Storyline

America's 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world's future is foretold in Biblical prophecy - from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. This astonishing documentary explores their world - in their homes, at conferences, and on a wide-ranging tour of Israel. By interweaving Christian, Zionist, Jewish and critical perspectives along with telling archival materials, the filmmakers probe the politically powerful - and potentially explosive - alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel...an alliance that may set the stage for what one prominent Evangelical leader calls "World War III." Written by FRF

deadly dull
13 October 2012 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

Oddly, you can't tell if the director approves of his subjects and their wacko ideas. It is very rare to find anything so neutral on the subject of religion.

This movie is a bit like listening to a group of children play make believe. It turns the camera on various lower than average IQ Americans and lets them ramble on about what they think about Jesus, the coming end of the world and world events, and just lets it run. There are no experts or professionals. There is no discussion of the validity of the various claims.

You get to see holy land tourists dawning white robes and dunking themselves in a small dirty stream which turned out to be all that is left of the storied Jordan River. You get to ride on a tour bus in Israel and hear the patter. The subjects chatter to each other about their fantasies, looking for reassurance in the eyes of fellows, rather than in anything objective.

The main problem with the movie is it like watching security footage. There is almost no editing or cohesion. It needs a drastic pruning.

There are a few shocking moments, like when the pilgrims fantasise about blowing up the Dome of the Rock, the second holiest shrine of Islam, and claiming it had no right to be there even though it has been since 691 AD. There is also some gratuitous Islam bashing. They thought highly wicked that Islam wished to convert everyone on earth, as if they did not want the same thing for Christianity.

There are some clips of various US presidents making some highly sectarian comments, which raised my eyebrows. I thought presidents avoided cheerleading for specific fundamentalist claptrap.

These are Rotarians. They are deadly dull, and not very well informed about their own cults.
