Details Rated: PG-13; Length: 96 Minutes; Genres: Action/Adventure, Sci-fi and Fantasy; With: Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Next, an immediately forgettable action pic directed with a blowtorch by Lee Tamahori, has Nicolas Cage — his intensity always memorable — playing a guy who can see into the future for two minutes at a time. (His time frame of prescience widens, understandably, when it comes to predicting a golden Jessica Biel as the babe for him.) The vision thing makes him valuable to an FBI agent (Julianne Moore) trying to thwart a terrorist attack, but doesn't help the movie, a schlocky mix of bad special effects and worse Cage hairdos.
