After all the previews and attention that this movie received, I couldn't wait to add it to my collection. Thinking that it was going to be an annointed christian movie, I was rather let down. This could have just been a movie on TV. The actors were great, it was the content that was lacking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Is there intelligent life on other planets? That¿s the sci-fi theme of Deceived, latest project from Cloud Ten Pictures. ''Intense'' is the word to describe Deceived. Political intrigue, personal greed and authentic faith are stirred together in explosive proportions when principal players are trapped in a space observatory. The human relationships and conflicts are as explosive as the plot¿s circumstances. Billionaire Emmett Shaw (played by Stewart Bick) claims personal ownership of a signal he believes is coming from extraterrestrial life. He assembles an unlikely crew including computer guru Jack Jones (Judd Nelson), an investigative reporter, and a arrogant radio preacher who is also Shaw¿s spiritual mentor. Shaw¿s party travels to the Sierra Nevadas observatory (funded largely by Shaw) with plans to break history¿s biggest story ever. Upon arrival, they discover that their on-site technicians are missing and the project has been sabotaged. After Col. David Garrett (Lou Gossett, Jr.) arrives from the Pentagon, a violent storm traps the group in the observatory, and a test of wills ensues because both Garrett and Shaw are accustomed to being in charge. The dilemma addressed in Deceived reveals how human nature may lead to compromise and rationalization in order to achieve selfish ends. With the gripping story of Deceived, Cloud Ten Pictures continues to advance the company¿s reputation for excellent drama presented in the context of a moral worldview. This one gives movie buffs reason to look forward to more work from Cloud Ten.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

WOWSERS!!!! We are talking beyond WOW here! This is a MUST watch!!!! I must admit, I have always been a scifi fan loving movies that can hold you on the edge of your seat with things from out of this world. But lately, it seems Hollywood thinks that it takes sex, nudity, and profanity to hold people to their seats. So I had given up on my favorite genre of movies..... that is until now! Decieved uses more than just special effects to hold you. The characters have depth and carry you through the movie from beginning to end. They have made the good vs. evil movie into one with characters that you can love and some that I know I was moved to extremely dislike. They hold you right until the end with this one! Cloud Ten Pictures and Andre van Heerden did their best job yet with this film and I really look forward to seeing more things like this come from this great Canadian film company. While they really drew my attention with their movie Revelation, this one just broke through all the boundaries and brought forth a movie that has quickly become my favorite movie! I've bought the video and have watched it over and over and still will watch it again! And I will be buying copies to give to friends and relatives because it is such a powerful film that watching it just once isn't enough! I do hope that Hollywood stands up and takes notice. You can have a good movie without the sex and language that keep so many movies out of the homes because the kids can't watch them. Some of us adults are tired of Hollywood thinking that we are too stupid to look beyond the sex and 'hip' language to find a film that actually has some great value to it and a real story also. And how great it was to see ''Smitty'' a Christian woman not made to appear stupid, foolish, or a prude. Judd Nelson, a self confessed computer geek, made me proud to be one myself! And Lou Gossett Jr gave the performance of his career in my opinion. Hollywood take notice! If you are looking for a good thriller with romance, comedy, and strong characters and a good story line, that you are not afraid of who might enter the room while you are watching it, then I strongly recommend that you rent or buy Decieved today! You won't be disappointed and you may walk away with a new appreciation for a solid story line and a few good basic principles in life!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
