Entertaining thriller
1 April 2000 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This film is much better than the severest critics give it credit for. It is not great, but if you allow yourself to ignore the Christian Right agenda, it is a rather entertaining tale. Films have a long tradition of exploiting biblical phenomena, and people have been entertained by such stories for years. The Exorcist, The Omen, and Raiders of the Lost Ark come to mind. Even the use of a crucifix to scare off vampires is well established. I think too many people are hung up by the fact that this film was intended to support a specific agenda -- the Fundamentalist interpretation of biblical prophesy. Casper Van Dien shows occasional glimpses of knowing how to act -- a refreshing change from his previous efforts. The rest of the cast does a decent job for this type of film. Taken as a high tech suspense-thriller it is quite a fascinating yarn. To me, those who rate this movie below "4" or above "8" are simply not being objective. It probably should be an average of 6.
