Filmmakers Kate Davis, David Heilbroner, and Franco Sacchi aim to clarify the abstruse relationship between Christian Zionists and Jews while encouraging dialogue between dissenting groups with this documentary examining the possibility that a substantial American voting block is attempting to create a self-fulfilling prophecy of international holy war.

Those refutations are little comfort against the manifest power of American entitlement and religious superiority fueling final-days fantasies, against which the film winds up being a sobering warning.
This documentary about the evangelical belief in biblical prophecy is both overly ambitious and skimpy.
Waiting for Armageddon (which has nothing to do with the 1998 Michael Bay movie) demonstrates that sometimes it's far more devastating to simply point the camera at your subjects and let them talk.

Seems to think it's a new revelation about the last days for the Rest of Us if the visions of Christian evangelicals come true, and how they influence Mideast policy.
Waiting For Armageddon lets a handful of the devout explain their worldview in greater detail, yet filmmakers Kate Davis, Franco Sacchi, and David Heilbroner don't go looking for the simple-minded or easily mockable.
The putative objectivity of Armageddon isn't quite politically savvy enough to strike its realpolitik target.
