Hello all. Some of you may know me and
some of you may not. My
name is Mike. Seth and I have been friends for awhile now and when
started this site I decided I would like to take over writing some
his movie reviews. The reason for this is because I watch a lot
movies and I wanted a creative outlet to express my opinions on
movies. Anyway enough about me on the review.
The first movie Im going to review is Frequency. This was
of the most under-rated movies of 1999. It stars Dennis Quaid and
Caviezel, and is directed by Gregory Hoblit (for those of you who
directors). Well the story starts off on October 10th, 1969. We
Dennis Quaid as a fireman rushing to save some lives. After the
sequence showing off his characters bravery and loving home life
forward to October 10th 1999. We see his son Jon all grown up and
girlfriend/fiancée/wife (not really sure its not explained
packing her bags and leaving.
Well after polishing a bottle of Walker Red Label at a little league
baseball field, Jon goes home and sets up his dads old HAM
radio. Well through some very interesting theoretical physics that
I barely understand he makes contact with an unknown user on the
band and they talk about the World Series. Through the progression
of events we find out Jons dad died 30 years ago. You can
kind of see where this is heading. Somehow bouncing of sun spots
and the northern lights allows father and son to contact each other
over ham radio separated by 30 years.
As comes with all time travel movies, someone always feels the
necessity of messing with the space/time continuum. We find that
his fathers life has altered events in away that now the mother
dead. So now father and son have to try and catch a serial killer
was supposed to die year before, but didnt, and they have
to do that
before he kills his mother.
I have to say that this is a rather interesting movie. It is a
time travel movie the plot is deep enough to keep you interested
not so deep that you have to keep your attention every single second.
The other nice thing, unlike other time travel movies they dont
overboard trying to explain the physics behind time travel. It seems
like every movie that involves this has its own set of rules. In
the only explanation comes from a TV interview during the movie.
So in my opinion this is definitely a movie to rent or add to
the collection if you collect movies. Its not terribly hardcore
sense so you dont feel worn out after watching it. This is
