while the film deals with disaster, it's not quite the cinematic disaster that many were expecting.

The plot, too, is a sham (shades of Signs and Close Encounters), and Proyas's slick visuals do little to dress it up.

... the movie features huge gaps in logic, and human behavior that can't even begin to be justified.

Presságio é o que Sinais e Os Esquecidos tentaram desesperadamente ser.

Paste Magazine

Trades occasional moments of inspiration for obvious allegory and second-hand action sequences that shoot for stark seriousness but can barely pass for pop spectacle.

Knowing's premise is intriguing, even if it ends up being a familiar race-against-time-disaster-movie.

Aisle Seat

The movie has all the thematic depth of a really great arthouse film wrapped in the action and excitement of a first-rate Hollywood action picture.

If... you want your 'sense of wonder' piqued, and are willing to contemplate some big and possibly alien concepts, this takes you to some unexpected places.

Rather like watching an intricately arranged set of dominos starting to topple. That's neat. I didn't see that one coming, you think, as yet another train carriage joins the pile-up.

The final message may be trite, even saccharine, but Knowing would be pretty well unbearable without it. Proyas has made a truly haunting and terrifying film.

I'm a bit on the fence with Knowing. It is well made, and bleak as hell, but just has a little too much going on for me to recommend it.

A mind-blowing blend of apocalyptic imagery and metaphysical discussion that is easily the best film of its type since "Southland Tales" (and I should stress that I mean that as a compliment).

Well done for 100 minutes; then it completely falls apart.

Times [UK]

As well as being perversely pessimistic for a blockbuster, it's rendered tedious by a dense plot and lifeless characters. Even M Night Shyamalan would have done a better job. How dare such an empty film ask us to endure many realistic scenes of carnage?

Observer [UK]

It's intriguing B-feature apocalypse, determinism versus free-will stuff.

It has a wicked premise and many fascinating themes but, overall, it becomes a little bit silly towards the end.

I like the sheer quantity of ideas in this film, but I am not sure that they all fit so nicely together. I expect with some thought the flaws will seem less important and the audacity of the plot will win out.

It predicts a future when people act courageously and selflessly to preserve their families and the future of mankind. I can get behind that.

It probably helps that the trailer flatlined our expectations, but the engaging, unconventional Knowing certainly qualifies as a pleasant surprise.
