A sci-fi thriller about a Las Vegas magician Cris Johnson (Nicholas Cage) who has a gift – he can see a few minutes into the future.

He's been spending all his time laying low and performing money-making card tricks, when along comes government agent Callie Ferris (Julianne Moore) to convince him to help foil a terrorist plot. She finds this hard, obviously, because he's always a few minutes ahead of her. The devil!

What next>>>

An overtold story of a guy who can see into the future, but only by 2minutes!! some bits of minor interest, but certainly not one of Nicholas Cages best acting or story selections. Would need to be a pretty boring and wet day you need to waste to bother with this one.

In Next, a crummy action and speculative-fiction hybrid, Nicolas Cage plays a guy who can see into the future two minutes at a time. It's too bad that Mr. Cage couldn't tap into those same powers of divination to save himself from making yet another inexplicably bad choice in roles...

Directed by Lee Tamahori with his customary flash and glitter, Next lives from one brilliantly executed chase sequence to the next, which is more than enough reason to stay the course...

It's noisy, nonsensical, and will fade from your consciousness even before you make it out of the theater lobby, but it's entertaining enough, and Tamahori throws us a few curve balls to keep things interesting...

A confused mess of poorly executed half-baked ideas. While Tamahori can't be blamed for the cliche-ridden script (complete with '80s-style Euro villains), tacked-on romance and dreadful dialogue, all his beautiful shots of the Grand Canyon can't make up for some truly shoddy special effects, awful back projections and generally low level of production values. Cage, also, is truly dreadful...

With plenty of action on offer, there are a few thrills and spills to be had. It's just a shame that none of the laughs are intentional...
