Storyline

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 Anonymous

Goofs

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 »

User Reviews

I'm an atheist and even I was entertained.

I know my fellow atheists are going to call me a traitor for this, but just because I don't believe a word of it, dosen't mean I can't be amused by End-time films.

Clique, but far more entertaining than "Baal", the Omen movies, and Left Behind, and far less preachy then "The Stand". I was expecting the worse and I ended up surprised.

I was rooting for Alex Stone the whole time. But what have been far more interesting is if the Devil was made to be a sympathic character like in Paradise Lost. I mean, he's obviously read the Bible and knows he's going to lose, why is he following God's game plan?

Only problem is: Michel York is Jesus? Whatever.

End of the movie, Satan should have looked far different and maybe even grown to Godzilla-size and crush tanks while breathing fire and summoning seven-headed dragons.

In the end, as in the book, God is at last revealed to be a coward and a hyprocite; killing everyone who dosen't worship Him and making His enemies bow to Him. Considering the amount of attrocites in the Old Testement, He makes the Antichrist look almost saintly in comparason.
