The Omega Code (1999)

How bad is it? It's the worst end-of-the-world movie I can think of.
Should you see it? Not unless you're a follower of the financial backers of the film.

This has Michael York and Catherine Oxenberg, so there's better actors than usual for films on this blog. It's about a numerical code in the Bible and good guys battling bad guys in deciphering it before the end of the world. The Second Coming is completely underwhelming, by the way. Based very very loosely on the Book of Revelation, this was made to capitalize on the end of the millennium interest in religious fanaticism. It was financed by some religious leaders and shown on a religious cable TV network. This has its fans, though I don't know why.
