Six: The Mark Unleashed (DVD)
In the last days before Armageddon, a brutal dictator rules Earth. Using high-tech surveillance from satellites through a sophisticated chip implant, the Community Police Force infiltrates every facet of human existence, tracing each physical and digital footprint left behind. For humanity, freedom is just a fond memory and defiance means death. Two political prisoners (David White, Kevin Downes) meet a mysterious stranger (Stephen Baldwin) who holds the key to their escape and mankind’s survival. Unbeknownst to the prisoners, CPF agents broker a deal with an inmate (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) for his life in exchange for betraying Christian renegades. These three unlikely allies must escape the executioner’s blade, thwart a manhunt by elite CPF operatives (Amy Moon, Brad Heller) and join forces with the world’s most wanted fugitive: the leader of the resistance (Cosimo Michael). If they fail, humanity will be marked for death, the resistance will collapse and the enemy will have taken every last life.
The Dove Foundation
“This award-winning film has everything most lower budget films do not: very good acting, a great script, dynamic direction, and high production values. The visuals at the beginning are stunning as you see a reel of Adolph Hitler and words appearing on the screen which quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hitler, and Lenin. The film begins with Emerson's words: "Truth is beautiful true enough, but so are lies." Lenin's quote, "A lie told often enough becomes truth," is a predictor of things to come as the leader of the world, the Antichrist, spews forth a continual lie by way of computer chip implants to control thinking, in contrast to what he says is the mad ravings of the Christians, who forgive their assailants.
“Make no mistake about it: this movie is dark in spots and shows a man being tortured and Christians just before they lose their heads at a station of chopping blocks. But it is the heroic figures of Luke, a preacher, and Jerry, a convert, in addition to Elijah Cohen, who is wanted for converting many of the Antichrist's followers, that is compelling. This film has a contemporary feel to it and the dark storyline may cause fear for those under 12 years of age. It is a thought-provoking film and how many of those are around?”
