Product Description

Last in the series of made-for-television Bible features, starring Richard Harris as St John, the last surviving apostle of Christ. In the time of the Roman Emperor Domitian, Christians are ruthlessly persecuted throughout the Roman empire. As a witness to these persecutions, John is divinely inspired to write a series of revelations about the Second Coming of Christ and Judgement Day, and his continued survival makes him a figurehead of resistance and gives spiritual courage to the persecuted Christians.

A worthy film that feels similar to Biblical and/or Roman-era films made in the '50s but without the spectacle and pomp of great Hollywood studios, APOCALYPSIS really is a worthwhile film centred on the exiled apostle John played by the late Richard Harris.

Struggling to give answers to the suffering and plight of God's people, and that God is present in their sufferings, the apostle begins to experience intense visions from the Lord, both of the past and the future. It has some great sequences showing heaven and the Lord of Glory, using symbolic language as seen in the Book of Revelation. Recommended.

This was one of Richard Harris' last roles before he died, and while it might not match his best or more popular work, it is a surprisingly strong turn in a difficult role.

In fact, the whole idea of this movie could be described as `difficult'. How on earth do you produce a piece of entertainment which effectively shows the events of the Book of Revelation? Surely it is unfilmable. Well, the filmmakers have taken a very sensible approach and concentrated on the circumstances round the writing of the book, and in particular, its assumed author, John the Apostle. Really this movie is about him and the period during which the visions came to him. As such, we are necessarily left with a piece of fiction, since the details we know from history are sketchy - all that is actually known is that someone known as John, assumed by most to be the Apostle John, was banished to the island of Patmos where he received a series of revelations which he recorded as letters to the churches, and were later compiled as the Book of Revelations.

The plot then focuses on the history of the time, and the net closing in on John, the last remaining Apostle. The net closes in on two fronts... firstly, the church in Ephesus sends Irene, a beautiful young Christian, to find out where John is, because they feel that they need to have him in person to save them. In an interesting theme, the churches lack of faith in the letters without seeing the man in person echoes the Apostle's lack of faith unless they saw Christ resurrected in person. Meantime, the Romans have sent a spy to infiltrate the Christian prisoners in the mine on Patmos, flush John out and identify him in order that he be executed.

Apocalypses

The depiction of John's visions on the Isle of Patmos are quite amazing with viual and sound effects that bring scripture to life.
I have not seen any film like it and shared it with others who were moved by this film.
It is quite emotional and certainly leaves one pondering the scriptures.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing version of such a great book! 30 Oct 2007
I was looking forward to watching this with my 20 year-old son, as we both find the book of Revelation particularly inspiring, and hoped this film would convey and maybe clarify the complex drama of the original - but were very much disappointed, and even bored, by the vast majority of this long film which concentrated more on the lives of a semi-fictional group of persecuted early Christians than on the actual revelation which John received. I found the scene where the Christian prisoners were suddenly unchained and released because of the death of the tyrant Domitian particularly unconvincing!

The actual dramatisation of John's visions made up (I would guess) less than a quarter of the film's length, and was very disconnected and hard to follow, especially for anyone who did not know the book of Revelation. The final scenes of Heaven were beautiful enough, but there was an almost total omission of the real drama preceding the closing chapters - nothing about the overthrow of Satan (which surely could have made great cinema!) or fall of Babylon.

To summarise, I would not recommend this film to either a committed Christian, or to anyone who is hoping for an inspiring film version of a book which has such vast potential for cinema!
