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?
Plot: A teacher opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son’s elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions — some that have already occurred and others that are about to — that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.

***What if everything’s not just meaningless chance?***
A disillusioned professor in the Boston area (Nicolas Cage) acquires a document that has successfully predicted tragedies for the last fifty years, but new ones as well (!). Rose Byrne plays the daughter of the seer.
“Knowing” (2009) is a quality drama/mystery with elements of disaster/sci-fi and even a little horror. It’s along the lines of wonder-inducing flicks like “The Mothman Prophecies” (2002), “Contact” (1997), “The Forgotten” (2004), “The X-Files: Fight the Future” (1998), “Signs” (2002), “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (2008) and “War of the Worlds” (2005). If you favor the style and themes of those movies you’ll probably like this one.
The film runs 2 hours, 1 minute and was shot in Victoria, Australia, with establishing shots of the Boston/Cambridge area.
A very intriguing set-up, but not much else of note is found in _Knowing_.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Ok, so Nic Cage may not be the actor of the century but he does do poe faced well, lol. However this movie is highly under-rated. Chandler Canterbury is fantastic and the special Fx are some of the best ive ever seen. The storyline is also thought provoking and new. My only gripe is the ending, which wouldnt have been my choice.
Knowing how easy it is to sum up
‘Knowing’ can be summed up in four short words. Great film – rubbish ending.
SPOILER!! SPOILER!! SPOILER!! SPOILER!! READ FROM HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
The ending lets the whole movie down – yeah it’s not the happy ‘save the world’ ending we were (in a way) dreading. But that just certain kids were the only ones being saved and no adults at all was just ridiculous.
Have the producers, etc never read ‘The Lord of the Flies’? Kids do not do well on their own. They also do not just happily accept being taken by aliens to a strange new world; they do not happily accept not only the deaths of their families and friends (assuming friends are not of the ‘chosen’) but also the death – apparently – of even their planet.
Why couldn’t they have had the aliens stay with them as the ‘adult’ influence at the very least? Why were only certain children rescued, why no adults? Why were the children behaving like mini ‘stepford wives’ at the end, in spite of the trauma they had gone through? The film is fantastic up to the last fifteen minutes and then it all goes to hell in a handcart.
It was like the writer, and later the director, thought this was a good way to just end it as they were bored. Come up with some ridiculous reason to end the world – have the men in black (yes we all got that little ‘wheeze’) actually be the aliens, save the kiddies (punters like to see ‘little timmy’ survive) and there you have it; the perfect ending if you’ve got bored with your project.
Well, I can vouch for the fact it’s NOT. Next time, if you’re going to make a movie this good – make the ENDING as good too, or else we (the viewers) just feel cheated. If you get bored – walk away and let someone else finish it.
Out of 10 – I give it 4; and that’s just because of the rubbish ending.
