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....

All this movie does is to preach a conservative religious viewpoint
21 September 2009 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie makes very little pretense about its purpose. It presents one dimensional characters in a situation where the characters wonder and bluster about different religious viewpoints. There is only one correct viewpoint, namely conservative evangelical.

While the technical aspects of the movie seem to be above average, the writing is definitely not. The writing is predictable and dull which makes the acting even worse. The transitions in the story are jumpy. The devices used to create tension are much too obvious. One example should suffice. When the group is trying to decipher the mysterious signal, they find the signal pulses for 6.66 seconds. Obviously, this is supposed to point to the Satanic origin of the signal.

In short, Deceived seems to be a cross between a sci-fi movie and an evangelistic meeting...and it fails as both.
