    The actors take a back seat to computer-generated demonic images and apocalyptic special effects.

    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    An overblown, overspectacular, oversold movie without an original idea in its head.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Frequently silly, yet eminently more watchable than such leaden Schwarzenegger efforts as ''Eraser.''

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

not for kids

Tired dud of an over-the top violent action movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is in the upper ranges of the R rating, with some gross-out violence, a sexual threesome featuring a mother and daughter, and suicide portrayed as an heroic act.

  • Families can talk about some of the issues raised in this movie, including the theme of faith against force. They can also talk about whether it is right to sacrifice one innocent life to save millions, and the question of free will (one character sells his soul to the devil to stay alive and then struggles to do what he knows is right).
