    After spending half the movie setting up a group of characters that end up stuck inside a roadside diner, the movie seems to skip a reel where you can't really make heads-or-tails of the appearance of Michael and Gabriel, angels from on-high in a time where the apocalypse seems eminent as the unborn child of a pregnant girl about to give birth becomes the target for some crazy creatures that show up out of the blue. The script is just incomprensible once they board up the diner to keep out the freaks that show up looking for the unborn baby.
    I give it 1.5 stars, or a grade of D+.

    Agreed completely. I wasn't really into the movie up until that point anyway but when it stopped making any kind of sense, I just gave up.

    My daughter forced me to take her and a friend to this yesterday. I would have to third Patrick and second Travis on this one, wait for the DVD. Too bad, I am a Paul Bettany fan. What it did do was reinforce how much I hate going to the theater...
