FREQUENCY (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì 

—average film—has a great concept but lacks the spirit of a great sci-fi film. Unfortunately, even after character John Sullivan, played by Jim Caviezel, gets his radio working, the movie continues to falter in presentation.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 
Yes. The movie may work as a background movie for a party, but it does not serve the sit and watch effort.
