God has lost faith in man and he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) comes down to Earth to stop it. Jeep Hanson (Lucas Black) and his father Bob (Dennis Quaid) are taking care of pregnant Charlie (Adrianne Palicki). They work at Paradise Falls diner in the middle of nowhere with Percy Walker (Charles S. Dutton). Kyle Williams (Tyrese Gibson) has come to buy some drugs. Sandra (Kate Walsh) and Howard Anderson (Jon Tenney) are waiting for their car with sexual daughter Audrey (Willa Holland). Communication is cut off from the outside world. The group of strangers must battle all of heaven to save the world.

There is nothing to the story and the dialog is unimaginative. Otherwise it has good action and a few good actors. It's a bit of B-action.
