He can see the future. But can he escape it?
School teacher Johnny Smith (Christopher Walken) had a beautiful fiancée, a rewarding career and a fortunate life…until one tragic accident changed everything. After slamming into an 18-wheeler, Johnny is plunged into a five-year coma. When he awakens, he finds his true collision was with destiny—he now has the remarkable gift (or curse) of seeing into the future. From horror master Stephen King and Director David Cronenberg (Scanners, Dead Ringers), this supernatural thriller turns an everyday guy into a reluctant hero…saving children in danger, helping the police and finding a serial killer. But Johnny's next vision may be his most terrifying yet…

Based on the Stephen King novel, this film is one of my all time favourites. Christopher Walken gives a brilliantly moving portrayal of a man (Johnny Smith) who loses 5 years of his life to a coma and wakes in a specialist institute to discover he's gained psychic powers but lost his fiancée to another man.
I first saw this film in the eighties and Walken's acting skills blew me away; he gets so deep into the character's experiences that I feel what he was going through; the moment he discovers he's lost his girl, the fear, frustration and anger he feels about the power he's gained, the cruel media guy who calls him a freak which results in the death of his mum, the way his now married ex turns up, uses him and 'discards' him again (boy was I angry with her for treating him so mean), Walken's relationship with his screen parents which is incredibly moving and personal - I can't watch this film without my heart breaking for Johnny Smith.
Add to that sterling performances from the actors who play his parents, Tom Skerrit as the desperate sheriff trying to solve a speight of sex murders, Herbet Lom as his concerned, compassionate doctor and Martin Sheen as the dangerously ambitious wannabe senator - result - incredibly entertaining and heart wrenching film. I've watched it more times than I've had hot dinners. It never bores - and I always cry my heart out. IMO a must have for one's DVD collection.
Recommended to anyone who enjoys anything to do with the occult / a gripping story.
10 out of ten!
love this film if only for the tentative nature of any american presidency that follows on from this...
killer in said film an utter psycho - and he his the minimal point of reference - and the poor soul bedecked with issues such as second sight etc gets my vote and welcomed me into the wonderful and frightening world that is walken.
there isn't much one can say in reviews other than that you need to decide for yourself as to the worth of storyline and acting... i for one love this and it's worth hitting you over the head to get it..
