Did You Know?


Arnold Schwarzenegger's first film since Batman & Robin (1997). The reason for the gap was because of his heart surgery after playing Mr Freeze; the studios were anxious about whether or not they could insure him, and despite attempts to convince them he was in perfect health, he couldn't get any work until End of Days (1999). Even then, he was amazed when insurance people and executives from Universal came to the set just to watch him, to see if he was still up to the action scenes. They asked Schwarzenegger if he enjoyed this kind of punishment, but he said he was used to it. After the first week of shooting, the insurance guys backed off and not long after, the film offers started rolling in again. See more »


Father Kovak writes down '666' on a sheet of paper to illustrate how it is '999' when upturned. In the next shot it is quite clearly a different piece of paper with a different '666' on it. See more »

What God Wins? The Movie Must Go!
9 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

Yes Arnie is a dreadful actor that is why I took 2 off right off the bat. Also a little of Kevin Pollack goes a very long way. Hyams is a gifted director OUTLAND answers any questions of whether he is up for suspense or not. First let's talk about the real reason it is hated. All the other devil flicks God loses or is on vacation apparently.THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE THE OMEN THE EXORCIST NEEDFUL THINGS God loses in all these films prayers fail; the devil is all powerful. Without delving into theology suffice to say boys and girls if you are going into metaphysics stealing deities it would be nice if you knew who was who and their respective histories. HELLO READ THE BIBLE Satan LOSES. These fat new age decadents are so hilarious they want to steal the devil because they have the same moral system NONE. Yet they go together dear you cannot have Satan without God. Usually God is on vacation the Devil runs rampant prayers are useless.

What someone made a film where God defeats the Devil? A man prays God shows him Michael's sword the weapon he sent Satan into hell with and the man is saved sees his child and wife before he dies? OUT WITH IT! In another time another zeitgeist this film would have been canonized. If Cecil B DeMille lived today THE TEN COMMANDMENTS would never have been made. He would be unemployed or making the vile trash like SIN CITY if he wished to eat and pay his bills. I love the earlier reviews cloaking the underlying real reason; it is suspenseful, has many pop out scares the effects are still impressive. The devil is presented as the lying double dealing murderous misanthropic monster he is. I love when he holds arnie over the street,"you see those insignificant dots down there that is what you are to me.'' No he is not bringing the light or thinking happy thoughts.

The ending models nobility and true love giving of yourself even to death. Yes Sin City is a much better film for the kiddies. The moral system is why they hate Christianity so much by the way. I am a theistic existentialist yet it annoys even me. They must have their films ethics free like where superman wipes out Metropolis but saves Lois and a token family in Man Of Steel. The same in Star Crap: Descent Into Moral Darkness. The man kills 60 people but saves his precious baby; seeing a pattern here? Yes, atavistic narcissism that cares only for itself others lives mean nothing. Yes the acting is sub par; have you seen Man of Steel? It is better than Henry Cavill. I recommend this film strongly yes it has the usual few Catholic scenes of their visionaries, I know, just go get some popcorn come back. Rod Steiger gives an excellent performance; Byrne portrays the Devil well and theologically correctly. Cold and full of hate for God and hello Man also. He is not your friend.

Any film where God wins, faith is rewarded, nobility is modeled and love shown for what it truly is New Age denuded; SACRIFICE. Parents the film is quite violent with a graphic sex scene not for kids. The cable censored version would be a better choice. Also the language. I love the non PC scene where Satan says to the pedophile cop,"the scent of all those boys is on you remember who you serve." Enough said, you get my point guess the real reason the film is calumniated to death. Not a mystery
