So I rambled on yesterday (well early this morning) after watching The Butterfly Effect movie. I was keen to see another movie along the same lines and wanted to watch the sequel, although not a sequel to the first movie’s plot but another story also referencing the butterfly effect.
Well, I should have taken note of the two warning signs. One being it was a sequel, and two it only getting a 4 out of 10 star rating by viewers on IMDB.
What a dissapointment! The plot was very thin, the characters didn’t really have much depth to them, they tried reusing a similar plot ending like the first movie but failed dismally. And they also seemed to try and sensationalise it even more by adding numerous soft-porn like scenes. You’d be better off watching late-night TV on a local channel on a Saturday night after midnight.
So if you’ve seen neither, take my advice – only watch the first – the second will just spoil it for you. And if you enjoy things like chaos theories and the butterfy effect, then make sure you don’t miss the TV series called Fringe – it’s well worth it.
