Dating back to the time of Jesus Christ, an ancient relic known as the Loculus has been fought over by the forces of light and darkness down the centuries. Created in 50 AD, the wood panels of the Loculus are emblazoned with two images: the Ankh symbol - a looped crucifix - and the Caduceus - a rod entwined with two serpents.
On its perilous journey through history, the Loculus was further adorned with more arcane mystical imagery including pentagrams, hexagrams, a crucified serpent, the naked human form divine and a hermaphrodite. And many have tried to unlock the secret of the sacred artefact - a secret only a chosen few know contains profound and overwhelming ramifications for mankind. In 1299 a Jewish alchemist's attempts to unravel the enigma ended in disaster.
In 1710 Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of the laws of gravity and a foremost member of the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar, also strove to answer the riddle. But with the art of science in its infancy, Newton realised the Underground Stream of research needed to solve the puzzle would have to flow for several more centuries before the prophesied ultimate Great Work could be wrought in all its glory.
Now, the Loculus, missing for hundreds of years, has reappeared again... Revelation tells the story of the final search for the Loculus and its effect on the Martel family and the whole world.
Well, after reading the cover I was reminded of a brilliant book, The DaVinci Code, so of course I was intrigued. I have become quite fascinated with the symbolic history of the occult since reading that book.
So, into electric-blanket-heated bed to sooth my sore back, and press play. I was all settled in for a thrilling movie.
However, by the time it had been playing for an hour, I was nearly asleep. The 'thriller' scenes were dull, lifeless, and in many cases just downright pathetically funny. If I wasn't so lethargic from it, I probably would have laughed.
The only reason I gave it a couple of 3's was that the symbology contained in the movie was actually quite interesting in places (such as the global positions of many temples, and the symbols they form) and I would probably watch it simply to freeze-frame it in places and take notes for future research.
Overall, a sad, sad attempt at an interesting theory, badly executed in true 60's-70's 'The Bourne Identity' style.
