What if a computer disc held a code so powerful that it could change the world forever? While translating the Dead Sea Scrolls, a professor discovers a hidden formula that not only unlocks all known computer encryption, but also scientifically proves the existence of God! Religions, governments and mankind itself could rise and fall based on this information. Now the faith of one man is the only thing standing in the way of unscrupulous government agents and deadly corporate mercenaries who will stop at nothing to get the disc.

We have taken some photos of "The Code Conspiracy". They represent actual movie quality.
This is one of the WORST movies I've ever seen. Why? Where to start,where to start?How about dialogue? At one point in the movie, our hero John realizesthatthey are being watched by government agents. DOH! They followed themopenly right to the house Why the look of shock? So, what does hedo?1 - Interrupts a conversation that sounds as normal as any in thismovie2 - Writes "Keep talking normal" on a newspaper on thetable3 - Puts his index finger to his mouth with the universal "shhh" sign (howdoes one "shhh" while talking normally?)4 - Next, a looong 15 second pause in conversation5 - Then this REALLY subtle line - "I'll be right back. Follow me. Keep aneye out" in a monotone voice; end of conversation.Other really bad parts include the trimmed border and visible hingesaroundthe "secret" trap door and, my favorite, a hidden CD picked up in adifferent location than where it was hidden in an earlier scene. Sincebothplaces had flags, I guess I wasn't supposed to notice. I could list more,but it hurts my brain to think about how bad this moviewas.So, the screenplay is bad. Cinematography is bad. DVD production is bad(what's with the Apache helicopters on the main menu graphics and not inthemovie?). The acting is bad, but with this script, even Maria ConchitaAlonzo and David Warner can't help it. The concept of the story is great,but the execution is simply horrible, the suspense is transparent (thesunglasses thing was SOOO obvious), and there is a lot of extraneousdialogue (keyless encryption). It wasn't a failure to suspend disbelief,itwas a failure to get in the same universe with disbelief.Maybe someone will take the works of Dan Brown and do something similar tothis movie and do it right.
Oh I wish that Joel, Crowe and Tom were still in business.The repeating shots of food being prepared (slice the deer, slice thechicken, slice the fish, slice the vegetables) would make excellentMSTie fodderThis movie is disjointed, filled with ham fisted acting and was anabsolute waste of 90 minutes of my life. Thank the gods that I onlypaid $0.95 for it (The rental store was cleaning out their tapecollection).It ranks down there with the "Manos, Hands of Fate". *barf*In short, unless this howler of a movie has been MST'ied, avoid thisdog at all costs. If you get this tape as a gift, send it immediately to your localHazMat handling unit.
Usually, when a film pits religion against science, movie makers see toit that science wins. In this case, for a refreshing change, religioncomes out on top -thanks to Mr. Whetstone's beliefs and talent intelling a story that will be Greek to the geek, and others who have aproblem with God.The story is exceedingly complex, and if you blink an eye or go to thebathroom without hitting the pause button, you will be thoroughlyconfused afterwards.I've seen this twice, once because I knew nothing about it and, thesecond time because I wanted to make sure I knew something about it.Another thing I enjoyed is the fact that the religious people involvedwere not treated as dolts. Their intelligence was matched by theirdedication.The performers were a giant-sized help, particularly Fitzpatrick andMiss Alonso who was Miss Venezuela in '75. David Warner was excellentand, in some odd but successful casting so was singer Lou Rawls.To summarize: This is a complex, but refreshingly successful movie - nosex scenes, no bad words - proof that you can tell a story minus allthat stuff. The problem is, the public gets what it wants.This movie could be shown in most churches (not the fringies, whowouldn't understand it anyway) and could start quite a conversation.This has nothing to do with the movie, but I am still looking for anexplanation about Noah's Ark - and dinosaurs. Questions - alwaysquestions.
I'm a very open minded person, or I'd like to think I am. Anyway's Iwas watching this film and I was thinking, "Has anyone ever proved thatthere's a missing link...or, is there a missing link, because there ISNO missing link?" After all this time, and all this digging, and allthese scientific tests, and no-one finding any evidence that there is amissing link, AND, WHY are there still apes in the world, if they'vealready evolved...I'm guessing it's because there is no connection. SoI'm watching this film and I'm thinking, "God, has to be pretty unique,intelligent, etc., to create such an amazing thing such as humanbeings. I'm aligning myself to the theory of creation, as opposed toevolution, after watching this movie. Thanks Mr. Whetstone. God doesexist...and he knows all, sees all.I enjoyed the film, and the acting, and the overall production value.
