Overview

A seemingly insignificant act may cause the fabric of history to unravel in this sci-fi adventure. Charles Hatton Ben Kingsley owns and operates a successful firm known as Time Safari. Thanks to time travel technology developed by Hatton's employee Sonia Rand Catherine McCormack, Time Safari allows big game hunters to journey back to prehistoric days and shoot living, breathing dinosaurs. Rand picks out the dinosaur in question, who is soon to die, and creates a floating walkway for the hunters, so the impact of their presence will not be felt by the land around them. But on one expedition, things go horribly wrong when a nervous hunter steps off the walkway and crushes a butterfly, a tiny act that proves to have massive consequences over the course of several million years. As the earth's climate and animal life begin to mutate due to this shift in natural history, Time Safari's leading hunting guide, Travis Ryer Edward Burns, works beside Rand in a desperate attempt to halt the "ripples of time" before modern civilization completely collapses. A Sound of Thunder was based on a classic short story by pioneering science fiction author Ray Bradbury.

    Bad, bad, bad

    I've read that this movie had a budget of somewhere around $85 million. It had to be a typo, because there's no way they spent that kind of money and ended up with this kind of garbage. If you want to watch this movie for a laugh, you might get something out of it, because, believe me, you WILL laugh. If this was a final project for film school, it would get an F. I didn't bother to watch the credits to see who did the CGI, but they need to update their software or something. Terrible movie if you're expecting something. Pretty funny if you want to laugh at bad movie making at its best.

    This movie ain't that bad

    Sure, this movie suffered from some bad CGI that doesn't look finished but the plot is good enough for one viewing. The 2nd half takes a strange turn of events involving a questionable time travel concept, but the alternately evolving creatures jumping out of the woodwork are cool. Go into this movie with the mindset that this is a cheesy Friday night date flick, and you'll be okay with it.
