There are things that go great together like Peanut Butter and Jelly or Ketchup and French Fries. Then there are others that are the Hell spawn of Satan himself and this movie collaboration is surely one of them. Teaming The Asylum home of the worst movies out there with a Christian propaganda movie that makes fun of The Omega Code or any other post Apocalypse Christian film.
This combination not only fails it fails on all levels. With critics and average Joe's alike blasting this movie. It is not safe from redemption and if it was to be the final movie I had to watch before being saved. I would choose not being saved as I can not watch this ever again. Sadly my sentiment on this movie is shared by many. With several blasting it to a point that they want it removed from the record as a Christian film
Which is funny as it is more a Sci-Fiction crapfest than a real Christian movie. As they linked the Mayans and Jesus in a ancient temple. Then had a group of people who all are all American except for one Mexican become the new disciples of Christ. Talk about blasphemy to the millionth degree there. That and the second coming of Jesus was told by the Mayans and a woman the Mexican.
Was the vessel for the new Lord and Savior of what was left of humanity. Yep got to love these movies. They are so awful that they give me migraines and make me wish for a noose to end it all. Just so I do not have to watch another one of these horrible films. But that would be the easy way out and I am not going to do that. Instead I choose to watch them and then write reviews like this.
So that you folks out there do not have to watch these. So that you are not subjugated to such horrible movie making. But instead can focus on those good films that are out there. So do me a favor be you a Christian, Atheist, Muslim or any other religion. Avoid this movie as it is not only insulting and horrible. It is down right not worth watching as it leaves with more head scratching than answers.
My Rating Negative - 3/5 Stars
