This was actually way better than I thought it would be and I enjoyed it. Eric Roberts had way too short of a role though.

Excellent approach for budget film...Most intriguing!

"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. It's clever, how she tries to seduce her own husband, grant him hope, yet that she never strays from her new found faith in the Community. Several other actors play secondary roles with surprising skill.
Bottom-line: This movie will grow on you! It's not fast-paced, but it does not drag either. There is much food for thought, and the mixture of genres and ideas is intriguing.
Well worth a few hours of thoughtful viewing."
Great Christian Movie

"This was a creative take on the end times, I really enjoyed it.
Its a little low-budget, but the performances were great. William Baldwin did a great job. Its good to see Christian films finally coming around."

"Great movie based on the end times. Not just for Christians, but anyone with an interest in set-in-the-near-future apocalyptic movies and tv shows.
One reviewer states that Revelation (singular, there's no 's' on the end of that) was a warning against worshipping Nero. To my knowledge Nero never forced everyone to get a mark so they could buy and sell, and Christians wouldn't need to be warned against worshipping Nero - that's covered in the 10 commandments. Please, PLEASE, if you must slag off Christianity, at least say something you can support. And to the guy who compares Christian martyrs with suicide bombers, the key difference is that Christian martyrs DIE for their faith, suicide bombers KILL for theirs.
Ignorance like these examples is one of the prevailing enemies which Christians face in the modern world. Look at what's going on in the world, advancements in bio-technology offer a possible mark of the beast, wars in the middle east which may lead to the seven year peace deal foretold in the Book of Daniel. It's coming, and I hope that you realise that before it's too late for you.
Any criticism of Christianity is accepted and endured, but critisicm of any other religion is called intolerant.
Intolerance works both ways."
