Revelation is a 1999 thriller film directed by Spanish filmmaker, Andre Van Heerden, and starring Jeff Fahey, Nick Mancuso, and Tony Nappo. The film takes place in a not-too-distant future where a new world order has emerged, and the world is on the brink of an inevitable apocalypse. The story follows a group of people who must navigate their way through a sinister plot hatched by a shadowy organization that threatens the fate of the entire world.

The film follows the protagonist, Josh McGregor (Jeff Fahey), a former CIA operative who is called back into action to investigate a mysterious artifact that has been found in the ruins of an ancient city. The artifact which is believed to hold the key to humanity's salvation, is being fiercely contested by an underground organization known as The Twelve, who believe that the artifact poses a threat to their plans for world domination.

As Josh sets out to uncover the secrets of the artifact, he finds himself up against a formidable foe in the figure of The Deceiver (Nick Mancuso), a charismatic and manipulative leader of The Twelve who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Alongside Josh, is his loyal friend and fellow CIA operative, Eileen Flax (Carol Alt), who joins him on his quest to stop The Twelve and unravel the secrets of the artifact.

The film's visual style is a combination of science fiction and biblical end-time prophecy, with images of massive jets, helicopters and futuristic technology mixed with biblical references such as angels, demons, and the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The film is filled with pulse-pounding action sequences, including chases through underground tunnels, shootouts, and one-on-one fights, keeping the viewers on the edge of their seats.

One of the themes that the movie explores is the struggle between faith and reason. Josh's character, being a former CIA operative, is focused more on scientific fact and logic than on blind faith. Eileen, on the other hand, is portrayed as being more spiritual and faithful, with an unwavering belief in the power of God. This conflict between the two characters is a constant theme throughout the movie, as they grapple with the question of whether the artifact and the events that are unfolding are the result of divine intervention or of human scheming.

The movie's acting performances are solid, with Jeff Fahey as the lead delivering a believable and charismatic performance as the tough, yet vulnerable Josh McGregor. Nick Mancuso's portrayal of the enigmatic and ruthless leader of The Twelve is chilling and captivating. Carol Alt's performance as Eileen Flax, the spiritual CIA operative, is admirable, though her character's potential is not fully explored in the film.

In conclusion, Revelation is a classic science-fiction thriller movie that manages to keep viewers on the edge of their seats throughout the film. It is a must-watch for those who enjoy movies that explore the themes of faith, reason, and apocalypse. Andre Van Heerden's direction is commendable, and the visual effects are impressive for a film made in 1999. However, the film suffers from a lack of character development, and some of the story's subplots feel underdeveloped. Despite these shortcomings, the movie is still an enjoyable watch, and the overall experience is worth it.

Revelation is a 1999 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
