Watch Next - Alternative Versions.
Next is a much better movie than I expected to see, having read some of
the reviews which called it disjointed and silly. Quite to the
contrary, I found it deeply absorbing. I quickly picked up on the
elements which must have caused some reviewers to accuse it of being
disjointed, and began enjoying them. Of course silliness is part of any
sci-fi story, we suspend our critical senses in that regard or we do
not become sci-fi fans.
I single out one performer among a fine cast. Julianne Moore has really
established herself as *the* deadpan action queen. She was a better
Agent Starling than Jody Foster was, and she's a terrific, dominant
presence in this film. Kudos to her for propelling herself to the top
of a tough genre. She makes films more interesting to watch, by dint of
her strong performances.
I read Phillip K. Dick's "The Golden Man" many years ago and still
remember a lot of it. When I first began hearing about this movie I
immediately flashed to it and wondered if this was a movie of that
intriguing story. The answers are "yes" and "no." "The Golden Man" is a
much more ordinary story, but with resounding insights on the
consequences of his existence. And his skin was a compellingly
attractive rich golden hue, which helped make him irresistible to
women. None of that fits this new story, and was properly omitted.
What is translated so well from the written page to the screen is the
government's intense interest in him (although for different reasons),
its efforts to get him under official control, and the exceeding
difficulty of doing so. And of course, the story ends in a wholly
different way than the movie, a very satisfying and inevitable
conclusion that bolsters Mr. Dick's reputation for opening the future

I just have to add, the flurry of action sequences which come like a
staccato rendition of The Flight Of The Bumblebee during his escape
from custody, is thoroughly delectable and brought more than one
involuntary "Ha!" from the audience I saw it with, including from me.
It's one of the tastiest treats in the film.
And finally, yes, I too wish I knew who the heck these terrorists were
and what the heck they were trying to accomplish with their nefarious
plot. But I guess that's the brave new world we live in. We just don't
get to hear the bad guys' dialogue, their reasons for doing the things
they do. In that way Next is giving us another insight, not dropping us
cold as others have complained. The only legitimate beef I agree with
is the entirely unnecessary and just plain goofy Nicholas Cage business
during the final pursuit. It looks like it must have been an idea of
somebody too high up among the moguls to deny, but it is a definite
distraction causing "Huh? What?" moments when the action is at its most
All in all, a feather in everybody's cap and a movie I fully recommend
without reservation. Drama, humor, really fine action sequences,
twists, great characters. As baseball great Yogi Berra once said, "
Don't miss it if you can."
