IF YOU CAN SEE THE FUTURE YOU CAN SAVE IT.
Las Vegas illusionist Cris Johnson (Nicolas Cage) can see two minutes into the future; federal agents want his help to stop terrorists, but he doesn’t feel like ending up a guinea pig. Another disappointment from director Lee Tamahori who takes a fascinating prospect from writer Philip K. Dick and turns it into an ultimately rather silly thriller with not enough action and a central love story that is hard to believe in. The actors make no difference, but the interesting concept is still enough to generate some excitement.
