The plot is hinged around a predicament so overwhelming that its conclusion can't possibly resolve satisfactorily.

Nicolas Cage being Nicolas Cage in a film that requires Cage to be Cage.

The impressively grim finale ensures that Knowing ultimately ends on a decidedly memorable note...
November 24, 2011
A damned entertaining movie despite the fact that it stars Nicholas Cage.

Knowing is about faith; the belief that one day the mysteries of the universe will be explained to us, and the knowledge that anything is possible.

Pay attention to Mr. Proyas' lighting and set design as well as the intense disaster sequences that dot Knowing: As with the rest of his oeuvre, the movie looks great.

Knowing feels like a bunch of cool ideas that were strewn about a table, picked up, shoved together, tied up with duct tape and, somehow, managed to stay working for the ride.

Knowing is a bit of a revelation. Against all odds, it's not actually half bad.
July 22, 2009
Excessive finale aside, its novel concept makes for a mental and action package worth seeing.

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

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.

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.
April 2, 2009
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).
March 31, 2009
It's intriguing B-feature apocalypse, determinism versus free-will stuff.
March 31, 2009
It has a wicked premise and many fascinating themes but, overall, it becomes a little bit silly towards the end.
March 30, 2009
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.
March 28, 2009
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.
