Knowing is another-end-of-the-world movie. Compare to the other movies with the same concept like The Day After Tomorrow and The Day the Earth Stood Still, this one is very different. The drama was a bit exciting with a taste of suspense. There's always the mystery part in every film that Nicolas Cage is carrying with him.
The story revolves around the College instructor who decrypt a series of numbers on a piece of paper. The paper was buried underground for 50 years. The codes he decrypted is telling the date, coordinates where it will happen and the number of casualty killed to that disaster. These disasters were happened in the last 50 years. What's more interesting is the codes are telling a disaster that isn't happening yet. That's the plot of the movie.
I may not be as smart and bright as you think, but I really love mystery movies and series even though I'm having a hard time absorbing it. It really helps my comprehension, memory and reasoning improves. In that way, when I resolve the mystery all by myself even without revealing it in the movie, I feel so smart and brilliant! After that, I give the movie a good review. A good example in the movie is the series of code John Koestler (Cage) acquired from his child. Though the intention is not really to get the audience think on how to decrypt the codes, it was revealed earlier in the movie. I really got impress the way John resolved it. People like him is very rare. I really like the way it was presented in the movie. If it wasn't Nicolas Cage who portrayed the role, the movie won't passed my standards, lolz!
