Regarding the film's grounding in science, director Alex Proyas said at a press conference, "The science was important. I wanted to make the movie credible.
So of course we researched as much as we could and tried to give it as much authenticity as we could".
Ian O'Neill of Discovery News criticized the film's solar flare plot line, pointing out that the most powerful solar flares could never incinerate Earthly cities.
Erin McCarthy of Popular Mechanics calls attention to the film's confusion of numerology , the occult's study of how numbers like dates of birth influence human affairs, with the ability of science to describe the world mathematically to make predictions about things like weather or create technology like cell phones.
Steve Biodrowski of Cinefantastique refers to the film's approach as disappointingly "pseudo-scientific". He writes, "Cage plays an astronomer, and his discussions with a colleague hint that the film may actually grapple with the question of predicting the future, perhaps even offer a plausible theory.
Unfortunately, this approach is abandoned as Koestler pursues the disasters, and the film eventually moves into a mystical approach". Asked about his research for the role, Nicolas Cage stated, "I grew up with a professor, so that was all the research I ever needed".
His father, August Coppola , was a professor of comparative literature at Cal State Long Beach. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Mendelsohn's passionate arguments, which are not technical yet are scientifically sound, raise the stakes. This is not a movie about psychic mumble-jumble; Koestler is a hard-headed scientist, too, or always thought he was, until that page of numbers came into his hands.
By "scientifically sound," I don't mean anyone at MIT is going to find the plot other than preposterous. So it is -- but not while the movie is playing.
It works as science fiction, which often changes one coordinate in an otherwise logical world just to see what might happen. For Koestler, it leads to a rejection of what he has always believed, to his acceptance of the paranormal, and to his discovery of Diana Rose Byrne , the daughter of little Lucinda who wrote down the numbers, and Abby, the granddaughter Lara Robinson again.
He believes these two children are somehow instrumental in the developing scenario, and he bonds with Diana to protect them from evil strangers in the woods -- who are mostly kept far enough away in long shots to prevent them from seeming more strange than they must.
The logic of the story leads us to expect something really spectacular at the end, and I was not disappointed visually, although I have logical questions that are sort of beside the point.
With expert and confident storytelling, Proyas strings together events that keep tension at a high pitch all through the film.
Even a few quiet, human moments have something coiling beneath. Pluck this movie, and it vibrates. Even something we've seen countless times, like a car pursuit, works here because of the meaning of the pursuit, and the high stakes.
The film has sensational special effects, which again I won't describe. You'll know the ones I mean.
This is one of those, and yet it isn't. It doesn't bore you, it doesn't make you feel like you've seen it before, and yet you have a comfortability with it that intrigues you throughout.
I found myself quite entertained and the movie didn't lose my attention or have me checking my watch.
Good direction and acting. Nicholas Cage does a good job. I believe anyone who sees this movie will enjoy it for what it is. Go see it, it's a fun flick!
