Production Quality (.5 point)
The second installment of this unfortunate series is much like the first. There is barely any difference in the production quality of Caught in the Eye of the Storm and Revelation. Camera work is still shaky and video quality is still blurry. Special effects are very cheap and out of place. Audio quality is average, but the soundtrack is loud and annoying. There is some improvement with the sets, locations, and props, however. But this film is still replete with Jack Van Impe product placements. The editing is also poor. In short, while there is some slight improvement here, it’s not significant.
Plot and Storyline Quality (0 points)
The Apocalypse series is very thin on plot content and heavy on agenda-pushing. Much of this film is dedicated to sequences of cheesy and stereotypical sitting around talking with robotic dialogue that is designed to force the plot along. There’s also a lot of technological mumbo jumbo lingo and a weird obsession with virtual reality devices. The plot has a predictable apocalyptic\suspense progression and is based on lots of coincidences. Also, it’s worth nothing that it’s extremely hard to follow the cast of characters that is supposed to be portrayed in this so-called series. In the grand scheme of things, it’s still difficult to find a justification for this series.
Acting Quality (0 points)
Made in 1999, this cast is far too theatrical. Jeff Fahey is always a head-scratching cast, since he basically whispers all the time. Emotions are either flat or overblown and line delivery is stiff. Unfortunately, nothing good to say here.
Once again I ask, who’s going to watch this movie? It has nothing going for it whatsoever. There is no plot and certainly no notable production quality. The casting is horrible. Most Christians are and should be offended by this nonsense. Once again, the world is laughing. This kind of junk reaches no one and only adds to the caricature of Christian film. But wait…there’s still more of these…
Final Rating: .5 out of 10 points
