Format: Blu-ray
The director Alex Proyas never seems to disappoint me. This movie definitely puts an interesting twist on the disaster type movies. It offers up it's own explanation on how things came to be. And while this is as the previous poster said "Science Fiction" I love the way it's explains religion, just great a great interesting spin.

Acting was decent but maybe this is just me but Nick Cage hasn't really gone out of his character for a while. He seems like he's the same character in every movie I've seen him in recently. Oh well not a bad thing.

The picture quality on this Blu-ray is a 10 for me. Didn't notice anything too distracting except maybe the slightly sub par CGI which has nothing to do with PQ.

The sound I'd have to rate a 8 cause the action beats are WAY TOO LOAD.

All in all a great movie and a good Blu-ray to own. Definitely demo material here.

The previous reviewer criticised Knowing for being illogical and for having "some bits that are just downright dumb." I couldn't disagree more. The plot of Knowing makes perfect sense, but you need to approach it (or at least understand it) from a specific perspective.

Imagine for a moment that the basic ideas in the Bible are true: that the world was created by a powerful God, that angels exist, and that the events in Revelation are essentially correct. Now imagine that what we have in the Bible has been romanticised, that what the various writers in the Bible called "angels" aren't quite angels; that Ezekiel's "wheels within wheels" are technological rather than spiritual; that the rapture doesn't involve the rescue of believers but the rescue of the innocent.

Now, take those ideas and create a film around it, and you've got Knowing. If you can identify and recognise the various Christian elements in the film and understand how they fit together, particularly from a non-Christian perspective, you'll see that the story isn't illogical or "dumb," but perfectly sensible and certainly more credible than the plots of other disaster movies out there.

Knowing is a fascinating movie that's well worth your time, even for the judicious use of computer-generated visuals or the ending. It's an epic story that takes us from a very shallow perspective to a grander scale in the span of two hours -- and there's no other film I've seen that's like it. No, it's not The Godfather, but again, it's certainly worth your time.

Knowing(released Mar/09)starring Nicholas Cage,is an ambitious movie which works on several levels,trying to be many things,all leading to one bigger dynamic.Does it succeed?....let's see.
Cage is an astrophysics teacher,and a widower with a young boy to raise.With flashbacks we see that the public school his son attends is opening a time capsule,50 years after it was put into the ground.Back then a class was picked to submit drawings from each student to put into it.One student's submission was just a seeming jumble of numbers;meaningless.Each student upon the capsule's opening is given one of the letters,and Cage's son receives the page of numbers.He brings it home and dad takes a close look at it.Through some research he discovers the numbers are actually dates,map coordinates and a body count.The older dates and places correspond to incidents and accidents which have taken lives,quite accurately indeed.When he becomes personally involved in one of the incidents that has been seemingly predicted,he knows he has come upon something extraordinarily mind and life changing.
He finds out that the girl who originally wrote the paper has passed away,but he manages to track down her daughter,who herself has a young daughter.The daughter does not take his presence and persistence with any grace at all.She promptly leaves,wanting nothing to do with Cage.However circumstances will draw the pair back together.In the meantime Cage becomes personally involved with further predictions and incidents.Also his son is being increasingly visited by men,unknown.They talk to him,whispering,and telling him they want him to come with them.Cage eventually sees them too,but cannot understand their purpose.
When the two parents come together once more they go to her mothers house.

I had seen the trailer for this and eagerly awaited its release on Blu-ray. I wasn't disappointed. Nicolas Cage is excellent in his role with a very good supporting cast. The premise of the movie makes us all think about what's happening around us every day. It was a wonderfully exciting, fast paced "science fiction" movie. I could watch it over and over again. In my opinion, it's right up there with the best movies I've seen in a long time.

Great while it's still about disasters, suspense and investigation. A huge let down once it gets preachy and religious.

An ok renter if you aren't a critical thinker for plots, but not a dvd collection movie to watch several times.

Knowing is not going to win any awards but it is still a pretty good movie.The science fiction plot is interesting, the acting is good and the special effects are very good, at least I thought they were.There is a spectacular plane crash that is both horrifying and realistic.The sound on the blue-ray disc is loud but this is not a bad thing.If you have a sound system turn it up.For movie viewers, especially of science fiction you could do much worse.
