Chaos Theory & Butterfly Effect
Chaos Theory: -a partial area of maths and physics (dynamic)
-the reaction is dependent on the start conditions
->The reaction is not unforeseen for a prolonged period.
-if one start condition is changed the end result can be complete different
-occurs at complicated and complex systems, which are very chaotic
e.g.: -the weather
Butterfly Effect: -is a metaphor for a small reason with a big
-it is a illustration of this effect
by Edward N. Lorenz
e.g.: -weather-forecast: possible for 1 day, bad for 1 month

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Bob Longino
\"...nobody associated with making this movie can possibly emerge unscathed.\"
Boston Globe, Ty Burr
\"A film of singularly boneheaded conceits...\"
Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert
\"I enjoyed The Butterfly Effect, up to a point. That point was reached too long before the end of the movie.\"
Chicago Tribune, Mark Caro
\"Kutcher delivers a credibly serious performance...
"I went into this movie not knowing what the heck it was about. The commercials for it don't give a clear indication of what kind of movie you're going to see, and after the movie started I still wasn't quite sure what was going on. As things came into view, however, a very smart and interesting movie began to unfold. I even noticed that Kutcher, the hyper-kinetic star of the classic \"Dude, Where's My Car?\" can actually act, a little bit. I'm not saying to nominate him for an Oscar or he's the next Anthony Hopkins or anything, but he is to be commended for going outside the box and playing a role that required him to cover the entire gamut of emotions from joy to fear, from sorrow to madness. For the sci-fi fans out there, and those who like a movie to entertain their brain and not just their eyes and ears, this is an enjoyable movie."
I chose this film because it's my favourite one. I think the story is interesting and full of action. You can dream about how life would be, if you can change the past like you want.
I already see the movie 10 times, and I could not stop.
In my opinion in the movie is everything: dramatic, action, horror, sometimes fun and much love.
The characters are really good, no one
is too much and every one has his own
dramatic story, but all are connected.
The actors make a good job, they play
their characters and their emotions very good.
Ashton Kutcher is more famous for his funny and unserious productions ("Punk'd"), but now he plays Evan serious and quite good.
The other actors I don't see before, but it would be interesting to watch a movie with them.
