Thoughtful, unique, character-driven--all with a plausible plot. Creating a quality end-times thriller on film, using a limited budget is such a tall order, success might be the ultimate proof that God exists! Six's task was all the more difficult, in that many have tried before: Left Behind, Omega Code, and the Apocalypse series come to mind. Yet, in spite of the competition, and difficulties, SIX does a credible job of portraying a world in which an entire society has been caught up in a personality cult. Three forces collide--the Community--those who buy into the new Messiah's message, and the government line that opponents are dangerous; Renegades--those that are just to independent to buy in or fit in; and finally, Christians--those convinced that the Community signals the end times, and who encourage allegiance to Jesus Christ.

Some have, with justification, complained about poor quality action scenes. Yet, the resignation with which runners run and chasers chase seems almost realistic. The Community is all-powerful--who can fight Goliath? And, for Christians, they know that time is coming to an end--why struggle? Those caught in the middle don't want to submit, but really have nowhere to go.

The dialogue can be preachy at times, but the atmosphere, tone, and nuanced environment generated by background music and surprisingly strong acting, make the conversations seem more like musings than rantings.

Finally, about characters: The protaganist plays the man in the middle, independent, torn, frustrated, dejected, yet defiant--perfectly. His sold-out wife in interesting, mostly for how much she looks like one of the main heroines in the Matrix movies.

Absolutely fantastic, September 13, 2004

Reviewer: D. Aladenika "Dori" (London, UK) - See all my reviews

I just wathced this DVD on the weekend and can honestly say it was absolutely fantastic!!! It is great to see the end times from a different perspective and to have a good storyline to the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Highly recommend it.

Also the performance from Stephen Baldwin was very good, he played it with conviction as did the rest of the actors.

Well done!!!

I really enjoyed this movie! It is a great Christian film (not an oxymoron, despite some movies to the contrary!). Six is an end-times movie - the world has fallen under the power of the anti-Christ and human free will and choice has been destroyed. It kind of reminded me of a Christian version of the movie Equilibrium (which I also highly recommend). The characters in Six are not cardboard cut-outs but well thought out individuals. The emphasis in Six is on human choice - we each have to choose for ourselves to accept or reject Jesus as the Savior. The consequences for each choice are clear - death on earth and eternal life with Jesus or death on earth and death forever in hell. But Six is careful to show that this decision is not a simple choice but involves real pain. One of the characters has lost everything - his job, his freedom, and the woman he loved. To him, God is as responsible for his losses as the anti-Christ is. So, because he can't overcome his pain and bitterness, he doesn't want to hear the message of salvation. My favorite part of the movie (without giving away any spoilers!) is the prison cells. When the Christians are sent to prison for refusing to accept the anti-Christ, they cover the cell walls with Bible verses. Their hope in death mystifies the nonbelieving prisoners and draws them to the message on the walls. This was a small but meaningful touch to the movie. It shows the love that the director and other crew members put into Six. Also, I was so excited to see Stephen Baldwin, one of the famous Baldwin brothers, in a cameo role. Stephen became a Christian after the attacks on September 11th and is such an enthusiatic believer that he can't help but inspire. I would highly recommend renting or buying the DVD version of Six for the special features.Read more ›

I bought this a couple of years ago, and can't stop watching it! It is POWERFUL! And totally entertaining, it will grab your attention from the 1st second, and keep it all the way to the last second. All the actors were SUPERB, but the BEST actor without question was Troy Winbush, The black gentleman in the middle of the movie. I can't watch his scene without getting chills! It's awesome, you just gotta see it to believe it. I LOVED Brody, and I couldn't believe what he did in the last scene-but it did wrap it all up well, the last scene actually being the finish of the first scene. I make copies & give them out to people, that's how great it is! BUY IT/LOVE IT!
P.S.-As for Wendy's review: Get it together girl!; first, there's no S in Revelation; second, God DID warn the character Luke that Tom was about to wail on him-Luke said, "I'm sorry Tom, do what you think you've gotta do", then Tom beat the stew outta him! HUH? ALRIGHTY THEN! Let Jesus love you before you wish you had have!
P.S.S.-Pixiepoison, You've got it! I TOTALLY agree with you-great points!
P.S.S.#2-HEY PEOPLE!!, PLEASE PLEASE read my review of the movie "The Moment After"! Think about the anagram I referred to, OK? (the mark of the B.iological E.ncoding A.nd S.atellite T.racking-what's that spell?) SPOOKY, HUH?! It makes PERFECT sense!
AND ANOTHER P.P.S.- I heard Pastor John Hagee say something SO true the other day, he said "nowadays people will accept any religion-you can worship a pigeon flying through the air, and people will applaud, but the moment you love Jesus, you're a PSYCHOPATH!!" AMEN! HOW TRUE! PEOPLE ARE THAT WAY!
