Official C (au) wrote: This is probably the only film in the entire franchise where the filmmakers tried to make the action look exciting. Nevertheless, the dull characters remain dull and the wooden acting remains wooden.

Phyllis K (br) wrote: What a come down for Michelle Pfieffer having to deliver a line about a bunch of old Barbies her character's daughter wants to give away..."eeeyyeww they are all naked and skinny...put them away it reminds me of a concentration camp". Any actor who would stoop to this level of of discourse on screen is obviously suffering from a severe lack of NOT bother seeing this. Ms. Pfieffer you should be ashamed.

William C (es) wrote: Now Nicolas Cage was once seen as a fine actor, even winning awards and many people wanting him to star in their films. But now although he is wanted for peoples films, it does seem that around the time he did this movie, only bad movies wanted him, or he was choosing them himself. This is an example of bad acting, and how a movie suffers because of it and coupled with bad directing and writing too, you fast come to realise that some movies just aren't that well made.It kind of made me a little sad that Paramount ploughed $70 million dollars into this movie when it quite obviously could have been used on something much more thought provoking. Now don't get me wrong this film has it's moments and the premise isn't so bad, a guy can see two minutes into the future meaning he basically can just get away from everyone who ever is after him and also run an albeit poor magic show. The story plays out like any other typical movie plot, well maybe not all of it but the set up is anyway, the ending is different I'll give it that, but also kind of annoying too.Cage isn't the only person here giving nothing to their character, Julianne Moore is poor too and when the actors so highly regarded are not good at what they do, you know this movie is hazardous. Jessica Biel joins the poor acting parade and along with Cage makes no effort to create any chemistry or feeling and that by the end you feel there is nowhere for this movie to go. Lee Tamahori is the director and it is just not good whatsoever, not only does he make the poor acting look even worse, he also just couldn't make the Sci-Fi like plot exciting.Now I'm not going to sit here and say for 96 minutes I watched a movie that nearly killed me(maybe shouldn't have used the word hazardous), but this movie isn't one that is very enjoyable. It has it's moments of stunts, thrills and car chases plus a few gun battles to spice things up, but there in lies the problem. The movie could have been mindful and really struck a cord about what time means to people, what could we do with Cage's power in which we only really see showcased within the first 30 minutes in a way that looks cool.I do want to think of some positives, after all I stuck by this and said it was a bad movie and not an awful one, oh I am nice. The score isn't half bad, shame it had to be used on this movie but Mark Isham creates a nice blend of instruments to make some scenes kind of thrilling. I also felt the camera angles were nice, it followed the action nicely and yet again maybe made them slightly better, David Tattersall making a good job out of a bad movie.Overall this is one movie I would recommend you miss, now of course you get people who enjoy this kind of stuff and fair enough, but just watch this carefully and tell me it isn't lazy work. I do hope one day I can see Nicolas Cage fine again, I want to see every actor do well and every film as well but Cage at this stage of his career seems lost, it's as if he wants to make bad movies and really working with Tamahori turned out to be a bad decision.

Bob S (mx) wrote: I miss the simple but nostalgic movies of this era. Don't get fooled that this is another sports movie. This film uses baseball as a metaphor for a teenager's unfulfilled dreams. You'll be sent to a time when playing catch with your father brought tremendous joy, when your first crush brought unimaginable thrills and heartache, and when your best friend didn't need a trendy acronym to be forever. Sure plenty of the acting was undesirable (Foster & Jenkins aside), but the trip down memory lane was worth it.

Terror A (mx) wrote: This is absolutely terrible horror film that has a potentially good premise but it fails to capitalize on it. It starts off promising enough but it goes down hill very fucking fast. The performances, the direction and the script were all terrible. Skip it!

John M (au) wrote: Jean Renoir's improvisational little comedy about a polish princess in a farcical little love quadrangle. I might have switched it off halfway through were I not infatuated with Ingrid Bergman, who does quite well here. Some good laughs are had at the expense of officious politicians, but the wackier aspects of french comedy elude me.
