People are all over the place with regard to this movie. I liked it. Nicholas Cage plays pretty much the same character as he always plays, but we love him in our house. (One of my daughter’s favourite movies is Moonstruck.) The movie opens with a scene 50 years previously where a school is creating a time capsule. Each kid draws a picture for the capsule which, when opened in the present day, are distributed to the current pupils. Case’s son receives a note with rows of numbers. Cage figures out, through a set of circumstances, that the numbers correspond with dates of disasters and there are still a few left that haven’t happened yet. What a burden, you think – us too. A little cheesy with the concept of ‘there’s no such thing as coincidence’ screaming at you throughout. No extraordinary performances, but a fun family flick with plenty to talk about afterwards.
