Something really different - an intelligent movie!
Steven Lynch | 03/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Nice to see something different - intelligent, thought provoking and multilayered, stitching together 2000 years of history, myth and magic in the thriller/horror genres. Alchemy, religion, secret societies, astrology, sacred geometry, ancient relics mixed with murder, ritual and mayhem (burning, barbecued and flayed bodies abound)- it's a heady brew and you need to keep your wits about you to take in all the detail, but its worth it - then look through the 1 hour of explanatory extras/documentaries on the DVD to find out just how much you missed and watch it all over again. A great historical/mystical/spiritual puzzle with loads of special effects. Recommended if you want more than the standard Hollywood fare. Also a must for Udo Kier fans."
Behold... the Loculus!
L Gontzes | Athens, Greece | 01/14/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Revelation sheds light on the search for a missing relic called the Loculus. Having been in the hands of the Knights Templar for 700 years its secret was lost. Forces are now vying to unlock things better left undisturbed...
There are slight hints of the Ninth Gate (starring Johnny Depp) and the X-Files, and strong/obvious elements of the Da Vinci Code so the movie falls into the action/adventure/mystery/thriller/horror type of category.
It's an adventure that includes some pretty exciting and exotic locations such as Britain, France, Greece, and Malta.
In short, the acting and the dialogues are extremely weak, while the plot and the setting, are really very good, therefore, the potential for a great movie was definitely there if only the actors and writers could... act and write!
Overall, though not a masterpiece, it will surely provide for an evening's entertainment, as it is one of those films that gets you and keeps you thinking long after it's over!
In conclusion, the film establishes a GREAT cliffhanger for a sequel, which I would definitely line up to watch!
Great movie for Dan Brown fans
Don Snyder | Columbus, OH USA | 12/15/2003

"Just saw this movie and thought it was outstanding. By coincidence, I had recently finished reading Dan Brown's novel "Angels & Demons." I was struck by the similar feel of the stories and heartily recommend this movie to anyone who has read the Robert Langdon novels by Dan Brown. If they ever get around to turning Dan Brown's books into movies, I don't think you could find a more perfectly suited director than Stuart Urban. Revelation shows he has a feel for the style and understanding of the content. Great flick!"

"Any movie that looks at the end times through the lens of Christianity (even as badly focused as this one) deserves at least a look. It does help to know a little about the Knights Templar/Masonic order to follow the story line, but only a little. The movie has a lot of faults scripturally yes, but the whole..."I can't tell you now...but decode the disk and you will understand" plot was really the lamest part of the movie. For folks who have their own theories or conjectures about end time events... the conception of a new christ by a Wiccan priestess on top of a Star of David floor mosaic, is probably not one of the more popular ones. The chick did have a nice bum though. There was something about the movie though that did raise some interesting points. The struggle for power using Christ as a tool rings true for nearly 2000 years."
