This is a movie by Cloud Ten Pictures. They specialize in trying to provide good Christian entertainment. The Christian community felt they were condemning Hollywood, but provided no alternative.

This movie stars Gary Busey, Howie Mandell, and Margot Kidder. It is about a cop who is a "non-believer", who wakes up during the Tribulation. It has major special effects, and looks like a "normal film".

I think this is a great idea. I heard about it while watching some local programming. They had an informercial for it. What I didn't like was they had all these people reviewing it. They felt it was a good thing to show "the ones who weren't saved" to show them "the way". This is another example of people who can't seperate reality from entertainment. I am sure this is a fine film, and I even am considering buying it, to see. I don't think this, or anything else should be used to SCARE people into religion. I guess my opinions using religion as a threat should be saved for another node.

Trib`u*la"tion (?), n. [OE. tribulacium, F. tribulation, L. tribulatio, from tribulare to press, afflict, fr. tribulum a thrashing sledge, akin to terere, tritum, to rub. See Trite.]

That which occasions distress, trouble, or vexation; severe affliction.

When tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. Matt. xiii. 21.
