Cris Johnson can see a few minutes into the future, an extrasensory talent that comes in handy for his job as a magician and mentalist in a seedy Vegas club where he performs nightly. It also has its uses at the blackjack tables when Cris needs some extra cash.

But his talent is no mere parlor trick, and his dexterity with the portals of time has not gone totally unnoticed. Vegas security guards are watching through their all-seeing casino floor cameras, eager to decipher his knack for consistently beating the odds. And FBI counter-terror agent Callie Ferris, played by Julianne Moore, is eager to tap his brain to help thwart a terrorist group’s planned attack on Los Angeles with a weapon of mass destruction.

Dove Review

This film was entertaining and quite exciting, offering a new twist on the basic time-travel storyline. The plot was a little complicated, but the filmmaker did a pretty good job keeping viewers up-to-speed. I was only left with a couple questions as the credits rolled (backward, I might add). There was quite a bit of violence and lots of SWAT type gun fighting, and the filmmaker chose to kill several characters in an overly graphic way. Unfortunately, due to the violence and crude language, this film cannot be approved by Dove.
