The film tells the story of a father, (Dennis Quaid), and son, (Jim Caviezel), who love each other so much that although they are separated by thirty years, manage to find each other again.
It's difficult to say what happens in the film without giving away the whole plot. Let's just say that in finding each other, they change the course of events in their lives dramatically and endanger the life of their wife/mother.
There are brilliant performances all around and this is definately one to add to your collection. Do yourself a favour and buy it, you won't regret it if you enjoy a good thriller.
It was a shame that this film wasn't a hit at the cinemas because it really deserved to be. I suppose a lot of audiences were put off by the lack of big names, but, Jim Caviezel is a likeable lead, and you can always depend on Dennis Quaid to bring a some charm to any film he's in.
The film works as a whole and is a great feel good movie. However, the final scene did seem to resemble a disposable razor ad but this didn't do anything to diminish my enjoyment of the film.
The storyline sounds far-fetched – a young man begins to converse with his father across time to save lives - but it actually works really well. I love the way in which the characters change the past only to directly influence the future (in a similar way to the later The Butterfly Effect).
Both the man characters are really likeable (Jim Caviezel as John Sullivan and Dennis Quaid as his father Frank) and I really found myself on the edge of my seat at the end of the film wondering how it was all going to work out.
Of course everything comes together at the end and I found the ending really enjoyable. The way in which the film covers the past and the present is excellent.
If you are thinking of watching this film I would highly recommend it - it has become one of my favourite films.
