Nicolas Cage stars as a Las Vegas magician who can see two minutes into his own future, which proves endlessly handy when he's onstage or working a casino but doesn't have much national security potential; why an FBI agent (Julianne Moore) would enlist him to save Los Angeles from nuclear terrorists is never satisfactorily explained. As a result this busy sci-fi thriller often seems like a page full of equations rendered meaningless by an early misplaced decimal point. When the story finally collapses in a heap at the end, you'll probably want your money back, but that's where the title comes in: “Next!” Lee Tamahori directed; with Jessica Biel and, briefly, Peter Falk. PG-13, 96 min.
