SUMMARY / COMMENTARY:
*The Omega Code* (PG-13) -- Much violence but NO sex and NO foul language.
WOW! I am impressed. Finally a movie with NO sex and NO profane language! NONE! Though some poetic license was taken just as was taken by Cecil B. DeMille in *The Ten Commandments*, this movie was as true to the Book of Revelation of the Holy Bible as I have seen. For example, I saw nothing of the Rapture, the mark of the beast, and a number of other Truths of Revelation. However, this movie only had two hours and fifteen minutes to tell the story.
If you go to see *The Omega Code* watch for some things from Revelation: the beast [Rev 13:1]; its fatal head wound from which it is resurrected [Rev 13:3]; the two prophets (Moses and Elijah) and what they are wearing [Rev 11:3], being killed [Rev 11:7], then resurrected [Rev 11:11]; the waters turning into blood [Rev 11:6]; the beast with seven heads (leaders) and ten horns and crowns (nations) [Rev 13:1]. Note also the portrayal of the multitudes bowing to the beast and how even husband and wives become divided because of the promises of the beast.
A world famous motivational speaker named Dr. Gillian Lane (Casper Van Dien) is somehow thrust into the plot, first as a lieutenant to the beast then as one of its generals. Later still, Lane becomes a central character to fight the beast. How this character portrays a presence in the Book of Revelation I do not know. Nor do I know whether Lane is supposed to represent a Bible character. The quintessential bad guy, Stone Alexander (Michael York) unites 10 European nations into the new world order with a one world currency, which later dwindle to seven, in a campaign for world peace and unity (under Alexander's rule, of course).
*The Omega Code* is built upon a code being hidden within the Bible. I do not know and cannot comment on whether there is a code written into the original text of the Bible. God is certainly capable of imparting special code to the men He had write the Bible, but whether He did I cannot say.
This analysis (Findings and Scoring) is completely objective. Though the Word of God says that the beast will indeed suffer a mortal (fatal) wound to the head, such graphic display of murder and injury to children may be influential in a bad way. There are one graphic death by tragedy and six murders (including that of the beast) in this movie -- three of the dead people later get up. Though these are portrayals of three resurrections under Holy authority (the two prophets and the beast), exposing children to such nonempirical reality may be difficult for them.
There is much gunfire in attempts to murder, four cold-blooded point-blank murders and a killing by supernatural power, and lots of the use of firearms to control and intimidate. Also, while the grabbing by one of the actors of a little girl's chest during an abduction scene was not likely intentional, it might be a good idea to explain to your daughters who see this that it is not okay for people to touch them there (Ref: Don't Touch Me There!!!).
[Rev. 22:21] The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
