Released 2007 Rating 12A in UK
Director Lee Tamahori Writer/s Gary Goldman, Jonathan Hensleigh, Paul Bernbaum
Starring Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, Jessica Biel, Peter Falk
Source of story A novel by Phillip K Dick “The Golden Man”.
Elevator Pitch A small time magician working in Las Vegas can see a short time into the future, apart from events involving a young woman. He is able to make money by gambling and comes to the attention of both the FBI and a group of terrorists who are to plant an atomic bomb in New York. He meets the young woman (of his dreams?) and so the future plays out.
Content Some minor violence, the magician get together with the woman, and finally they seem to have become lovers. There is a lot of action with the FBI battling with the terrorists.
A View Initially this movie seems to be tolerable, and the main players get on pretty well, but as time passes it becomes more and more unacceptable as the plot moves away from the rules set by the exposition. Disliked by the critics, it cost $70,000,000 and did not get much of it back.
