Chicago, 2055. Time Safari, Inc. led by its slick CEO (Ben Kingsley), offers the hottest ticket around: an expedition into the past to hunt dinosaurs. Just don't bring anything back. Someone does. And 65 million years of evolution jump the tracks. Vegetation engulfs buildings. Carnivorous insects attack. Highly evolved dinosaur descendants turn humanity from predator to prey. It used to be our world. Now it's theirs...unless two scientists (Edward Burns and Catherine McCormack) can somehow turn back the clock.
Dissapointing with a poor choice of cast.

Sound of thunder is one of those films which on paper should have been a box office smash. It has a clever storyline, an $80 million budget, decent special effects and a respected director, the trouble is it also has a terrible cast. I'm a fan of Edward Burns, as a writer, director and actor he's made some fine films but as a big budget "saving the world" lead actor he's horribly miscast, Jemima Rooper is a fine TV actress but on the big screen she's well out of her depth and Ben Kingsley plays yet another predictable bad guy. With a better cast this could have been a decent film, but in reality it comes off as a big budget B-movie.
