Sigourney Weaver plays a psychology professor who specializes in debunking those who claim they have powers or abilities to heal, predict the future or have special mental powers.
Robert De Niro plays her nemesis, a sharp and dark power who claims he truly has special powers and in the course of the movie is willing to be subject to tests to prove his powers.
The premise is decent, but the plot pacing is slow, and the kicker at the end comes too late.
This is a more unusual movie, which doesn’t seem to be sure whether it wants to be a dramatic movie or a suspense thriller. And despite the presence of some heavyweights, they can’t quite save the movie from being a rental movie at best.
