My impressions of The Butterfly Effect, released on blu-ray by Alliance on January 27th, 2009 ***UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF REVIEW****

Video quality was pretty good. Some of the daytime outdoor scenes seemed pretty bright, a couple scenes looked a little bit soft, there was some video noise popping up a couple of times, but that's about it in the complaints department. Colours were nice, blacks were solid, depth and detail were pretty good.
4 outta 5

Audio was really nice. This one contains a 5.1 DTS HD-MA track. This track was phenomenal. I didn't really find anything wrong with this track. I'd say it was perfect. 5 outta 5

One thing I would have liked to have seen on this blu-ray disc would have been an audio commentary of some kind. But hey, for the small price, this feature-less release is still worth it.

This release of The Butterfly Effect is the director's cut.

****UPDATE****
As of July 17th, 2012, The Butterfly Effect has been released by Warner Bros on blu-ray as well. That version contains both theatrical and director's cuts and special features. The packaging for both Alliance and Warner Bros. blu-ray rleases look almost similar. However, the Warner Bros. release has "The Director's Cut" labeled just below the title and at the bottom of the packaging it says "also includes the theatrical version" in smaller print.

Note: Please see update below

I really liked this movie, I originally had it on DVD. I personally preferred the ending in the theatrical cut over the darker ending in the directors cut and was quite disappointed that the Bluray I received was the directors cut and has no indication of which version of the movie your getting and I just can't seem to find the theatrical cut of this movie on Bluray.

The Bluray is also missing all the extras that are on the DVD as well. I don't really get why the Bluray version of this movie is so lacking.

The picture quality was pretty good though compared to the DVD and I really wish the Bluray was comparable to the features and both versions of the movie that the DVD has.

If you preferred the Directors cut of the movie then this is a good deal for the film (although it doesn't seem to indicate which version here either), but if you want to have both versions and also check out the movie extras then I would probably sacrifice some picture quality and go for the DVD version instead.

UPDATE: Since this review was originally made there has been a new release of this Blu-ray. "The Butterfly Effect Director's & Theatrical Cut [Blu-ray]" now includes both versions of the film as well as the special features included on the original DVD copy. When shopping for this movie, this new re-release should be considered the definitive copy if your looking for both versions of the film plus the special features.

This movie is the first of a series and also the only one you should get. Love Kutcher and how everything changes depending of how his interaction in the movie. Worth watching!

One of my all time faves. A refreshing idea with clever effects and a heart wrenching conclusion. I'll say no more.
A must see.

I was literally told "don't rent it" but I am not at all disappointed. I actually thought it was a very different kind of movie. I normally don't pick movies like this but I was kept in my seat even though it was a little longer than most movies. Unless you like to overanalize things and get offended by movies that are meant to be ficitonal you will probably like this flick, I did! Just remember, it's a movie and enjoy it for what it is.

Ashton Kutcher stars as Evan Treborn, a young man who throughout his childhood was plagued with 'blackouts'. No cause for these blank spots in his life was ever found in spite of extensive tests. His father suffered a similar problem and was institutionalised, Evan is afraid this will be his fate too. To try and make sense of what was going on he was encouraged to keep a daily journal. Although Evan had no memory of what happened during these episodes it was obvious from the behaviour of those around him that some horrific and traumatising events had happened.

When his mother decides to move the family to a different town the blackouts stop. Evan grows up and moves away to university. This is where the film takes a twist. Evan finds that reading his journals propels him into the past, to the events that scarred him and those he cared for, particularly his childhood sweetheart, Kayleigh. He realises that he can control this and even change the events. But like the saying 'when a butterfly flaps its wings a hurricane is felt on the other side of the world', Evan finds that for everything he changes, there is a knock on effect and it isn't necessarily good.

This is a dark and at times very disturbing film. The situations Evan faces are, at times, nightmarish. Ashton Kutcher, better known for lightweight comedic roles, shows he is capable of taking on more serious roles. His performance as the troubled young man is outstanding. The end, when it comes, is quite shocking yet somehow fitting. This is not a comfortable film to watch but is well worth seeing if you want something a little different.
