Ancient codes hidden within the Torah reveals the secrets of global events, past (i.e. Hitler, the Kennedy assasination, the Gulf War), present, and future. One man (York) is after the Code, seeking the power to change the world as we know it...for the worse. Another (Van Dien) seeks the truth, risking his life and everything he stands for in order to stop him. Written by
One of the most interesting aspects of this film is how divided people feel about it. Most people either love it or hate it. There is little in between. I fall into the group that loved it. Yes, it's true, Casper Van Dien is a little inconsistent. When he's good, he is very good, but sometimes he is less than adequate. (He is more often good.) Catherine Oxenberg is believable in a fairly standard role. Michael Ironside gives a very nice performance in a difficult role; difficult because his role, Dominic, was not well conceived, but he overcomes this problem beautifully. The casting of Michael York was inspired. His excellent performance as Stone Alexander is very suave, very powerful, very weird. I must also mention Jan Tríska and Gregory Wagrowski as the prophets. Their performances are very subtle and most convincing. Overall, well written, the script and story were well executed. I did have a problem with a couple of unnecessary scenes. There were several lines of dialog that were not believably written, but for the most part the script was sound. One piece of advice - go see this movie with an open mind. This isn't a perfect movie, and if you accept that, you should enjoy it immensely.
