Movie Review – Knowing

Posted on June 28, 2009



Academy Award® Winner Nicolas Cage stars in KNOWING, a gripping action-thriller of global proportions about a professor who stumbles on terrifying predictions about the future—and sets out to prevent them from coming true.

I really like Nicolas Cage as an actor. He usually portrays an average guy who you can believe gets into these strange situations and most of his movies are pretty darn good. Unfortunately, this was not one of them.

The story seems to be pretty good, but the movie itself left a lot to be desired. It was very predictable in most cases, yet in other cases, it left large holes in the story. Not explaining certain things that they spent a lot of time setting up. Also, there seemed to by quite a bit of amateurish hand held camera scenes. Those are very distracting and takes you out of the movie experience. Oh, for the good ole days when professionals made movies.

Also, Chandler Canterbury, who plays Caleb Koestler in the movie, just did not seem to do a very good job of acting at all.

Overall, the movie is ok, if you need something to watch, but do not expect too much.

Here is the trailer for the movie, which is actually better than the movie itself.
