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

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.

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.

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

Its conceptual wit and its merciful brevity help it go down easy.

Not a bad film if you can overlook the basic silliness of the plot.

Lee Tamahori's thriller avoids all or most of the pitfalls that have ruined other time-manipulation films.

Establishes has a smart premise before it turns into another big, dumb action movie.

Asks the viewer to accept that Nicolas Cage can see into the future and that Jessica Biel would sleep with him. I'm not sure which qualifies the film as science fiction.

Thoroughly ridiculous yet basically entertaining...

Comes across as a thrilling, multi-faceted-but-phony-diamond of a chase and suspense yarn for the not-too-demanding that I, for one, enjoyed with my eyes wide open.

The movie itself is a standard sci-fi thriller that compared to others will hardly overwhelm, but the storyline and brevity (96 minutes) kept me engaged from start to finish.

Cage is at his worried and wild eyed best here as an artful dodger of fate, leaning on his 'advanced awareness' instincts.

Next boasts a fresh plot with a tricky twist ending that can be misconstrued if you don't pay close attention and then pause to think about it.

For better or worse, Next always has its eye on a perky pace and the occasional bubble-gum snap of amusement.

Next forces you to not just suspend your disbelief but take it out back and shoot it in the head.

Featuring a bare bones script that relies completely on the strength of its premise and not its characters, Next also has the courtesy to not overstay its welcome.
