Rattling good yarn on an old science fiction paradigm,
This review is from: Frequency [DVD]  (DVD)
This film has some great ingredients and they come together wonderfully. I find it hard to imagine someone watching this and coming away disappointed. Really successful.
There's a big leap of faith required for the central theme - man talks to his father across a couple of decades - his dad is back at the time when the son was but a wee boy. The grown up son persuades his dad to do important things to change history.
The stories, attempts to acheive, and the great bond between the son & father are warming. It also acheives great pace and maintenance of viewer interest without descending into an action non-thinker. Some great little twists keep you on your toes - although this is easy viewing and you'll keep up OK.
I thoroughly enjoyed it from end to end and would reccomend it to anyone.
