Tribulation is a great movie no matter how you look at it
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Other reviews stated that they weren't sure the Book of Revelation is true or not. Others say the portrayal of the great Tribulation isn't all that good, while others loved it. The movie is an excellant movie. All that it attempts to do is take one of many possible scenarios of how Anti-Christ can rule and control people after God has taken His believers home with Him. The movie shouldn't be taken at full face value for that reason because no one knows for sure how anti-Christ will be able to rule and have power. The route they chose I think is good, because it combines true action, suspense, and sci-fi, that any good movie lover desires. The overall message is there, that there will come a time on our planet when Tribulation will come to all and people will have to choose either faith in God, or the Mark of the beast. Rather than be "preachy" and "bible-thumping" the movie just seeks to portray very well just one possible scenario. I would strongly recommend the movie, the acting is fantastic, the production quality superb, the musical scores are very supportive, it's a great movie. Buy it, you'll see, and ignore any negative reviews."

"I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour in 1986 and since then I have been interested in the book of Revelation. I have heard different interpretations of what will happen in the Rapture and tribulation period, and I think it will be very different from what was depicted in this movie. I think the Anti-Christ will be more normal and human and subtle than he was depicted in this video. Some things that were very good about the movie were the wonderful acting by Gary Busey. Especially near the end. He really got into the character. Another good thing was the message that having a relationship with our creator, Jesus Christ is the most important goal and priority we should have. Some day soon everyone will realise that it is ALL that matters. I recommend you watch this series of videos and then read the book of Revelation...get a bible called The Message...it is really easy to understand, also read the book of Romans and John. Most of all get to know Jesus, He`s real and waiting to hear from you : ) He is just a prayer away."
Far exceeded expectations

"This movie by the makers of Left Behind far exceeded my expectations. I thought this movie was excellent. Unlike some reviewers I felt the acting was at least pretty good and for the most part very good. I was a little worried that I would not be able to follow the movie because I haven't seen Apocalypse or Revelation, but that was not the case. There were times when things got slightly confusing, mostly due to the complex nature of the film. Having some knowledge of end times prophesy is helpful but not necessary to enjoy this film. As a Christian I feel it is important for me to support Christian movies. I was not at all dissapointed by my decision to purchase this DVD. If you are a Christian you must see this movie. If you are not a Christian but would like to see a clean movie (there is some violence) without nudity or bad language then I highly recommend this movie."

"I was extremely unsure of seeing the new end times thriller critics raved about called Tribulation. Other than Gary Busey, who I knew as Buddy Holly in his younger years, I knew none of the other cast except for Leigh Lewis who I had seen in the previous two films in the Apocalypse series, both very good.
After seeing Tribulation, I immediately went out and bought the DVD along with the next movie in line, Judgment, which I will also be writing a review for. Tribulation is one of the greatest end times movies there is, as it provides in whatever state you are, in whatever position you're in, you can be taken in the Rapture, or be left behind. It's your choice which.
Top policeman Tom Canboro (Gary Busey) is on a seemingly normal night drive, when his car suddenly and mysteriously malfunctions sending him careening into oncoming traffic, plowing right into a big rig, sending poor Tom into temporary oblivian. After waking up 1 1/2 years later to find himself a different looking man, he realizes he's not the only one to undergo a strange change.
The world that he once knew is flipped upside down. Everyone seems to be supporting a new world leader named Franco Macalousso, and his strange looking new mark which is just a plain 666. As strange as this may seem, people that had once existed before Tom had his accident are nowhere in town, and the people that are still left don't remember anything that these people ever existed. Even his own brother who took the mark doesn't remember anything about their sister Eileen (Margot Kidder) who was a Christian. Guess Tom will just have to trust in someone else than his own family.
You won't understand a thing about a lot of the characters in this film until you see the other two Apocalypse, and Revelation. It's all worth it though. They give you some great insight to the Tribulation, and also provide some good entertainment. Take it from a Christian."
