    Bought the region 1 of this last week, and watched it at the weekend.

    For those who have never heard of it, its a time travelling story, starring Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley.

    Reminded me very much of The Butterfly Effect, a film that I adore, and I was left with similar feelings for this at the end. Beautifully shot, well acted, and very enjoyable.

    Highly recommended for lovers of The Butterfly Effect/12 Monkeys/Donnie Darko :thumbsup:

    Only disappointment is the lack of a Directors Commetary on the disk......ah well, here's hoping for a Special Edition :)

    Saw this at the pics and was left thinking what the fudge?!? Kinda liked it though.

    Watched Butterfly Effect, The Theatrical Version from the R3 2 disc set today. And thought this was brilliant. Really enjoyed it.

    I was dragged to see this by a mate who has fairly dire taste in movies. He was enthusing over this after seeing the trailer so I was very wary. I agreed to go to his movie (The Jacket)and he agreed to go to mine (A Dirty Shame).

    I ended up really enjoying The Jacket while he hated it. We both loved A Dirty Shame. Pure, unadultarated filth from start to finish. :D

    I have just bought 12 Monkeys because of this film. I was quiet young when i saw 12 Monkeys and I think the movie just went straight over my head so i didn't like it. Hopefully it will be different now.

    Adrien Brody is turning out to be a good little actor, hopefully he is as good in King Kong :)
