Nicolas Cage and Rose Byrne in KNOWING.

KNOWING... I saw the Nicolas Cage film last weekend, and um...hmm. So wait— Is this movie trying to be like War of the Worlds (both the old one and the 2005 Spielberg version), The Day the Earth Stood Still (both the old one and last year’s Keanu Reeves version), Independence Day (ID4), The Day After Tomorrow or National Treasure (meets The Da Vinci Code)? Apparently, all of the above. Yea, I don’t think this movie is obviously gonna be nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars next year...

John Koestler (Nicolas Cage) witnesses a plane crash in KNOWING.

On the other hand, if the aliens’ destruction of Los Angeles, New York City and Washington D.C. in Independence Day looked as cool as the destruction of New York City in Knowing, then ID4 would’ve definitely been a shoo-in for the Best Visual Effects Oscar in '97. If ID4 hadn’t won the VFX Oscar that year already, that is. That is all.

Mysterious figures lurk outside a house in KNOWING.
