God loses faith in humanity and sends his legion of angels to wipe out the human race for the second time. Mankind’s only hope lies in a group of misfits holed up in a diner in the desert who are aided by the archangel Michael.
The Bible says in the book of Revelation that no one should add to or take away from the scriptures. This film does just that. In this version of the apocalypse, Michael the archangel (played by Paul Bettany) rebels against God because God is tired of man’s evil ways and intends to obliterate mankind. So Michael travels to earth to prevent man from being destroyed. In this story the angel Gabriel travels to earth to destroy man and to fight against Michael. Considering this story suggests God wanting to destroy the earth, which the Bible says clearly He would not do again following the flood, and considering it makes out God to be human, because God later changes his mind and more or less realizes He has made a mistake, well…many Jews and Christians will probably be upset. And they should be. Toss in the fact that both Michael and Gabriel are featured as less than honorable, and that this film is extremely violent, not to mention it has evil angels possessing humans and well…let’s just say I was glad when the movie and this debacle were over.
One of the very few good things about this movie was a character saying his father asked him to think ahead about dying some day and would he be proud of the way he had lived his life. However, this movie contains strong language in addition to the violence so we cannot come close to awarding it our Dove Seal.
