I advice you to skip this one, but If there's some strange reason you
HAVE to see this, I'll detail only the first 10 minutes and give a
distant overview of the rest..
I was surprised by the bad acting and the unlikely events in the first minutes. A cop on a rescue mission is cruising at 4 miles an hour while looking at his mobile phone and enjoying a totally relaxed conversation with his buddy. A few moments later, he's getting jumped upon from a trailer and kicked around bad enough that he'll be seriously bruised for days. Oh, he also gets shot in the chest, but the mobile phone absorbs (deflects?) the bullet. Come on.. REALLY ?? Guess what's next: he one shots the bad guy with one hand, while being on the ground, beaten up, shot at, with his partner standing closer to the aggressor, on his feet, unhurt, holding a gun with two hands pointed at that guy's head for ages..
Nothing happens for a while, except a really flat script poorly played. Almost gave up on this "cinematic experience" when the unexpected happens: a loop in time ! I think to my self: "finally ! something with potential" 1-2 loops later the whole idea is obvious as daylight and two more loops later the "movie" ends totally predictable.
I would have give this an objective 5/10 but since it presents itself as an intriguing thriller with sci-fi accents rather then a really poor indoctrination attempt that it is, I have to rate it no higher then 1..
There is only one way this "movie" can "work": brain wash someone, show him the movie, rinse and repeat: day.. dafter day.. after day..
If you're not looking for God, there's absolutely no reason to see this; and if you are: I can assure you there are 1000 better places you can search !
So if that is going to bother you, than just see something else. For
the rest of you still here its a pretty good movie. It even had me
thinking the next day. Yes, I am thinking person. Did you know there
are smart people that believe in Jesus and God? I guess a most
reviewers would like you to think otherwise.
Anyways, I just started seeing these Christian David A. R. White movies and they are quite refreshing, they may have some bits that are little heavy handed, but for the most part its a solid movie. And for those that believe or don't have a prejudice against believer movies you will enjoy yourself. I even got teary eyed a couple of times and was on the edge of my seat at the end (I don't want to give it away).
Husband and wife David A.R. White and Logan White star in this
Christian based film which was inspired by Groundhog Day. Like Bill
Murray, David A.R. White is trapped in a time warp in which Logan, and
friends Lonnie Colon and Anise Fuller keep disappearing. Like Bill
Murray it takes him a few times to finally see the meaning of what has
White and Colon are cops on a working vacation on a yacht in the Mexican waters of the Pacific. They've just rescued pop singer Jessica Hope from a kidnapper, but her manager seems not quite right to either White or their captain Eric Roberts. When the manager invites them on the yacht as a token of gratitude, both look at it as a chance for some undercover work.
But apparently God is working his own plan and the three of them, Colon, Fuller, and Logan White disappear in a flash of light. They're also quite isolated from civilization, but the radio gives indications of some kind of catastrophe.
It keeps happening again and again for White like this is all being rerun for his benefit. I'm sure his wife was a fine woman, but I didn't see anything that would indicate she had that kind of juice with God.
In The Blink Of An Eye is one of those films that if you are a tried and true believer the flaws in film making and theology just won't matter. Others are inclined to be a bit more skeptical.
To all of you shocked viewers. I watched this on Netflix and it says right on the genre of the movie at the bottom that it is a Religious, spiritual movie. That is just one point but also that any movie that is by Pure Flix is also a Spiritual movie. Sorry to You non believers but there is no reason that a faith based movie shouldn't be allowed in the mainstream seeing how This country is a free country and though it was found on the basis of God and our money does state " In god we trust." I think the fact that we have freedom to believe what we want is great. So stop trying to justify your non belief and if you do not like our "cold callings" well don't watch it, and next time maybe research a movies genre before watching it if you are that strongly against things. I love movies that are faith based, and I also love the Lord he gives life meaning and he died for our sins and this movie shows examples of his grace. No one can push beliefs on you, you watched the movie, you can hit stop. Its your choice.
It's one of the most wonderful movie I have seen as we know that Bible
says, these are the last days and Jesus is coming soon... This movie
alerts and prepares the people for coming of the Lord. It was a
thriller which makes us to watch as what's next... The story line is
very interesting and meeting the theme for which it's taken. The dialog
"David... David..." still echos in my ears. Thinks every time
everything is over, but it starts over all again.
