I like a good movie and one that tells a story about what is important to me. I teach a study on Revelation at my church and so the idea of this movie struck a chord. I thought it might be more about Revelation. Instead it is a story that will continue and the characters did not keep my attention. If you like a mystery then you should like this. If you are thinking this is more about the end times and the mark of the beast and what will happen it is someone's rendition and just not biblical in my estimation. I know some will like it but it was not my favorite movie I have purchased on this topic.
This movie starts out like several other end times movies I have seen, but, they put their own twists in, and, I enjoyed it a lot. I gave it 4 stars because there is one shot which really looked fake and poorly done.
Overall, I think it is well worth watching and I will recommend it to friends and family.
Action packed edge of your seat LAST DAYS thriller

I love movies with true messages and this one fits the bill. It even captures THE RAPTURE with total action! It takes place right at the end of the Age of Grace with the technology to bring the Great Tribulation to life...how cool is that as a witness to the REALITY OF CHRIST"S RETURN! This is a great tool to reach those who really love Action & Adventure in their movie watching.
One night when hosting my Christian movie night, the movie Escape was voted upon; great movie by the way. While we were checking out the previews before the movie, a preview for this movie: The Mark began playing. When my moviegoers and I saw this preview we were all like "Whoa!", and some of them even asked me to check this out and see if it was worth nominating for a future movie night. Of course besides them asking me about it, I wanted to check out The Mark because I felt the plot was very promising and I was also just thinking of the whole microchipping thing...
The Mark concerns paid mercenary: Chad Turner who has been hired to protect some medical workers. In the middle of a chaotic attack, one of the scientists injects something into Chad's arm... When Chad comes to he learns he has a very unique microchip which has been bonded to him for life. Chad is told by one of the members of Avanti, the corporation which designed the microchip, he needs to go to Berlin to present it before the G20 conference. While on the plane for Berlin, Chad is warned by a reporter what he has in his arm could very well be the prototype to "The Mark of the Beast"... Does what she say have some legitimacy? And why are there people who will stop at nothing to steal the chip? What fascinated me the most about this movie is the fact they based the plot off of something real; the RFID Chip... It is scary to think about for various reasons.
One reason being the part where Eric Roberts says if the terrorists try to remove it from Chad's arm that it'll kill Chad and destroy itself, because that is real. Of course, another reason is the fact this insideous idea could very well be the actual Mark of the Beast described in the Book of Revelation someday... In regard to this movie, I thought it was pretty good. There was plenty of action and drama. If you don't believe in the rapture you might not like certain things being talked about in this movie, but I think for the most part it's enjoyable to watch even if you don't. The only downsides I have with this movie is that much of the movie is shown in the preview, and I also think they could have tied in certain details better. But then again, they showed immediately at the end of the movie that they plan to make a sequel! Overall this is a good movie and I plan to share it with others.
