Personally, after watching it, I don’t understand what all the hype is about. As a movie, I thought it was pretty awful. It reminded me of an ABC After School Special on acid. The best part of the movie, for me anyway, were the visual effects. Otherwise, I really didn’t care for it at all. The thing that really torqued me off about the movie, though, was that the identities and credentials of the “experts” who were quoted throughout the movie weren’t revealed until the very end. One of the “experts” is J. Z. Knight, who claims to be channeling Ramtha, a 35,000 year old spirit-warrior who lived among the lizard people at Atlantis. Pretty much everyone associated with the movie, including the “experts” are all somehow affiliated with J. Z. Knight’s “Ramtha School of Enlightenment”, and one “expert” is actually a chiropractor.
It didn’t move me to do anything other than return the DVD to Netflix. Then again, what the bleep do I know!?
