Tedious, inept propaganda
This movie is the secret love-child of a Jack T. Chick tract and one of
those "heartwarming" Christian propaganda anecdotes that have been
circulating on the internet since the nineties. You know, the ones in
which a mean, cynical atheist makes fun of a poor, oppressed Christian
using a pompous, verbose argument which sounds impressive because it
contains big words, but doesn't actually make any sense, and gets his
come-uppance when his "argument" is "refuted" by some emotive
sound-bytes from the Christian.
There is in fact a scene exactly like this somewhere in the first half
of the movie, which is all that I could endure before flipping to the
end of the DVD to see if anything exciting happened. Nothing did.
As science-fiction, the movie is ludicrous and unbelievable. It sets up
a completely implausible and illogical view of the future. Setting
aside the gimmick of the "implant" (which has a powerful, magical
effect on your *brain* in spite of being implanted in your *hand*), why
is someone in a maximum security prison run by a society which
apparently practices rigid censorship allowed to have a bible,
supposedly a heretical work? Why are the prisoners allowed to decorate
their cells with beautifully and neatly executed graffiti of biblical
quotations? Where do they get their art supplies? How did the evil
implanted stormtroopers manage to massacre huge numbers of people in
armed attacks if they appear to value personal self-preservation above
everything else, including *defending the very survival of their
The evil society is simply not believable, because it is a caricature
of everything that modern fundamentalist Christians disapprove of
blended with symbolism from the Book of Revelations. Are we supposed to
be disturbed by the drones because they are sexually promiscuous? With
*gasp* partners of both sexes? Oh, noes! The horror! I bet they've also
massacred half the planet!
If you are the sort of person who reads those chain letters and thinks
"Oh wow, that is such a well-reasoned argument! Let me forward this to
everyone in my address book!" then you will probably adore this movie.
If you are the kind of person who thinks "Who sent me this crap
*again*?", then I suggest you stay away..

love rush hour awesome movie .
Left behind series: the Word was followed closely, I loved it Fireproof: Just when I needed a film about true relationships in accordance with the Lord's Word.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the best movie I have seen to date. I love movies that are set to old days and the old ways. It will keep you engrossed the entire length of the movie. Brad Pitt did an awesome job portraying old Benjamin. This is a must see..
Twelve Monkeys is one of the best. Great storyline and a great cast. Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt were a perfect team and both were really good crazy people!!.
twilight series good to me .
Excellent Ministry Tool
I have loved this movie from the first time I saw it aired on TBN. I
have told many people about this movie. It is one of the most accurate
depictions of the how I believe the tribulation time will be, based on
scripture. God's saving grace (power) that is present today will, one
day, be removed from this world and many who have never heard the truth
will - out of fear - follow darkness. It is the sole mission of
Believers now to tell those that are lost about God's love, forgiveness
& salvation. I don't believe I will be present to 'see this movie
played out', but true to the Word, millions will be. If you are a
Believer and have friends that are not yet in the Kingdom, I challenge
you to begin to share the truth with them - often. If verbal witnessing
is uncomfortable for you, (or if your walk lacks the power, authority
or even presence of God enough to bring others to the Saving knowledge
of Christ) minister to your friends or loved ones by sharing this
I'd like to obtain a copy for my ministry\\witnessing library. I am sure
the lives of whoever has seen or will see this movie will never been
the same. Saved or unsaved will be given something to think about.
