19 December 2001 | by (newton, kansas) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen this movie I recommend not seeing it. While the overall message is good and a spiritual connection is made, other factors make it a horrible film overall. The acting is bad - it is obvious that the cast had no experience at all, in dialouge and in body language. It was painfully obvious to me that nobody had a clue as to what they were doing. I've seen a lot better material than presented in this film. I also have a bone to pick with the storyline itself - the visions experienced were not put together all that well. Biblically speaking, it is pure fantasy and little truth. It wasn't really explained all that well either. I would have put the tribulation scenes in a seperate place in the film rather than mixed within the movie. To me it spoiled the entire plot. After all, we don't know the future. The suspense build-up is decent, but not great nor scary like it should be. If you want to watch a good film dealing with the end times, I recommend Mark IV's "A Thief in the Night" plus all the rest in the series. "The Gathering" just does not cut it. Measly acting ruins the entire message the film is supposed to present.
