THE FUTURE IS LISTENING.
Cop John Sullivan (Jim Caviezel) is going through a tough time when he accidentally gets in touch with his father (Dennis Quaid) on a ham radio, speaking to him from 1969. How do you create credibility in a movie where a father and a son help each other track down a serial killer through two different dimensions of time? Well, it becomes a question of either buying the concept or not. Gregory Hoblit is a good director who knows how to create tension, and the stars are engaging. Struggling with illogical ingredients and a conclusion that’s too much make-believe, the film is still entertaining stuff.
