The Butterfly Effect

What could’ve been a great and clever thriller is, well not quite ruined, but certainly affected by Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of the lead role. When I say portrayal I really mean.. well I’m not sure as it seems he just kinda turned up on set each day and played himself in that “Whooa.. dude!” kind role. The idea behind the movie, a man who blacked out events from his traumatic childhood then finds himself able to go back and change them, isn’t new, but is quite cleverly handled. In fact the story almost makes you forget just how average the acting is. Probably one to watch on a lazy Saturday.
