Reviews

Action thriller starring Nicolas Cage as John Koestler, a teacher who opens a time capsule that has been unearthed in the grounds of his son's school. The capsule contains some chilling predictions, some of which have already occurred, and other still worse prophecies that have yet to happen. With the reluctant help of Diana and Abby Whelan (Rose Byrne and Lara Robinson), the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased writer of the predictions, Koestler sets out on a race against time to solve the riddles and do what he can to avert destruction on a global scale.

4.0 out of 5 stars 95% brilliant - spoilt by the ending 7 April 2009
By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
`Knowing' begins in 1959 when an elementary school is celebrating its open by burying a time capsule containing the students' drawings of their thoughts of what the future will look like when its opened again in 50 years time. Instead of doing a drawing, one young girl named Lucinda writes down a series of seemingly random numbers. 50 years later, the time capsule is opened and the drawings are given to the students. A boy named Caleb gets the page containing Lucinda's numbers. His father Jon (Nicolas Cage) is a professor of astrophysics and one night he notices that one of the number sequence is the date of the 9/11 attacks and it's death toll. After spending the night looking into this with the help of the internet, Jon realises that the numbers are all dates and death tolls of major disasters over the past 50 years. However there are 3 dates that are yet to come.

I've been looking forward to seeing this film for absolutely ages and I finally got to see it at the weekend and I would of loved to be writing this review now saying that it was amazing but the last 5 minutes completely let this down. Literally 95% of this film is absolutely perfect, it has everything - mystery, suspense, horror, action. The disaster sequences were some of the most impressive and shocking scenes I've seen in this type of film, the supernatural elements of it were very chilling and quite scary at times, the storyline was very good for a majority of the film with some really good ideas, the acting was excellent especially from Cage who plays his part very believably, it was just the last 5 minutes of the film that ruined this for me. I'm not going to spoil it and say what happened but when I was watching this part I actually thought to myself "are they serious!?

5.0 out of 5 stars 'WHAT HAPPENS' - 'WHEN THE NUMBERS RUN OUT ?' 2 Jun 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Got to admit to being a little 'bias' i've enjoyed watching most 'Nicholas Cage' films down the years, this one being no exception, Some of his early movies included 'Con-Air' 'Face/off' and 'The Rock' ( all three available on 'Blu-ray ) the first two of which transfer to this format rather well i might add.
This film ? ........50 years ago at a new school a class of pupils were asked by their teacher to draw pictures of what they think it will be like in fifty years time, the drawings would the be placed in envelopes and buried in a 'time' capsule to be opened up by a future generation of pupils 50 years down the line, one pupil 'Lucinda' fills her page with numbers that she believed voices in her head were telling her to do.
Well the 50 years has passed, the capsule is lifted from the ground, opened and the envelopes handed out, 'John's' ( Nicholas Cage ) son is handed 'lucinda's' envelope, when opened a sheet full of numbers means very little, until 'John' try's to make sense of them...chillingly the numbers seem to make accurate predictions of
forthcoming ( from 50 years earlier ) disaster's including the 9/11 attack and even giving the numbers killed.
all the dates on the paper are not used up, there is more to come, 'John' believes he can warn the authorities of what and where things will happen, but will anyone listen ?
'John' decides that he must look up 'Lucinda' but only finds her daughter 'Diane' (Rose Byrne ) 'Lucinda' had died some time earlier, at first 'Diane' does not wish to discuss her mother's predictions, but when what 'John' tells her 'happens' 'Diane' does take notice.
