Adapted from a short story, but loosely, Next (96 mins, 12A) is the latest instance of Hollywood raiding the work of sci-fi writer Philip K Dick for a neat conceit for a big-budget chase movie - but jettisoning its philosophical subtext. Nicolas Cage gives another overly earnest performance as a man who can see a few minutes into the future; Julianne Moore plays the government agent who needs his help in foiling a gang of nuclear weapon-wielding terrorists.
