During the outdoor firefight at the dock, two cuts before the cut that shows the bad guys reaching the top of the ladder to the ship, three FBI agents in the foreground are seen shooting one bad guy amid some cargo containers. In the background on the right side of the frame, a strangely nonchalant terrorist is standing against a dark container, gun casually pointing straight up, watching the carnage. See more »

Keeps you watching to find out what happens "Next" ...
It was really interesting to watch this movie because it took the "ability to see the future" idea in a slightly new direction. The lead character can see the future, but only what happens to him and only 2 minutes into the future. Furthermore, he lives his life laying low so as to not get any attention.
Now that is a cool idea for a movie ... and it takes off from there when he finally does get noticed. Nicolas Cage does a great job of playing the lead role of a guy who just wants to be left alone. Julianne Moore is very effective as the bright and ruthless government agent pursuing Cage for the "greater good."
The movie is engaging (you always want to find out what happens next) and you get to see an interesting idea played out: how can he use his amazing yet limited ability given critical challenges?
If you're a sci-fan and like the idea behind this movie, definitely catch this. For everyone else, I'd say it's a definite thumb's up.
