(CCC, VV, Pa, MM) Pre-tribulation, premillennial dispensationalist Christian worldview; no obscenities or profanities but little boy wets his pants; action violence & threat of violence including fist fights, fist goes through window, man jumps through window to his death, several shootings, house blows up, & threat of guillotine, but all done in a very restrained fashion; no sex; no alcohol; and, some New Age artifacts, Satan is a powerful figure & some arguable theological points.

Summary:

Christian brothers Peter and Paul Lalonde take their filmmaking seriously. TRIBULATION is the third in a series of theatrical releases they have created.

Review:

Christian brothers Peter and Paul Lalonde take their filmmaking seriously. Surely and carefully, they have moved from making high-quality videos for the Christian market to making better and better feature films. They have refused to settle for good and have decided to make excellence and not only have worked on the scripting but also the direction of their movies. TRIBULATION is the third in a series of theatrical releases. Starring Gary Busey and Margot Kidder, it tells the familiar story of the last seven years of life on earth with suspense and excitement.

Gary Busey plays Tom Canboro, a police detective who enjoys a full life but is slightly annoyed at his sister Eileen (Margot Kidder) for harping on the Gospel. Tom’s brother in law, Jason Quincy (Howie Mandel), is into Ouji boards and perceives in his own confused fashion that something is not right with the world. What is not right is that self-proclaimed messiah Franco Macalousso (Nick Mancuso) is trying to take over the world. Meanwhile, Helen Hannah (Leigh Lewis) and her band of Christian believers are working to expose this self-proclaimed Messiah as the devil himself.

Tom gets into a car accident and spends months in a coma missing the Secret Rapture of Christian believers. He wakes up to find a world controlled by this self-proclaimed messiah. As he deals with the problem of putting his own life together, he has to deal with a world gone wrong. In doing so, he discovers the truth.

Whatever your eschatology, it is a great joy to watch the craftsmanship and entertainment quality of Peter and Paul Lalonde’s productions. My teenagers wanted to watch it twice. Lately, of course, there have been several films on the same theme, including the previous Peter and Paul Lalonde movies APOCALYPSE (1998) and REVELATION (1999). However, each one of them has its merits, and this one gets closer to Hollywood production quality than the previous attempts. Its only possible objectionable content is some action violence and some mild arguable theological points.

If TRIBULATION reaches your local theater, go and see it. If not, get it on video and show it to your unbelieving friends. TRIBULATION is a powerful witness and a strong altar call.
