Storyline

After God loses faith in humanity, the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) is the only one standing between mankind and the apocalypse. This time using angels as the act of Biblical judgment, God's wrath descends on Earth to exterminate the world's population. In a desperate, last-chance gambit, Michael leads a group of strangers to a small, New Mexico diner to protect a young waitress who may be pregnant with Christ in his second coming.

Trivia

2010 Guide Analysis: "Having played two priests and a monk in recent years, Paul Bettany as an angel doesn't seem like much of a stretch. The film on the other hand looks like pure hokum, essentially yet another exposition heavy warrior angel take on Christian mythology seen before in the likes of "The Prophecy," "Gabriel," "Fallen," and one of the most consistent series on TV lately "Supernatural".

Yet there's stuff that could work. The small group trapped in a doomsday scenario is usually effective, the angel effects and wings do look good, and the cast is pretty decent considering the material. Many of the cast claimed to have signed on because of writer/director Scott Stewart's script focusing more on building complex characters than justifying its otherworldly premise. We'll know either way in a few weeks."
