Storyline

A soldier awakens on a gray, deserted plane. He rises, stretches - is that a drop of blood we see on the ground? He removes his helmet. A large television set sweeps into view. He walks to it, pushes a video tape into the slot, and the tape begins to play. "Welcome to Heaven, you are dead." The soldier hastens away; another television set rolls in front of him. The soldier draws his gun. Can he put an end to death? Or do other states await him? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cute in a snuff flick kind of way.
25 March 2002 | by (Maryland, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Although the content may seem a little harsh to some viewers I found it to be quite amusing. The concept of your final reward being the same regardless of your actions on earth (or in that very after life) strikes me as a creepy kind of practical joke by the cosmos. Perhaps he was an evil person in life and was in hell from the very beginning. This is simply the fates way of adding insult to injury (or irony to eternity in this case.) I can think of nothing worse than an eternity of nothingness and confusion (except of course for having to sit through an eternity of academy awards shows.)
