Romanian documents shown are written in Cyrillic letters, but the Romanians use the Latin alphabet. Romanian was, however, written in Cyrillic until the government moved the language over to the Latin alphabet. See more »
Why do people always use a forum like this to vent their frustrations over religion, politics, science, history, etc.? COMMENT ON THE MOVIE!!! Okay, I'm done preaching.
I like what I've seen of Revelations, so far, having seen 2 episodes. Bill Pullman and Natasha McElhone are believable in their respective roles, and the story-line is interesting and suspenseful. While the Biblical accuracy may be lacking, that's not the point of a movie like this. This is a DRAMA, loosely based on a Biblical theme. Don't like it? - Change the channel. It's not like you paid 8 bucks plus parking to get in. For the most part, atheists and other religions will hate it for being too Christian, Protestants will hate it for being too Catholic, and Catholics will hate it for being too non-Biblical. Hey, folks, it's just a movie!!!
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the mini-series, but don't think I'll read anymore comments. Too many people commenting on God, the Big Bang, etc. Would you guys get a life?
