Unbelievable film. recommend to everyone!
12 August 2002 | by HaPeEwSee all my reviews

this was quite a movie. I was glued to my television from start to finish. I don't think my eyes left the set. I have always been a George Kennedy fan and this film confirmed that love. The director was at the top of his game, and the script was flawless, it never slows. It is a rollercoaster of conspiracy and intrigue that even those that do not belive that there will one day be an apocalypse will walk away wondering. "Are we alone?", "Is there alien intteligence?", " is the bible right in its predictions?" all these questions and more will be answered once you've seen this film. I recommend this film to everyone and urge you to go rent it today, you won't be disappointed!
