Doomsday Prophecy BD 01 600x338 Doomsday Prophecy Blu ray Review

If you’ve seen one B-grade made-for-TV disaster flick, you’ve seen them all, really. Doomsday Prophecy is just the latest to cash in on the 2012 end of the world prophesy craze, complete with bad special effects, numerous earthquakes, and an impossible to follow plot that intertwines the supernatural with science fiction. When disastrous earthquakes begin devastating the world as the Earth’s solar system aligns with the Milky Way’s galactic equator, Eric Fox (A. J. Buckley) is summoned to the home of a reclusive writer whom he finds dead. There he also finds an artifact that gives him visions of the future. Teaming up with attractive young archaeologist Brook Calvin (Jewel Staite), Eric must use the artifact to help save the world whilst being pursued by gun toting government officials who also want to possess the artifact. Doomsday Prophecy is made up of low budget visual effects, lots of car chases and shootouts, and a meandering storyline; all the usual ingredients for a mindless SyFy Channel movie.

The AVC/MPEG-4 1080p transfer of Doomsday Prophecy has a lot of detail, strong contrast, and strong textural information, but the lousy (yeah, I said “lousy,”so sue me) special effects stick out like a sore thumb, and most of the time lose most of the detail, getting quite smooth. A main strength of the transfer are the spot on flesh tones and natural colors in the bright scenes.

Doomsday Prophecy BD 03 600x338 Doomsday Prophecy Blu ray Review

For a direct-to-video, made for television production, Doomsday Prophecy has a surprisingly engaging audio mix. Offered in lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (48kHz/24-bit), the mix is aggressive, with sounds like a radio or television often panned well off to the far right or far left, discrete sounds from gunshots to the rumble of a car engine panned off to the surrounds, and rather deep low frequencies to support the numerous earthquakes.

There’s nothing here but a rather delusional “making of” in which the cast and crew are convinced they’ve made the greatest film in the world.

Doomsday Prophecy is absolute nonsense, seriously. I’d say It looks decent on Blu-ray, but I think the extra resolution makes the bad special effects look even worse. Skip it.
