Louis Gossett Jr.,
In the not-too-distant future, a brutal dictator rules over the planet. Using high-tech surveillance from satellites through a sophisticated chip implant, the Community Police Force infiltrates every facet of human existence.
David A.R. White,
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....

Early in the movie, we see that Jack cannot hear at all out of his left ear, and wears a hearing aid in his right ear. When the group gets to the observatory, Jack checks to see if the phone line works by holding the handset up to his deaf ear. See more »
Decent cast marooned in a miserable script that delivers an inconsistent and often incomprehensible message. The characters are unbelievable and sometimes unnecessary - what purpose is served by the psychokinetic except to supply some gratuitous bloodshed and dime-store special effects? The story itself falls under the heading of an "idiot plot" because only idiots would behave the way these characters do when faced with these situations. And that includes the (unseen) Devil, who seems to need electricity in order to deliver his message.
I saw the film on cable with no preconceived notions and no knowledge that this is the "Christian Film" genre.
Unintentionally funny at times. A 6.66 second message? Please don't bludgeon the viewer with the Book of Revelation.
Technically incongruous. Phones don't work, radios don't work, but the Internet connection to the Pentagon does work.
If you want to like it because it has a religious theme, you'll like it. If you're looking for cinema, look elsewhere.
