Storyline

Dating back to the time of Jesus Christ, an ancient relic known as the Loculus has been fought over by the forces of light and darkness down the centuries. Created in 50 A.D., the wood panels of the Loculus are emblazoned with two images: the Ankh symbol - a looped crucifix, and the Caduceus - a rod entwined with two serpents. On its perilous journey through history, the Loculus was further adorned with more arcane mystical imagery including pentagrams, hexagrams, a crucified serpent, the naked human form divine, and a hermaphrodite, and many have tried to unlock the secret of the sacred artefact, a secret only a chosen few know contains profound and overwhelming ramifications for mankind. In 1299, a Jewish alchemist's attempts to unravel the enigma ended in disaster. In 1710, Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of the laws of gravity and a foremost member of the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar, also strove to answer the riddle.

Too many unresolved issues
10 November 2003 | by dancecorpSee all my reviews

Revelation had a wonderful air of intrigue, but left to much lacking in the process. In short it was choppy at best. If you did not pay attention during every minute of the film you would be lost the next minute. The movie as a whole was well played out, but lacking in the information department. There are even some moments where if you do not have a full understanding of the crucifixtion of Christ and the Templar knights you have no idea what anyone is talking about. The movie just ends as well, leaving an opening for sequels but will these sequels ever come to pass.??? My only major complaints are the widescreen aspect ratio on the DVD (extremely narrow) and also we needed a better explination on the grand master... he is just a evil guy sure, but without prior bible school classes you have little chance knowing he is more than likely poncius pilot's (forgive my spelling) commander of the guards who according to some biblical beliefs was sentenced by god to walk the earth till the end of time after stricking Jesus and being the man in charge of the crucifixtion. I would give it 2 1/2 stars out of 4