Hmm...where to start? Well, start by reading shayhugi's review of themovie. When you are done reading it you get this sense of confusion,like you should have understood it, but you just didn't. So you aretempted to read it again to see what you must have missed, however, youdon't, because you come to your senses and don't want to waste yourtime. That's exactly the feeling you'll get while watching this movie.Try chugging a beer each time someone in the movie stiffly says"keyless encryption," and you'll feel much better. The acting is sopoor the script reaches the level of self-parody, which is tough to doby mistake. However, writer/director/exec. producer Hank Whetstone hasno problem. (See his other credits...oh, umm, there are none. This willremain his greatest achievement.) Yes, the cover has Apachehelicopters, although none appear in the movie. Yes, ending the moviein the Bahamas was just an excuse to take the crew on vacation. Yes,when a plane gets blown up by a rocket, the entire sequence takes placeoff camera, saving the FX dept their whole budget. But it's the scriptthat brings the real laughs. If I was running from someone w/a gun,would I run to an empty beach? What on earth went on with that beachscene? All of a sudden there are two-discs? Am I missing something?Ahh, someone just said "keyless encryption." Another cold one downed. Iwas tempted to rewind it, but came to my senses.Upon reading some of the newer high praise for this movie, it haverecognized that: A. Almost all were written in the first few months of2005, many in March. B. Almost all have overseas cities listed. C.Almost all of the glowing reviews look they were written by dweebs onshrooms.From this I can only gather either that: 1. This movie hasauthentically reached cult-status for its poor quality. Or 2. A bunchof nerds got together and watched the movie on the TV in the back ofone of their mom's garage, and the one girl invited there who was nothalf good looking but the rest wanted to make out with in the back oftheir '97 Neon anyway said something remotely positive about the movieand they wanted to impress her with incoherent dribble posted online.We can only be so lucky as to read their endless wretched blogs. But noamount of intercontinental praise will improve this waste of film.
I watched this movie only because it had good ranking (7 points).This movie should be rated as 4 (four) only ...maybe 5. I was expectingsomething more.The story indeed was quite good, even intriguing or mystique, almostlike in "The Net" or late episodes of Lost.But I can not say good word about acting.The dialogs were very unnatural like in "War of the Worlds 2: The NextWave" (which I watched only because of "War of the Worlds").Actors were rather plastic - comparable to "Terminal Invasion" or"Alien Apocalypse" There was lots of situations where you just can fellthe acting does not fit to situation, there is not much emotions inactors.Also lack of any technical/professional consultancy in the movie isjust offensive, it's first movie with so low detail I've seen in longtime.The movie is switching context quite fast, actors appear withoutintroduction, scenery changes also fast without any information aboutnew place or actors.And as last, sometimes the movie was looking almost like something wascut off, i was going backwards few times just to check if i did misssomething.
A follower of Da Vinci fallout movies, I rented this garbage just to see what kind of nuts make films thinking they have insight into mystism. The first clue it is a box office flop is the cast.The entire Whettone family got together to make this conspiracy movie. Nothing like a mom and pops movie studio to wet our imagination. The opening speech by the professor was not bad. After that the movie goes down hill with inconsistencies piling up until one has no idea what is supposed to be going on. A wife cheater is the hero of this movie and we are supposed to think he is in pain when his family gets killed in a plane crash. He has in his possession a computer disc which contains a keyless cryptogram everyone wants because it can predict the future. Of course Moses is the author of the code and all you have to do is believe in god and fight evil and you will live forever. Where have I heard this before? In the end he ends with this beautiful and sexy Israeli woman and they sail off into the sunset.(sniff)
I've seen a lot of science fiction movies because i love scientifictheory and I work in a genetic laboratory here in southern California.Obviously there were several subplots going on that appeared to besharing the philosophy and theory of God, which I believe in. I maywork in the science sector of the medical industry but I still go to myCatholic church in which I was raised and received my first communionand confirmation name.The element that really resonated with me in this story was the meldingof creationism and intelligent design. it thoroughly tossed the twopossibilities together and made them much more than coincidentally workin concert.I enjoyed viewing the back drop in the Bahamian Islands where I havevisited several times during my college education at the University ofMiami. Nice job.
