Please do not stream this movie.  Don’t give these people a dime.  This is probably the worst Fatima movie ever made.  Totally inaccurate.  It costs $20 to rent. The Angel of Fatima was portrayed as a female.  They presented the third secret as the vision released in 2000.  Timeline totally out of order.

Totally disgusted.  I just finished the movie.  Tinman never threatens the children.  The Miracle of the Sun is not accompanied with the field and everyone in it being totally dry. The movie ends with a quote from Albert Einstein.

Yes, it really was.  It wasn’t quite as bad as the Joan of Ark movie from the nineties, or the Noah’s Ark movie with Russell Crow, but it was terrible.  I was really mad when we finished watching it.  I’m so glad that I didn’t recommend it to any novus ordo family members.  They would have seen it as a documentary or a catechism lesson.

Thanks for the warning. I suspected it would be like you described. The Novus Ordo's are blind, their blindness is a punishment from God upon them because they prefer the lie.

You could tell what it was going to be from the trailer, complete with the cheesy music soundtrack.  I didn't like their portrayal of the young Sister Lucia either.

I like this review from Amazon:

Quote
If the film's intention was to drain the story of Fatima of any kind of supernatural content, it succeeded in doing just that. Literally two thirds of the film were wasted on a fictional subplot that ended up taking over the main story, stupid flash forwards to a 1989 conversation between a badly catechized Sister Lucia and a vapid atheist biographer whose objections she is too feckless to answer, and endless emotive scenes that didn't move the story forward at all. The whole story line was choppy and broken up. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS FILM. It's so bad that I can imagine anti-pope Bergoglio praising it.

A review from Dr. Chojnowski:

Well it happened. The new Fatima movie came out and it was as expected. I will admit that the scenery was very beautiful and the texture of the movie was worth seeing. The rest of the movie was awful. From the stiff and unconvincing acting of the adults to the uncharacteristic attitudes and looks of the 3 children, this was a "religious" movie stripped of the truly supernatural. It started with a 1989 interview with the fake Sister Lucy in which some man who seems like a left-wing sociologist presents questions to "Sister Lucy" is unable to answer. "Sister Lucy," who did not resemble the real Sister Lucy or the imposter Sister Lucy, fell into a fideism, being utterly able to challenge the cheap skepticism of the writer. So the first take from the movie, we have completely failed to penetrate the mass consciousness with regard to the falsified identity of Sister Lucy of Fatima. We are trying and we will try harder.

The biggest problem of the movie, other than the terrible and unrealistic acting --- why cannot they ever portray Portuguese shepherds as if they were Portuguese shepherds --- was the psychological aspect of the entire portrayal. We felt as if we were stuck in the psychology of Lucia and we were left close to the edge of saying that it was the "pious" psychology that shaped the "nice" Fatima message. The wonderful thing about Marian apparitions --- certainly with regard Fatima --- is that there is little or no psychological aspect to it.  The children identified what they had actually seen and heard and that was that. They did not budge from their account and they did not have psychological moments other than during the times they were actually having the known apparitions. Whether it was wondering around a church in the dark or seeing her soldier brother appear before her as if she was engrossed in a daydream/vision. We seem to be encouraged to wonder whether the apparitions were not just a more grand example of her pious daydreaming. While Lucia seems to wander around in uncertainty, her mother's over the top hostility dominates the first part of the film and produces a violently hostile attitude by most in the town against the children.

In an apparent attempt to make it all more "nice," they did not have the Freemasonic administrator threaten to boil each child in oil or throw them in jail with ruffians from August 13th-15th, 1917. The interview with the bishop, portrayed as self-interested and evil, did not happen to my knowledge.

The apparitions themselves were very poorly done as was the Miracle of the Sun. First, I thought that the figure portraying Our Lady was very creepy, getting way too close to the children. Her attitude was totally wrong. Lucia has said that she never say Our Lady smiling during the apparitions, whereas this woman, with too much makeup on constantly smiles and almost jokes around. The attitude of the children also seems all wrong. From the pictures and Lucia's own account of the apparitions and their aftermath, the children were  brought to a somber state that reflected the warning and the solemnity of the Message which was conveyed to them. Jacinta's constant conveyance of what Our Lady was telling them to the crowd, was jarring and out of character for the children. There was a bit of Catholic religious content, Immaculate Heart, reparation, rosary, etc. Mostly it was "nice" content that focused on "peace." The appearance of the man/woman amidst the crowds as the Angel of Peace was strange and not how it happened. The vision, which was put forward by the Vatican as the "Third Secret," was incorporated into the movie, as a man "dressed in white" stepped over bodies as he and cardinal and bishops went up to a wooden cross to be shot by soldiers. In other words, there is no more controversy about the Secrets of Fatima.

