Kingdom Come Review
Synopsis:A group of strangers who wake up in what appears to be an abandoned building, unable to remember how they got there, find themselves haunted by strange visions and are forced to face all the wrongs they have done in their lives.
Kingdom Come (2014) is an American horror movie that failed. Director and co-writer Greg A. Sager (The Devil in Me (2012), Willful Entrapment (2009), Small Avalanches (2006)) failed at executing this movie. The movie is a cliche, but it had potential and the director did not put his best work forward. The film contains nudity, predictable twist, not intense violence, dark scenes and predictable outcome. The movie has strong religious references.
Kingdom Come is about a group of people who awaken in an abandoned building, and they do not remember how they got there. The building walls have blood on them, and there is no escaping the building because there are no exits. After some events, the group discovers that it is not a human they are afraid of but a supernatural force. Flashbacks of the character’s life are shown as they try to escape the demonic building.
Roger Jackson (Jo Jo Karume - Black Eve (2010), Face 2 Face (2011), Avalanche (2014)) is one of the characters who is always angry and always knows what is best for everyone. It is not right, but I was happy when Roger received his fate or what he deserves. This was by far the best seen for me because we see a flashback of the horrific thing he did, and we saw him paying for it in the building. It was disturbing for me but at the same time, he was tried for his wrongs and proven guilty with a crucial penalty.
Later in the movie we see the mastermind who is behind this game that tries to get everyone to kill each other. Daniel (Jason Martorino - Posthuman (2010), The End of War (2014), The Secret Lives of Lovers (2014)) became the judge of these sinners/people to see who deserves to die and who deserves to live.
Beware; you will get tired of seeing the characters trying to escape by running around the building although they know they are in a supernatural purgatory with no chance of escaping because there is no exit.
I gave this movie a 4 because it tried to make different creatures that I am not used to seeing, and the effects were somewhat good. Everything else in the movie is a cliche, and the director/writer did not do a good job biting off of other movies. The actors did not help this movie with their poor acting. The characters are bad because they appeared to be not themselves/real and more of a copycat of other horror movie characters. The message I got from this movie is that people have to pay for the sins they committed in the afterlife or before they die.
