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.
