Some viewers tend to think this movie celebrated religion but I felt it was quite the opposite. It wasn't God but Aliens that took the kids in the end. Great film and 1 of my favorites. Never really understood the black rocks though.

I really enjoyed this movie. I don't usually post but just felt the need to do so. I actually went out and bought this film. It was creepy and touching at the same time.

It was ok, not great, not horrible. It didn't keep our interest and we would pause the movie to get something to drink or eat. It wasn't riveting and we would never watch it again.

This movie was ridiculous. They tried to incorporate religion and apocolypse into a sci-fi? What was with the four horsemen/aliens/angels in their spaceship, taking random people to a world of wheat?! The story was intricate and peplexing, but with no sensible ending.

Whatever else Proyas has done in Knowing, he has created an ending that is sure to divide audiences into camps of love it or hate it, deeming its message either hopeful or hopelessly heavy-handed. For me, it doesn't quite work; still I'm glad he took the risk. Full Review

The draggy, lurching two hours of Knowing will make you long for the end of the world, even as you worry that there will not be time for all your questions to be answered. Full Review

If you're of a mind to believe a dreary and far-fetched thriller about numerology-crazed alien life forms, then you may find the movie mildly diverting. Full Review

Science fiction fans will feel gypped, disaster movie fans will appreciate about 10 minutes of screen time and be bored by the rest, and no one else will care. Full Review
