With that said, the writing in this film doesn't even rate a single star. If it were possible, I'd give it a negative two stars. For starters, the film opens and we have no idea whatsoever what is even going on. We hear narration mumbling about a "world out of control" and we see rioting in the streets and missiles firing and explosions. Was it an EMP attack as implied by teasers press releases or was it the Rapture or was America attacked? We do not know, and this is kind of critical if you're trying to set the stage (no pun intended) for the rest of the film.
Sometimes good acting can salvage bad writing and sometimes good writing can salvage bad acting. In the case of this film, nothing can save it. The acting is not even high school thespian level. Costumes and wardrobe are totally unbelievable.
Nothing is believable. For instance, ISIS comes to some podunk Texas hideaway where a dozen or so people meet and launches an all-out offensive to ostensibly kill only two Christians. When the main character whips out his trusty Beretta 92 handgun and dispatches the hordes of select-fire wielding caucasian ISIS terrorists, the "leader" of this ISIS cell (who wields an American made AR 15 of all things) is the only survivor and he keeps calling out taunts such as "Christian, come show yourself!"
Next, you have three late-teens looking "guards" who are guarding the apparent only road in to this "crossroads" hideaway and they're about as qualified to be guarding anything as a crack dealer is to mix and dispense pills at a pharmacy. But these boys do play a mean game of "Go Fish." No, I kid you not--they play an enthusiastic game of "Go Fish" while on guard duty.
My wife and I made it through about thirty minutes of this DVD and mutually agreed that we couldn't take another minute. Have no idea how it turns out and could care less. I suspect that if you've seen the trailer, then you've seen the best parts of the movie and the plot itself in its whole.
We try to support Christian themed movies and projects, but this aberration will have us rethinking that commitment.
