One of my favorite end time movies!
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason this movie is so good is the storyline stays devoted to the heart issues going on in the characters who are very believable ordinary types. No one has super scientific genius who happens to appear to save the day... So many end times movies get really caught up in chronology of Revelations too. This doesn't. It really focuses on a small band of people grappling with their fate of being left behind and making sense of the craziness of circumstance and character changes happening all around them. I give it my highest rating for end time projects and show it to friends on VHS all the time. Also 3 of the main actors are professional, credible performers.
