Brief Synopsis – A New York  detective mysteriously finds a way to connect with his fireman father who died 30 years earlier.

Bottom Line – Amazing story that works so well. Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid both do superb jobs with their characters who are trapped across time.  The story plays out really well and they throw some great twists and turns int the mix which adds so much to things. The concept of the film is simple one, yet is presented plausibly. They fall into a sight rut when it needs to deal with how people remember the past when it is changed, but besides that, this is a solid thriller with a sci-fi twist to it. Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the movie, Frank Sullivan was an FDNY firefighter, and the numerical address of the Sullivans’ house is 343. One year after “Frequency” was released, 343 FDNY firefighters died in the collapse of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10) (no change from original review)
