Storyline

What if there was a Second Coming and the Son of God arrived on earth? What would he say? What would you do? Are you ready for Judgement Day? Steve Baxter, a video shop worker, is found wandering the Yorkshire Moors after 40 days and nights, mumbling he is the Son of God. Steve isn't mad - he is the Second Coming. He needs to stage a major event to get the world to sit up and take notice, so he performs a miracle at Manchester City football ground. The world's media kicks into a frenzy. Steve has a simple purpose - Mankind must produce a Third Testament or face Judgement Day, in five days time. Fear, cynicism and violence erupt and worldwide pandemonium ensues. But if God is real then so is the Devil. Can the Third Testament be found in time? Can the Son of God save the human race? Written by almost_witty

Great film about religion and Humanism
29 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a humanist Reverend and have some what of an interest in religious studies and I have to say this is a great film. If you are a believer or a non-believer or just don't care this is a thought provoking film about human-kinds relationship with "GOD." Christopher Eccleston is one of my favorite actors and does a great job of portraying the semi-reluctant son of God. One of the highlights of this film is the interaction between Steve, Ecclestons character, and his friends. Some of his friends believe in him and some don't right off the bat. The way people react is probably very realistic, hard to say since this hasn't happened before. The ending is very good and actually surprising since in America it would never have been chosen, the alternate ending would have been chosen instead.
