THE MOVIE KNOWING IS RELIGIOUS PROPAGANDA – WITH GREAT SPECIAL EFFECTS
Nicolas Cage does his worst acting job to date as a moping, depressed astrophysicist /MIT professor in “Knowing,”
who has lost his “faith.” He presents the dilemma of “determination” (God’s plan) versus “randomness” in his classroom and it’s clear by his miserable demeanor that he believes in randomness and therefore can come to no good end. Evangelical Christians are going to LOVE this movie because they enjoy predicting the inevitable apocalyptic events designed to punish mankind for not believing. The movie is also loaded with superstitions and religious symbols. (spoiler alert) The special effects doomsday catastrophes are spectacular – an airplane crash, a subway disaster, and the end of the world. But the rest of this two and a half hour movie is so insultingly DUMB, you’ll want your money back. We’d love to know which religious group financed this piece of propaganda – which by the way, is NOT a science fiction movie.
