Item description for Revelation (Apocalypse #2) by Jeff Fahey, Nick Mancuso & Carol Alt...
Overview In the movie Apocalypse, the unthinkable had happened. The buttons had been pushed and missiles filled the skies. In moments it would all be over. The entire world could only wait. Then it happened. The nukes simply vanished! And, even more amazingly, so did 187,000,000 people. The world had changed. The Reign of the Messiah had begun. Or so it seemed ...
Now, in the stunning sequel, , three months have passed. Counter-terrorism expert Thorold Stone (Jeff Fahey) is still trying to put the pieces of his life together. His wife and daughter were among those who vanished. Why them? Did they really stand in the way of world peace?
And, while peace has indeed come, something is amiss. An underground resistance is carrying out acts of brutal terrorism. Assigned to investigate, Stone discovers that these "haters" are actually being set-up ... by the Messiah's right hand man. Messiah ... just who is this new Supreme Leader of Earth?

Best of the bunch \o/ Dec 23, 2006
Lots of drama & a really cool sci-fi/virtual reality angle with a dash of horror ... FX not up to Hollywood standards, but the story is pretty solid & most of the acting excellent. Best one in the series, IMO.
I really got sucked into this one early on & the sci-fi thing simply blew me away -- I wasn't expecting that from a Christian movie. Hugs, kisses & lots of pats on the back to whoever thought of it.
I've seen them all now & I think this one is by far the best in the series, (although it is interesting to me how each movie approaches the endtimes from a COMPLETELY different angle -- which is bad in terms of continuity & yet good in terms of entertainment, because you never know what you're going to get when you start watching one of these flicks; the story is always a surprise).
DVD Revelation Mar 9, 2006
Excellent quality from both this site's end (shipping, packaging, timeliness) as well as the movie itself. I had the VCR tape already, and in a move to a DVD library, this was a must, and at an excellent price. This movie, as many recent Christian-produced movies, are finally showing the potential of A-rated quality movies. Christian film-making has had a lot of catching up to do, and this movie proves that this is not only happening, but the Lord is bringing His Word to the media in a way that will capture what He is after the most, not only by excellence in quality, but by His Spirit using that excellence. Jesus bless you.
Best of the series Nov 14, 2005
I have seen many of the "end times" movies and in my opinion this is one of the best. The plot was much more believable and the acting and dialogue were good. As a computer programmer, I was fascinated by the way the Antichrist character used computer technology to sway people to his side. If you think about how the world of technology has given us "virtual reality" as a first step toward their ultimate goal of creating a direct computer interface to the human mind, you soon realize this plot is very relevant to our times. This is the only movie of this genre that I find compelling enough to feel comfortable recommending to a non-Christian friend.
Good actors Aug 28, 2005
Just saw the movie and I liked it allot. The story is perfect and the actors where brilliant. The only bad thing to this movie is that it is very easy to see that it is a low budget project. But I did not expect to see a "Lord of the Rings" production so it is not anoing after all.
I can warmly recomend this film to everyone interested in the last days to come. If this movie can be used to evangelise or make people come to Jesus is another question. I look at this film as firstly christian entertainment and maybe a wake up call for lazyheads.
Good luck and God bless
Why God? Why A Sequel To Apocalypse? Jul 22, 2005
The end of time has often been the subject of movies, rarely are the movies any good. Most of the time the Hollywood studio producing the film, along with the screenwriter and director, have very little knowledge regarding the end of time as recorded in the Book of Revelation. There have been some attempts made to adapt this subject that haven't been altogether horrible, such as, "The Omega Code" and "Megiddo: The Omega Code 2". Due to an unfulfilled need for an actual Christian approach to the subject matter, Paul and Peter Lalonde formed a production company known as Cloud Ten Pictures. Cloud Ten Pictures in the beginning set out to produce Hollywood caliber movies that were Christian in nature, and apparently focused on the Book of Revelation. However, desiring to produce movies on a level with Hollywood and succeeding in doing so are two totally different things. The first attempt made by Cloud Ten Pictures was the pathetic and boring, not to mention stupid, "Apocalypse". This movie was absolutely horrible as I stated in the review for that movie, but it apparently whet some Christian moviegoers' thirst enough to want to see more, so Cloud Ten Pictures obliged by making it into their first franchise.
"Apocalypse 2: Revelation" follows an atheist (Jeff Fahey) who witnessed the rapture of all the Christians, without it really phasing him by the way, and just continues with his life. That is until he comes into contact with some post-rapture Christians who are being hunted by the forces of the Antichrist. When the atheist sees that Christians are being forced to either bow to the Antichrist or lose their head (literally), he chooses to help the Christian `rebels' as they were. In the process he begins to understand God, but will he come to know God before it's too late.
It appears that Cloud Ten Pictures realized how terrible their first film "Apocalypse" was that they chose to essentially remake it with the sequel. "Apocalypse 2: Revelation" is much better than "Apocalypse" in every aspect of filmmaking. The script is better (still corny and wooden), there are better actors (though it appears Jeff Fahey and Carol Alt are on the downswing of their careers otherwise why do this film), and better directing. However, all of these improvements still do not make for an entertaining movie that could hold a candle to even one of the Direct-to-DVD B-movies that Hollywood produces.
As I said it's an improvement, so at least Cloud Ten is trying to head in the right direction, but for a sequel in a franchise, this movie doesn't propel the overall story any further than the first film did. Now I understand that this was pretty much a remake of the original film in the franchise, but I would have expected the story to go a little bit farther into the 7-10 year long Tribulation, instead of stopping where "Apocalypse" did.
I don't really recommend this movie, unless you happen to like "Apocalypse" or are at least wanting to see if they improved at all with the sequel, otherwise this franchise is a slap in the face to moviegoers both Christian and non-Christian and really should be avoided. By avoiding this series, maybe the producers will realize that they should put more time and effort into making better movies and not just trying to flood the starved Christian movie market.
"Apocalypse 2: Revelation" is rated PG-13 for violence.
