All of the bar scenes (including a murder scene) were filmed in Foran's Grand Trunk Pub, one of the oldest pubs still in operation in the city of Detroit. One unique fact about Foran's is that the famed magician, Harry Houdini, kept an office in the basement of the pub. See more »
The film takes place in Detroit, Michigan. Lonnie is on death row for being the "Pontiac Killer", however the State of Michigan abolished capital punishment for state crimes in 1846. Lonnie also couldn't be executed in the state even by the Federal government since a 1963 state constitution amendment also abolished federal capital punishment in the state. The last person to be executed in Michigan was in 1938 by the U.S. Government. See more »
I haven't seen Butterfly Effect 2, and a lot of people had said that Butterfly Effect was terrible - though I'd thought otherwise.
This movie however, much unlike the original offers a main character seasoned in the ability to gain control of his past self (Its not exactly time travel). Not to mention he is also completely aware of the changes made in time.
The movie is done SO WELL, and very fun to watch because it doesn't include the 'WTF?' attitude Ashton had to have for the first movie. Instead it goes at a decent pace and if anything makes you want more! I'd also like to make a comment on other postings stating characters 'Don't Make Sense, because they have no explanation'. Its asinine, that somebody couldn't put together that Goldburg is simple somebody that helps along the main character.
Either way, its rent able, buy able, and best of all watchable!
