NEXT (2007 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Next—great concept—needs a tad more story development, character development, and buffing of actor performance. Julianne Moore needs to be replaced with Sigourney Weaver, someone with a little stronger screen persona, or the script needs to give her more realistic dialogue applicable to her scenes. Her portrayal seems reminiscent of Sarah Jessica Parker’s in Did You Hear About the Morgans? It didn’t work and that is the same case here. Watch for Peter Falk’s appearance.

Storyline

Cris Johnson (Nicolas Cage) attracts FBI attention when the agency finds Cris routinely can see 2-minutes into the future.
