|Oh. Mega-crud Nov 6, 2006|
|OK, it's a here-comes-the-millenium, there-go-the-prophecies sort of flick. Micheal York is the grinning antichrist, but he's the only one I recognized. (The others may be happy not to be recognized.) This time, the oracular foretellings come from the bible code, that humorous exercise that proves that, once you get enough stuff piled together, bizarre coincidences become compulsory. Just to make sure that we really believe the oracle, it's a computer. We all know that computers are never wrong (or at least mighty hard to argue with), so the prophecies must be true. |
And they keep springing out of the machine, with each one arriving at the moment when its message becomes dramatically necessary. I'm not sure how that bible figured out just which messages were needed when, since it was written so many thousands of years ago, but it got the times right to within about ten minutes. Dang, that's one smart bible. Not smart enough to deliver that final fortune cookie without the mysterious Omega Code being plugged in. Why biblical passages written in Hebrew needed a Greek code to open themselves up, I'll never know - but it just shows that the bible isn't just smart, it's sneaky.
Then, just when all the pieces come together, the movie stops. I don't mean that it ends, in the sense of having an ending. It just runs out of minutes and goes away. All we get is one final message saying, pretty much, "Have a nice millenium."
It could have been worse. That clever bible coder could have added a :) smiley. The movie probably had one until outraged theater owners started sending cleaning bills and orders for barf bags.
|Disappointed in Da Vinci Code? May 25, 2006|
|If you were disappointed in The Da Vinci Code, perhaps this political thriller with religious overtones will satisfy you more. It stars Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) as a motivational speaker who falls in with rising world leader Michael York (Logan's Run), unaware that the latter is manipulating world events using the "Bible Code" -- prophecies coded in the bible. |
The acting is good and the story suspenseful enough to keep you interested. Michael Ironside (Watchers, Total Recall, Free Willy, Andromeda, Seaquest, Smallville, etc. etc.) is very good as York's executive officer and assassin. A good blend of suspense, action, special effects, mystery and intrigue.
|Worst movie ever. Mar 25, 2006|
|I saw this a while back, it is without a doubt the worst movie I have ever seen in my whole life. I wish I had the pleasure of never having seen it.|
|Extremely disappointing Nov 8, 2005|
|I like to see quality movies produced which share what I believe to be the truths of the scriptures in a way which a non-Christian would find competent and challenging. As a Christian, I tried to cut this movie a lot of slack but still found it extremely disappointing. Even if the main point of a movie is evangelization, why can't it also be well-written, dramatic and engaging? I have seen many "end times" movies and most appear to have been put together rather poorly, perhaps in the belief that the truth of the scriptures underlying the script would somehow make up for it's shortcomings. The producers of Omega Code apparently were under this same belief even though they accomplished a lot with the limited budget they had to work with, as evidenced by the use of some fairly well-known actors and some decent sets and special effects. Unfortunately, it appears very little of the budget was used to hire a good script writer. No exaggeration, much of the dialog is on a par with some of the cheesiest movies I have even seen. You'll feel like you're watching one of the very early 1950's sci-fi flicks, the kind they make fun of on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Casper Van Dien's character was flat out ridiculous. I found it difficult to even take him seriously. I admire Michael York but his acting ability could not overcome the simplistic lines he was given. His role as the antichrist was poorly developed and disjoint. His character kept taking great leaps ahead "career-wise" for the sake of following the scriptures, but without sufficient development of the plot to make those advances seem realistic. If you're well versed in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelations it might be fairly easy for you to understand what's happening with York's character, but most non-Christians will likely be left wondering what the heck is going on. I wanted to shut this movie off early but hung in there until the end so I could give it a fair review. I'm sorry to say it rates only 2-stars.|
|Christian End Times Film. Michael York is Superb. Oct 19, 2005|
|This is a Christian film that is about the antichrist rising to power in our civilization(in the last days). People should understand that there is more to this film than just fast action and hot sex scenes. This movie does not have that and it does not need to because this is about the last days. Christian and Non Christians should wake up in knowing that the end is near. Even though this is a movie but you should be happy(in real life) that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back soon in order to rule this world. So change for the better, accept Jesus Christ and hope for the best that you get picked up during the Rapture. On the movie, Michael York plays his character quite well...he is hilarious but in real life the antichrist will want to hurt you and send you to hell. Movie is recommended. Christian movies are made for a purpose and even though some might be slow or fast they all point to the fact that one must love the Lord Christ forever. That is the message in all of the films. |
