Storyline

Las Vegas showroom magician Cris Johnson has a secret which torments him: he can see a few minutes into the future. Sick of the examinations he underwent as a child and the interest of the government and medical establishment in his power, he lies low under an assumed name in Vegas, performing cheap tricks and living off small-time gambling "winnings." But when a terrorist group threatens to detonate a nuclear device in Los Angeles, government agent Callie Ferris must use all her wiles to capture Cris and convince him to help her stop the cataclysm. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

The diner where Nicolas Cage runs into Jessica Biel's character is the same diner used in xXx (2002) with Vin Diesel. This dinner is located in Los Angeles, not in Las Vegas: Pann's Restaurant, at 6710 La Tijera Blvd., in Los Angeles. See more »

Goofs

(at around 32 mins) As Chris and Liz arrive at the Indian village, Liz announces it is the "Havasupai Reservation". The movie makes no further effort to specifically define where or what the location is. Since the Havasupai Reservation consists of 189,000 acres (approximately 295 sq miles) and has several waterfalls throughout, the audience is led to believe that it is a nondescript, perhaps even fictitious location. Since the movie makes no specific identification of this location, other than the Havasupai Reservation, any claims made regarding errors in geography (the village of Supai, the trail head to Havasupai and/or Havasu Falls among others) are unfounded.

Keeps you watching to find out what happens "Next" ...
7 June 2008 | by Vic_maxSee all my reviews

It was really interesting to watch this movie because it took the "ability to see the future" idea in a slightly new direction. The lead character can see the future, but only what happens to him and only 2 minutes into the future. Furthermore, he lives his life laying low so as to not get any attention.

Now that is a cool idea for a movie ... and it takes off from there when he finally does get noticed. Nicolas Cage does a great job of playing the lead role of a guy who just wants to be left alone. Julianne Moore is very effective as the bright and ruthless government agent pursuing Cage for the "greater good."

The movie is engaging (you always want to find out what happens next) and you get to see an interesting idea played out: how can he use his amazing yet limited ability given critical challenges?

If you're a sci-fan and like the idea behind this movie, definitely catch this. For everyone else, I'd say it's a definite thumb's up.
