I loved this movie!!! Husband was a little lost ..did not understand why everyone was wanting this "thing" the guy had in his arm. He is a "baby" in the faithwalk and never really knew anything about the "mark" that the bible talks about.
Anyway, This movie was so easy for me to "see it happening ANY day now...so it kind of got me excited. There is guns and fighting and you see some blood but it made it more real. You can't have someone take over plane with a toy tazzer gun (violence would ensue then also)...yeah there has to be guns in it.
I watched both this one and Mark 2 Redemption. This one-- by FAR-- is much better. It is nice to see an action packed christian movie. Dont get me wrong --i like those slow moving and slow talking (halmark -type)movies but it was nice to see something a little different every once in a while.
The latest film (1st in a series) to portray events surrounding the Biblical teaching of the Mark of the Beast, the Rapture of the Faithful Church, and the Great Tribulation. Although it is a fictional story (highjacking of the plane, etc.), the film underlines the terror and violence that the Bible clearly predicts will happen subsequent to the above mentioned events unfolding (see Revelation, Corinthians, Thessalonians)... There is plenty of action. You won't be bored. But a hostage situation on a plane is portrayed with unflinching realism. The terrorists (as in real life) are merciless. Several bloody woundings and killings (with knives and guns), some of them executions because demands are not met quickly enough... The violence is handled by the producers in a (my opinion) PG-13 style. No cussing or sexuality. Alot of shooting and blood, but they do not make it gratuitous, just real enough to get the viewer thinking, these scenarios do happen. They will happen during the Tribulation (and are happening during the 'endtimes',ie. : the period of time just prior to Christ's physical return to the Earth). ... Not for those who don't like the above mentioned type film (violent realism), but like alot of Christian fiction films and books, much truth is woven into the story , uncorrupted by the storytelling. The Mark, the Rapture, and the Tribulation are clearly taught in the Bible, provided you believe it is the unchangeable Word of God, and don't ignore the unpleasant portions (which is always to the readers disadvantage, and eventually leads to some type of disaster). Best to take the Lord at His Word. As a great man once said, "If that Book does'nt have the answer, you don't have a problem". (Quote borrowed from another Pureflix film). ...God bless you as you seek spiritual truth, whether you choose to watch it or not.
I was disappointed in how much violence and death is shown. The action occurs when some evil people skyjack the airplane that all are on. I found this too close to the Twin Towers tragedy; they even kill a flight attendant. Was disappointed that there wasn't more 'religious' content.
