Overview

When a man's girlfriend is killed in a tragic auto accident, his time-traveling attempts to alter her fate have some unexpected effects on the events of the future in director John R. Leonetti's shocking sequel to the 2004 Ashton Kutcher hit. Nick (Eric Lively) and Julie (Erica Durance) were deeply in love, but when death robs the young couple of their lifetime of happiness, Nick isn't willing to say goodbye to his soulmate without a fight. Soon discovering that he has the ability to travel into the past to a point before the time of Julie's untimely death, Nick struggles to find a means of saving his one true love despite the increasingly troubling results that his well-intended heroics seem to have on the future.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
So how does one follow up a flick so largely split between the critical world and the movie-going audience such as The Butterfly Effect? Why, treat the premise as if it were a TV show, of course! Throw in new characters in a less ambitious plot and deliver enough of the very basics of the first film so as to tie the first two flicks together, and there's part two in a nutshell. For the folks that love to ridicule the first film, there's little here that compares to the savory torture that actor extraordinaire Ashton Kutcher previously endured. The worst thing to actually say about this installment is just how much of a jerk the main character comes off as, almost immediately after he endures his first time-shift freakout. It also doesn't help that lead Eric Lively is highly inconsistent in his character's behaviors -- a point that some may argue as a result of dimension traveling, but to others, it will no doubt just come off as downright sloppy. To the masses that enjoyed the first movie and are looking for a bit of the same, albeit in a much more easier to swallow package, this could be just what the straight-to-DVD gods ordered. All others will yawn at the movie's generic quality and half-hearted ending that puts a happy spin on the ridiculous alternate ending from the original.
