Megiddo is a supernatural ride into a world teetering on the edge of the Apocalypse. It follows the rise of a Machiavellian leader bent on amassing the armies of the world for the battle of Armageddon while calamities of Biblical proportions pummel the Earth. Though both prequel and sequel to The Omega Code, Megiddo works also as a stand alone story for anyone who missed its predecessor. For at its emotional core, Megiddo is the Caine and Abel story of the two men enamoured with the same woman, raised as brothers, who grew up to find themselves pitted against each other over the fate and souls of the entire world.Written by

The beginning of the movie takes place in 1960, Stone is six years old and David is about three months old. Ten years later, Stone is suddenly 21 and David is 16 (according to the credits). In reality, Stone should be 16 and David should be 10. Unless Stone aged an extra five years and David aged an extra six, which is unlikely, their ages do not match up. See more »
My wife suggested we see "Megiddo," and I'm glad she did. It's refreshingly different and indeed entertaining to watch a film lacking the ubiquitous dark-green haze of linguistic pollution or the hackneyed writer's block cure-all: nudity.
Entertaining though it was, "Megiddo" represents interpretations of the endtimes described in the biblical Book of Revelations or Apocalypse that are current among many of us. Might there be other interpretations that a film should consider as well that go beyond the strictly literal? Perhaps that is too much to ask of one film, given the circumstances of its production.
Humanity's struggle between good and evil was a thematic constant in this film, as in Judaism's Yom Kippur, Christianity's atonement, Islam's only now barely understood jihad (the struggle over the sinful self to be one with God's will). For all its literal stance, the film is poignantly significant given the recent horror (that humankind is wont to visit upon its own) in New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, and in other stricken areas world-wide.
See "Megiddo" (and read the book, or read the book first) and judge for yourself. Are the endtimes the stuff of spectacular special effects (some quite profoundly moving as was God's parting of the Red Sea in "The Ten Commandments"), or is the Holy Bible's text possessed of far more subtlety and significance than we think or films display?
