Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This busy sci-fi thriller often seems like a page full of equations rendered meaningless by an early misplaced decimal point."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"A schlocky mix of bad special effects and worse Cage hairdos."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Tamahori and the phalanx of writers implode Dick's intriguing premise into a pedantic thriller."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
"Predictable Cage sci-fi tale may entertain teens."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Obscurely motivated terrorists with Eastern European accents are preparing to explode a hydrogen bomb in Los Angeles."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Another failed attempt to bring Dick's deliriously paranoid mind-set to the screen."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Once you know the rules, it's hardly worth playing. Especially when you find out you've been tricked."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Nobody said this had to be great art, but why couldn't it be a satisfying thrill machine?"
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Someone that can change the future like Cage does here is a bit like Superman, but without any Kryptonite . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Despite a distracting hairdo, Nicolas Cage delivers a solid performance in this fast-paced actioner."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"Next features Nicolas Cage as a clairvoyant who can see events before they occur. If anyone on the production team had similar abilities, they could have foreseen that the film was a folly in the making."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Colossal waste of time."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"It's debatable whether Cage's supernatural ability is any more interesting than his strange coiffure."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Suffice it to say that I'm a big time warp movie fan and this is a good one."
‑ Tony Medley,
"Next isn't a great movie, but I enjoyed it anyway."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
