Well written and fun, David Allen Rigsby presents a theory of history/mythology that starts from the Bible and includes everything but the kitchen sink. We have alien Grays, evil Freemasons, mechanical Cherubic Transformer robot Spaceships, the death of Anne Frank, the Pyramids and the Sphinx, the Flood, giants playing with dinosaurs, angel twins, Adam and Eve with no navels, Viking myth, the Fifth Planet's destruction, Egyptian obilisk-shaped ICBMs,the birth of the Swastika, God and His soul in a fascinating 2-way consultation, Easter Islands's statues, WWII, the Four Rivers of Eden and the breakup of Pangeia, the destruction of Atlantis and the origin of hurricanes. All this is cleverly woven into a Christian science fiction/space opera that make Velikovsky's cosmology look dull and Scientology's alien-origin myth look like a sophmore student essay.
The history and mythology of *Revelations* is dubious at best - clearly gleaned from popular culture and tabloid-style "non fiction" books - but it's just so much FUN that I couldn't help being charmed, by everything from its mundane view of Angelic life to its ingenious inclusion of every current New Age trend except Feng Shui. Structurally, the script has problems (lack of focus on characters, pointless scenes, some pacing flaws) but it has a good visual sense and would make a highly entertaining fantasy film.
