WHERE IS THE TRUTH Mar 28, 2007
I haven't a problem with Christian made movies at all. Frankly I'm tired of all the sick movies that are accepted by people today as normal. Maybe for them. The problem is aside from some decent acting, this is really a bad movie, and done on false pretense. There is nothing wrong with trying to give the message, but maybe with a little more honestly. If you're making a UFO movie, at least show something. "I don't believe in Aliens, but I believe in Demons". Classic bad line.
Awful - 1 Star for the Music Mar 20, 2007
I saw this tag - "This suspense filled movie will keep you on the edge of your seat and it will thrill and you and inspire your faith." --Dr. Jack Van Impe This guy must have been on drugs! There is NO suspense, "keep me on the edge of my seat"?? He must of had an investment in this movie and is trying to get his money back. I threw away the movie. I thought Hulk Hogan's "No Holds Barred" was the worst movie ever, but this one surpassed it 10 times over. Bottom Line Premise - UFOs are actually the Devil. If Jesus is not in your life you will go to Hell and might be visited by a UFO. Also you probably have some one in your family who's a nut and is a devil worshiper or a witch and likes rotten eggs. Heavy handed religious overtone that insulted my intelligence, with a "you better believe" just in case message in the end. Acting was amature, stiff, like out of a bad play of high school students. The music was the only saving grace. Don't buy it. I didn't, it was passed to me by a over zealous bible reading guy who told me I would learn the truth. This isn't a B movie, it's a Z!
Crazy Jesus BS Mar 4, 2007
Well I was the cover at Hollywood Video and rented it thinking "Cool a UFO movie". Boy was I rooked. This movie was a big old add for Jesus Corp. I guess it's a feeble retaliation to all the History Channel documentaries about how people of days long past probably saw UFOs and thought they were angels or God (because angels look like UFOs in the Bible a lot). The movie seems to take the stance that all the UFO sightings are somehow related to Old Scratch. Maybe if the acting was a less wooden it may have helped but I don't think so. The movie was insulting to religion, science and generally insulting to my intelligence. This is the perfect movie for you if you are a stupid, ignorant Jesus freak who wants an easy answer to death.
Good Pitch-Wrong Delivery Feb 24, 2007
"Unidentified" is a Christian-themed film that supposedly deals with the UFO phenomena. What it does, however, is take the UFO phenomena and bend it to fit into a message of salvation. There's nothing wrong with that at all, but a film promoting the Truth should make sure it has its facts right on the other "truths" in the film as well.
**SPOILERS** This tale centers around the "alien abductions" of people and two reporters sent out to cover their stories. One of the reporters is a firm non-believer and the other is a fence-sitter who isn't sure if he should accept Jesus as his Savior. As the story unfolds, we are told that all of the abductions are happening to people who are into the occult, witchcraft, drinking, etc. This ultimately leads up to a supposed "rapture" event that opens the eyes of the non-believing reporter. The only problem is that it's a hoax meant to force the non-believer to think and search out his soul. The situation with the abducted people is never resolved. We're just left to think that it was the Devil trying to scare people into not believing and since this one non-believer is saved, there's no need to continue the abductions.
So, here's where my problems with this film stand. First of all, not everyone who claims to have been abducted by aliens has an interest in things such as the occult, witchcraft, alcohol, etc. Many of them seem to be fine members of society. Secondly, scaring a person in the way that it was done in this film in order to save his soul comes off both cruel and unnecessary. Would you honestly want to go to church with people intent on scaring you to salvation? There's nothing wrong with explaining to someone why they should accept Jesus as their Savior, but tricking them into it is, well, just un-Christian. I was also surprised how easily the "Darren" character could entice people to become Christians. I don't know what planet he's on, but I've seen only a few cases where people are so abrasively presented with the Gospel message and so easily accepted it.
In essence, this film presents its message in a way typical of many (hopefully well-intentioned) self-proclaimed Christians. They try to jam it down the throats of non-believers and, in my opinion, do a better job of driving away potential Christians than actually convincing them to seek out the truth.
Before going one step further, I should state that I'm a Catholic (former Protestant). There are quite a few reasons why I left the Protestant belief system. As regarding this film and this review, one of the reasons I left was due to mean-spirited and hateful actions of so-called Christians trying to literally force people to become Christians. That's not the right way to do it in my opinion. I don't fault the actors, writers, director, etc. in this film for doing what they did, because I am sure that that is what they believe will bring people to Christ. However, I just wish Evangelical Christians would try a different tactic than forcing their religion on others.
So, I'll probably get a few nasty comments for this review. I'm prepared for that. But like St. Francis said so long ago: "Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words."
Great movie, great acting, great plot, great ending Jan 13, 2007
I saw this movie in theasters, and it is AWESOME! This is an extremely entertaning movie with a great spiritual message!
Two reporters working for Both sides magazine are assigned to do work on the oil crisis in Houston, Texas. However, when a rash of UFO sightings occur in the area, their boss sends them searching for the truth behind these sightings. However, it soon becomes clear that something is going on out there and it isn't anybody pulling a hoax to make money.
I highly reccommend this film for Christians and Non-Christians alike.
