History professor Ted Myles (Cage) winds up with a mysterious page filled with seemingly random numbers. He soon discovers that the numbers represent every major disaster of the last 50 years with frightening accuracy. And, naturally, he also learns that he is part of the enigma, and the only one who can prevent further catastrophes, the last being the end of the world. Dark, dreary, sci-fi, quasi-religious, peri-apocalyptic pabulum is so bad, you will wish for the world to end rather than endure another painful minute. Various aspects make this flick laughable, including Cage, as usual, taking himself way too seriously and the movie opening with a flaming moose running in slow motion (seriously).
Could have been a good plot... Zamees at 2010-12-20 10:09:48
Like most movies now a days, the premise was there, but the movie just fell flat. The ending had nothing to do with the overall plot. My choices in movies are now questioned by my household because of movies like this.
I love watching movies of all types and consider myself to be open minded when reviewing films but in this case I can only say that this movie was an absolute piece of crap. I feel like I raped my brain by sitting through 90 minutes of some of the worst acting I have ever seen. The only redeeming part of this movie was the special effects and the ending.
