Movie Summary

Director:
Lee Tamahori
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG-13
Next stars Nicholas Cage as magician Cris Johnson, a small time Vegas strip showman with a stunning secret. Johnson's superhuman ability to see two minutes into the future has him on the run, hiding out in seedy Las Vegas clubs avoid the doctors and researchers who wish to study his gift, something he had to endure as a child. Living a quiet life and staying under the radar is his ultimate plan, that and pulling small time gambling cons. Callie Ferris (Julianne Moore) is a FBI agent with her own problems. A terrorist organization has threatened to detonate a nuclear bomb on U.S. soil and it is Callie's responsibility to make sure this attack does not happen. Callie is desperate to prevent this cataclysmic attack and Cris Johnson's secret talent might just be her only hope. Next is an entertaining nail-biter of a film, leaving you restlessly hanging to the edge of your seat until the very end.

    For an action thriller based on a Dick story, Next is peculiarly low-tech and hokey.
