I was hoping for a 'straight-to-video' fate for this but I won't have to wait long, I suppose. The film having been 'released' (or perhaps 'exhumed'), let us sharpen up the knives one more time in the company of the following reviews...
"The film is so vastly different (and inferior) to the short story I wonder a bit why they even felt the need to option the story." [ Total Dick-Head tells it like it is ]
"Next can not compete with comparable movies with Nicolas Cage like National treasure and surely not with The rock." [ I assume Geoffrey means 'the Rock' the film, not the ex-wrestler, but perhaps not ]
"I wasn't sure if everything was real...like the color of Cage's hair." [ T.J., not as keen as her husband ]
"There were just too many holes to make it really entertaining..." [ A 'christ-follower' cannot suspend his disbelief, at least where this film is concerned ]
"I gave the movie a 79.95. You can round it up to a B-, because Jessica Biel walks around in a towel, but if you’re a hard grader it’s a C+." [ Now that's a rating system ]
"Instead of the standard English villains, Next features French ones. It was kind of weird, but the movie never explains why they were French." [ Perhaps explanation of that sort of thing is unnecessary for the American market? ]
"As they exchange meaningful looks beside a towering waterfall, with cute little kids scampering amid the sunbeams, we can feel the movie begin to sag irreversibly." [ More damnation from VH1.com - but the reviewer also says Minority Report was 'very good'. Oh well... ]
However, it's not all bad -
The thing about cheese is that it's supposed to give you nightmares, isn't it?
