Synopsis

Due to a stellar phenomenon, a cop is able to communicate with his long-dead father over a short wave radio. With the help of these time warp conversations, he attempts to avert his fireman father’s death and prevent his mother from being murdered by a serial killer.

Dove Review

Although it contains several large gaps in plausibility and has pacing problems in the beginning, “Frequency” is an entertaining film. The suspenseful plot is fairly complex, holding the viewers attention, and there is a charming performance by Quaid. Alas, while giving us positive portrayals of a loving family, it unfortunately, includes a few misuses of God’s name, while treating Jesus name as if it were a mere expletive.
