Format: DVD
This is a wonderfully nuanced fantasy flick with a bravura performance by Dennis Quaid who plays the father and a compelling one by Jim Caviezel who plays the son.

Another reviewer hit the nail on the head when he claimed this film to be reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode. It certainly has that feel to it. The premise here is a simple one. A son, haunted by the premature, though heroic, death of his fire fighter father thirty years earlier, is reunited with him through an old ham radio which had belonged to his father. He finds himself speaking to his father over the air waves, when an aurora borealis-like solar storm provides a conduit into the past.

This connection to the past allows the son to alter the one event which has so profoundly marred his life, that of his father's death. Over the airwaves he tells his father of the fire to which he will be dispatched and of his impending death. He also tells his father what he needs to do in order to avoid his premature demise. The father is dispatched to the fire about which his son has told him and acts upon his son's suggestion, forever altering the future.

This change, however, alters other events, and it results in his mother's premature death at the hands of a serial killer. Father and son now go to work in tandem, each in his own time and way, to try to alter this event, forever changing their respective lives. The son, who is a cop, finds that the case which he has been working on is now the unsolved serial killer case involving his mother.

As the father effects subtle changes in his respective reality, this causes shifts in his son's present day reality.

With a little extra spending money I picked up a few DVD's 'to take a chance on', hoping for one gold nugget. Well, this one is just that. I have watched it several times in a few months, and have made a point of lending it out to my friends simply saying 'trust me, you'll enjoy it'. It has come back each time with positive to glowing reviews, and a smile showing each person did enjoy it.
The script is well thought out! Tell me how many times you've watched a movie that seemed to have been roughed out on a napkin the night before they started filming? The story moves forward with... a couple surprises/twists that fit perfectly into the storyline, but doesn't overshadow the identification with and the developement of the characters. Great casting. I have been a Dennis Quaid fans for over a decade, and Jim Cavieziel was a pleasant discovery for me.
I missed this in the theatre. Not too many people went to see it. Man, I might have missed it altogther had I not had a few dollars to spend... and in this case, that would have been a bad thing. You'll enjoy it, trust me.

Frequency is a very entertaining yet totally unbelievable movie, the plot of which revolves around solar flares affecting radio waves and allowing a sort of time-travel for a particular ham-radio operator. Still with me? Good, because apart from the silly science, this is a really good sci-fi/adventure/drama movie. Suspenseful and well-acted, the movie is high on production values and details.
Dennis Quaid stars as the fireman father, James Caviezel is the cop son, and Elizabeth Mitchell is the wife/mother. Through the time-travel setup, the son is able to communicate with his dead father via his dad's old ham-radio. Together, they try to avert the accident that leads to the father's death in a warehouse fire. Another bad-guy character crosses from the past reality to the present reality.
I'm not going to spoil the movie with particulars or more details.
The DVD has 2 good, informative commentaries. One is by director Gregory Hoblit, and one by actor Noah Emmerich and writer/producer Toby Emmerich. In Hoblit's, he reveals the ending he would have rather used. Although the movie ending was acceptable, Hoblit's idea would have been better from a logic viewpoint.
Deleted scenes, a documentary about the "science" in the movie, and a few other goodies at a resonable price make this a highly recomended DVD. Over!

Format: DVD
This movie is quite an intricate story. It begins explosively, settles you into the main characters and who they are, and then the science fiction weaves its way into the story line. Quite original thinking behind this story.
Dennis Quaid plays a heroic fireman and a loving husband and father in the past. James Caviezel portrays his adult son in the future. James Caviezel character is tragic, sad because he misses his father who died in a fire when he was young. The story affords James' character to save Dennis by telling him how he would die and how to avoid it. How does he communicates with his dead father? Watch the film. It's quite simple. By doing so, the consequences goes beyond what they imagined, and the story really takes off from that point on.
The story is great for popcorn on the sofa at home. It is heartwarming, exciting, and smartly written. I recommend for enthusiast of intricate story telling and acting.
Thanks.
