The Epic battle of Good versus Evil Jul 09, 2001
By Rebecca of Amazon
"The Rebecca Review"
This film deals with the issues of who will own you soul. It is more of a thoughtful movie with good suspense. I especially enjoyed the "virtual reality" aspects. If you are into computers or enjoy computer games, this part of the story will intrigue you.
Already in our world there is hatred for Christian moral beliefs. It is only natural that those who hate God will try to convince Christians that they are either insane or are not intelligent enough for society.
Parts of the movie imply retraining and some of the members of a church are imprisoned and killed. There is quite a bit of violence, but nothing in comparison to most movies. I would not recommend this for children.
The main story is of a father searching for his daughter and wife who have disappeared in the rapture. Through his contact with the underground Christians, he learns about God and why these people are willing to die for God. The Christians in the movie are set up and are said to be terrorists.
There are many movies in the series I hope to be watching them all eventually.
If you enjoy this movie, you might also enjoy reading Mind Siege or reading the Tim LaHaye novels.

A Chilling Look Into The End Times Sep 03, 2000
By Steven Hancock
This film, the second in the "Apocalypse" trilogy, is a film that could kick butt if given full-theatrical release. This film takes a look at what might just occur within the next few years. Anyone with questions about the End times should buy this video. It will answer most of your questions, while filled with action, suspense, comedy, and Biblical prophecy.

The BEST Thiller Movie ever! Worth the price! Jun 04, 2000
By Buck Lewis
When I first went to pick up this video, I didn't exspect much. It was an Independent Film project, so I guess that is why it was 30$ dollars. Anyway, I took it home and put it in on my home theater. Boy, this was better then James Bond. It should have been longer and had more twists, if you have read the book that came along with it, you would know what I mean! It was the best Thiller ever and worth the price. Now the same guys who made this one, are making a whole other big movie that will be out later this fall, it is called: "Left Behind" and should be cool. Check out more informaton at: www.leftbehind.com Anyway, the movie is worth the price, and is the best movie I have seen in the pase few years! I still wonder why it wasn't a big hit at the box offices. Get it now, you won't regreat it!

Good actors Aug 28, 2005
By David Walther
Just saw the movie and I liked it allot. The story is perfect and the actors where brilliant. The only bad thing to this movie is that it is very easy to see that it is a low budget project. But I did not expect to see a "Lord of the Rings" production so it is not anoing after all.
I can warmly recomend this film to everyone interested in the last days to come. If this movie can be used to evangelise or make people come to Jesus is another question. I look at this film as firstly christian entertainment and maybe a wake up call for lazyheads.
Good luck and God bless

continues in the tradition of the popular �Left Behind� film Jan 17, 2002
By Maureen Ogorman
The final book of the Christian New Testament is called the "Book of Revelation". It relates prophecies, which deal with the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Worthy true believers will be taken en mass in to heaven during a period called "The Rapture" after this time confusion and turmoil reigns for those left on Earth. There will be false gods with false promises of peace and salvation. Many people will be beguiled by Satan and lose their souls while others will discover the true God and suffer for their new found faith.
"Revelation" continues in the tradition of the popular "Left Behind" series. It is a science fiction/adventure movie that takes place in modern times showing how those prophecies could come to life. The world has been thrown into chaos by the sudden disappearance of millions of people. For some this is a mysterious event for others it is the realization that the Christian way of life is the correct path to salvation. However, most people have been seduced by an evil dictator who has set himself up as a messiah brining peace to the world. Some people are in between; too cynical to believe totally in God or in the new leader.
Thorld Stone is one of the latter group. He desperately misses his wife and daughter, but he is not ready to embrace the new regime or the old religion. At times he is considered an enemy by both groups. Eventually Stone goes on the run and, along with some other agnostics, ends up hiding out with a group of Christians who are attempting to crack the Dictator's latest scheme for total control of the world. When those plans are discovered each person will face a choice that decides the fate of their soul and the world's existence.
This is a great idea for a movie, but I think that it comes off somewhat flat. The acting was a little too glib at points and a little too hammy and melodramatic at others. However the characters are painted so black and so white that it often seemed absurd that people could be so easily swayed. I thought that the best acting came from the charming relationship between Cindy and Willi. They had a refreshing and tender series of exchanges showing how life goes in even in troubled times. They were the only characters that I felt for and it made their tragedy even sadder than was written.
I thought that the script did a nice job of providing background for people unfamiliar with the book in the Bible. While this movie would not intimidate people who are not up on the Bible, at this level of quality, I am not sure how much interest they would have in it either.
