Movie trailer


It's not the greatest movie out there in this genre, but what I like about this movie is that whilst the end is predictable and religious in tone the rest of the movie is relatively free of it and they don't add that contrived romance bit to it. 6.5/10
Interesting, bit slow in parts and the ending is a bit lame,but overall entertaining, it's a Sci-fi / drama / disaster , sort of combo. 5/10
Thanks to linkers.
I liked this movie, but I think the ending was rushed with little follow up.
In the fall of 1959, for a time capsule, students draw pictures of life as they imagine it will be in 50 years. Lucinda, an odd child who hears voices, swiftly writes a long string of numbers. In 2009, the capsule is opened; student Caleb Koestler gets Lucinda's "drawing" and his father John, an astrophysicist and grieving widower, takes a look. He discovers dates of disasters over the past 50 years with the number who died. Three dates remain, all coming soon. He investigates, learns of Lucinda, and looks for her family. He fears for his son, who's started to hear voices and who is visited by a silent stranger who shows him a vision of fire and destruction. What's going on?
Great Observation Enk, I noticed it as well, when it first came out, didn't think about it. Now Your comment made me watch it over....You ARE CORRECT, SIR.Thank You.

WOW great movie, i never expected to much at first. but turned out to be a really good one

This movie will have you going until the last 10 minutes. If they just freaking cut it off, then it would have been GREAT, but instead, they crammed religion down our throats. My best friend and I were pretty shocked at the religious tones of a "mainstream" films. REALLY annoying. Other than that, it had some great moments!
Great acting, great action, good suspense, some twists and very nice special effects. Leaves some unanswered questions, but overall, fulfills the desire to go escape for a few hours and be entertained.
Nicolas, What's it like KNOWING that your career is going down the drain? This movie is hopeless and the Hollywood special effects do very little to enhance the experience. The movie: SAD, ABSURD, SILLY, MEANINGLESS, DARK, AND BORING. Nicolas Cage is such huge talent to waste himself on such nonsense! could be. Awful script. GREAT EFFECTS! Should have been in 3D!
Bad acting. Sloppy, easy-way-out ending. The less demanding will enjoy it.
As for me I kept going between gasping and groaning.
