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.

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

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).

More effort has gone into the effects, yet the action amounts to little more than dodging projectiles. I'm very concerned about director Tamahori, who used to make interesting movies about masculinity but doesn't seem to have a grip on the helm here.

A schlocky mix of bad special effects and worse Cage hairdos.

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

Once you know the rules, it's hardly worth playing. Especially when you find out you've been tricked.

Colossal waste of time.

Late in the movie, Cris shouts at a bad guy, 'I've seen every possible ending here. None of them are good for you.' It's as if he's talking to the audience, and alas, he's right.

It [explores] different facets of its premise and transforms itself into a fairly competent suspense thriller.

Cage is cool, quiet and a touch melancholy as Johnson -- carrying the burden of his gift with a brooding brow and a ready punch line.

It doesn't have the momentum, the quick-wittedness, to keep us wondering what's going to happen next.

It's too bad that Mr. Cage couldn't tap into those powers to save himself from another bad choice in roles.

Next, which makes National Treasure look like a model of narrative logic, is almost beyond criticism.
Apr 27, 2007
A routine action film with strange bits of surreal time-flopping mixed in.

Next begins to seriously embarrass itself and its stars once it rolls to its climax.
Apr 27, 2007
Next comes across like a standard clock-puncher for almost everyone involved.
Apr 27, 2007
Directed by Lee Tamahori with his customary flash and glitter, Next lives from one brilliantly executed chase sequence to the next, which is more than enough reason to stay the course.

Despite an outlandish premise, Next suffers from being too conventional.
