Tom Canboro is a police detective with a Christian sister, Eileen, a brother, Calvin, a wife, Susan, and eccentric brother-in-law, Jason. One night, Jason seemingly goes insane and tries to kill Eileen, calling her a hater. Tom soon realises this may be a conspiracy going as far as devil worship, but as he speeds in his car to get help, he suddenly looses control and crashes. Waking up in a strange hospital, he finds years have passed and people all over the world are wearing the mark of 666 on their right hands, and all those who dont are being killed off. Franco Macalusso, the believer in world peace Jason was fond of, now controls the world, and is trying to bring the world together as it was at the tower of Babel. Meanwhile, the Haters or Christians are hiding out and airing TBN tapes on the air for people to realise the Messiah is really the Antichrist, but their leader, Helen Hannah, is arrested...

I saw this movie, and needless to say I was blown away. It is the kindof script that is so good that the mainstream studios will not goanywhere near it. The movie is just about the end of the world and theapocalypse, and the people making this movie really guessed pretty goodhow it is all going to turn out! I think someday during the apocalypse,people will find this movie, and they will realize that all of thesethings have actually come true! One of the best parts was the use ofgreat American actor, Gary Busey, who recently converted toChristianity, and believes that God prepared him his entire life forhis role in this movie. You can tell by watching this movie just what adevoted and serious Christian Gary Busey is, and I only can pray thatmore people in Hollywood and in America will stop being foolish, andwill find Jesus like Gary Busey did through this movie.
Once again, a TV ministry has tried to create a feature film based on the rise and fall of the Antichrist, as described in the Bible. Unlike the Omega Code 1+2 which followed fairly standard Hollywood rules for creating a pseudo-policical thriller, this film took an entirely different route, which creates a film that is painful to sit through.The film opens with several scenes involving prayer and heated family discussion about Bible scripture. While I do not have a problem with this, it is done with such a level of obsesive intensity it ends up becoming totally gooney, and would make all but the most hardcore evangelical Christian squirm from it all. During this discussion, Howie Mandell is in the middle of a truly goofy explantion of his theory of gestalt psychology concerning monkeys. The only reason why this was included was for the sake of a scene much later, to explain how the Antichrist became so popular so quickly.From this point on, the film quickly decends into a bonifide carbon copy of a two part episode of The Outer Limits (the modern color series). The same poor writing, low production quality as well as bad acting come through as a clone.The most laughable part was the Antichrist himself. The idea that the world would be seduced by someone who has all the qualities of a shady, swaggering, fast talking control-freak, who has the personality of a used car salesman, is beyond preposterous.While the film does have some redeeming inspirational messages for the viewer about Christianity, they are simply not worth your time.Warning, this film was produced in part by Jack Van Impe TV ministries. He is considered to be a Biblical prophecy conspiracy theorist of epic proportions. Footage of his show is included in this film as part of the plot.If you want an amusing Christian film about the end of the world, stick with Omega Code 1+2, a much better production overall.
Detective Tom Canboro (Gary Busey) is a skeptical atheistic man, who isvery close to his family. His sister Eileen (Matgot Kidder) and hiswife Suzie (Sherry Miller) are Christians, his brother seems to beChristian and his brother-in-law Jason (Howie Mandel) is agnostic andquite crazy. One night, Tom is called to investigate two similaroccurrences, both of them of domestic aggression and attempting tosuicide, being one of them committed by Jason, who becomes totallyinsane. Tom realizes that something weird and unexplainable ishappening, and he finds that the men of the leader Franco Macalousso(Nick Mancuso), who is indeed Lucifer, are threatening his family. Tomtries to go home to help his family, but a mysterious force controlshis car and it crashes on a truck. Many years later, Tom awakes fromhis coma in a hospital and realizes that most of the worldwidepopulation is now dominated by the Anti-Christ Franco Macalousso, whointends to destroy the Christians, and is marked with the number of thebeast 666 on one hand. Tom tries to find what happened to his familyand how to fight against Macalousso. "Tribulation" is a good movieabout the Apocalypse. I noted in IMDb that it is the third part of asequence of Christian films about the text of the Bible. The first oneof this movies I saw was "Judgement", the fourth part of this series;now I have just watched the third part, which is much better than"Judgement". "Tribulation" is a good movie and the story can beunderstood without watching the first two parts. I liked the analogymade by Tom in the beginning of the movie, when he compares a personwho speaks with aliens, with one who speaks with God. My vote is six.Title (Brazil): "ForÃ§as DiabÃ³licas" ("Evil Forces")
I really enjoyed this movie. Gary Busey's performance was excellent. This film really gave you something to think about with regards to the end times. Anyone who is a follower and believer in Jesus Christ will enjoy it and those who have not yet found Christ can benefit from it as well. My children watched the film with me and they enjoyed it too!
