Movie reviews for Knowing

2010-04-18  Peter Vesti: 5 out of 10
For the majority of this movie I really enjoyed it. Really cool atmosphere and mood. But then the ending spoiled everything. For me, this is the worst ending to a movie I have ever seen. They completely blew it. It seems like they came up with all these cool clues and then suddenly realized they had no idea how to tie it all together to form some kind of proper ending. So instead they came up with the most retarded solution ever.

I gave this movie a 5, purely because I thought most of it was really good. But the overall impression is extremely negative.

If they had removed guys with white hair, some black rocks and the ending this could easily have been a 8/10 movie. So disappointing!

Sorry to say, but this movie is way to predictable, and the ending is very bad. Though it is not a traditional Hollywood ending, which is a good thing, I didn't like it at all.

The acting is good and the production value pretty, but still the idea of destiny/"shit just happens" doesn't really make a good plot/story.

An okay Sunday movie, but nothing special.

The ending made me give the score 5 instead of 6...

Interesting movie with a silly conclusion.
The build-up is very nicely made, and the disaster is quite plausible, but the conclusion on the mystical part is just silly. It is like they couldn't find a way to end it and then just messed it up. Too bad really. It would have been a great movie.