Overall it's an low budget movie, with wonderful message.
GOD bless Michael Sinclair and his team for making the world ready for rapture...

I have to say that this type of movie should have a GENRE attached to
it for Religious content! I was expecting an action packed, suspenseful
story line. Within the first 15 minutes you get the RED FLAG that
outlines the entire movie.
If you truly don't care for this content then turn it off...turn it off NOW!!! It's got a touch of Groundhog Day but it's full of BAD Acting.
I've wasted 86 minutes that could have been better spent on a worthwhile movie.
If you are looking for a movie to save you....this might be it.
If you are looking for a message to save you...this might be it
If you are looking for a movie to put you to sleep... this movie is for you!
Well not exactly fine-print, but tucked away clues in the genre above
that let you know more about what kind of ride you're in for with this
one. Click on SEE MORE to find out this is no run of the mill
Fantasy/Thriller. Pay particular attention to the keywords "Religious
Conversion", "Christianity", "Christian Film" and "Prayer" and if this
still sounds like it'll float your boat (so to speak) then prepare to
be entertained/saved/redeemed etc etc.
Otherwise don't waste your time hoping like I did for some kind of engrossing 'Groundhog Day meets Triangle' thriller. It falls far short and in the end left me quite angry at what I'd been covertly subjected to.
I like comments like MickeyFin's where they watch what they obviously believe is fiction, and then they review it as if it were a non-fiction piece. The only thing this could indicate is that their soul is crying out for the concept to be true, but everything else in their being denies it at all cost. It is the equivalent of me watching Spider-Man and then shouting outrage that there is no actual superhero that can crawl on ceilings, and voicing my disgust that some filmmaker subjected me to such a presentation. As far as the question: "Why is there suffering in the world?" The answer has nothing to do with your problems with this movie, but the answer is nevertheless critical for any intellectual and non-intellectual to contemplate. The answer is easy to understand, but only once your mind has evolved past Neanderthal. One of many non-preaching presentations can be found here (found via a quick google search) where some ideas to answer your question are given. http://powertochange.com/discover/faith/worldsuffering/ and I'll add further, if there was no suffering, how would we know what joy was? Certainly, you don't expect everyone to be happy all of the time, do you? If anything, YOU are preaching THAT to all of US. Frankly, I don't care for your anonymous cold call. If you still think that link was too preachy, here is a very clinical discussion about the absolute necessity of suffering that might prove much more palatable. http://www.vmohanty.com/2010/why-is-there-suffering-in-the-world/ Either way, using the existence of suffering as an excuse to deny there's a God is as ludicrous as me using the existence of crime to deny there's no Spider-Man. You may have to read that more than once to fully appreciate the intellectual profundity.
This is a serious form of the movie "Groundhog Day" that everyone knows Bill Murray is in. This is more serious in the way it tells how the rapture will be by using this cop who has to live the same day over over again as his wife and his partner along with his wife disappear because of knowing God. As I have read many reviews and some of the reviews were very harsh on this movies depiction of the rapture. I believe that the ones who watched the movie and had given it bad reviews are wrong as I think it is a very good movie to have someone watch to bring them to Christ as the movie does point out key Bible verses and passages to keep in mind for a new Christian, Amen.
For all who know the story there can be no spoilers. I don't write
reviews but a few and far between, but I could not let that last review
stand without saying something. How few movies are made about Christ
and God's plan and out of those few are backed by a Hollywood budget.
So speaking for myself I am thankful for all of the Christian films
made that is not filled with nudity and swearing so bad i feel sick
just being in the room where it is being played. The actors in this
movie including Eric Roberts have been in other Christian movies of
similar story lines like The Moment After (I & II), Six, and others.
If you want to watch a movie that has a plot about the coming of Christ, here is another one I will add to my collection. I hope they continue to make more. If this movie makes you angry enough to write a bad review maybe there is another reason you are upset, like it might have hit close to home, knocked on a door you are avoiding opening. Open that door you won't be disappointed.
