Knowing
2009
When schoolteacher John Koestler opens a 50-year-old time capsule, he discovers a cryptic document that predicted recent disasters -- and a few still to come. Soon John becomes convinced that his family will play a role in an impending apocalypse.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This is a pretty dumb movie about pretty smart ideas. Too many rewrites left it crammed with inconsistencies and clich├ęs, and the dialogue is laughably bad. But it has a great hook at the start, and stunning disaster scenes that belong in a better film.
