    Which ending did it have? I thought the Director's Cut on R2 was just that bit too depressing, I can see why the theatrical ending was the one that was released.

    WARNING CONTAINS SPOILER Well interestingly enough the disc is a flipper, one side the theatrical ending and the other the directors cut, which I watched. The directors cut lasts about six minutes longer and finished with the death in the womb of our main character

    Have to say that although i bought the directors cut of this film from play.com (very cheap too) its a dissapointing effort - full of cliches and an overly sombre mood.
    Its also not very well shot or lit.
    The performances are a little stilted and uncomfortable also - though some - especially from the youngsters - are good.
    The script is not upto much either.

    The DD5.1 sound track has some good 'made you jump' moments though.

    The DTS one must be even better.

    Worth a rent - if nothing else is in Blockbusters that night - but no more imho.

    Yeah, it wasn't half as clever as the directors thought it was.
    Most obvious question (SPOILER)


    If all it took to trigger the time travel effect was to read the journals, how come he had never done that before? The whole reason he kept journals in the first place was to jog his memory post-blackout!

    Oh and the title and whole chaos theory aspect was pretty tenous, as far from a butterfly's downdraft in China causing a hurricane in America, his actions only appeared to affect his very small group of friends!

    one of my favourite films ever. i think the R1 is still the best version to own if you want both versions of the film. There's a nicer R3 2 disc set with a holographic digipak, but the subtitles are semi-forced and the menus are all in korean, otherwise i would have kept it..

    IIRC he was only able to trigger "the butterfly effect" once he got to a certain age,his mother also said that his father was the same age when he started "going a bit weird".
