I watched the first in this series, "Revelation Road: The Beginning of the End" a while back and absolutely loved it. Pure Flix Entertainment is really bringing some great faith-based films to the table. After seeing the first, I could not wait for the next...but I had to. I waited until I could purchase the film because I didn't want to just stream it as I had the first.
"Revelation Road 2: Sea of Glass & Fire" picks up where the first left off, and fulfills two purposes one is to give the viewer some more background on Josh with answering the question of why is he the way he is and is he aware of it? We also get a little recap on exactly went down in the first movie and get more of an understanding on the relationship issues between the biker gang's leader Hawg and on Cat who seems so tortured through both films. The viewer also sees how God has had a hand on their lives in a unique way for a unique purpose and even the negative parts can be used in a positive light.
Generally I'd say Revelation Road 2 has a smooth running plot that gives us some steps forward with some long glances back. As with other films like this, there are people who are reeling after an obvious rapture scenario with most not understanding what went on and still others who do get it and know full well that somehow they truly weren't the believers they thought themselves to be. This always gives me food for thought. The actors and actresses did a great job. You will often find people who are a bit more canned, but not in this film. The cast definitely took the time to really grow into character which for myself was greatly appreciated especially because I am one who is often disappointed when I see a Christian film come out with a wonderful message but the message is relayed by actors who are wooden, and everyone I try to share it with just shakes their head. This is a film of quality with many wonderful moments. I look forward to the next film in this series.
My husband and I enjoyed this movie a great deal. There were those on the edge of the seat moments, and there were those eyes filled with tears moments. This just proves that a movie can be done very well without adding nudity or foul language.
I love these kind of movies, because they take you to a level in your mind & heart to ask the question "what if...." This kind of movie is an excellent witnessing tool for The Lord. It"s a down to earth way to reach those who would never enter a church. Besides, it is filled with action & adventure and that is what I like in my movies!
