The Butterfly Effect
Directed by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber
Screenplay by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber

Here is the trailer: Trailer

The Butterfly Effect is a great Drama/Fantasy movie that will open your mind the life of Evan Treborn, played by Ashton Kutcher.  Throughout the movie Evan has random blackouts, where he cannot remember what occurred during a past moment. Since the movie is through the eyes of Evan, as the audience, we cannot see what occurred during these lost memories.  As the movie continues, Evan learns how to access these lost memories and change them.  This allows him to wake up in an altered state of reality since he has changed his past.

I believe everyone should see this movie since it allows you to see how changing your past can change your entire life. The movie also shows how each character is effected by individual decisions one makes and how you cannot always change your past.

Even though this is Ashton Kutcher's first serious acting role, I think he did a great job.  He showed emotion and portrayed his role very well.  He keeps you on the edge of your seat and allows you to empathies with his emotions throughout the movie. If your bored one weekend, go get this movie.

I was very surprised by Ashton Kutcher's performance. He really should invest more time in acting instead of doing Punk'd.

He really should. The last scene though when hes running down the hall of the psych ward, his face is so funny. Only part of the movie where the serious Ashton fell apart.
