The Omega Code (1999)
Critic Consensus: Mysticism, overacting, and overall gimcrackery eventually weigh down the story.
In this spiritual thriller, an ancient prophecy is about to be fulfilled as a secret code brings the world to the edge of Apocalypse. Gillen Lane (Casper Van Dien) is a expert on theology and mythology who has gained international fame as a motivational speaker. Lane is approached by Stone Alexander (Michael York), the owner and founder of a major media empire, who has been made chairman of the European Union and needs someone to help spread the word about his goal of a world united behind a single vision of peace. Lane begins to realize that there's something sinister behind Alexander's veneer of charity and benevolence: a secret code was embedded in the original texts of the Torah that will allow the person who cracks it to unlock the secret powers of the Christian scriptures; if it falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the end of Man's Reign on Earth. After the death of his mother, Lane lost his faith in God and embraced a New Age philosophy, but now he must confront his lost faith as he tries to discover both the all-powerful secret of the Omega Code and his own true identity. The Omega Code also stars Van Dien's wife Catherine Oxenberg as Cassandra Barris, a reporter working for Alexander's network, and Michael Ironside as Dominic, Alexander's thuggish underling. The Omega Code was produced in association with the Trinity Broadcasting Network, America's largest Christian broadcasting outlet. … More

Critic Reviews for The Omega Code
After a promising start, Omega Code devolves into chase after chase, cliche after cliche, until you've finally forgotten just what it is that darn old code's supposed to do in the first place.
While The Omega Code is occasionally lacking in the techno-wizardry so common in similar films it makes up for it with a good plot.
Forgive them, Father, they know not what they do.
Gives 'Great Tribulation' new meaning.
Audience Reviews for The Omega Code
Preposterous and low budget rubbish. The plot is dreadful and never once is it in the least bit convincing. The acting is not awful, but it certainly isn?t good. Michael York comes off best. It?s all so phony. The special effects are poor and the direction is awful.
I recommend this one. A possible version of events which might precede Armaggedon. Amazing cast....Robert Ito & Michael York
It's a different view on the endtimes and how scripture is fullfilled. I don't like the idea of the Bible Code used in the movie, but the acting is good.
