Awesome Film
30 August 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This movie changed my life. I have always just thought of the apocalypse as folklore or fairytale; however, this movie really made me think about what it all means. The whole content of the movie changed my viewpoint of religion and life in general. It has an amazing soundtrack. Just thinking about it sends chills down my spine. I recommend this film to everyone, you must see this film!
