Movie Review: Knowing (2009)

This is a bizarre little sci-fi thriller.

For the build up it seems to be about numerology, Nic Cage showing off his 'acting', bad child actors and a useless weepy woman. Cage's character becomes obsessed with a sheet of paper covered in numbers that correctly predict disasters. Then he sees one of the predicted disasters come true, a terrifying plane crash. Shaken he tries to stop the remaining two disasters, but can't.

The ending is not what is expected. In some ways, it is slightly similar to an episode of 'The Outer Limits' called 'Music of the Spheres' and it all ends with some really unsubtle religious imagery.

This film was surprisingly dull, the plane crash, the subway and the final disaster were all the excitement provided. Still the highlight of this film was the fact the new version of the 'Star Trek' trailer was shown. It seems from he snippets shown that the film is taking pages from the Trek novels 'Final Frontier' and 'Enterprise: The First Adventure'.
