In the video lab where Buckley works, there is a copy of the famous poster "I Want To Believe" from The X-Files (1993), but the quote is changed to "I Want To Understand". See more »
At the beginning of the movie you hear a car driving with the gears changing on a manual transmission. However, when the car appears, it is a car that was never manufactured with a manual transmission. The car zooms down the road in the same scene with, again, the wrong automobile sounds. See more »
I was not expecting this movie to be the awesomeness that it was. De Niro and Weaver were the only reason I wanted to watch this movie, but I am glad I did!
This movie attacks the tired old concept of 'is ESP real?' with new vigour, new ideas and explanations. Not a single shot of the movie is unnecessary or a 'filler' shot. And none of the 'scary movie' theatrics to keep you on edge.
It has the right story line, right people and the right scenes to take you where it wants to take you, without the additional drama, not that it doesn't have some clever twists.
This is a 'clever' movie, doesn't spell out everything for you, makes you want to watch it carefully so as to not miss a thing. All in all, its one of the best thriller movies I have seen.
I completely recommend watching it!
