The Butterfly Effect

This movie rightly obtains the "R" Rating because of the complex plot it contains. Not every person would understand this movie because as I mostly say, perceptions would vary, hence getting a different understanding of the story altogether. This flavor of this movie is something similar to that of Donnie Darko or Jacob's Ladder – A story with a very complex portal to a simple plot and a beautiful underlying meaning. Here the movie is something about "Trying to repair a morbid past for a pleasant future". The story is very intense and thrilling and keeps you engaged throughout. At times you would find yourself left in the dark (which you would eventually appreciate at the end of the movie). The story would indulge you and take you for a good trip (that’s ofcourse only if you want to get indulged) The ability of the director to materialize the idea is awesome, visually and mentally. Ashton Kutcher acted amazingly well in this movie. The message of the movie was amazing, a child's life is always tender and delicate. Every event has a huge impact at a later point of life.
As beautifully said - "Something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world." Every small thing in life matters.
