Review: The Butterfly Effect

Movie: The Butterfly Effect (2004)
My Rating: Thumbs Up

This was a fun Memento-like brain-twister. Ashton Kutcher plays a guy with a screwed-up childhood who discovers he can go back in time to try to fix things that went wrong. His shifting through alternate realities while retaining memory of them was entertaining. I kept trying to guess what would end up happening as a result of the changes he made (but was usually off). The director's cut ending was downright bone-chilling and I prefer that to the theatrical version (more palatable to mainstream audiences), although it's a matter of taste. Buy or rent the DVD and check out both endings.
