Edge of your seat stuffBy Catchag from Whyteleafe , 15 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I had never heard of this movie prior to hiring it in 2000. 4 of us sat watching it and it is one of those movies which sucked us in straight away and had us shouting at the screen.
The direction is fast paced and moody, the acting is good, story is great.
It's not the best movie of all time, but damn worth seeing - in my opinion.

FrequencyBy a customer from East Yorkshire. , 10 Oct 2008What a great film, With Dennis Quiad & Jim Caviezel who play father and son in a film that brings for wan't for a better word distance and time & contact through a radio to a new meaning by what i could only describe as the Northen Lights Phenomenon, If that's the way to put it, Once the story gets up and running it keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through, We really enjoyed it that much we actually went out and bought it.
For anyone who likes this type of film give this a look, I would definately recommend it.
FrequencyBy a customer from Ravenglass , 20 Aug 2008Wanted to watch this after seeing the Garth Brookes video to the title music. It more than lived up to expectations
Fun and well actedBy a customer from Lincolnshire , 09 Jul 2008One of the best films I've watched in the past 5 years. If doesn't pretend to be something it's not. It is a time travel story with the difference that no one goes anywhere, but the consequnces of messing with your past are played out. So the puzzle is how to get the present onto the right track. Interwoven with all this is a murder mystery. Great entertainment.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008An interesting idea for a film this one, and it certainly showed a lot of promise. However, the final effect came across as a hackneyed version of 'Back To The Future'.
The tension built nicely from the start and we were able to get little glimpses as to how Quaid's character would change . However, as the plot line became more complicated the story became less and less believeable. Characterisation was sacrificed for plot continuation. The ultimate ending left more questions than answers.
Overall not bad, but not a film that you would return to after seeing once.
over the radio wavesBy faith (139 reviews) from uk , 29 May 2008i enjoyed the plot and how a father got to see his son again after many years. it was also a very 'sci-fi' way to catch out a criminal after killing so many innocent people and using being a cop as a guise.
the reunion was tear jerking especially when his dad saved his life.
a good father-son movie
