Trivia

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 »

Some efforts but a bit short of a great flick
8 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Have to say, loved the first Butterfly Effect movie and decided to watch the second which everyone would agree is a total disaster. This third one worried me but I gave it a try. It ended not to be the best flick ever but has at least has some storyline. In fact, the movie even has a tiny bit of a surprise as the plot deepens and end to be a fine movie. The acting is not bad at all (Sam Reide character is well enacted and Jenna tend to appear as a believable sister character).

So in truth, I may even go to say that if you are looking for a easy to understand SciFi movie genre (making some sense), you will probably be entertained by watching this sequel. Do not expect a follow-up of the first however (theme theme but no real relation).
