Set just before the start of the Armageddon, the series follows two central characters, a physicist and a nun in a race against time to see if the end of the world can be averted. Bill Pullman plays the role of Dr. Richard Massey, a Harvard physics professor and father mourning the death of his daughter, who was murdered by an evil satanist with seemingly supernatural abilities. Natascha McElhone stars as a nun who appeals to Massey to help her investigate whether the apocalyptic prophecy from the Book of Revelations is starting to come true.Written by

Protagonists rely on full moon setting at midnight on the Sea of Galilee to determine location of birth of the anti-Christ. Full moons are always at zenith - directly overhead - at midnight local time. Only half-moons (waxing half moons at that) set at midnight local time. See more »
Can I ask you something? Why did you become a nun? A young woman, attractive, her whole life ahead of her. Giving up having babies, knowing men, going to parties. Never a temptation? Never a regret?
Sister Josepha Montefiore:
Regret, never. But, um, temptation, always. This is the essence of consciousness. Consciousness being awareness of choice, choice between good and evil, which is the essence of temptation.
Boy, you know how to discourage idle chatter.

Weak in Every Way
i thought this movie was really stupid and the acting to be really bad. It just seems like some quickly put together trash, trying to tie in religion in such a brainless way. What is John Ryes Davies , a great actor doing in this garbage? as Far as bill Pullman, well he lost it years ago. i feel like the television companies take us for fools, like why cant we have a well thought out, well constructed, good acting etc. It is like so much money goes into making such a trivial mini series when there are so many more interesting topics, or even ways of dealing with the films religious themes. Boo to the makers of this so called movie. Lazy.
