Reviews - What do customers think about Tribulation - DVD?
I almost missed it Mar 22, 2007
I have had this movie for about 6 years, and just watched it the other day. I almost missed it and it was such a good movie. I didn't see anything contrary to the Bible and it held my interest throughout the whole movie. I don't see how anyone could give this less than 4 stars unless they are just expecting something really "mainstream media". I found it to be pretty accurate and entertaining.
"Sleeping Beauty" misses the rapture ... Jan 1, 2007
Moving performances by Busey & Mandel (& especially Busey -- he made it seem real). Continues the sci-fi/virtual reality angle that was set up in the previous installment ("Revelation") with a much heavier emphasis on horror/supernatural warfare (which the inexperienced will probably find offensive).
I actually enjoyed this one -- although some of the situations didn't ring true for me (eg. the Antichrist's reaction to the last Hater "uplink") & the post-rapture world seemed a little too out-dated & hokey (who uses payphones any more?!) ...
But it's always interesting to me to see how Helen Hannah (played by Leigh Lewis) gets "woven" in & out of the storyline time & time again, even though she's not the star ... Her character is a little on the one-dimensional side (SOOOOPER-SAINT!), but likeable nonetheless.
Sony panders to fundie crowd, releases ponderous schlock Nov 30, 2006
I can't believe Sony would have anything to do with this dreck. Yes I watched the entire movie, and it felt like it was four hours long. I don't know where to start, in describing this film's lameness. I kept hoping for some unintentional laughs, but they were only to be found in the occasional action scene in which Gary Busey had to move his enormous gut from one side of the set to the other. Howie Mandel manages to remember all his lines and avoid touching any of the other characters, so his germ-phobia was probably not too much of a factor, but he has little or no screen presence in his role. Margot Kidder manages to say all her lines without her dentures falling out, but the lines she is given to say are pretty stale. Nick Mancuso is a standout here, simply because he looks cool and has a strong screen presence, but it is not enough to save the movie. One gets the feeling that the Biblical message (or rather Bible-believer agenda) came first, and the screenplay was cobbled together to try to convey it. This is always a recipe for a ponderous film experience, unless the film is The Ten Commandments, or the story of Jesus' life or something directly from the Bible. Oh, and by the way, this movie was funded by fundies.. televangelists in fact. So even if you are not the type who would give donations directly to some shady TV preacher, by buying this DVD, you are putting some of the money into their pockets. So since the movie is dull and amateurishly put together, just skip it altogether.
I like this movie, because..... Oct 6, 2006
I like this movie, because, even tho it's a little cheesey, and not scary at all, I just felt kinda endeared to Gary and Margot & Howie- I think they did a great job of stirring my emotions. I think Margot Kidder is quite a trooper; she's been thru a lot since her Superman the Movie days, and every bit of it shows on her face. I really think she's a good person, and I would like to meet her someday if I ever get the opportunity.(yea, right, like that'll happen!) The one thing that cracks me up about this flick, tho, is even after waking up after at least a year long coma, Gary's character has got very long shaggy hair, and matching beard, but he didn't lose one ounce of that excessive belly fat! Hilarious! I still love this movie, tho.
really, really hokey stuff in this film Jul 29, 2006
I thought the cast did a respectable job with what they had to work with. The real star of the film was Nick Mancuso as Franco Macalousso. Mancuso made a believable antichrist.
However, this film had one very hokey part which brought the quality of the film down a lot. So the "image of the beast" is a virtual reality helmet. What in the blue hell were the script writers smoking when they dreamt that up, even when they dreamt it up in the movie's prequel, "Revelations"? How does a VR helmet burn a 666 on somebody's hand? How does a VR helmet cause a snakebite to appear on somebody in the real world? The whole VR helmet thing was really ill-conceived...okay, the VR helmet thing was STUPID.
