Storyline

In a remote space observatory perched high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a needle frantically scratches erratic lines on a strip chart recorder confirming an extraterrestrial signal. Emmett Shaw, the powerful, charismatic billionaire who owns the observatory, rushes to the station, hungry to expose the discovery. This is the biggest moment in human history and he is the man responsible for it all. With the goal of immediately sharing the signal with the entire world, he brings along two leading journalists - Kara Walsh, an extremely attractive, top-notch investigative reporter who begrudgingly owes her career to Shaw, and Reverend Fletcher, a new age visionary with the hottest radio show in the country. Also accompanying Shaw is Jack Jones, a scruffy but brilliant computer technician whose pessimistic and often sarcastic attitude ruffles many feathers in the group - especially Smitty's, the program director, who happens to be Jack's ex-girlfriend and the only Christian in the group....

Intriguing, suspenseful, and entertaining, Deceived is fun!
19 January 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was excited to watch the newest release from the fastest growing Christian production company, Cloud Ten Pictures. Having already set the standard in Christian films with hit's like Revelation, Tribulation, Judgment, and Left Behind, I prepared myself for another surprise hit. I was not disappointed as this intriguing supernatural tale of good vs. evil unfolded like a Steven King classic.

Paul Lalonde and John Patus wrote a brilliant screenplay that clearly unmasks the enemy that surrounds those who are searching for eternal answers in modern day science.

This story is played out by a superb cast who add depth and life to their characters. The characters are one of the most important elements to the success of this film. Unlike most science fiction films that depend on special effects and blown up budgets, Decieved succeeds with strong character interaction and transformations that make up the mystery and suspense. This is a character-driven story that relies more on the talents of its players than it's budget.

Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St.Elmo's Fire) plays Jack Jones, a tech expert who is called upon to assist in sharing the un-identified signal with the world. Jack is faced with his greatest challenge in piecing together the mystery surrounding the signal and it's strange effects on everyone who listens to it.

Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman) masters the role of Colonel David Garrett, the man behind the top-secret government project who discovers more than he bargained for after becoming trapped with the crazed team.

It's refreshing to see Christian projects being produced that aren't ashamed to proclaim the gospel. Deceived not only entertains with mystery and suspense, but it presents the clear gospel message of hope and salvation without being too preachy. Cloud Ten continues to step forward with each project that pushes the limits and sets new standards. Intriguing, suspenseful, and entertaining, Deceived is fun!
