With the New World Order clamping down on all aspects of life as they know it, a group of people decide to band together against the regime and refuse to take the mark that is required to buy and sell. The evil world leader is coming down hard on people and sending out his troops to enforce the receiving of the mark even in small towns. When this small group of people, who now identify as Christians, gets word of this, they start taking in more refugees. But how long will they be able to hide, especially when the tyrant comes to town?
Production Quality (.5 point)
If you can make it through the long opening sequence of this production, you’re still in for plenty of nonsense. For starters, the video quality is fairly grainy, and camera work is quite shaky. There are also a ton of audio problems, including outside noises, weird sound effects, and an odd soundtrack. The sets and locations are fine, but they are quite limited considering the fact that this plot is trying to cover international issues. Finally, there is far too much wasted time in this film, thus demonstrating a lack of sufficient editing. In short, this is a highly disappointing production.
Plot and Storyline Quality (0 points)
New World Order: The End Has Come is just another typical apocalyptic plot with a predictable setup and progression. However, there is hardly any true apocalyptic content as vague concepts are lazily tossed around and toyed with while still being confined to basically one neighborhood. There are also unnecessary time jumps that are made up for with obvious information dump dialogue that talks about all kinds of off-screen content. Sometimes things happen with no real explanation, and there is lot of juvenile forced drama and cheesy conflicts. Finally, the characters seem very fake and exhibit ridiculous dialogue. In short, there is really no reason for this plot to exist because it has nothing to offer.
Acting Quality (0 points)
As usual for this type of film, which is unfortunately all too common, this cast is very amateurish. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with using amateur cast members, like all actors and actresses, they need coaching, which is clearly not present in New World Order. Lines and emotions are very forceful and awkward, while some cast members are overly theatrical and sometimes even bizarre. Basically, this is just another mess.
With all the horrid apocalyptic films that have already been made, we don’t need another one, yet they are still being made! It used to be that apocalyptic was the different genre in Christian entertainment, but now it’s become its own caricature. Until somebody can actually create an engaging and professionally done apocalyptic film, there needs to be a moratorium on this genre. The biggest reason for this is that some non-Christians may watch these types of movies more than other Christian films, and if they do, what will they see? More often than not, they’ll see another laughable disaster.
Final Rating: .5 out of 10 points