Very disappointed with editing,accuracy of technology and continuity offilm.Premise was good but somewhere along the line the story turnedinto a love story and main plot fell apart. It's a shame that the storywent away.The acting was fair to poor. Marie Conchita Alonzo as aMassad agent with a Spanish accent is ridiculous.What's with thecutting of fish,meat,conch and coffee making.Have big problems withscientific facts which are inaccurate. When making a scientific movieat least get a consultant who can correct the errors in the script.Howdid one disc turn into two,was one hidden in the cave and what happenedto the existence of God.
I've seen a thousand drama/action films. But this one had something noother drama-action movie has...a great actor. Jim Fitzpatrick is THEbest actor I have ever seen in an drama/action movie. Better than SlyStallone, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Snipes and definitely Arnold. Whycan't more great actors take rolls in action films? I would hope thateven movie stars of Jim Fitzpatrick's quality would WANT to act in agreat action film sometime. I would put Fitzpatrick on the same calibreas a Gregory Peck. Or a Jimmy Stewart calibre. The story was somewhatconvoluted, but that never seemed to affect the lead actor. He was sobelievable, in such an unbelievable story line that he made us considerthe possibilities of the plot. On a scale of 1 to 10, we give thisactor, Fitzpatrick, a 10!
Anybody with a half of a brain can see what the writer/directorWhetstone was creating when he made this movie. It is testament to hisbeliefs in GOD, and in the human spirit and it's ability to find it'sway home (Heaven). When all is said and done, when our time here onearth comes to an end, where will you go? I BELIEVE, withouthesitation, that I will enter the kingdom of heaven, and be with myLord and Saviour for ALL eternity. For the life of me, I don'tunderstand why so people want to have a movie do more than it sets outto do. I loved the basic style of film-making here. The actors werefantastic, I love Maria Conchita, and the scenery was breathtaking. Ipulled-up the location on the internet and wow, Hopetown, is abeautiful place. I want to go to the lighthouse someday where Maria andthe male lead (James Fitzpatrick) went to send their message, to therest of the world. GOD bless you for continuing to support the rest ofus Christians, with good, wholesome films.
Do you have the slightest idea where we came from, where we are headed,and why? The writer/director Whetstone poses and interesting dilemmawhen it comes to proving his theory. Yet, he makes the story compellingenough to ponder the possibilities. The stars (Jim Fitzpatrick, MariaConchita Alonso, David Warner) are perfectly cast. The writing isstraight forward and pulls no punches when it comes to including thebackdrop of Whetstone's Christianity. His religious beliefs are upfrontand obvious, and I don't have a problem with that. I think that whenpeople stick to one theory of life, and don't listen to other'sopinions, they have stopped the educational process. You can never stoplearning...never stop growing. I feel that this film is as strong asany I've seen in a long time.
I came to this movie with an open mind, ready for some entertainment...I was wrong. On every turn, this flick was getting sillier and sillierand frankly, I was probably going to cut it short if it wasn't for mycuriosity to see if it actually ends on a smart note. Well it doesn't.The actors were very, very bad, dialog was flat, storyline was jumpingfrom one thing to the other with quotations that sometimes gave outwhat was to happen, and there was really nothing interesting to engageyour mind - no showing the actual code they talk about so much, noaction, no good fighting, no special effects... But the plot holes wereimpressive... Don't waste your time, skip this one and move on.
Keyless encryption? Is it possible? Is it like every other movie, thatat one time or another, was considered science fiction and then cameinto reality. Reality is a very poignant word, when it comes to films,because I feel, that if you can foresee something, or think about a newidea, then it is reachable. Or it is creatable. Otherwise how in theworld would we come-up with the idea. Being a film student, I gravitateto films such as this one (The Code Conspiracy) because it challengesmy crafts choices. Instead of making another plain and simplisticstory, I like to make sure that the audience members consider mytheories. The actors were all very good. I like the male lead (JimFitzpatrick). He was interesting and played the moments verybelievably. I rate this movie a ten.
