The Butterfly Effect
The Butterfly Effect
Starring Ashton Kutcher, Amy Smart, Elden Henson,
William Lee Scott, Eric Stoltz, Melora Walters

Ashton Kutcher stars in this psychological thriller that has his character jumping from one horrible situation to another.

He finds himself capable of changing one thing that can alter the outcome of different scenarios. His visions (or are they real?) have him surrounded by angry Aryans ready to viciously attack him, or waking up to find that his arms are gone, and a slew of other strange and confusing stories.

Kutcher is okay in the role, but he has a habit of furrowing his brow and scrunching up his face to express almost every emotion, that can be quite annoying.

The plot is like being caught up in a scary nightmare where you wake up, shake your head and go back to sleep, only to find yourself embroiled in another entirely different and more frightening nightmare.

I like thrillers where I'm caught off guard, or surprised, the problem with The Butterfly Effect is that it involves us in a different scene, before the preceding one has completely played out.
