Butterfly Effect 3
I really liked 2004's The Butterfly Effect, which I felt was excellent
Sci-Fi. Not everyone agreed, but I'm happy again with 2009's The Butterfly
Effect 3: Revelation that surprisingly was as good as the original. It's
not a true sequel, because the characters are all different, but the theme
is the same. Like the original, this is more a time change movie than a
time travel movie.
Sam can go back in time, called a "jump", and he uses his powers to
earn his living, by observing killers in action and identifying them to
police. He must be careful because if he changes anything, even
accidentally, the butterfly effect could cause history to change, and he
would return to a completely different present with no memory of what
happened in his new history.
Breaking his own rules, Sam decides to help the sister of his murdered
teenage girlfriend find out who the real murderer was. She feels that the
person who is on death row is not the true killer. Unfortunately, unable
to stop himself from trying to help the girl avoid the attack, he winds up
changing history and returns to a world he doesn't know, with problems
that didn't previously exist. Each attempt to fix things causes worse
problems and leaves his memory more scrambled than ever.
Outstanding Sci-Fi, well written and well acted....just a blast to
