A Sound of Thunder - Movie Synopsis & Plot
In the near future, time travel is possible. One company, Time Safari, Inc., hosts trips that travel back in time to the age of the dinosaurs and allows hunters to kill creatures of the verge of death (so their killing does not alter time). However, after one hunter steps on a butterfly, time is affected and the hunters return to a present time that is not the one they left.
There is silly, and then there is stupid beyond any realm of comprehension. When the screenwriters involved with adapting the Ray Bradbury short story "A Sound of Thunder" sat down to come up with a feature length film, they apparently were on crack cocaine. When Warner Brothers executives sat down to decide whether to finance such a film, they apparently never read the screenplay. And when director Peter Hyams, who has directed his fair share of decent-but-not-great action movies, signed on to the film, he apparently thought that no one would notice.
