Overview

Faith and skepticism walk side by side as two people look toward what might be the end of the world in this made-for-TV supernatural thriller. Richard Massey (Bill Pullman) is a college professor whose teenaged daughter recently died at the hands of a Satanist, who killed the girl as part of a ritual. While Massey is a confirmed atheist, he's trying to make some sort of sense of his daughter's death when he meets Sister Josepha Montifiore (Natascha McElhone), a nun who does research in unusual phenomena. Sister Josepha has become convinced that a number of signs point to the appearance of the Antichrist and the Apocalypse as predicted in the Book of Revelations; Massey becomes her skeptical accomplice as he searches for closure. Written for the screen by David Seltzer, the miniseries Revelations debuted on NBC on April 13, 2005.

Revelations 2.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Revelations is a nice imaginary battle of good against eveil. But here the evil is neither good nor evil but sinister! References to demonic and devine are sprinkled throughout with little or believable consequences. Nice work of fiction, but that is all it is

First of all, if you are a conservative, evagelical, fundamentalist, born-again, Bible-believing Christian then Revelations is nothing but a pure fantasy loosely based on the Bible and, therefore, it may not be for you. For example, the title of the Bible book is Revelation (singular - check the Greek) and not Revelations (plural). But, if you are a Biblical scholar who likes to compare and contrast religious movies with the Bible, then you should have fun with this. That being said, if you enjoyed The Omen (also from David Seltzer), then you'll enjoy this (there's those daggers again!). Good and Evil are at war once again (or is it "still"?), with evil apparently getting the upper hand. As with The Omen, gothic European locations abound, and there's even a "let's raid the graveyard at night" scene in which the two main characters (a scientist and a nun) have an Indiana Jones adventure moment (sorry, no vicious mastiffs ar dead jackel this time, but there is a really cool explosion). Bill Pullman fits into his scientist role quite nicely, as the Gregory Peckish skeptic who chooses to remain in denial until the end. It's satisfying to see an intelligent actor playing an intelligent role. Thanks, Bill! But, the overall entertainment value lies in the interaction between the characters, as they react and respond to what may or may not be supernatural forces at work. Dr. Richard Massey (Pullman) and Sister Josepha Montafiore (Natascha McElhone) provide first-rate conflict between the skeptic and the believer (how refreshing to see a male-female pairing that isn't about sex!). As they each debate their positions about the unfolding events, they develop a deep and mutual respect for each other (if only married couples could be so lucky!). Michael Massee is also a hoot as Evil Incarnate Isaiah Haden (think little Damien all grown up), althougb his performance is a wee bit over the top. Overall, Revelations succeeds as a reflective character study in which all the players react and respond to the good AND evil events and people around them. Compare and contrast yourself with these people - what would you do if it happened to you? However, as a Bible study, Revelations is seriously lacking. Many scriptures are taken WAY out of context, and some of the so-called Biblical events described (such as Jesus returning as a little baby - again) simply don't exist. But, if you like eerie religious fantasy then sit back and enjoy the ride!
