In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.
In the fall of 1959, for a time capsule, students draw pictures of life as they imagine it will be in 50 years. Lucinda, an odd child who hears voices, swiftly writes a long string of numbers. In 2009, the capsule is opened; student Caleb Koestler gets Lucinda's "drawing" and his father John, an astrophysicist and grieving widower, takes a look. He discovers dates of disasters over the past 50 years with the number who died. Three dates remain, all coming soon. He investigates, learns of Lucinda, and looks for her family. He fears for his son, who's started to hear voices and who is visited by a silent stranger who shows him a vision of fire and destruction. What's going on?Written by
It took Alex Proyas three months to shoot the film, about half the time it took to shoot I, Robot (2004). He credits the use of digital technology for being able to shoot so quickly and efficiently. See more »
(at around 1h 11 mins) In Lucinda's house in the woods are newspaper articles attached to the walls, depicting past tragedies. The last one tells of a mine collapse in East Germany that killed 238 people. It was supposed to have happened in Luisenthal. The incident did actually happen, but Luisenthal is in Saarland, which is the most western part of Germany, which back then was a different country. Also the number of people who tragically died was higher, amounting to 299 persons dead. See more »
The weird thing about this review is that I watched it 3 years ago and I partially forgot things that went on in this movie. But it's fine, cause needless to say, it's a good movie, and I really enjoyed it back then, and it had me in the edge of my seat a few times, and the ending is epic as well, it deals with the idea that the world be at stake, and how eventually to save it.
I really liked it, and I might as well re-watch it, kudos to Nicolas Cage for his magnificent acting ! 7/10
