“Next”

by Mizuho Aoki

Director: Lee Tamahori

Language: English

Yet another addition to Nicolas Cage’s list of bad choices (check out “The Wicker Man”; well, actually don’t!). In this adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel “The Golden Man,” Cage plays a magician with an ability to see two minutes into the future. When terrorists place a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles, the FBI (Julianne Moore and co.) decide Cage’s vision is the only chance of finding the weapon that’s about to devastate the city. The plot is ludicrous and the actors look drowsy, like they’re bored playing their roles.
