The Omega Code



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

SEX/NUDITY 0 - A few brief kisses.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man is shot (we see blood on the side of his head) and we later see him lying in a hospital bed with a bloody bandage around his head; also, about five other people are shot and killed (we see some blood on two victims' shirts). We see a "spirit" coming out of a man's back; his hand is covered with blood after he feels the back of his head. A man grabs a girl and threatens her with a gun, but he lets her go without harming her. We see men with guns kicking in doors and shooting into rooms. Several instances of threatening with guns; a few people are shot at but not hit. A man is punched in the stomach and face while being interrogated (he has a bloody mouth and a little blood on his face); he spits blood in his captor's face. A man is punched and thrown over a table, a man knocks another unconscious and a man wrings another's hand. A car chase with reckless driving; a few cars run into each other. A man rolls over the hood of a car that nearly hit him. A man dreams he is being chased by a truck and sees skulls floating around him. We learn a man killed his father and that a boy's mother was killed in a car accident. We see video clips of people rioting (we see some punches, shoving and shots fired into the air).Two building explode; we see a corpse with a bloody head wound in the rubble and a woman with a little dirt and blood on her face. We briefly see a bird picking at an animal carcass. We see a small pool of blood next to two corpses. We see papers with some blood stains.

PROFANITY 0 - None. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Biblical prophecies, good vs. evil, the end of the world, responsibility, faith.

MESSAGES - Faith will save you; it's easy to be fooled into following evil.

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
