Rumors of War follows a young journalist who refuses to get the "chip" that people in the End Times are embedding in their skin. She begins to see how all prophecies she has been studying are coming true. She is on the run but leaves behind a journal that is picked up by an agent for the One World Government years later who ends up realizing the Truth and joins others who are following the Truth.
This movie was a series of flashbacks between Roxy, the young journalist, and Agent Shaw of the One World Government who finds her journal years later. The events and characters seem real and scary! It was a little hard to follow the flashbacks, but it was interesting to see how some of the characters changed their beliefs from the beginning to the end of the movie.
In the post apocalyptic future, Agent Shaw (Ben Davies, Courageous) works for the only surviving government working to bring order to a world full of decay and violence. Shaw offers little mercy to those that would stand in the way of the government’s edict, that everyone submit to an implanted chip that tracks their movements and purchases. He is certain that those “zealots” that would put their belief in God ahead of the beliefs of society, could lead the world back on the road toward destruction. The zealots need to be eliminated. But his faith was challenged when he found a small book in the rubble near one of the “rebel” encampments- the diary of young college student named Roxy (Jennifer Cooper), who was at the epicentre of the chip’s creation years before. She was a young aspiring journalism major whose life took a dark turn when she began researching Mr. Zurn (Eric Roberts, The Dark Knight), the man behind this implanted chip.
Rumors of Wars is a a suspenseful, action packed film that centers around two converging stories- the “last days” of our present and the final days of our future. Written and Directed by Paul Tomborello, and starring Ben Davies, Jennifer Cooper, and Eric Roberts, the DVD comes to stores November 11th.
