Sound of Thunder, A
Source: Catholic News Service
Clumsy sci-fi actioner about a corporation that offers time-traveling safaris (led by Edward Burns) for wealthy clients to hunt dinosaurs, during one of which a seemingly inconsequential accident triggers a chain reaction of evolution-altering effects that end up rewriting millions of years of natural history and threatening to wipe out mankind. Inspired by Ray Bradbury's short story and directed by Peter Hyams, the film's tantalizing premise can't overcome its hokey contrivances, uneven special effects and illogical script which doesn't even supply many B-movie thrills. Recurring sci-fi violence, including some intense scenes of menace, an implied sexual encounter with fleeting partial nudity, a suicide, and scattered crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
