In a remote space observatory perched high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a needle frantically scratches erratic lines on a strip chart recorder confirming an extraterrestrial signal. Emmett Shaw, the powerful, charismatic billionaire who owns the observatory, rushes to the station, hungry to expose the discovery. This is the biggest moment in human history, and he is the man responsible for it all. With the goal of immediately sharing the signal with the entire world, he brings along two leading journalists, Kara Walsh, an extremely attractive, top-notch investigative reporter who begrudgingly owes her career to Shaw, and Reverend Fletcher, a new age visionary with the hottest radio show in the country. Also accompanying Shaw is Jack Jones, a scruffy but brilliant computer technician whose pessimistic and often sarcastic attitude ruffles many feathers in the group, especially Smitty's, the program director, who happens to be Jack's ex-girlfriend, and the only Christian in the group....Written by
I'll be honest, when I picked up "Deceived", I was less than looking forward to viewing it. Given Cloud Ten's horrible and unbearable movie record, it's still a mystery why I picked it up. But since I was out of movies to watch for the night, I popped it in.
This has to be Cloud Ten's best movie to date. After seeing all of the others (Revelation, Tribulation, Judgment, Left Behind, ect.) I was surprised to find out that Cloud Ten is learning the meaning of the word, "Quality". The script wasn't that bad at all; it was not overly preachy. There were some awkward dialogue, but it was a LOT less than all the other movies. As far as casting goes, again lot's of improvement from previous films. I think that casting Judd Nelson was a good decision as well as that of Gossit. It was well photographed, the sound mix was decent and the score actually fit.
Overall, I'd give it a 7 out of 10. It's not totally perfect (Title Sequence) , but it's getting there. Regardless of what others might think, "Deceived", has quality behind it that ALL the other Cloud Ten movies could only long for. If Cloud Ten continues on this path, they may just win me back.
