Knowing (2009)

by

Opening a Massachusetts elementary school's time capsule after 50 years ought to be an exciting time, but the son of an MIT professor (Nicolas Cage) fishes a list of numbers out of the canister that predict world tragedies—and the Earth begins to crumble faster than it would in a Godzilla film.

If you thought the previews looked exciting (as I did), you should know there are empty plot promises and an annoyingly, inexplicably science fiction-laden conclusion.

I don't care how much you like Nic Cage; if you're not disappointed in the final quarter of this movie, I'm disappointed in you.
