From the pen of the author of Blade Runner and Minority Report comes one of the most entertaining action thrillers we’ve seen in quite a while. Yes, I really do mean that.

Under the name of “Frank Cadillac,” Chris Johnson (Nicholas Cage) performs a second-rate magic show in Las Vegas. The truth is that he really is clairvoyant, though can only see two minutes into the future, and only in his own life. On the showing of a low-profile but positive winning streak in a local casino, the FBI’s Callie Ferris (Jolianne Moore) believes that he is the man to help them stop a fanatical group of French terrorists from detonating a stolen atomic bomb. Chris manages to leave Las Vegas with Liz – (Jessica Biel) a girl he’s seen farther into his future than he’s even known before – but by this time the terrorists also know of his existence and want to kill him!. So it becomes a race between the FBI and the terrorists as to who finds him first.

And at this stage, the movie’s not even half over yet…

Watch for Peter Falk (remember him as Colombo?) as Chris’s elderly pal, Irv.
Las Vegas showroom magician Cris Johnson has a secret which is a gift and a curse which torments him: he can see a few minutes into the future.

Sick of the examinations he underwent as a child and the interest of the government and medical establishment in his power, he lies low under an assumed name in Vegas, performing cheap tricks and living off small-time gambling "winnings."

But when a terrorist group threatens to detonate a nuclear device in Los Angeles, government agent Callie Ferns must use all her wiles to capture Cris and convince him to help her stop the cataclysm.

Unfortunately, Cage's career (and hairstyle) seem to be getting progressively worse. The premise of this film was interesting, that our hero can see into the future, and the FBI needs his help in locating a nuclear device being planted by European terrorists. Amazingly, the scriptwriters totally mess up this original idea. Firstly, our hero, Cris Johnson, can only see 2 minutes into the future. How exactly is a 2 minute window of opportunity supposed to help locate a nuclear bomb? Not much room for error there. Secondly, the whole 2 minutes into the future thing, the rules for that changes for no credible reason. He can suddenly see a whole day into the future of a young girl, whom he falls in love with. (And he happens to be double her age, AND they fall in love, one day after meeting?!) And to make matters worse, he doesn't want to help the FBI at first, which leads to the Feds and the bad guys on his trail. WHY??? He's not interested in saving Los Angeles. If they had left him alone, they could have gotten on with their dastardly plot. The acting is atrocious, the special effect are cartoonishly pathetic, and the ending is the worst cop-out in movie history. Try not to throw your shoe into your TV screen in disgust once the credits roll, that's the way I felt. Bad, oh so bad.
