Item description for Judgment (Apocalypse #4) by Andre Van Heerden, Corbin Bernsen & MR T...
Overview It is the imminent future. The world follows one government and one man. It is a world of peace, yet some still fight the authorities.
To crush the dissent, the ruler arranges a trial of unprecedented proportion. A trial in the world court to be televised to a global audience. A trial that would see Helen Hannah, a Christian and a champion of the resistance, convicted and executed for hatred of the human race.
Everything is prepared and only humiliation and death await the accused. There is only one small problem… Mitch Kendrick, the defense attorney, has been tricked into representing Hannah, and now hunts for any way out.
In a clever twist he puts not Hannah, but her leader, the real scourge of this new world, to the test. Suddenly it is the biggest trial of history with the guilt or innocence of God himself hanging in the balance.
While appearing loyal to the new world order, Kendrick at first defends Hannah's God for his own pride. But as he listens to her, he realizes that she might be telling the truth.
Threatened by a hired assassin and the world leader himself, Kendrick still fights for more answers . Memories of a misunderstood father, the love of a tortured woman, and the glare of the world all bear down, as the trial rushes to a conclusion.
Within the final verdict lay the lives of the innocent, the ruling against God, and the destiny of a lost soul.

More About Andre Van Heerden, Corbin Bernsen & MR T
Usually I can't stand films from Cloud Ten Pictures,as I have tried 3 times to watch the ridiculous Left Behind(but I loved the 12 book series),and the acting is so bad and the hokey idea of the raptured people's clothes being neatly folded without a wrinkle,like just back from the cleaners,kills me!
This movie grabbed me from the begining and kept me absorbed through the end,plus I really was interested in all the characters, good and bad.The trial was great as well. So if you have been as disappointed with Cloud Ten pictures as I have,do yourself a favor and give Judgement a try.I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
" ... and Mr. T -- a kind of Christian B. A. Barracus." -- KFAV Radio Oct 7, 2006
Your Honor, I have only one argument to make in defense of this movie:
Mr. T is da bomb.
'Cuz yeah, it's a low-budget flick & all, with all the probs inherent in such an animal, but, then again, there IS the colorful cast of characters to consider & none is more colorfuller than Mr. T -- dontcha know?
I beg pardon? Oh yeah. Colorfuller. Um ... I just made that word up, Your Honor, because I'm trying to express how Mr. T made -- I said MADE -- this movie for me ... Ya dig?
Good movie, but for a Christian film, it has false teachings Jul 29, 2006
I thought the movie had a good storyline, and the actors did their jobs well (although Mr. T had a stereotypical Mr. T performance).
The one thing that really puzzles me is this : The movie claims to be a Christian film, however Mitch (played by Corbin Bernsen) wears a fake mark of the beast on his right hand, and he comes out in the movie as the "hero". The Bible clearly states that anybody who takes the mark of the beast will go to Hell. My belief is that in God's eyes, wearing a fake mark of the beast would be no different than wearing the real thing.
Plus, there are some continuity errors in this film as it relates to the whole "Apocalypse" series. In the 2nd film ("Revelations") and 3rd film ("Tribulation"), the mark of the beast is presented as a 666 burnt into people's hands by Franco Macalousso by way of the "image of the beast" virtual reality helmet (thankfully the hokey VR helmet concept did not make it to "Judgement"). In "Judgement", the mark is represented as a different design.
The film is entertaining, but I find the whole "hero who has a fake mark of the beast is still a hero at the end" angle to be rather unsettling.
not very good Feb 19, 2006
Poor introduction and background. Low-budget film that has few locations. Mr. T can't act unless it is humorous. The lawyers acted well. The story just wasn't very good.
Just wished it wasn't the last Feb 6, 2006
Comparing this movie to the previous three APOCALYPSE series movies, this one seemed to drag its heels like the court case. Jessica Steen made Victoria Thorne a really unlikeable character that you wished you could see her final fate as a lawyer who sold herself to the devil. (Of course, if you have the DVD, you could see one of the deleted scenes where Franco Maccalusso does send her and the judge, though both of them barely seen, to their final fates -- a scene I wish could have been in the main cut.) Corben Bernsen's character struggles under both hiding out as a uncommitted person bearing a fake "mark of the beast" to avoid death on either side of the battle of the ages, and with the manipulation he seems to be getting from both his former lover and the various One World Nation agents that he comes across throughout the whole thing. Mr. T's character is basically Mr. T sounding like he's trying to do evangelism in his typical B.A. Barracas style of personality. Overall, it's too bad that this had to be the last movie of the series, leaving things that started out in Apocalypse eternally unresolved -- imagine the LEFT BEHIND series never reaching the 12th book Glorious Appearing to get the idea.
