Did anyone see this movie?
I'm just wondering what other people thought about it.
I have mixed feelings.
One the one hand, it seemed like the premise for a good story.
On the other hand, it seemed to spiral into the "unbelievable" towards the end.

We watched it. I thought the first 3/4 of it were sort of an enjoyable "bad" movie, but in the last quarter I thought it completely fell apart and just became "bad."

I thought it was an interesting premise, but I kept wondering just how many people had to die before it would make the list. Apparently it didn't count things with running totals, like wars! :^)

Overall, thumbs down from me.

Watched it tonight and it was ok. I didn't guess right away what was going on... which is good...lol. But the signs were there that it had to do with religion and prophesy. Ezchiel and such.

Overall, the B rating some gave it was pretty much right on. It was entertaining, but it lacked a few things at the end with the kids I wish they would have given more about. Can't say anything more, else I'd give the end away...lol.

Yeah, there were big, gaping plot holes in the story.
There was not enough depth and explanation given to several key factors in the story.
And for the life of me, I could not understand the motivation of Nicolas Cage's character to do several of the things he did in this story.

I can't understand Nic Cage's motivation to do some of the movies he does! :)
