A docent (Cage) opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son's initial school; in it are some chilling predictions -- some that have already occurred and others that are yon to -- that leading position him to swear by his kids plays a position in the events that are with regard to to unfold
A wise man once said, "Don't go looking for disaster, it will find you soon enough." Apparently Nicolas Cage's astrophysicist, John Koestler, missed class that day because as soon as he discovers where and when upcoming disasters will occur, he drops son Caleb off at his sister's place, furrows his brow and heads straight into the maelstrom.
But then, every disaster movie needs an unlikely hero and Knowing, a moody and sometimes ideologically provocative film, has just the hero it needs in the MIT professor who subscribes to the notion that everything that happens in life is nothing more than a series of random events. Who better to face down a New Age-style Armageddon steeped in spirituality, numerology, alien visitors and end-of-days philosophy than ...
Knowing A scientist uncovers a long-buried list of numbers that may prophesize disaster. Apocalyptic sci-fi thriller starring Nicolas Cage

"If you want to believe, you go ahead and believe."
Nicolas Cage speaks these words to his son about life beyond Earth. But it might as well apply to Knowing's absurdly jumbled plot. If you're of a mind to believe a dreary and far-fetched thriller about numerology-crazed alien life forms, then you may find the movie mildly diverting.
But if you prefer an actor who has more than a couple of expressions and a story that makes sense, then remain un-Knowing.
Cage plays a widowed science professor with a precocious son (a lively Chandler Canterbury). The boy receives a portentous message in a time capsule buried at his school. Once the message gets into Cage's hands, he begins scrawling numbers on walls and growing weirdly distraught.
