Newt's movie review

The opening describes chaos theory, the whole story is about the repercussions of time travel, yet the paradoxes are completely disregarded. I was very disappointed in the lameness of the story, and really annoyed by Walters voice (was that for real?), but I was impressed by the casting of the young characters. As thrillers go, this one is light on content and completely devoid of logic so don't expect much.

Ripley's movie review

My synopsis for this movie would have read "If you could change the past, should you?".

An interesting idea with some nice twists and turns and some very disturbing scenes. Ashton was better than I expected and the young kids (particularly James) were very good. It was worth watching.
