"I watched this movie on the day of its release. It was well put together, had an excellant cast, and a message to convey. The storyline is about a policeman who does not know the Lord and his marriage is on the rocks. This can apply to so many people, so the movie can be used as an evangelistic tool. The main character comes to know the Lord through a series of dreams in preparation for the rapture."

"I thought it was fair but not as good as some previous Christian videos. The message implicatiion was good by being given the same day over and over to get the message to be saved was okay but then to have the end happen as soon as being saved I thought happened to fast. I felt that it might give the impression to many people thinking that they will be notified ahead of time such as the instance in the film and won't worry about being saved till then.
However there were some very good redeeming points in the video also, and inspite of my rating of fair it is worth seeing to understand the message within the message. I am sure othes may find this enlightening and rate it higher. I simply am rating it along side of other Christian movies I have."
Okay for a viewing...

"When a detective saves the life of a kidnapped woman, and the person's boyfriend offers to let him know if he could repay them, he's interested in going with the two of them to their yacht when they go on their trip to Mexico. He takes his wife and his partner + his wife go along as well.
This is like a spiritual version of "Groundhog Day", with the man's day repeating. It's suggested that it's a weird dream, but to him he's waking up at the start of the same day. Of course, nobody but God knows when the rapture will take place. So, when he finally gets to understand more of what's happening and accepts Christ, he ultimately knows that the Lord will be returning -- and even the time because he alarm is set for some reason. It's an alright film but not scriptural in this area.
SPOILER: I think that it might have been interesting if, when the man came to Christ because of the strangeness of the day repeating, the event stopped happening when he accepted Him...but the rapture did NOT take place. So, he'd not know when it would take place and it was just a bizarre phenomenon.
- There is some violence. For example, he is killed a couple times; note that he never tries to end his own life, like in "Groundhog").
- As for other's revieweres thinking that there's a type of nudity or too much skin, that is very unfounded. Only the main ladies are in bikinis and they are very modest; the leading
man (actor David White) is shirtless just once or so. Nothing offensive in this department.
- The one part that is especially silly in the script is when people disappear right in front of a few people on the yacht...and only the main character actually has some kind of
reaction. The others act just stand around like it is nothing out of the ordinary...and start to blame the man for having something to do with it because his watch had an alarm going off right before the event. They wonder what he did to them.
- The scenery is wonderful and there's very nice filming of birds, dolphins, and sunsets. It's a beautiful location.
- On the DVD, there is a commentary with the film and a behind the scenes featurette. As for the subtitles, they are disappointing. The words are tiny and lag very-much behind the actual words spoken.
- This is not the best apocalyptic film, but it was a bit interesting."
