Six: The Mark Unleashed Reviews
Set with clumsy metaphors galore in the end times styled near future, the people of earth (mostly bad american actors) come under the heel of a sinister company/corporation who insert "6" shaped chips into people in order to do something (it's not entirely clear what). Being christian (other religions aren't mentioned) and rejecting the chip gets you guillotined for some reason also.
What ensues is an overly moralistic badly made propaganda film featuring stilted arguments between skeptical characters and nice righteous ones whereby illogical arguments are used last to give the appearance of them being clever, deep and meaningful answers. This cheap trick of last argument is always right and wins, taken out of the Ally Macbeal script generator, is the tip of the shit icerberg though, trust me.
All major characters are chased by the corporation (which seems to employ the same 4 creepy looking people) at some point, and remember; if a woman is wearing tight trousers you should definitley NOT trust her. Post Garden of Eden misogyny aside, the film's production values are also utter toss. It's like watching an episode of Xena Warrior Princess without the witty and subtle dialogue. Indeed, after watching "6: the Mark Unleashed" a sapphic subtext ridden conversation between Xena and Gabrielle begins to seem like Shakespeare's finest verse.
The major characters are eventually hunted down amidst a plot that has more holes in it than a machine gunned sheep and essentially face a choice between submitting or converting to Christianity and dying. The two surviving sceptics make opposite choices, one choosing the chip and the other the guillotine. The newly converted character is last seen grinning like an idiot and proclaiming the glory of god before the executioner and the script writer does us a favour and chops his fat head off (which, like the torture they're too cheap or squeamish or both to show). The other is seen delivering an aftermath soliloquay which concludes dramatically that he made the wrong choice before the inevitable sanctimonious ending with a quote from Jesus bringing this shitfest to an end.
A film then that is so apocalyptically bad it makes an episode of "Shameless" seem good and Episode II of Star Wars seem well acted, and whilst this film attempts to make the case for god it makes one merely utter the word alot and convinces one that there cannot be a god. He wouldn't allow this crap to go on.
im not dissin christian movies, but this is one of the only ones tht have actually opened my eyes to the horror of what is around us
im glad that this movie was made
