Movie Reviews

Long, but definitely worth it
citan-uzuki | Georgia, USA | 12/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a long movie, but let me assure you that it is worth your time. Do not let the fact that it is dubbed from German discourage you. It is one of the better dubs out there.

The main selling point of this movie is the plot. It is both original and refreshing. It's not science fiction, although the description might give you that impression. This is one of those movies that is not easy to categorize. Even so, there's action, drama, romance, suspense, and comedy. The basic plot revolves around the finding of an unusual booklet from a 2000 year old burial tomb. The booklet appears to be the instruction manual for a video recorder. Given the location and the time period in question, the archeologists concluded that it is possible that this might lead them to a digital video recording of the events that were taking place during the time that the tomb was made. The location and time being Jerusalem, during the time of Christ. I won't spoil the plot for you though.

This is not one of those movies that you should watch if you have limited time. It takes three hours from the start to the conclusion. But it will definitely be worth it. I've read reviews of this movie. They were mostly 3-star reviews, but I took a chance and rented it anyway. I'm glad that I did. In my view, this is a 4.5 star movie."
Cool Story
Lonnie - | MACEDONIA, OH United States | 02/27/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ok... first of all I'm not gonna say this movie blew me away, etc. The story is an excellent time -travel sci-fi thriller, but as far as movie making and quality of the film itself , it's so-so. The acting isn't too great (ok, though), the production/direction is OK but not what most Americans are used to (huge Hollywood productions). I liked the story although it wasn't 100% original (sort of a mix of several other pre-existing sci-fi stories. It is a long movie but the suspense of the conclusion keeps the viewer interested. It was the story, though, that gives it a 4 star rating."
More enjoyable than several famous films put together
E. Manoukian | 11/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A five-star highly entertaining and intriguing movie which combines several elements from science (time traveling), religion, action/adventure
and even romance. If you enjoyed watching such movies as: "The Indiana Jones", "Davinci Code", "The Bond Movies", "Bourne Identity", "Marathon
Man", "Mission Impossible III", "Time Traveling [Back to the Future, Time
Machine,...]", you will probably enjoy more watching this one. I highly
recommend this repeatedly watchable film, running over three hours, well
photographed in exciting areas of Jerusalem and other places, dealing
with the greatest story every told - what more can I say. Probably
Spielberg could not have done it better. It is a must for every taste."
