    Revelations is a spooky, classy thriller depicting the world as a battleground between satanists and those who adhere to miracles revealing God's divine plan for humanity. Bill Pullman stars as Harvard scientist Bill Massey, whose successful quest to bring his daughter's seemingly demon-possessed serial killer to justice turns him into a well-known debunker of others who claim to speak for the Beastmaster. Problem is, the man who killed Massey's girl appears to be the real thing, endowed with prophetic powers and a second sight that comes in handy when it's time to go after the grieving hero's other child.

    Enter Sister Josepha (Natascha McElhone), a miracles investigator whose work is financially supported by a famous billionaire but disowned by the Vatican. Josepha has been led to Massey through a brain-dead girl who, though medically impossible, quotes scripture and has drawn a map to his office. Despite his skepticism, Massey teams with the nun in search of a kidnapped baby who may very well be the Christ-child in His just-in-time-for-Armageddon second coming. Written by David Seltzer (Dragonfly), and directed by occasional Buffy helmer David Semel and Lili Fini Zanuck (Rush), Revelations has an appealing vitality (especially when Massey and Sister Josepha become targets for assassins), a nice Hollywood gloss, and an unsettling air of mystery, as if angels and demons really are duking it out for dominion of the Earth right under our noses. --Tom Keogh

    Product Description

    The time of miracles is once again at hand in the six-hour epic event, Revelations. Bill Pullman (Independence Day) stars as Harvard professor Dr. Richard Massey, an astrophysicist who's certain that all worldly events can be explained by science. He is challenged by Sister Josepha Montafiore (Natascha McElhone, Solaris), a devout nun who leads him on a quest through a world of true believers, heretics and Satanists. Drawn together by personal tragedy, they are swept into a deepening mystery when they discover evidence that the world, as predicted by The Book of Revelations, has reached The End of Days. Join the battle for the fate of mankind in the electrifying phenomenon, Revelations. Time Magazine declares, "It delivers." - James Poniewozik (Time Magazine)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling TV Mini-Series May 17, 2005
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    "Relevations," a six-part TV mini-series comprised of one-hour episodes, is as well crafted, produced and acted as any modern movie blockbuster.

    Based loosely, but definitely not literally, on Biblical prophesies depicting the End of Days, the story, (by David Seltzer) builds steadily from hour to hour until the thrilling and truly terrifying climax -- pitting the ultimate good against the ultimate evil with the future of the entire world hanging in the balance.

    The Apocolyptic tale unfolds through the experiences of Dr. Richard Massey, (brilliantly portrayed by Bill Pullman) whose daughter Lucinda, Lucy, was brutally murdered by a satanist in a ritualistic sacrafice to the devil in which he cut out the child's heart while she was alive. (In a VERY wise move, viewers are never shown the murder, but only learn about it and its aftermath.)

    The murder, and subsequent arrest of the non-repentent killer Isaiah Haden (portrayed in a chilling performance by Michael Massee) triggers a series of international events that supposedly coincide with the Christian Biblical prophesies describing the ultimate battle between God and Satan. Especially chronicled is the "Second Coming" of Christ, who is believed by Christians to one day to return to earth to vanquish evil forever and literally end the physical world.

    While the story is based on a Biblical foreshadowing, the core event depicted in the series is not: the apparent second virgin-birth of Christ. While Biblical theologians have debated End of Days prophesies since they were first translated, there has been little argument among Christians that Christ will not return as an infant born of a second virgin mother.

    2.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Must Be Known May 19, 2005
    Format:DVD
    I NEVER write these things. I doubt people even read them normally. But this is a time I must be heard. The truth must be known since it is painfully evident that the producers got together and wrote their own review. It's the long one that reads like a High School Book Report.

    This series started out and remained a riveting jaunt through biblical mythos. The idea of taking quotes from throughout the Bible to cursor each section of the mini-series was a researched stroke of genius. It set tone and educates us on some of the more interesting quotes that we might be able to use to scare the hell out of Bible waving, Damnation preaching, Christians that worship The Left Behind series.

    I love this series, and I'm a Buddhist. I thought that it was immensely interesting and fresh. It puts a skeptic's take on the Bible and it's prophesies while maintaining the science that could quite possibly support it. The writing on the series was amazing... Then the last episode came on.

    I have never been so angry about an ending in all my life. I watched, waiting for the massive pay off, the cu de gra, the little kazoo at the bottom of my Cocoa Puffs. It never came. I glanced nervously at the clock and saw that five minutes were left. Please, God, save your show, you have a vested interest. But, alas, even He knew the end had come and the writer apparently got bored and decided to end it with a, "We'll just have to go find the child." Shrug. "Good Night Folks!" Then the ad at the bottom of the screen for the DVD.

    Save yourselves. This DVD is good, but the ending should be saved for a drunken stupor that will force a delusional world where your mind might concoct even a marginally better ending.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Revelations DVD Review August 19, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I had seen this series on TV and enjoyed it, but had recorded it from TV and then had all the commercials to contend when re-watching it. This product was really enjoyable without the commercials.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Actually better than I thought. May 15, 2005
    Format:DVD
    I'm not a religious person but I was fascinated by this show. The locations, the characters. It's boldness was reason alone to watch. Now this is my personal opinion, I'm sure there will be others who hate this show but if you want to see something different and are tired of "reality tv" watch Revelations. It may not change your life but it's a great way to kill an hour.

    David Seltzer, the creater of this mini-series is also the one who created "The Omen", and its three spawn (all 4 parts of the "Omen Trilogy"). This is very "Omen-esque", in the writing, style, theology (or theological errors, for those of us who study theology), and pacing.

    It is a pretty good film in the quality of filmmaking (again, this is very much in keeping with the Omen Trilogy), while its theology is VERY MUCH "open for debate" (this is entertainment, not theology), it is a very well crafted flim with an interesting story.

    Mr. Saltzer also adapted Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" into the 1971 screenplay for the film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". So not all of his writing is dealing with "Demons" and "Appocolypse"... but all are very touching and crafted stories.

    While as a film, I might give this a "5 Star" rating due to the quality of it from a filmmaking and story craft point of view, it lost a couple of stars for the problems with its theology. But I still gave it "3 Stars" because it is a beautiful and uplifting piece of fiction.

    ...i.e. it doesn't agree well with any interpretation of Revelation I've read. I'll watch it again soon and see if I become further enlightened.
