Item description for Six: The Mark Unleashed by Signal Hill Entertainment...
Overview In the last days before Armageddon, a brutal dictator rules the Earth. Using high-tech surveillance from satellites through a sophisticated chip implant, the Community Police Force infiltrates every facet of human existence, tracing each physical and digital footprint left behind. For humanity, freedom is just a fond memory and defiance means death. Two political prisoners (David White, Kevin Downes) meet a mysterious stranger (Stephen Baldwin) who holds the key to their escape and mankind's survival. Unbeknownst to the prisoners, CPF agents broker a deal with an inmate (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) for his life in exchange for betraying Christian renegades. These three unlikely allies must escape the executioner's blade, thwart a manhunt by elite CPF operatives (Amy Moon, Brad Heller) and join forces with the world's most wanted fugitive: the leader of the resistance (Cosimo Michael). If they fail, humanity will be marked for death, the resistance will collapse and every last life will have been taken by the enemy.
Three political prisoners during the tribulation period come to grips with the reality of the time they are in. They realize that to avoid being executed, they need to receive the mark of the beast. But, receiving the mark of the beast is a sure gateway to hell. To avoid this, they must try a daring escape in order to survive. As this plan and story unfolds, they are presented with another way out. They have 3 options: take the mark to live, try a deadly escape, or believe in and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This character driven drama is well produced with a solid cast.

Reviews - What do customers think about Six: The Mark Unleashed?
Surprisingly good production Jan 23, 2007
The producers of this film made some very wise choices - instead of trying to make a blockbuster film with their VERY modest budget, they chose instead to focus on the story and leaving what would otherwise have required some serious (and expensive) special effects, to your imagination. This works surprisingly well in this film.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is clearly spelled out, and gives a basically believable look at what the future of this very country (USA) holds if we continue on the path we are on...
Thought-provoking, and inspiring.
666, Losing One's Life, Saving One's Soul... Nov 24, 2006
The drama SIX takes place in the upcoming time of a totalitarian world ruler and follows men imprisoned for not yet taking the required "mark of the beast" upon the hand or forehead. We meet believers and unbelievers confronted with choices of life and death--death by guillotine line, something true to Revelation speaking of Christian beheadings, and a scene that reminded me of the Holocaust scenes of prisoners hung as a group in a line. Actual decapitation is not shown, and the movie is suitable for young teens and up.
Several of these actors also appeared in the movie The Moment After, which I recommend even more highly. Once again, though, actor Troy Winbush's screen time ends much too soon. Stephen Baldwin's delivers a subtle, convincing performance as a Spirit-filled prison pastor soon to be executed.
The story's rather simple, but a reminder to stand firm in the faith, that losing one's soul is worse than death. There is a good bit of scripture quoting, some while reading from prison cell walls entirely covered with Bible verses, something that at first required me to suspend my disbelief that this would be allowed. But then I remembered the writings from the Roman catacombs and cell of Bonhoeffer, and considered that the power of scripture might be unapprreciated by the future authorities, so perhaps it could happen. Anyway, overall, this is solid but simple endtimes entertainment.
"You Can Be Fearless" Oct 2, 2006
"Six: The Mark Unleashed" is a well paced end-times drama that though a low-budget production, will be highly entertaining for anyone who likes apocalyptic scenarios, and listening to a script that contains a lot of Scripture, though some non-Christians may even find it boring and not appreciate its message. The sets are minimal, as much of the film takes place within the confines of a prison, and the emphasis is on the character development of the people in the story. Those who have received the "Holy Implant" have chosen self-preservation at any cost, with life but no freedom, and those who remain true to their Christian beliefs and don't get "branded," accept martyrdom (by guillotine) as a better alternative. There are also those who are simply "underground," having not committed to Christianity, but fearing the implant. The implant is a reprogramming device that makes one conform to obey the Antichrist, during the years of Tribulation.
The film is overall very well acted, with producer/director Kevin Downes as Jerry, who is a car thief along with his buddy Brody, played by writer/producer David White. Also in the cast is Stephen Baldwin as Luke, and very impressive are Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Tom, and Troy Winbush as Lewis. The filmmakers made the most of every dollar they spent on this film, and gave their audience a fairly literate script, and an excellent cast. "Six: The Mark Unleashed" makes one think about the choices we make; as one character says at the end, "I still remember the last free choice I ever made...it was the wrong choice."
Great Movie Sep 4, 2006
Great movie based on the end times. Not just for Christians, but anyone with an interest in set-in-the-near-future apocalyptic movies and tv shows.
One reviewer states that Revelation (singular, there's no 's' on the end of that) was a warning against worshipping Nero. To my knowledge Nero never forced everyone to get a mark so they could buy and sell, and Christians wouldn't need to be warned against worshipping Nero - that's covered in the 10 commandments. Please, PLEASE, if you must slag off Christianity, at least say something you can support. And to the guy who compares Christian martyrs with suicide bombers, the key difference is that Christian martyrs DIE for their faith, suicide bombers KILL for theirs.
Ignorance like these examples is one of the prevailing enemies which Christians face in the modern world. Look at what's going on in the world, advancements in bio-technology offer a possible mark of the beast, wars in the middle east which may lead to the seven year peace deal foretold in the Book of Daniel. It's coming, and I hope that you realise that before it's too late for you.
Any criticism of Christianity is accepted and endured, but critisicm of any other religion is called intolerant.
Intolerance works both ways.
The end of the world according to Christians Aug 14, 2006
This movie is an interpretation of Revelations (which was actually a warning against about worshiping emperors such as Nero and Caligula). Stephen Baldwin has a part as an all knowing Christian who not only talks to God but God talks to him. I laughed when he came out of the shadows in a way that screamed "Look who's a Christian!". Oh good, a D-list actor "found" Jesus. I liked when he got a good beating. God didn't seem to warn him that was coming! And I loved the line a Christian used. "Your beliefs are irrelevant to the facts". Duh, yeah, why do you people get mad when I say that?
Actually, the acting by these unknown actors isn't bad. Fundies will love it, the rest of us might get a snicker or two out of it.