The idea was not so bad...but the script was. Too much theories, too muchdialogues for nothing. And when i say nothing i perfectly describe the endof the film. NOTHING. An hour and a half of runing away, from Florida toBahamas, to end on a "I hope this will save our world" on a magnificentocean sunset. The hole film is about a stupid disk on wich an old man sayshe found the key to predict the futur and wich is also the proof that godexists. Come on... And what is that key and How does it work? Is it reallyon the disk? All questions left without answers.All that with a really bad photography, bad acting and no sens scenes thatwould be best put in the "Deleted scenes".I do not recommend this film.
It is no big budget blockbuster but better than some. I have seen better and some worse. The best part were all the written words by historic figures.
I won't completely dissect this movie. It isn't worth the time, and youcan get basic plot details from other reviews. Suffice to say it'sexceedingly stupid. I gave it two stars largely because at times it'sshot well. Some scenes look better than a movie with this budget andthis much aggressive incompetence behind it should. I'll just commenton a couple of things beyond that.The Code Conspiracy uses a lot of technical jargon, mostly in the formof cryptographic and technological talk, to try and lend some weight toits (weightless) religious message. Like pretty much everything else inthe movie, it fails to do this and succeeds only in annoying and boringthe audience.Vast, brainless sections of this movie make no sense whatsoever.There's no reasonable explanation for what happens late in the movie onthe beach. What goes on as people are getting on the plane, and why itdoes, are muddled at best. I get the sense that huge portions of thefilm that would have helped things to make sense were excised. But therest of the movie is so badly paced--filled to overflow with pointlessscenes and long, lingering shots we don't need--that it's hard to buythat as an excuse.Pacing is the movie's worst failure. Any stupid flick, even apretentious one, is more forgivable when it's short. I've seen hundredsand hundreds of awful movies, and I'm not exaggerating when I say thatprobably 90-95% of them clock in within ten minutes of the ninetyminute mark. How on earth this movie thought it could get away with ahundred and ten mind-numbing minutes is a mystery more compelling thanany Bible Code.This movie's pretty good for laughs, though. MST3K fans may recognizeDavid Warner from Quest of the Delta Knights. Again, though, it's pacedvery slowly. There will be some boring spots, but keep in mind therewill be something completely ridiculous just around the bend. Iespecially love the awful, awful songs.Lastly, I want you to consider all the positive user comments thismovie has received here. All of them were posted in the first half of2005, and almost every one of them--no matter what the country oforigin (and there are lots of those)--misuses commas in the exact samebizarre way. Every single one of them also either has commented on noother movies, or has commented only on other movies that starred JimFitzpatrick. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that's not acoincidence. Thirteen reviews. Bogus. Every other review besides those?Resoundingly negative. The score this movie has is clearly equallybogus. Or maybe it's... dun Dun DUN! A conspiracy!
This review is from: The Code Conspiracy (DVD) I received this DVD before the date promised. Received in good condition. This was an ok movie so I only gave it three stars. Was disappointed in this movie.
The Computer age has arrived. There are complex discoveries unveileddaily. Hence this recent film supporting theories of all sides. "TheCode Conspiracy" is the hardest kind of movie to review-but it's alsothe most enjoyable kind of movie to watch...due to the depth of it'sconclusions. It's been months since I've viewed this film, yet it stayswith me. Before writing my slant, I wanted to let its theories,content, and characters sink into my head. The film was based on anidea of ultimate knowledge. I could spend pages discussing thetechniques of Whetston's intentions and decisions, but I will not. JimFitzpatrick and Maria Conchita Alonso are two of the greatest actorsAmerican cinema has to offer; it's pure pleasure watching theircharacters clash, meld and roll. The sexual tension was more thansufficient for the story to play out.
You may like the movie or not, it's an obvious matter of taste andindividual sensibility. Better said, you may like so much the messageconveyed that you give it a ten. I gave this movie a five. In myopinion, to give a ten, cinema art qualities should be taken intoaccount, like camera work, or robustness of plot, which allows forellipses, or smartness of the screenplay. All this is missing in thismovie. If a character runs for his life let him run till the vieweralso is breathing heavily. The message itself is vague, no technicaldetails (in such a technological subject) to give it substance. Ahorror film may have a ten if it is perfectly done, and possiblyteaches the viewer a better understanding of the human behavior. Idealsand spirituality are harder to convey. Somebody did it, a good jobindeed, with very plain examples.