Make it a 3+!Intense dialogue--emotionally and theologically. The discussions are powerful, and should most useful for church groups, Bible studies, and other spiritually oriented audiences. These characters are passionate and earnest--so much so, that viewers will either become engrossed or wearied, depending on their openness to the premise.One storyline idea that seems odd is that a virtual reality game piece would become the primary means of garnering the public's allegiance to a government and its leader. In a genre that is part science fiction, the means is possible. However, it seemed strange that people were making a decision of great import by choosing to participate in what seemed to be a high tech video game.Nevertheless, the bottom line is that this is an intriguing, dramatic story well worth viewing.
Revelation is the best of the series to date (the jury is out until I see Judgement), but Tribulation was very good. What may throw people off is that it starts in the time that Apocalypse did, but when Gary Busey wakes up, it's after the Rapture has occured and after Thorold Stone from Revelation has been executed. Plus, the Tower of Babel prophecy will get all the Bible scholars in debate mode, not to mention the whole vitual image of the Beast motif. What we all need to keep in mind is this a movie, a fictional plot based on a Biblical prophecy which has yet to come to pass. The only way to find out what will happen after the Rapture (for those who don't know, this is an event in the Bible where Jesus Christ will come back for all those who accepted Him as their Lord and Savior, at which time they will literally vanish from this earth to live forever in Heaven with Jesus. This will occur before the Antichrist - a man possessed by Satan - will rise up as the political, financial, and spiritual ruler over the entire earth and claim that he is God.) is if you're still here when it happens. I assure you, that is something you don't want! That is the whole point of the series: to encourage people to come to Jesus Christ for salvation so that they won't have to experience the worst time period the world will ever know. I suggest getting the whole series, because, like the Star Wars trilogy, each movie feeds off the one before it. One might get confused about some holes in the plot if they don't see it in order. But all in all, Tribulation is a must-see.
A fantastic sequel in this series. Highly recommended, not only for the topic matter, but a great tool to witness to others about the Book of Revelation, and what is soon to be coming to the Earth. - Tribulation. Only Jesus Christ can deliver us from the wrath to come. Highly recommended.
This was an exciting movie, with good acting and good filming and goodoverall quality. Our whole (large) family liked it very much! It has a goodmessage, and at the same time it's hard to stop watching because it'sexciting. It's a scary thing to think of being in the tribulation, andhopefully God will use this movie to lead people to Himself.
Ive watched this movie over and over and each time I watch it I find something I missed the other times I watched it. It can really make you think on what is to come and how we may reacted to such things. If you have ever picked up the bible and read the parts dealt with in this movie then you can get an idea, but you have to have an open mind inorder to grasp what this movie is getting at in my opinion.
I think Revelation is the best movie in the series, but this one is definitely worth watching.
This third film of the Apocalypse series begins before the Rapture (before "Apocalpyse") and ends after the receiving of the mark (after "Revelation"). Gary Busey plays a plain-clothes police officer who goes into a coma before the Rapture and awakens to a world vastly different. His search for answers about what has happened to the world parallels his search for spiritual answers.In the previous films of this series, the characters tried to understand the Rapture through theories of rationalism and alien intervention. This film concerns more of psychic powers, crystals, and cabals. Unlike the others, here these are treated as if these things do exist. The key issue for the heroes deals more with choice than with faith.This is a good movie, and I would recommend watching this.
Simply one of the worst films ever produced since Man first shouldered a camera.A fascinating topic rendered ridiculous by a dreadful script, dreadful directing and perfectly awful performances from a shopworn collection of actors.Instead of intriguing me -- the non-evangelical person with a reasonably open mind -- "Tribulation" made me wonder if its really humanly possible that conservative Christians believe this simplistic hokum.
