The Mark

posted by Nell Minow

The Mark is the first of a two-part Christian end times film starring Craig Sheffer.  He plays Chad Turner, a non-believer who gets caught up in the fight of his life and of his soul as a courier of a critically important biometric chip with world-changing powers.  On board an airplane with a businessman named Mr. Cooper (Eric Roberts), who will present the chip to the G20 summit, they are taken prisoner by Joseph Pike (Gary Daniels), a brutal man who has been hired by a billionaire to get the chip for him.

But Turner is not carrying the chip.  It has been implanted in his arm.  It is worthless unless he is alive.  Pike and Cooper are utterly ruthless but both have to find a way to fight each other without crashing the plane or killing Turner.  And then, somehow, some of the people on the plane just disappear, without their clothes and jewelry.  Everyone else is left behind.

Turner has lost his faith in just about everything, except perhaps for a lovely flight attendant named Dao (Sonia Couling).  But the brutality and corruption he sees in Cooper and Pike and the goodness he sees in Deo awaken the hero in him.

I have one copy to give away.  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Mark” in the subject line and don’t forget to include your address (US addresses only).  I’ll pick a winner at random on November 7.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
A documentary called "Young at Heart" had a choir of singers in their 80's performing contemporary rock songs.  The very fact of their age and experience gave an unexpectedly profound meaning to the words.  And in "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," a plot that ranges from silly to very silly
