First I'd like to say that Knowing was a good movie. I was looking at this movie on imdb and noticed it wasnt placed under sci fi where I would of thought it would of been because the aliens and the predictions but it wasn't. Any thought why this is?

Aliens and predictions are not part of sci-fi anymore. They are reality. I saw it as well, and me and my wife loved it.
They should make more of these, for they're a wake up call for many people.

I think they placed it in action, as the trailers emphasized the action sequences. The movie was also released early to get a head start on the huge budgeted "2012". It is an action movie, not a science fiction film.

I'll wait until it hits cable.

The producers and film marketers decide what category to make the movie. It may also be considered science fiction because of the aliens, but they want to sell the action of the picture to teenage boys.

NO, this movie was very good and worth every penny spent. Oh, and I'm not a 16 year old kid either. I'm 23, and yes that is still young, but I thought this movie had a very gripping story line.

I'll put it this way, I didn't fully catch the plot until the end. I was expecting Mr. Cage to be the cliche hero figure of the movie, and I was very much impressed with the turn out.

Go see it, you won't be dissapointed.

saw it during the weekend and loved it. I thought this was the best movie in 2009 so far. I was surpised to see that aliens were responsible for the voices in the childrens heads. I really liked the ending can't say that I saw that kinda ending coming.

I was just explaining why it is called an action movie. I have not seen it although Roger Ebert gave the film four stars, and he is generally tough on movies.

I just walked in the door from seeing "Knowing"
The only thing I know is that N. Cage is a pisspoor actor. His character was only believable for the first 15min of the film. The story was OK and held together for most of the film. Pretty predictable for any fan of the genre.

But the action sequences were worth the price of admission and the scrip was interesting, tight and well written. I'm not one for just CGI but this movie was pure genius by the computer, green screen geeks in post production.

And direction/production for such a huge project was good. This movie will make a lot of money. Isn't that what filmmaking is all about ultimately?

**** Warning - this post may contain spoilers. ****


It was alright, not great. There were still some plot points that were left unexplained. Particularly, the relevance of the black stones. Also, why give the predictions 50 years in the past when there was no way to stop the disasters or save anyone?

I have not seen the movie, but have figured it is one of those setups by Hollywood, to get people conditioned to something.

Doesn't the world end in it?

I am hearing how good of a movie it is, but I don't like disaster movies where the world ends.

There sure seems to be very intense movies out this year, regarding disasterous events.

It's really not that good...

I've posted a lot of replies on the other thread www.abovetopsecret.com... so am not going to repeat myself.

But it's actually quite laughable.... yeah the message...blah blah...
What if you already know the message and are interested in these things anyway?

The acting is terrible and the storyline borders on (or more accurately is) ludicrous.... i mean... the last 30 mins are absolutely ridiculous and ruin the movie.

No worries.... but don't take my word for it... you may like it.
I didn't mean to put you off... One persons crap movie is another persons favourite ya know?


I think as a story and a concept it was good, it really should have worked.. but honestly, it's so bad it's almost good.
As i said, the acting is awful from cage and the kids and the story goes from ridiculous to just plain unbelievable...

But hey, different strokes and all that

doesn't the world end at the end of the movie?

I thought that was what it was all about.

Cage just figured out when it would end?

**Spoilers**


**Spoilers**



Yes.... it does, and visually it's stunning to watch... but what happens with the kids and where they go is just cringe-worthy.

I actually nearly threw up in my mouth a little


I think a book of this would be awesome, but the movie is just over-hyped, poorly acted trash.

Visually stunning....but for those that need more from a movie than a few nice effects... don't bother..... on the flip side, as i said, you may like it so don't just take my word for it.
