Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, Nicolas Cage’s Hair
Cris: I’ve seen every possible ending. None of them are good for you.
Cris Johnson (Cage) can see two minutes into his own future. The government is after him because they think he can help them stop a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in the U.S. The terrorists are after him for the same reason.
I knew this was going to be bad going into it, so it’s a good thing it was free on-demand!
Where to begin…? It really seems like the writers just bent Cris’ future-sight gift to suit whatever plot developments they needed it to. Also, how am I supposed to believe that Jessica Biel’s character is going to trust creepy-looking, creepy-acting Nicolas Cage enough after 5 minutes of knowing him to give him a ride somewhere?
Lame dialogue, lame special effects, lame ideas stolen from other movies, lame romance, vague villains…it all adds up to…not much.
There was one good action sequence near the end, but even that was almost ruined by some scenes that made little or no sense.
10 – 6.5 for being unoriginal, dull, and confusing – .5 for Cage’s weird hair + .2 for Biel being easy on the eyes = 3.2
