Critical reaction to Know1ng has been unfavorable, even though it led at the box office this past weekend.
Helmer Alex Proyas has always made films that defy compartmentalizing—I, Robot (2004); Dark City (1998); and The Crow (1994)—and that makes things more difficult for the crix. Also, there were some themes in Know1ng that can be awkward for them, including life after death, determinism versus randomness, and (SPOILER: how someone might react if the world really were coming to an abrupt end).
Though it has its flaws, Know1ng is well worth your time. Read my complete review.
