Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The premise of The Butterfly Effect 2, that one's mind can schizophrenically create its own set of realities as a defense mechanism against painful memories, remains the same as in the original movie, though the circumstances for the split differ. In this case, the protagonist, Nick (Eric Lively), takes his girlfriend, Julie (Erica Durance), and their two best friends, Trevor and Amanda, out camping, when upon return they are all crushed to death by a big rig. Nick survives, though plagued by migraine-like seizures that induce in him fantasies starring his friends, during which he's promoted to VP at his place of employment, rather than fired for incompetence. Subplots get less and less tangible, as his fantasies turn to nightmares, and Nick experiences his deceased friends' deaths repeatedly and from various invented causes. As a sequel to the first lame Butterfly Effect, Butterfly Effect 2 has even less going for it since it doesn't star the hunky Ashton Kutcher. Butterfly Effect 2 aims to be a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style editing experiment, but its intention to be a psychological thriller fails due to a weak script and acting. The result is utter chaos, leaving the viewer confused and bored. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

Sequel, which doesn't star Ashton Kutcher, to the big hit Butterfly Effect, which did. However the sequel does feature Eric Lively (American Pie) and Erica Durance (Smallville). Mystery asks the question, "Can you change your past without destroying your future?"

Customer Reviews

Just plain bad.
D. Strack
The acting is...barely passable, for the most part, but the story's protagonist is just plain bad at expressing all the things this character needs to express.
R. Nothnagel
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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

Can you tell????!!!

I absolutely adored the original Butterfly Effect. It was unique, there is virtually no other film like it other there. And it did alright actually. Enough to warrant releasing a director's cut, which took the original story to a whole different dimension.

Butterfly Effect 2 was cheap, and the story does sound quite interesting, but also at the same time, rather than going back in time through his diaries, the new guy goes back in time through photos. Not a direct copy of the original, unlike what some sequels do.

Yes, there was really no need for a sequel. And when the main star doesn't return for the sequel, you know it's basically going to crash and die before it even hits the cinema. (Keanu not returning for Speed 2 etc.) It does have an interesting storyline, but it does tend to fall flat on its face in some scenes. Eric Lively and Erica Durance make a good looking couple, and for the guys, she strips down to not very much, but they just don't have the chemistry or the charisma that Ashton Kutcher & Amy Smart had in the original. Plus, I ended up with the feeling I couldn't really care about the characters, whereas I was nearly crying at original.

It's worthwhile getting cheap, if you like watching silly movies, and it's only 88 minutes long - it's over before you know it. But don't expect an Oscar winning movie.

I thought my head was going to explode halfway through this incomprehensible movie. I got a review screener and was hoping for the best. Is it too much to ask that the alleged story make sense? I use the word story very loosely here.

New Line should supply some kind of editing software and give a prize to anyone who can re-edit this straight to DVD movie into a cohesive story. It might only be a few minutes long but I think it's possible. The bigger question of course is: How does something like this get made? Were there any adults in the production pipeline who looked at the script and said, "Wow, this is great!"? Kind of staggers the imagination.

Even the synopsis on the box was incomprehensibly weird and confusing. Just like the movie. You have been warned. Life is short, don't waste it on bad movies.
