Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

Movie Review: Jerusalem Countdown: Action-packed drama

This entry is part 13 of 17 in the series Reviews

Jerusalem Countdown from Pure FlixI don’t believe in coincidences. Yesterday, I was trying to catch a friend’s interview about the Chick-fil-a Leadercast on KPXQ-AM, a Phoenix Christian Radio Station and I thought I missed it. However, I caught the interview with actor/producer, David A. R. White of Pure Flix (based here in Scottsdale, AZ), talking about their latest release, Jerusalem Countdown. I’ve been wanting to catch a screening and it so happened that they were having one tonight at Living Streams Church in Central Phoenix.

It wasn’t a coincidence.

I truly believe that we are living in the end times. Any minute now, scenes like the one depicted in their DVD’s picture can happen. Iran, Russia, Syria, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Arab Spring – it’s all in the news and it’s all eerily similar to Bible prophecies.

Jerusalem Countdown stars David A. R. White as FBI agent, Shane Daugherty, who investigates “the 7 wonders” – 7 suitcase bombs that are smuggled into the U.S. and are being held in a suburban Chicago neighborhood across the street from a nosy neighbor played by Carey Scott (his wife is played by Christian singer Jaci Velasquez). For me, Carey Scott’s character steals the show when he gets caught snooping around the basement of the terrorists’ house and discovers the bombs.

Fav veteran actors Lee Majors and Stacey Keach had minor roles. I wish Majors’ would have been a bit longer. Keach plays the one Christian believer (besides Jaci Velasquez’s character) who tries to convince his daughter, FBI agent, Eve, (Anna Zielinski) that everything that’s happening is prophesied in the Bible.

It’s starts a little slow and some of the audio of the mysterious voice is hard to understand, but it quickly makes up for it with explosions, assassinations, chases and shoot outs.

You’ll have to watch the movie to see who gets left behind in the end. But it does leave potential for a “left behind” type sequel.

It does have a PG-13 rating for violence and war scenes, but it is a Christian movie with a good message. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. It’s worth watching.
