Storyline

Nick Larson and his best friends Trevor Eastman and Amanda are celebrating the twentieth-fourth birthday of his girlfriend Julie Miller in a beautiful lake on a Sunday morning. Nick is expecting to be promoted in the company where he works, and Julie is planning to move to his place instead of going to New York for her Master degree. However, Nick is called by his colleague Dave Bristol, who is disputing the promotion with Nick, for a meeting with a client. While on the road, Nick has an accident and Julie and his friends die. One year later, Nick finds that he can travel in time and tries to fix the past, with tragic consequences for the future. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hmmm that's what I believe
11 December 2006 | by sword_steliosSee all my reviews

Hello guys. I've just watched BE2 and I believe it's not good enough too. I mean that it lacks in many fields compared to the first, like story, special effects, quality and and time(it's really short). However, the actors did their best. I love Erica Durance: Not only does she have a perfect body (and sweet and tempting face) but she acts fantastic.If you like, you can watch Smallville where she plays Lois. She is really amazing. Anyway, this sequel is an offense to its name and I hope there would be another worthy film to see. Well, let's be more specific. I agree that sex scenes were not necessary(as some guys mentioned) but i feel that if the scenario was developed more, child reference wouldn't be needed.I liked the point where Nick is searching for information about his "illness" and he finds a picture of a BE1 character(I think Evan's father).I think it would be interesting to see such references to the original Butterfly effect in a possible new one.
