  1. This is definitely a contender for the worst movie ever made. Acting? Who needs it. Story? Ridiculous at best. Special effects? Mind boggling-ly awful. Suspense? Non-existent. I regret spending the 2 dollars to see this “movie” at my local cheap theater. Do not own, rent, view or be near this film at any time ever.

  2. I don’t know why I do this to myself. I always try to challenge the editor or critic and go ahead and watch films. Knowing was just about as dismal as the editor had pointed out. Midway during this film it got so self-involved I had no idea what sort of logic the main character was basing his theories on. The last scene was just the cake. It is sad to see that so much money and resources were wasted on this film and by no means am I being sarcastic. Cage was horrid, his reactions to every given situation was one of a sad dog denied a bite of Oreo.

  3. This movie didn’t deserve neither 2 hours of my life I’ve wasted on it, nor the long reviews it has gotten. Sheesh… Basically, the main idea the movie is promoting to be a sheep and accept whatever “higher powers” send down onto you… How quaint. Last scene with angels traveling in spaceships was simply “mind blowing”.

  4. Should have been called “The Rapture” or “Yo, Jesus!” I want my two hours back. Seriously, not too cool of the studio to masquerade this “make good with the christian god” movie as some sort of scifi/mystery/thriller 🙁

    The only things I can’t figure out: how did Kirk Cameron hide his involvement, and which ‘left behind’ movie was this supposed to be?

  5. ‘Knowing’ is the story of the Scientology offshoot started by Nicholas Cage which is also in my local strip club, a favorite area of the club for many visitors. The story is the first fim to feature Nicholas Cage appearing only as a special effect. The CGI used is state of the art and dumps on ‘The Furious Case of Benji Button’ released before this fim but using a previous version of the same software used to graft Brad Pitts face onto a body that was either a baby or or an old man either of which were not his. Here, this latest build of the software provides the viewer with a glimpse into the future of fim with digitally rendered actors being used instead of the actual source actor. This is why the fim is called Knowing.

    The idea of using digital actors was first explored in Arnold Scwarzeneggers classic, ‘The Runny Man’, a fim about the effects of cholera on prisoners made to compete on a television programme like a futuristic in an 80’s fashion Gladiators to the death. Arnold gets to the quarter of a final before he is fazed out by Killian the TV evil boss. He uses a digital overlay to make the viewers at home in the fim believe that Arnold was killed by a spike in the ring. He survived though and beats the boss after he said I’ll be back.

    The story in ‘Knowing’ is based on Nicholas Cage’s splinter sub church of Scientology called Church of Cage Gaugeism. This church accepts most of the central tenets of the Scientologists except for the bit about metal Jesus. Cage believes that Peter Weller is the reincarnation of space Jesus after he disappeared from the scene after the success of Robocop 1 and 2. Peter became the recipient of visions and sounds which made him delirious with a complete way of thinking based upon scientology but an added a bit about him being the new version of metal Jesus 2.0.

    This film transposes metal Jesus’ life with unrelated scenes based not entirely on anything to do with this or anything. A girl fifty years before Nicholas Cage works out by contrived plot devices that the numbers she wrote not drew relate to dates of disasters and death rates from the past and up to the current future as in towards the end of the fim she writes numbers instead of drawing a picture that seemingly have no purpose, yet. The school locks her in the basement for being weird and she tries to scratch her way out. This is a direct relationship to metal Jesus’ time in the wilderness.

    A plane crashes near to Nicholas Cage on a road when he realises that the SatNav is telling him that he is where the plane is about to crash into the ground badly. He just about dives out of the way to be a survivor/looter as he goes around with fake fire stuck to his special effect ragdoll digital avatar. No actor would be insured to do this and what a waste of a plain. The SatNav is the burning bush.

    As for the rest of the fim if you watch it with the sound down and overlay the ‘Fantasia’ soundtrack by Walt Disney, who is frozen, you can appreciate the digital Nicholas Cage without the heavily theological sernmonising of Weller and Cage’s own brand of celebrity religious factionism. A great fim let down by militant on set crew disputes and poor quality dubbing and lighting and scripting and dolly grip. Five stars for the technology to allow Knickerless Cage to stay at home safe while real people get hurt.
