‘Apocalypse’ Series ~ CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
Apocalypse I: Caught in the Eye of the Storm is unlike any Christian movie ever made. More than 300,000 sold. For the first time, the prophesied last days are vividly brought to life in this exciting and dramatic full-length motion picture epic. Army after army descends into the Valley of Armageddon in central Israel.
Millions of people suddenly vanish. It’s a media event unlike any other in history, and the entire world is glued to their television sets. At that very moment, a great charismatic leader arises and performs a miracle of astounding dimensions. Is he the long-awaited Messiah? The whole world seems to be convinced he is.
Only Bronson Pearl (Richard Nester) and Helen Hannah (Leigh Lewis), co-anchors of the World News Network are in a position to uncover the truth. But as Helen discovers the identity of this great leader she is torn between her deep love for Bronson and her new found understanding about Christ and the antichrist. With global police forces in hot pursuit, this is but one chance to warn the world as it rushes headlong into the Apocalypse!
This is the FIRST of the series and has more of a soap opera feel to it. Here is what I liked about this one:
- LOVED the music, especially “Love Has Been Following You”. Fits perfectly.
- God’s delays are NOT God’s denials. We ALL need to remember this one.
- No one will touch one hair on our heads…unless He allows it. (That is true for Christians)
- You never know who will be touched by the message of Jesus.
- Fabulous, powerful ending, best part of the film.
In this electrifying sequel to the smash hit Apocalypse, the antichrist has come to power and a new global regime is in place. Government officials are distributing virtual reality headsets to everyone on Earth to be worn on a special “Day of Wonders.”
Can Thorold Stone warn the Christian underground before this sinister technology destroys all remaining believers? Excellent production and continuation of the first film. Shows the rise and power of the Anti-Christ as Christians try to survive during his rule.
This is my favorite of the 4 part series. This is such a powerful movie, along with some great humor. This is what I liked about this one:
- Using the song, “Wish we’d all been ready” from Thief in the Night. Great song.
- The Scene with Mr. Parker and the 2 detectives was great! Reminds us that our battle is NOT against flesh and blood.
- Mrs. Davis and her powerful faith.
- The quote, “No proof is enough if the heart is not ready”. I wish we would remember this too. The Holy Spirit is the the One that really does the work on the heart.
- We cannot go by our senses or our feelings. We must walk by faith.
- Once the mark is taken there is no more hope and there is a noticeable change as the Holy Spirit is no longer working with that person.
- The fantastic ending that resembles the 3 Hebrews in the fiery furnace. FABULOUS!
You know it’s faith when it’s all you have left. Gary Busey, Margot Kidder and Howie Mandel star in Tribulation, the third in the Apocalypse series. Police detective Tom Canboro (Busey) awakens from a coma only to discover that he is living in the time of the Great Tribulation.
The Rapture has occurred and the world has changed dramatically. In an interesting twist unique to this movie, millions have disappeared and no one who remains can even remember that they ever existed!
The Mark of the Beast is everywhere and those who have not accepted it are ruthlessly hunted down. The most hunted are Christian believers who are exposing the self-proclaimed Messiah as the devil himself. A top-quality drama.
Love this one too. Very unique and powerful. This film really shows the dangers of the occult. Here are some things I loved about this one:
- How easy it is to open the door to Satan and his evil angels.
- Easily shows how we want temporal instead of eternal blessings. How sad.
- We are totally unarmed without the Bible. (Great scene)
- Some great moments of God’s power.
- God protected something that prayed over. Very significant.
The Supreme Court vs. The Supreme Being. Let the Trial Begin. It is the imminent future. The world follows one government and one man. It is a world of peace, yet some still fight the authorities. To crush the dissent, the ruler arranges a trial of unprecedented proportion. A trial in the world court to be televised to a global audience.
A trial that would see Helen Hannah, a Christian and a champion of the resistance, convicted and executed for hatred of the human race. Everything is prepared and only humiliation and death await the accused. There is only one small problem – Mitch Kendrick, the defense attorney, has been tricked into representing Hannah, and now hunts for any way out.
In a clever twist he puts not Hannah, but her leader, the real scourge of this new world, to the test. Suddenly it is the biggest trial of history with the guilt or innocence of God himself hanging in the balance. While appearing loyal to the new world order, Kendrick at first defends Hannah’s God for his own pride. But as he listens to her, he realizes that she might be telling the truth.
Threatened by a hired assassin and the world leader himself, Kendrick still fights for more answers. Memories of a misunderstood father, the love of a tortured woman, and the glare of the world all bear down, as the trial rushes to a conclusion. Within the final verdict lay the lives of the innocent, the ruling against God, and the destiny of a lost soul. Stars Mr. T.
There are some real surprises in this one…interesting twists. Here are a couple of things about this one I liked:
- Loved the cast in this one.
- The Resurrection testimony scene – fabulous!
There was supposed to be a 5th in the series, Apocalypse V: The Chosen. We aren’t sure if this will ever be released.
