to respect him.
The main charachter, Evan, is played in three stages; seven year old Evan, thirteen year old Evan, and 20 year old Evan
. All three actors were fantastic
, especially the seven year old, who was very convincing in later scenes.
The premise of the movie relates to Chaos Theory
. Incase you didn't know, Chaos Theory is a rather abstract theory about boundries and amounts and lots of other hard to explain things. An example is this: Chaos Theory states that something as small as the flap of a butterfly's wing
could create a typhoon somewhere else in the world. Since the movie is based on an abstract concept, its a hard movie to grasp the first time you watch it. Thats why I suggust rental
, and if you like it, buy the goddamn movie
The acting is good
, the script is amazing
, there are cliffhangers and mysteries
and angst and a whole lot of morbid ass shit
that goes down. If you're squeamish
or anything, dont
check this out.
The main charachter, Evan
, suffers from memory lapses he inherited from his father
, whose in a mental institution. After going seven years without a blackout, he looks back in some old journals and sets off a chain of irreversible events
... that eventually leads to the ultimate sacrifice
. Check This Shit Out!( Read more...Collapse )
*You probably shouldn't read the comments if you haven't seen the movie. That just occured to me. o_x
