'Next' is the next to last film for the amazing Peter Falk. The always enjoyable, always over the top Nic Cage tamps it down just a bit, but not too much to let the crazy out now and then for some 'Groundhog Day' type routines. Except the stakes are so much higher.
What is up with that goofy image from the film shown above? It looks like Lina Wermuller acting out the torture scene from Clockwork Orange. Nicolas Cage just flat out acts in way too many films now. This is the sound of one shark jumping over and over and over. At least they finally cancelled the Fonz. Retire for a while, Nic, Im sick of the sight of your dopey face in 10 films a year (and all of them garbage).
It's a very bad movie... that's all ! The screenplay is rotten, Nicolas Cage has never played as badly, Julianne Moore plays a character stereotype uninteresting ... and the final trick is a pretext for "surprise" the audience and give it a happy ending ... I'm sorry but no!
