Not much more needs to be said other than this is a summer flick, a time-traveling adventure, very loosely based on a Ray Bradbury story. The setting is 2055 Chicago, where folks with deep pockets get the opportunity to run with (okay, hunt) the dinosaurs, courtesy of a greedy entrepreneur (Kingsley). A snafu threatens to change the future, reverting Chicago (and the rest of the planet) back to prehistoric times. Loads and loads of special effects and, well, that's about it. "The Simpsons" fleshed out this premise with more success a few years ago.

A Sound of Thunder
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 1.0 4.0

A Sound of Thunder came out in 2005. It can be purchased on DVD and has a running time of 102 minutes. This film is an action/drama. Edward Burns, Catherine McCormack, and Ben Kingsley star in A Sound of Thunder. A guy goes back into prehistoric time and gets to chill with the dinosaurs. There’s an incident that goes wrong and that sets off a chain reaction, which changes the future! There’s a lot of special effects throughout the movie.
