Knowing

Knowing is Everything


Knowing
A hard-nosed scientist comes across a document from 50 years ago, with a long series of numbers on it. After careful analysis, he realises that it had predicted every major disaster of the last fifty years... with a few more yet to come. As he races to try and prevent these from happening, and taking care of two females directly connected to the author of the page, he comes to realise that there are mysterious forces working against him. Reviews have been mixed, although the special effects are said to be good.

Adam Nayman quote iconAlex Proyas' film merits consideration as the silliest apocalyptic pot-boiler of all time, edging out even M. Night Shymalan’s The Happening, with which it shares a certain sense of cosmic determinism: the notion that the Universe is, in fact, talking to you.

Tomatometer quote iconKnowing has some interesting ideas and a couple good scenes, but it's weighted down by its absurd plot and over-seriousness.
