I went to the cinema earlier and saw Knowing.


To sum it up, it was a mixed bag and had some cliches in it.

The movie centered around a Teacher called John(Nicolas Cage) and his son Caleb(Chandler Canterbury) who are both suffering from the loss of wife/mother after she got killed in a fire. At Caleb’s School a ceremony involving opening up a 50 year old time capsule Caleb is given a letter with seemingly random set of numbers.

Later that night John reads into the letter and discovers that the numbers have a meaning to them. They were predictions for every major disaster in the last 50 years with perfect accuracy the date, how many died and where it would happen. He also discovers some that hadn’t occurred yet.

So we see John trying to prevent the disasters from happening.

Okay I can’t really got any further with this because it will spoil the movie.
All I can say that it had it’s flaws, some things that didn’t really make sense, and it didn’t take me long to see how it was going to play out because frankly I’ve seen it all before in another movie..not going to say what movie that was though.

I’ll give it a 6/10.

So, I say it isn’t necessarily worth seeing in the cinema, but at least worth a rental.