The portrayal of the Miracle of the Sun had none of the power and clarity that characterizes the real miracle. You are left questioning whether the external miracle could have been a manifestation of "positive thinking" on the part of the crowd, rather than certainly being an event meant to shake up and convert.

Of course, the cut and paste pictures of Paul VI and "Sister Lucy" were shown in front of the notorious covered camera, along with the wretched picture of "Sister Lucy" receiving communion from John Paul II. 

Ultimately, we are left with a bland feeling of "niceness." in which any non-Catholic who sees the movie can say "that's nice for them," AND TAKE NO FURTHER NOTICE. Wait until the real story gets out. Realism produces Piety and Piety produces Realism. We don't want to be "nice," we want to be truthful, good, and charitable.

This does sound terrible.  However, I am not sure I see why it is a problem that the angel is portrayed as female.  Angels have no sex, so it seems like either would be okay.  Also, angels are often female in art, even medieval art.

It's very important to ((TPTB)) to diffuse and misconstrue the true Fatima message. They know the Consecration is the only way they will be defeated now. Much better for them that it is just another Disney-like story . ( No I haven't seen the movie and plan not to) You have to tip your hat to them- they have all the bases covered.

The director's father is a jew. So, there you have it;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gillo_Pontecorvo


Pontecorvo, born in Pisa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisa), was the son of a wealthy secular Italian Jewish family. His father was a businessman. Gillo's siblings included brothers Bruno Pontecorvo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Pontecorvo), an internationally acclaimed nuclear physicist and one of the so-called Via Panisperna boys (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Via_Panisperna_boys), who defected to the Soviet Union in 1950; ::) Guido Pontecorvo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guido_Pontecorvo), a geneticist; and Polì [Paul] Pontecorvo, an engineer who worked on radar after World War II; and David Maraoni; and sisters Giuliana (m. Talbet); Laura (m. Coppa); and Anna (m. Newton).
Gillo Pontecorvo studied chemistry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemistry) at the University of Pisa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Pisa), but dropped out after passing just two exams. There he first became aware of opposition political (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics_of_Italy) forces, coming into contact for the first time with leftist students and professors. In 1938, faced with growing anti-Semitism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Semitism), ::) he followed his elder brother Bruno to Paris, where he found work in journalism and as a tennis instructor.

Pontecorvo's next major work, Queimada! (Burn! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn!), 1969), is also anti-colonial, this time set in the Antilles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antilles). This film (starring Marlon Brando (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marlon_Brando)) depicts an attempted revolution of the oppressed. Pontecorvo continued his series of highly political films with Ogro (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogro) (1979), which addresses the occurrence of Basque terrorism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ETA_(separatist_group)) at the end of Francisco Franco (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_Franco)'s dwindling regime in Spain.

https://akacatholic.com/fatima-the-movie-review/ (https://akacatholic.com/fatima-the-movie-review/)

From Lou:

Contrary to my previous comments (https://akacatholic.com/fatima-the-movie/) about having no intention of watching the movie, Fatima, after having received a number of messages about the film, I’ve decided to bite the bullet so I can provide readers with a proper review.

The following review is not concerned with the entirety of the screenplay, but rather is limited to certain key portions of the supernatural event and the degree to which the movie “retained the historical authenticity of the story,” as the filmmakers suggest it does.

The movie opens with young Lucia in a cave by herself having an encounter with the Angel of Peace, who leads her to recite in prayer, “I believe. I have hope. I love God.”
At the conclusion to this prayer, the angel instructs Lucia, “Pray for peace.”

Already, the filmmakers have shown their hand; clearly, they intend to take great liberties with the contents of Sr. Lucia’s memoirs, which they claim as the source for their scripting of her miraculous encounters, in order to water down – that is, to make politically correct – its actual message.

