    I didn't see the first one. Did I miss something?
    I saw the comercial for this one on TBN, while clicking through the channels on day, and stopped to watch. It looked good. So now I'm wondering if I should see the first one.

    I saw the omega movie and was disappointed. It is watchable, though not the best. There is a endtimes movies series that you just have to see if you like endtime movies. This is the "Thief In the Night" series that starts out with "Thief In the Night", goes on to "A Distant Thunder", "Image Of the Beast" and "The Prodigal Planet". Check out these web sites:

    A Thief In the Night

    The Prodigal Planet

    I have seen one other end times movie that I enjoyed but unfortunately can't remember the name. But check out those I've listed above, you won't be disappointed!

    I saw the Thief in the Night series several years ago, and found them watchable, barely.

    On the one I watch the voice on it claimed it was from the Bible, so it was cliaming to be biblical, but Biblical it was not.

    Just what was that giant hairy monster arm that grabbed that woman in the cabin anyway?

    I thought they were the greatest, obviously. They kept me on the edge of my chair waiting to see what would happen next, and then there was the hero of the film, a man who truly looked serious and Godly. Choosing him as the main actor must have been some brainstorm!

    How did you find them not biblical? Did you see the map that the fallen preacher used, mapping out the endtimes? From there it was simply a matter of following that timeline from beginning to the end. Omega Code didn't even try, from this perspective, though they did have the special effects.

    In my opinion Omega Code could have used a few more hairy arms, especially if they were following a biblical text of any kind. Unfortunately, I think you could find just about any kind of hidden code in a book as big as the Bible, but finding one that was meant to be there for us to find, forget it.

    I liked the Omega Code, but I like Science Fiction. [​IMG]

    Here is my review:

    Yet another $$$$$$$$$$ making scheme which utilizes bad theology and fear/ sensationalism to scare people. Tim Lehaye would be proud.

    Thumbs down here...I won't even rent this one for $.50...which is probably about all it will go for in the video stores once it fails miserably in the Box Office.

    I actually read somewhere that the first one was quite successful financially.

    The second one is expected to do even better (financially).

    Tristar,
    Glad you liked them. But narrorator did claim it straight from the Bible, and I've never seen a hairy monster in the bible.

    On the other hand, I do agree with you about the code. Which is why I never saw the movie Omega Code.

    [q] How did you find them not biblical? [/q]

    Its been almost 5 years since I watched the "A Thief In the Night" series so I can't remember much, but I DO remember that they teach that there will be a second chance for those who rejected Christ to be saved after the rapture. I can't remember anything else.

    The original Omega Code never made it to Canada, so I haven't seen it (and I suspect the same will be true of the sequel).

    But if Left Behind: The Movie is the pinnacle of Christian filmmaking that it is said to have been, then I probably am not going to be beating any paths to the cinema to see a lesser-known, low-budget film . . .

    When Christian filmmakers stop obsessing on end-time thrillers and get around to making more great dramatic movies of the same calibre as Chariots of Fire or Dead Man Walking (neither of which, so far as I know, was made by professing Christians), or actual thought-provoking SF/fantasy such as Blade Runner or The Green Mile, be sure to let me know.

    Some theatre owners refused to show the film, concerned that vivid imagery of stylized violence and war in the Middle East might be unsuitable entertainment for audiences in the wake of September 11. But in the places where it was shown, Megiddo, which was funded by Trinity Broadcasting, had the highest per-screen average of any movie released this week.

    Like I have said, I can find no where in the Bible where that giant hairy monster arm was. Can you? Please, do show me where. The film calims to be exactly biblical, they made the claim, so where is it? They should not have made the claim if it isn't in the bible.

    :(
