Movie Info

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. By speaking with Evangelicals in their homes, at conferences, and even during a tour of the site in Israel where they believe Jesus Christ will return to Earth, the filmmakers intertwine Jewish and Christian Zionist perspectives to explore the unique alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel that could lay the groundwork for the battle of Armageddon. Interviewees include Connecticut evangelicals James and Laura Bagg, McAlester, OK-based Evangelicals Tony and Devonna Edwards, and Salem, OR-based doctor H. Wayne House, each of whom believe we are living in the end times, and that they will all be raptured into the heavens when Christ returns and humanity enters into a violent seven-year period known as "The Tribulation."

Critic Reviews for Waiting for Armageddon

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (9)

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.

By turns frightening, fascinating and eye-opening, this documentary offers much to rouse followers of various religious and political stripes.

Preaches to the (un)converted with a quiet, worried sanity that could have used more force. See it anyway, just to remind yourself how many people are actively wishing for the End of Days.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

This documentary about the evangelical belief in biblical prophecy is both overly ambitious and skimpy.

Top Critic

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.

Respectfully and without dramatization (the ideas are electric enough), the directors observe a cross section of articulate evangelicals and accompany a Christian group on a revealing trip to Israel.