One notes Sr. Lucia’s description of the angel as recorded in her own words:
It was a young man, about fourteen or fifteen years old, whiter than snow, transparent as crystal when the sun shines through it, and of great beauty. We were surprised, absorbed, and struck dumb with amazement.

Did you get that? A young man…

In the film, not only is the angel portrayed as a dark, shadowy, and drably dressed figure, the role is played by a female, 28-year-old Ivone Fernandes-Jesus. Even this, however, is not evident in the scene as the “being” (for lack of a better word) appears androgenous, leaving the viewer to wonder if it’s a young woman or perhaps a gender confused teenaged boy. How very Hollywood!

And then there’s the prayer itself, which according to Sr. Lucia’s memoirs actually reads:

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.”  [Emphasis added]
Ah, but you see, one cannot hope to achieve box office success while daring to suggest (as the messenger of the Almighty actually did) that unbelievers are in need of God’s pardon!
The same PC filter was also applied to the words of Our Lady at her first appearance to the three young seers. Missing entirely from the film is her response to Lucia concerning a departed friend, whom the Blessed Virgin says, “will be in Purgatory until the end of time.”

The reason is obvious; the filmmakers are making a deliberate effort to eliminate as much Catholicism from the story as possible.

Also missing from this scene are Our Lady’s words about the suffering that “He [God] wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and of supplication for the conversion of sinners.”

During the scene leading up to Our Lady’s second appearance on June 13, 1917, Lucia, who along with Jacinta and Francisco was followed to the Cova da Iria by a small group of pious persons, is shown to be basking in the glory of their attention. This is not the only place in the film where little Lucia is depicted as such.

In reality, however, she was a serious child who suffered greatly thanks to the derision she endured for having faithfully witnessed to the miraculous appearance of Our Lady. As she wrote in her memoirs referring to the day of the final apparition:

Thank God, human respect and self- love were, at that time, still unknown to me.

When Our Lady appears in the scene depicting her second appearance in the film, the first words that she speaks are so odd that even a heretic would object.
“It pleases me that you’ve been praying for me,” she says.

Now, why would the children be praying for the Blessed Virgin Mary? Are we to imagine that she is but a common sinner? Stay tuned…

If one were to identify the central purpose of the Fatima apparitions, it could be summed up in the following words of Our Lady as spoken directly to Lucia during her appearance of June 13, 1917:

Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and those souls will be loved by God, like flowers placed by me to adorn His throne. [Emphasis added]

The closest the film comes to relaying this message is when Our Lady tells Lucia, “Jesus has chosen you. You are going to be the messenger of faith in Mary’s Immaculate Heart.”
To be clear, the difference between “faith in” and devotion to is substantial; even the demons believe, what they lack is devotion. One also notes that the promise of salvation that is attached to devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was also left out.

During the July 13, 1917 apparition, the children received the vision of Hell and the vision that is attached to the Third Secret. The film does a somewhat reasonable job of portraying the vision of Hell. However, with regard to the latter there are a number of things that stand out as very troublesome.

Though it may hardly be necessary for most readers of this space, recall that immediately following the vision of Hell, Our Lady explains:
You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go.

The filmmakers provide these words accurately enough, but they chose to leave out the sentence immediately following:
To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.

Once again, we see that the central purpose of the apparitions is being overlooked, and along with it the relationship between salvation and devotion to the Immaculate Heart. Note that Our Lady repeated this message in consecutive months, making its importance all the more plain, and yet the filmmakers evidently decided that it’s really not so important after all.
As recorded by Sr. Lucia, Our Lady then immediately said:

If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.

To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.
The filmmakers’ version of this scene provides no mention whatsoever of the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, nor does it mention the first Saturday devotions and the Communion of Reparation.

Can it even be said that a film in which these do not feature prominently is truly about the Fatima apparitions at all?
In the film’s version of events, Our Lady, following the vision of Hell, simply says:

If we do not stop insulting God, there will be a war worse than this one.

Yes, you read that correctly; she said, “If we do not stop…” Maybe this is why the children were supposedly praying for Our Lady.
In any case, this is a direct invitation to heresy (i.e., a denial of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception and her sinlessness) for which the so-called “Catholic” contributors to the film – including Dick Lyles, the head of Origin Entertainment – should be deeply ashamed.

