Tamahori and the phalanx of writers implode Dick's intriguing premise into a pedantic thriller.

Nobody said this had to be great art, but why couldn't it be a satisfying thrill machine?

This busy sci-fi thriller often seems like a page full of equations rendered meaningless by an early misplaced decimal point.

It's debatable whether Cage's supernatural ability is any more interesting than his strange coiffure.

Predictable Cage sci-fi tale may entertain teens.

Someone that can change the future like Cage does here is a bit like Superman, but without any Kryptonite . . .

Suffice it to say that I'm a big time warp movie fan and this is a good one.

Obscurely motivated terrorists with Eastern European accents are preparing to explode a hydrogen bomb in Los Angeles.

Another failed attempt to bring Dick's deliriously paranoid mind-set to the screen.

Despite a distracting hairdo, Nicolas Cage delivers a solid performance in this fast-paced actioner.

Next isn't a great movie, but I enjoyed it anyway.

Philip K. Dick is credited as the source of the film. That poor giant of SciFi has been more abused posthumously than anyone else of his genius.

Yes, Cage is woefully miscast, but he isn't what derails the movie.

It's noisy, nonsensical, and will fade from your consciousness even before you make it out of the theater lobby, but it's entertaining enough, and Tamahori throws us a few curve balls to keep things interesting.

It's all complete nonsense, of course, hampered by a clunky script and Tamahori's uneven direction (which elicits unintentional laughter throughout and, unforgivably, a dull performance from Nic Cage).

A truly great bad film, one for future generations to ponder and consider and then turn away.

Everything that happens is preposterous, and the filmmakers make no attempt to help us forget it.

The premise is wildly preposterous, yet Nicolas Cage makes Next fun to watch

El vidente es una de esas películas que se pueden ver sin problemas, pues es bastante entretenida, pero que al final deja el sentimiento de que al espectador se le quiso tomar el pelo.
