Las Vegas showroom magician Cris Johnson has a secret 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 Ferris must use all her wiles to capture Cris and convince him to help her stop the cataclysm.

More Info:
  • Ella Taylor

    Directed by Lee Tamahori with his customary flash and glitter, Next lives from one brilliantly executed chase sequence to the next, which is more than enough reason to stay the course.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Wildly ridiculous and thoroughly entertaining thriller.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A watchably absurd popcorn flick about a man who can see two minutes into the future.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This isn't a bad movie; it's watchable but the direction in which the filmmakers choose to take it results in a vague sense of dissatisfaction.

  • Connie Ogle

    Next begins to seriously embarrass itself and its stars -- except for Biel, surprisingly, who manages to escape with a shred of dignity, possibly because her role requires little beyond looking gorgeous -- once it rolls to its climax.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Tamahori attempts to cover the ludicrousness of the story with a wickedly fast pace and sensational action set pieces. And in a film more than an hour and half long, events do whiz by.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It starts exploring different facets of its premise and transforms itself into a fairly competent suspense thriller. That's enough to make it respectable, but a few things keep Next from being lovable or memorable.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Ultimately, Next is just the next Nic Cage vehicle, another quirky story that allows him to do his patented neurotic balancing act in an askew world. The problem here is not just that Cage's shtick is wearing as thin as his hair; the role is a bad fit.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    It's noisy, nonsensical, and will fade from your consciousness even before you make it out of the theater lobby, but it's entertaining enough, and Tamahori throws us a few curve balls to keep things interesting.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Next may be the silliest movie of 2007.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    What starts out as a mildly diverting thriller blows itself to smithereens in the final reel.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Next bears some resemblance to another Dick adaptation, "Minority Report," about "pre-cogs" who can anticipate murders before they happen, but it doesn't really bother exploring the moral or emotional implications of Cage's power.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Despite an outlandish premise, Next suffers from being too conventional.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Next is clearly an attempt at a puzzle movie, one of those brainteaser pictures that lures viewers into another dimension, but it doesn't have the momentum, the quick-wittedness, to keep us wondering what's going to happen next. Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    For an action thriller based on a Dick story, Next is peculiarly low-tech and hokey.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    In Next, a crummy action and speculative-fiction hybrid, Nicolas Cage plays a guy who can see into the future two minutes at a time. It's too bad that Mr. Cage couldn't tap into those same powers of divination to save himself from making yet another inexplicably bad choice in roles.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Next, which makes "National Treasure" look like a model of narrative logic, is almost beyond criticism.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This implausible action thriller also stars Julianne Moore as an FBI agent who sees Cage's two-bit Vegas act and decides he can single-handedly save the world.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    This pseudo-Phildickian actioner is chum for the bigger fish to come this summer; for Moore, it's a slummer.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    When the story finally collapses in a heap at the end, you'll probably want your money back, but that's where the title comes in: "Next!"

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    An immediately forgettable action pic directed with a blowtorch by Lee Tamahori.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    As a thriller, Next goes a certain distance on Cage's sad-sack charm and sense of humor, but it does nothing with its intriguing premise, and it's mostly just one more tedious and progressively dumb collection of Hollywood action clichés.
