Storyline

In Haiti, the sea and the life-form die; in the Middle East, a town is frozen. These are signs of the Apocalypse and the Vatican is investigating, but Father Lucci advises that these omens are hoax or technologically explained. In California, the housewife Abby Quinn is pregnant and the delivery is scheduled to February, 29 in a leap year. Her husband, the lawyer Russell Quinn, is defending a weird case of the teenager Jimmy Szaragosa that killed his parents telling that he was following the Word of God. Meanwhile Abby rents a garage apartment to the mysterious David Bannon. The hopeless Abby has strange nightmares and soon she finds that around the world there are signs of the Apocalypse in accordance with the Book of Revelation. She learns also that David Bannon is Jesus that has returned; Father Lucci is the Pilate's porter Cartaphilus that was doomed to wander on Earth for the eternity; and she is a woman that tried to help Jesus. Further, she is the Seventh Sign and the ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Good acting and a refreshingly un-tested ending
5 July 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Unlike many others, I thoroughly enjoy this movie, it has many inconsistencies and it is no fair representation of The Book of Revelations or Christian mythology. However, the acting is good on most parts and the story in itself is thrilling. The best part is the end, though! My guess is that the producers did not use a test audience or they would have chosen a much sweeter and uninteresting ending.
