When a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon of nature opens a mysterious channel to the past, John is stunned to discover that he is able to communicate with his dad Frank (Dennis Quaid) who`s been dead for 30 years. But by changing the past, they set in motion a string of brutal, unsolved murders, with John`s mother, and Frank`s wife, the next victim. Racing against time, the son and father must now find a way to stop the crime that could destroy the future for both of them.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A good movie which mixes elements of believable sci-fi and drama.
    Both of the leads are doing a fine job of acting.
    The video transfer is very good. The dark scenes are rendered in great detail and there is not a single sign of compression marks.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used appropriately and do a good job.
    The menus are all animated with sounds and look very nice.
    The extras are really good. They include 2 interesting commentaries, some deleted scenes, a great documentary that doesn`t just go behind the scenes but rather explains all the phenomenons in the movie, an isolated score track, a trivia titles track which is very informative and 4 stages in the rendering of the opening scene. All in all, this is how extras should be.
    Bottom line - a good movie with great extras, nice visuals, intriguing plot and fine acting.
