Kudos to her for propelling herself to the top of a tough genre. This movie is one of the best action movies I've seen in a while. Nicolas Cage plays Cris Johnson, a man who can see two minutes into the future and predict what will happen. There is the stock Hollywood romantic angle here, but cheesiness is mercifully spared as it is not over done, but actually played out humorously in certain scenes. Well they must of been watching a different movie.
It leaves you a lot to think about and that ultimately ends this film with, not a bang which many people might expect from a big-budget action-fest. The ministry had decided to step in by appointing a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher that proves to be the nastiest person Harry has ever encountered. She was a better Agent Starling than Jody Foster was, and she's a terrific, dominant presence in this film. The end of the movie what makes it great and no one saw it coming. And of course, the story ends in a wholly different way than the movie, a very satisfying and inevitable conclusion that bolsters Mr.
The best part of all is that, unlike most movies these days, the previews don't give away every good scene. First the ending was really unexpected and you don't see it coming. Then the kicker is the ending, which I dare not give away, and it is a real breath of fresh air. Cris Johnson has the ability to see 2 minutes into his own future. It also helps when playing small time gambling. No, definitely not a bang, but a hum.
Dick's reputation for opening the future to us. Quite to the contrary, I found it deeply absorbing. The fact that he can only see up to 2 minutes ahead also limits him somewhat. And finally, yes, I too wish I knew who the heck these terrorists were and what the heck they were trying to accomplish with their nefarious plot. Jessica Biel is not unconvincing as a love interest, but she's not entirely convincing. Drama, humor, really fine action sequences, twists, great characters.
The movie runs smoothly and I didn't see anything left out. Overall, I really enjoyed Next. When I first began hearing about this movie I immediately flashed to it and wondered if this was a movie of that intriguing story. The only complaint I had was in most of the car scenes, the actors aren't in a real car, and you can tell it's fake, but it's overall okay. It's one of the tastiest treats in the film.
With these many things Harry begins one of his toughest years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In that way Next is giving us another insight, not dropping us cold as others have complained. It's a fun sci-fi film that is the perfect start of the summer season. I single out one performer among a fine cast. Cage turns in a great performance as the slightly eccentric seeming Cris. I quickly picked up on the elements which must have caused some reviewers to accuse it of being disjointed, and began enjoying them. We just don't get to hear the bad guys' dialogue, their reasons for doing the things they do.
None of that fits this new story, and was properly omitted. The problem is that the future constantly shifts and every action will change the next future. Next is a much better movie than I expected to see, having read some of the reviews which called it disjointed and silly. That hum will stay with you for a while after you finish watching as you think about what happened and what may still happen. The plot is somewhat predictable, but there are surprises. There's a lot going on and the plot doubles back on itself multiple times. It serves its point as an action film, and it serves it well.
All in all, a feather in everybody's cap and a movie I fully recommend without reservation. The basic plot outline above isn't wholly exciting and can initially smell of outdated Cold War plot lines. I thought it was great and I recommend it. What is translated so well from the written page to the screen is the government's intense interest in him although for different reasons , its efforts to get him under official control, and the exceeding difficulty of doing so. The only downside would have to be that some of the acting is not as good as you would hope. .
He works a low-level magic act in Las Vegas with this secret ability and also makes money gambling. I completely disagree with the last review. But I guess that's the brave new world we live in. Granted, there are some plot holes and some motivations are suspect, but overall it tends to entertain and keep you going more often than not. You get so into the movie the time goes by very fast.
Not a romantic comedy; not a love story. The action is not overwhelming, and all the scenes are well done. Given, the previews give away almost all of the entire plot, but we are talking about the same author who wrote Minority Report. And his skin was a compellingly attractive rich golden hue, which helped make him irresistible to women. As I said, there's a lot of backtracking in the story, which may serve to confuse some but is really important to the storyline.