By a war worse than this one, it is obvious enough that this refers to WWII, which, as foretold by Our Lady, did indeed break out during the pontificate of Pope Pius XI. In the film, after this statement, the children are immediately given the vision attached to the Third Secret, which unfolds within a war scene.

This is highly problematic inasmuch as it invites confusion among ill-informed viewers who are likely to connect the two events; i.e., they will presume that the children were shown a pope being assassinated during WWII.

This, it seems to me, may not have been an oversight on the part of the filmmakers, but rather a deliberate attempt to provide viewers with enough leeway to conclude whatever they wish, objective truth be damned.

Recall that in the film, just prior to this vision of a pope being killed during a war, Our Lady says, “If we do not stop insulting God, there will be a war worse than this one.” This creates conditions that are ripe for misunderstanding.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at this scene through the eyes of the uninitiated, a demographic that the filmmakers are admittedly and specifically targeting.

WWII obviously happened. This suggests that humanity did not stop insulting God, at least not in time. The assassination of the pope, however, obviously did not (and has not) happened. What this suggests is that humanity, at some point after the war had begun, had ceased to insult God.

Now, why would the filmmakers wish to paint such a convoluted picture?

God alone knows for sure, but one may find it noteworthy that among those involved in promoting the film is the World Apostolate of Fatima, the former Blue Army, which is a vocal proponent of the Vatican’s official (and diabolically deceptive) narrative, including the utterly false claim that the consecration of Russia has indeed been accomplished.

In spite of the fact that the filmmakers dared not mention the consecration of Russia at all, could it be that they are happy enough just to lead viewers to conclude that the conditions set forth by Our Lady at Fatima, whatever they were, have been fulfilled?

It certainly seems that way.

Imagine, people of faith (allegedly) creating a film that implies that mankind has stopped insulting God even as the Holy Name of Jesus Christ is verboten in the halls of power, the LGBT agenda is spreading throughout the world like wildfire, and tens of millions of human beings are slaughtered year in and year out by abortion.

As far as the apparitions are concerned, the film moves on to October 13, 1917 – the final appearance of Our Lady at Cova da Iria – and the great Miracle of the Sun.

In terms of special effects, in spite of the missteps and errors already noted, I was a bit surprised that the filmmakers didn’t put more effort into recreating the sun’s movement in the sky as noted by so many eyewitnesses to the event. Then again, neither did they devote considerable resources to recreating what Sr. Lucia recorded in her memoirs concerning Our Lady’s appearances:

…there before us on a small holmoak, we beheld a Lady all dressed in white. She was more brilliant than the sun, and radiated a light more clear and intense than a crystal glass filled with sparkling water, when the rays of the burning sun shine through it.

In all of her memoir entries concerning each of Our Lady’s appearances, the Mother of God is said have manifested “on the holmoak” as described above.

In spite of this detailed firsthand account provided by the seer, the filmmakers chose to depict Our Lady as an ordinary woman, in ordinary dress, walking barefoot on the dirt toward the children. When she appears in the final apparition scene, she is depicted as sauntering up, once again barefoot, slogging her way through a puddle, which in addition being inaccurate, is disturbing in terms of the veneration due to the Mother of God.

If the intention was to downplay to the greatest extent possible the supernatural nature of the event, as well as the extraordinary graces singularly bestowed by God upon the Blessed Virgin, the filmmakers succeeded.

Also perplexing, though less important, is that the film did not highlight the fact that the sopping wet clothing of the people who were present during the torrential downpour that preceded the miracle, as well as the rain drenched ground, had dried instantly when the sun inexplicably moved about the sky.

In conclusion, it is difficult to comprehend the unmitigated gall of these filmmakers, men and women who took it upon themselves to play fast and loose with the message that was miraculously delivered to humanity by the Blessed Virgin Mary herself.

Then again, all indications are that the “Catholic” contribution to this project came from persons who are firmly entrenched in the Novus Ordo counterchurch. As such, they evidently learned how to twist, misappropriate, and deny Our Lady’s words from the most accomplished of Fatima conmen – Karol Wojtyla, Josef Ratzinger and Angelo Sodano.
