Acerca de la película
Academy Award® Winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Leaving Las Vegas) stars in KNOWING, a gripping action-thriller of global proportions about a professor who stumbles on terrifying predictions about the future—and sets out to prevent them from coming true. In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead. Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule's contents and the girl's cryptic message ends up in the hands of young CALEB KOESTLER. But it is Caleb's father, professor JOHN KOESTLER (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As John further unravels the document's chilling secrets, he realizes the document foretells three additional events—the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve John and his son. When John's attempts to alert the authorities fall on deaf ears, he takes it upon himself to try to prevent more destruction from taking place. With the reluctant help of DIANA WAYLAND (Rose Byrne) and ABBY WAYLAND, the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, John's increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster—and the ultimate sacrifice.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If Alex Proyas' Knowing were reasonably entertaining -- instead of just dour, pointless and tedious -- it would be a camp classic.
Rotten: There's nothing really special about this film, other than an interesting premise.
Rotten: Things started to fall off of the deep end very quickly.
Rotten: It's a folly and a failure, but an intriguing one - an ambitious vision from a tremendous filmmaker that, sadly, had too much going on with not enough to say.

excellent, and a few remarks
One thought I have shortly after the movie ended (which is when I am writing this, after reading all the other reviews) is that this movie may have the best CGI and special effects I have seen in any movie (though it's not like I've seen all the potential contenders). Second, it is irritating to read reviews containing spoilers, which a couple of reviews do (at the time of writing this). I consider saying whether the ending was happy or sad or uplifting or depressing, etc., as a spoiler (which at least one review does); and especially a no-no is mentioning a specific plot event that happens at the end (which at least one other does). Third, this is just my opinion, but I completely disagree with the host of people whining about the "ending" (when exactly does the end begin?). Like Dark City, also directed by Alex Proyas, this movie has an artistically excellent and thought-provoking plot development/resolution. Maybe a surprising apparent shift in plot is indicative not of a defect in the movie but rather either as an intentional surprising development of the storyline mid-stream (who says good stories can't be like this?) or as a call to revise one's understanding of what comes before in the light of what comes after, re-interpreting the former in the more complete context of the latter so that the apparent discontinuity is seen to be only apparent. Another potential stumbling block for some people may be the mysteriousness and lack of clarification concerning certain events and characters; I found myself wanting more explanation and interpretation and fleshing out of certain things. But this, as far as I can see, is not a defect at all. The movie is 2 hours long as it is; and maybe much of what happens is intended to provoke thoughts and speculation into the more detailed nature and context of the events that are transpiring (and the reasons behind them). Much food for thought is given concerning both spiritual and scientific matters (and additionally, as many reviewers seem to miss, the movie potentially challenges the assumption that there is a stark dichotomy between entities or events traditionally classified under one and not the other - maybe some stereotypes need to be re-assessed?). Cage is excellent as the lead actor, and the movie is excellent, thought-provoking, and spell-binding in parts. It raises big and deep questions about the existence of something transcendent (perhaps divine, though not necessarily), about the nature of reality as deterministic or open-ended, and about the point (and trajectory) of human existence in the larger scheme of things (and perhaps concerning a particularly moral scheme of things, though this is not pressed). For some these issues, or the angles at which the movie approaches them, may not be interesting, fine (everyone has their own priviliged styles/genres); but that's not the same thing as a perception of some objective fault with the movie.
This movie was very good until the last half hour then it got very unrealistic and had nothing to do with the rest of the movie
Spoiler! The ending makes complete sense for those who say it didnt follow the plot. The ending is God destoying the Earth to restart just like Noah's ark, its obvious, the two rabbits and deer they saw in the headlights when they got to the trailer home, and the people are angels! DUH! Yes the ending was wierd but it follows the plot and I think the movie was great. You just need a some what understanding of Noah's Ark to understand the ending and enjoy it.
