Still shot from the movie: Next.


The FBI is desperately looking for ways to stop America's enemies before they strike. That's why they want Cris Johnson (Nicolas Cage) -- not because he's a potential terrorist, but because he has the ability to see into the future. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Next Rated PG-13?

Action and peril are mixed with a few quiet moments of contemplation and romance as Nicholas Cage plays a man who is able to see a couple of minutes into the future. Violence is the biggest concern with countless people being shot and killed. A captive person is forced to wear an explosive vest that is detonated (we see this happen from a distance), and a man is captured and forcibly interrogated with a device that holds his eyelids open. Language includes infrequent moderate profanities and the mouthed and partial use of a sexual expletive. A man and woman, who have only known each other for a short while, have a sexual relationship—we only see them lying in bed afterward. A brief shot of a man reading a pornographic magazine (with what appears to be partially obscured topless women on the cover) is shown. Other possible content concerns include gambling portrayed in a casino environment, a man who appears to begin each day with a martini, as well as cigarette smoking by a principal and secondary character.