Spoiler This film is worth watching. Some notable actors, but has beens,they do an A job. Does way better than most made for video shows, actualthe only non HBO made for video show that I found well done consideringthebudget. Left Behind is not close in quality too this series, and I foundthe video strong threw out. They could of cut a bit out of the middle,andhow could the house be the same after all those years. Other than thatok,this video is like an interesting TV show, I'll rent 3 and see how thiscontinues. 6/10
This is an excellent movie in the apocalypse series.This one is Part IIIThe movie is a bit conusing in the first 15-25 minutes or so because they portray events which took place before even the events of thr first movie took place.The first 5 minutes of this movie take place some 30 years before the first movie starts and the nest 15-20 minutes take place some 3 months before the first movie.This may not be apparent the first time you view the film. It wasn't for me, but it may be for others.This film portrays the Tribulation which takes place after the Rapture.A man who slipped into a coma before the Rapture and wakes up several months later, some good time after the Rapture has happened. He searches for family and loved ones and learns about what happened and that it was the doing of God himself and that the Antichrist is now in control of a one world government.They try to let more know about Jesus and save them from losing their souls to Satan.
This film is the definition of bad, anyone with a entry-level interestin film could tell you that and describe why. I'm not going to do that.As a Christian and a cinephile this film poses a dilemma for me. In thespecial features the filmmakers talk about how if the film reaches oneperson for Christ than it will all be worthwhile. For them, the"worthwhile" is all the work they put into it. For me, the "worthwhile"is how this film simply reinforces negative stereotypes of religiousart as pandering and anti-intellectual. And I can't help butskeptically state that a conversion caused by this disaster couldn'tpossibly be genuine and based on anything more than fear, and alsocouldn't possibly justify the film; from Van Impe's shamelessself-promotion to the apologetic problem of "opening your eyes andseeing the light." Watching this now, I was surprised to see someinteresting concepts hinted at early on: the world as a network theoryis a fascinating area, but it's given little treatment beyondmind-control here. It's not that if we can unite we can accomplishanything, but we already are united whether we know it or not. Instead,the "Christian" view of "in the world but not of it" trumps and ignoresany other interpretation. Also, endless amounts of literature have beendevoted to these end-times themes and apocalyptic characters that thereis no excuse for these cartoon-ish characters. They really should makeNietzsche and Dostoyevsky required reading in High School, or maybe inBible Schools.1 out of 5 - Poor
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.
Even if you are a really eager devotee of end-times movies and books, this is one clunker to be avoided! Don't let the impressive cast (Gary Busey, Howie Mandell, Margot Kidder) lead you astray! This is a low-budget, lame script, cliche-ridden rehash of the old evil-UN, rapture, one-world-government stuff from Channel 23.The minimal efforts to portray the future are only topped for awfulness by a hideously syrupy soundtrack.Nick Mancuso makes a great anti-Christ but I can't think of another good acting job or indeed any good thing about this turkey. "Left Behind" is a WAY better movie bet on the same subject!
This should've been a better movie. Unfortunately, some of the main characters were not at their best but great performances were given by Sherri Miller (Busey's wife) and Howie Mandel (who knew!). This movie doesn't really advance the series but just seems to be a few months ahead of where Revelation left off and deals with basically the same material except that it's happening to a new set of players on grander sets with better special effects. Overall, a little above average but still a notch below mainstream video fare-- hopefully this is just growing pains for the industry. I'd love to give 5 stars just for the fact that they've tackled this subject matter but I don't think these films are at that level...yet. -- Moza
This film has it all - drama,love,sadness. It continues the story told in "Revelation" only with some different characters. A man wakes up from a long-term coma to find the world has changed and not for the better! People have to worship a charismatic leader or die if they refuse! I was touched by the raw courage of the Christians, especially the beautiful Helen Hannah, who were willing to die for Christ rather than worship the Antichrist (played very convincingly by Nick Mancuso). The deep love between Tom Canboro and his wife, Suzie and Suzie's loyalty to her mentally ill brother are also heartwarming. The viewer gets to hear the Christian message more than in "Revelation" though not in a "preachy" way. This film is worth watching,whatever your beliefs, but should make non-believers think!
Maybe the mask and the healings are over the edge a bit, but the intensitywas the right level, the deception was well portrayed -- hey, like theysay"it could happen" just that way. Notice how people viewed non-markedpersons as dangerous. Why? Because they were the last vestige ofevidencethat the deception was 1) real, and 2) resistible.Enjoy.
