Editorial Reviews

Eric Lively and Erica Durance face the consequences of their own altered time streams in The Butterfly Effect 2 (Side B). Can a butterfly flapping its wings cause a windstorm thousands of miles away?

I think that's the worst thing I've ever heard. Why would anyone say that. What human being would say that.

I liked part 1, so when I saw there was a sequel, even knowing it had a very low rating, I wanted to give it chance. I love time travel movies, so if this was ANYTHING like the first one, at a minimum I figured I would get a moderate amount of enjoyment out of it.

All I got was a moderate amount of homicidal thoughts after this. I can't believe that professionals can actually create something so bad. Put aside the bland acting and the boring writing for a second, and look at the way the script was structured. The movie was a little less than 90 minutes long, yet nothing even happens for the first 52 minutes, when the movie's more than half over. There was no development of story or characters whatsoever. A complete waste of 52 minutes of screen time.

Whoever wrote this did the equivalent of building a roller coaster that travels from one side of the park to the other without EVER GOING UP, and instead travels across in a completely straight line, and so as you exit off the coaster, you're wondering "wtf was that??" The writer of this story forgot to add the one key element that makes all stories work on some level: some conflict for a protagonist to overcome, obviously. Nothing resembling drama or suspense took place until either the 52 minute mark, or the 61 minute mark. It all depends on whether you would consider his confrontation with his friend in the garage at the 52 minute mark as something significant that builds the story and moves it forward. If not, then there's definitely NOTHING that happens until the 61 minute mark, which is when he realizes that he's no longer in a relationship with his girlfriend. Now that's actually pretty interesting.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible!!!! July 16, 2007
I actually thought the first one was ok. This one was just crap. Was it an after school movie?

Maybe rent it and waste your time but don't buy it unless it is for a relative who you don't like.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke?? October 14, 2006
I can only wish I could alter my past and have rented something else. I can honestly say the original Butterfly is one of my favorite movies. This "sequel" is not even shadow of the original. It seemed that the altered outcome kept getting dumber and dumber. At one point I asked myself if this was a comedy. Sadly it wasn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this movie January 15, 2007
By Mark
The main theme of this movie is "It is our past that brought us to the present". If your life is full of "what if you would had done this", then you would not be in the same place you are now in the present. This is a very simple concept. This movie takes the "gift of ability to change the past to affect the present" scenerio and does it well. The acting of the actors were great and very believable. I don't know why all of the ranting and raving is from the other reviewers, maybe they can't just sit down and enjoy a movie for what it is and accept it for what it is trying to say. I recommend this movie to anyone that likes the concept of "what we do in the past brings us to the present and also affects us in the future".

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth reading the plot outline on the back cover. September 26, 2006
I received an early copy of this film last week from a friend in the distribution business. This film is the worst stright to DVD film i have ever seen. I loved the first one, and still do, but after watching the sequel, i wonder if i can even look at the first one the same. Not one returning actor, and the ending is horrible. If you really have to see it, con one of your friends into renting it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible boring stupid movie May 9, 2007
Whereas the original Butterfly Effect is one of the most divisive movies in science fiction (a genre that's filled with divisive movies that are loved and hated), the most one can disagree with on this movie is how much we hate this thing. Do you hate it, or merely dislike it as a waste of time?

Of course, most straight-to-DVD movies are harmless fluff that are ok on their own standards, this one is bad even without the first movie. The characters are bland. The situation is inane. Nothing is ever explained. Our hero looks at a picture. Things get all wonky. Suddenly he's back in time. He changes something. The future is changed, but how much? And is it really for the better? How is this any different than the first movie? Well, the first movie at least took the time to give us the technobabble. Sure, the technobabble is usually vain but in this case, it's a little important. And the first movie raised the stakes by throwing in an "every jump could be his last" immediacy, the sequel decides to let the guy have a nosebleed without explanation.

Even more odious is the low stakes of the jumps. Sure, Erica Durance dies in the beginning so you can see why he jumps back. Only when he jumps back the second time, he is doing it to get that promotion in the badly managed company. That's it. Ashton Kutchner was losing limbs, turning his friends into serial killers, driving other friends to suicide and ending up in fraternities. This shmuck loses a bad job and then gets it back only to see that he's working too hard. Oh the humanity.

All in all a wretched movie by a screenwriter without imagination or humor. It contains none of the charm of the first movie and doesn't even try to have fun with the "go back in time and mess things up" concept. I would give it a second star for Erica Durance in trashy underwear, but it can't even begin to make up for the rest of the movie.

A pathetic piece of rubbish, "enacted" by pathetic "actors." Do yourself a favour and stay clear. Hard to find 20 words for this. Sorry, one star too many.
