Introduction

The Butterfly Effect Movie Review Eight-year old Evan Treborn is tortured by blackouts. His worried mother takes him to the doctor but nothing is found wrong, the physician advises that Evan keeps a journal of his seizures in the hope that they will provide a clue to his condition. After 13 years Evan grown up (Ashton Kutcher) is becoming an expert in memory loss and uses the journals he wrote to help him get to the bottom of the blackouts and what they mean in "The Butterfly Effect." Evan's blackouts cannot be explained by any medical means and he follows the doctor's advice and maintains a diary of the events around any time he blacks out.

Middle

where Kayleigh's father who is a pedophile, George Miller is trying to get his daughter and Evan to perform in his porn movie. When Evan returns to the present, he and Kayleigh are in college and love each other. But, when you fix one thing, another is likely to break and he discovers that his other friends, Lenny and Kayleigh's brother Tommy don not have the best lives. This is a classic be-careful-what-you-wish-for kind of movie. Co-directors Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber have made a movie that not only entertains, but also asks us to consider the consequences of our own actions.

Conclusion

The elder characters, led by Kutcher, are required to put several spins on their characters as their lives are changed by Evan's trips back in time. The Butterfly Effect manages to move forward without confusing or losing its audience. They make the point that there are unpredictable dangers inherent on the future by making changes in the past. The ending is weak, and may be the result of the filmmakers writing themselves into a corner and not wanting to conclude things with Evan and Kayleigh reuniting, it retains a degree of going over the top, primarily because the mini stories in the movie are very much based upon true and dark themes.
