Synopsis: A Las Vegas magician who can see into the future is pursued by FBI agents seeking to use his abilities to prevent a nuclear terrorist attack.


Reaction: Intriguing. Could be deeper, and some don't care for the ending, but this one actually works for me.


Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The film's translation in Russia is "The Prophet"
  • In the scene where Nicolas Cage is zapping through TV channels, he stops at one showing the movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, leaving it on for the FBI to listen to. The plot of "Dr. Strangelove" is about a rogue general attempting to start a nuclear holocaust with a wayward nuke. An obvious reference to the nuke in Next.
  • The Cliffhanger motel is actually a restaurant located on Highway 18 near Crestline, CA, in the San Bernardino Mountains.
  • The "girl with necklace" at his magic show is played by Alice Kim Cage, Nicolas Cage's wife.
  • The terrorists communicate in French and speak English with a French accent. But when the sniper misses his shot, he curses in Serbian.
