Everyone's a critic: 'Next'

Three stars (out of four)

"Next" wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be, but it wasn't disappointing, either.

The film follows Chris Johnson (played by Nicolas Cage), who can see two minutes into the future, but only if it involves his own life. The FBI has been tracking him and believes he can help them find an atomic bomb terrorists have set to go off somewhere in Los Angeles. The plot begins to thicken when he meets Jessica Biel because through her, he is able to see more than two minutes into the future.

The terrorists find Biel and use her to get to Cage, who comes to her rescue, so to speak. If you really want to go see this movie, I'd say go. It wasn't too bad, but I would suggest waiting until it comes out on video and renting it.
