Knowing (2009)

While working on updating my ETSY page, I decided to sit back and work on it with some Sci-Fi / end of the world entertainment. My selection for the evening, 2009s Knowing.

Plot/ A teacher opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son's elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions (some that have already occurred and others that are about to) that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.

This was sort of a mixed bag for me. The flick had a solid beginning complete with an interesting plot that did a great job of hooking you. Unfortunately, somewhere in the middle it drifted until it had an unbelievably bad ending. In all, there was some great cinematography, haunting images and a decent plot. Everything was not great though; there was some stale acting, very predictable moments and special effects that looked very contrived. Overall, this is a solid Sci-FI entry that is entertaining. Yes, it is not perfect, and sure, the ending may make you groan out loud, but there are many interesting and entertaining movies that do that.


  1. agreed, if the ending wasn't so out of left field it would've been pretty solid.

  2. I will surely recommend to watch this..Very nice movie.
