Storyline

Las Vegas showroom magician Cris Johnson has a secret which torments him: he can see a few minutes into the future. Sick of the examinations he underwent as a child and the interest of the government and medical establishment in his power, he lies low under an assumed name in Vegas, performing cheap tricks and living off small-time gambling "winnings." But when a terrorist group threatens to detonate a nuclear device in Los Angeles, government agent Callie Ferris must use all her wiles to capture Cris and convince him to help her stop the cataclysm. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

Although most of the film was shot in HD with Panavision Genesis cameras, about a week of shooting was done on 35mm film because the location was forecast to be over 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and the filmmakers were concerned that the relatively new and under-tested Genesis would overheat and fail.

Remember the Future in a Great Action Movie
17 February 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When a group of terrorists threatens to explode a nuclear weapon in Los Angeles, FBI agent Callie Ferris (Julianne Moore) sees in the Las Vegas magician and smalltime crook Cris Johnson a.k.a. Frank Cadillac (Nicolas Cage) the hope to find where the device is hidden. Cris has the ability to foresee and change his future up to two minutes ahead, but is not receptive to the government proposal afraid of the experiments he was submitted when he was a child. While escaping from FBI, Cris meets the gorgeous Liz Cooper (Jessica Biel) in a cafeteria and he recalls that he had dreamed on her. Liz offers a lift to Cris and they immediately fall in love for each other. But agent Ferris wants to force Cris to help her at any cost while Liz is abducted by the terrorists.

"Next" is one of the best action movies I have recently seen, with an excellent and unpredictable story of the awesome Philip K. Dick; gripping screenplay with many twists that inclusive provides a hook for a possible sequel; and fine performances of three of my favorite contemporary actors and actresses: the sensational Nicolas Cage, the wonderful Julianne Moore and the sweet Jessica Biel. I really liked a lot the hilarious sequence when Cris is "studying" the best way to approach to Liz in the restaurant. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Vidente" ("The Fortuneteller")
