37. Knowing (2009)




Roger's Rating :


Should be :



I kind of liked this movie, a little bit, but Roger really loved it. He said in his review "Knowing is among the best science-fiction films I've seen -- frightening, suspenseful, intelligent and, when it needs to be, rather awesome."
I wasn't alone in being stunned by that review. As a matter of fact when I read it I went back and watched the movie again, figuring I must have missed something. But unfortunately I hadn't.
The movie started out pretty good. Nicholas Cage's character tries to solve a mystery and he can't believe it as it unfolds before his eyes. The first half of the movie was very well done.
The movie started to lose me when the whispering aliens appeared. What was done so well in Dark City, fails abysmally here.
I also kind of liked the fairy tale style ending, although most people will probably hate it. Overall, a very mediocre, forgettable movie.
On IMDB it has a 6.5 rating and on Rotten Tomatoes it comes in at 33%.

I think you're being much too kind saying this movie started off well. The movie is pseudo-intellectual poorly written garbage from the beginning.

I highly recommend Confused Matthew's video review as he explains everything that is wrong with this movie.
