Viewed on Pure|Flix Entertainment DVD

David A. R. White stars as police detective David Ramsey. The story starts with David and his partner of five years, Larry (Lonnie Colón) rescuing a singing star, Lindsey (Jessica Hope) from the murderous clutches of an abductor.

In gratitude for saving his girlfriend Lindsey and at her insistence music mogul and suspected criminal Ethan (Sean Sedwick) invites David and Larry and their wives, girlfriends, dogs and so on to join him and Lindsey on a cruise in the Sea of Cortez.

On this perplexing cruise, David experiences several of what he calls "dreams" about the future of just hours ahead. In his "dreams", David's wife, Lori (Andrea Logan White) and Larry and his wife, Suzette (Anise Fuller) vanish.

The especially odd matter about the "dreams" is that they repeat. Each day David experiences the same disappearances of his wife and his friends. Some of the details involved in each episode of the dreams change but in each of them David's wife and friends vanish. Are the dreams simple nightmares or are they acts of God to deliver a message to David?

In this clever twist of the story of the Rapture it may be that God is making David relive the day until David gets it right -- until David gets the Message. It is not until David finally gets the Message that the dreams stop. I wonder how many of us need God to give us multiple deliveries of His Message until we get it right?

A possible contradiction with God's Word might be the matter of David learning the day and hour of the Rapture. Each time his wife and friends disappear is at the same time in each dream episode. After a couple disappearing episodes David knows and anticipates the day and hour of the second coming of Jesus. [Mark 13:32]

I would like to tell you about the variety of delivery techniques and accurate depictions of the story of the Rapture, of several deliveries of the Truth but if I did so it would spoil this thoroughly enjoyable film. Part of the "enjoyability" of this film is that David A. R. White stars in it while I have seen him star in a number of other faith-based films. Another part is I have been blessed to have spoken with Byron Jones personally, one of the writers and producers.


I say "thoroughly enjoyable" but know that this film has some sharp teeth and fangs in the content. Following are brief discussions of the content per individual CAP investigation areas. As always the Findings section of this report is the best source for discovering the full accounting of the content of this film.

Wanton Violence/Crime (W) - Zero out of 100
In the segment in which David and Larry rescue Lindsey, there is a considerable amount of hard violence: felony gunfire to kill; killing by police action; firearm to the head; hostage. Also, aboard the yacht is some hard violence: accidental shotgun killing with gore; use of firearms to control; physical assault.

While one might expect the portrayals to be true to real life in a situation as portrayed in this film, but violence has its influence whether real or fantasy. That influence is not good. God warns in Prov. 16:29 that violence can be "catching"; that violence can lead one into a "way that is not good." Man has also picked upon God's wisdom about the influence of violence by four professional public health agencies jointly publishing their findings that warn of the consequences of viewing violence in and as entertainment; that entertainment violence "may lead to real life violence" and can "lead to emotional desensitization towards violence in real life."

Impudence/Hate (I) - 84 out of 100
David and Lisa suffer a marital argument about David giving so much to police work. [Rom. 12:18] David sports a dagger tattoo and one of the bad guys has a facial piercing on his mouth. [Lev. 19:28] A lie tops off the content applicable to this investigation area.

Sexual Immorality (S) - 92 out of 100
Lindsey's newest hit sings of being a sexual slave, a "sugar baby", for money and possessions. David is seen once exposing his below-navel skin. But that is all. [1 Ths. 4:7]

Drugs/Alcohol (D) - 100 out of 100
No use, consumption or possession of illegal drugs, no alcohol nor tobacco were found and no abuse of prescription drugs were found.

Offense to God (O) - 92 out of 100
As an inherent property of the lead character, David's position as a role model spoke against God and the Faith a number of times ... until David got it right. While such talk may be necessary to anchor a theme or story, it is sinful to encourage defiance of God by speaking against the One who spent three days in Hell so you and I would not have to spend one moment there. [Gal. 6:7]

Murder/Suicide (M) - 76 out of 100
There are two murders, one by drowning and one by shotgun. Both are murders of David who re-appears after each time he is murdered, but they are murders nonetheless. The mechanisms are there.

  • Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
  • Prov. 16:29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good. [The issue is the violence, the 'way that is not good' no matter how "small" or "justified" the violence might seem, and its "leading" effect on the observer. "A violent man" can be any character of any age, any gender, human or not in the act of committing (demonstrating in the case of entertainment) violent behavior/action whether for good or evil OR the violent behaviors/actions themselves. Such exposure can and does embolden the viewer into aggression, especially youth. It took years for the American professional health community to finally affirm, probably without knowing it, that which God told us in 1 Cor. 15:33 below. See also Joint Statement on the Impact of Entertainment Violence on Children: Congressional Public Health Summit for more information. Further, God speaks darkly of violence 56 times in the Old and New Testament of the KJV.]
  • Rom. 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
  • Lev. 19:28 Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD. [A body piercing cannot be made unless there is cutting involved. And "dead" in "for the dead" is nephesh which includes "seat of the appetites", "seat of emotions and passions" and "activity of the will."]
  • 1 Ths. 4:7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
  • Gal. 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked [which includes His Word]: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    Selected Scriptures of Armour against the influence of the entertainment industry

  • Jer. 37:9 This is what the LORD says: Do not deceive yourselves, thinking, 'The Babylonians [the destroyers from within] will surely leave us.' They will not!
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men [when enough people continue to defend what is vile, embrace it, enjoy it, want it, submit to it.]
  • Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man [by his influence] spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 1 Cor. 15:33 Be not deceived: evil [kakov: of a bad nature, not such as it ought to be] communications corrupt good manners.
  • Rom. 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  • Jude 1:4 For there are certain men* crept in unawares [secretly slipped in among us], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation [whose condemnation was written about long ago], ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness [a license for immorality], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]
  • Matt. 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
  • Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Offend: skandalizo {skan-dal-id'-zo} - scandalize; to entice to sin; to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey; to cause to fall away.]
  • Ps. 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me [let no sin rule over me].
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  • 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. ["Evil" includes all things that are sinful.]


    As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model -- for the most complete assessment possible of this movie.

    There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.

    * CAP Equivalence to MPAA Rating Scale:
    Please note our new manner of indicating a film's Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rating in comparison with the CAP equivalence such as "PG-13 [R-13]." The first term is the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) rating. The second term [in brackets] indicates that which the film earned under the CAP analysis model. In the example, "PG-13 [R-13]" indicates the MPAA rated the film PG-13 but the film earned a CAP final score in the scoring range earned by R-rated movies in the comparative baseline database. Other comparative terms used might be "PG [13-PG]", "G [PG-G] or even 'PG-13 [PG]" as was the case for Alien vs Predator. I doubt there will ever be a "G [R]" used, but only time will tell. The CAP analysis model is Rock-solid. The MPAA is not.

    The current CAP to MPAA** nomenclature is:

    For G rated Films with
    G equivalence: G
    PG equivalence: PG-G
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-G
    R equivalence: R-G<
    For PG rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-PG
    PG equivalence: PG
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-PG
    R equivalence: R-PG
    For PG-13 rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-13
    PG equivalence: PG(13)
    PG-13 equivalence: PG-13
    R equivalence: R-13
    For R rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-R
    PG equivalence: PG-R
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-R
    R equivalence: R

    G equivalence: G-NR
