One of the most underated movies I have seen. It is not something epic but it's one of the movies that made me and my friends stand up and scream at the end... I don't want to spoil enyting so do not watch the trailer but do watch the movie...

The movie is about John Sullivan (Caviezel) a Cop who has never recovered from the death of his father, Frank (Quaid). However, after a series of miraculous cosmic events, John is given a chance to communicate with his father in the past. Now, when I initially examined this film for what it was - a movie with a respectable premise, but directed by a guy I had never heard of, and starring a group of actors who aren't really well-known - I was rather apprehensive about watching it. Though, after actually watching "Frequency" I can say that my expectations were pretty much demolished. What threw me for a loop was the direction that this movie took. All I expected "Frequency" to be was a long, drawn out reunion between a father and his grief-stricken son (which sounded to good to me. . .but didn't really sound spectacular). But, about a third of the way in, "Frequency" turned into a very intense crime thriller. That being said, the film excels at interweaving thrills and poignancy without making the transitions feel jarring. The acting was very well executed I'd say, for you learn to feel for both Frank and John Sullivan as "Frequency"'s intriguing plot thickens. The script was pretty well-written too. Overall, I'd say that "Frequency" was an entertaining sci-fi flick that offered a variety of gratifying elements within it. Collapse

Great movie, even if the radio idea is far fetched.
