SPOILERS THOUGH YOU SHOULD READ THEM AND SAVE YOURSELF THE TROUBLE OF WATCHING THIS PILE OF SHITE

Oh I wish I didn’t know. What an abysmal film, an interesting concept where one child writes a page of numbers to put in a time capsule and 50 years later another child receives the page when the capsule is opened at his school. Then the shiny, stretched face of Nicolas Cage strains to make an expression throughout the rest of the film, with the appearance of raincoat-garbed strangers following his son giving a bludgeoning hint that things are going to end strangely (badly).

The upshot is that the numbers show a set of events where people die with the location and number of people. I missed the significance of the events on the sheet of paper but the original child didn’t get to finish the list and ended up scratching it on a door with her fingernails. When Stretch Cage gets the numbers by paint-stripping the door he eventually ends up at the location where his child and the granddaughter of the original child are, having been taken by the men in black. Confused? Disjointed? Disinterested? You will be.

The children are holding rabbits, another sledgehammer hint that they will be making like them as soon as they are old enough. The men in black are aliens *gasp* that turn into beings of light with wings. The once atheist rubber boy isn’t allowed to come along but as he now believes in an afterlife so IT’S OK HE’LL SEE THEM IN HEAVEN.

I can’t write anything else about this as I’ve lost too many brain cells.
