Amerigeddon is not so much another Christian film as it is a film that buys into all the rampant conspiracy theories that much of conservative America and fundamentalist Christianity accepts as truth. Theres Alex Jones, the radio host and vlogger who has become Americas leading conspiracy theorist (including, among other things, promulgating theories about school shootings being fake flag operations, that Obama wanted to confiscate guns and being an anti-vaxxer). Joness name is prominently displayed on the credits and he appears in a small cameo as a senator in the opening scenes. The film ticks off all the boxes associated with lunatic conspiracy theories soldiers are deployed domestically where the first thing they are ordered to do is confiscate the populaces guns; the United Nations is seen as a sinister agency that has orchestrated the coup of the US government on behalf of foreign powers (which are strongly suggested as being Russian and Chinese); terms are bandied about like Crisis Actor(the belief there exists a body of actors who are hired to play the roles of the grieving at false flag shooting incidents); the One World Government (the agency that Christianity conspiracy theorists believe the Anti-Christ is trying to establish); and the Texas Secession. People even start to get into the GMO food debate.
Elsewhere, Diane Ladds grandmother is said to want to create her own militia, while her fifteen year-old granddaughter is a crack gunshot (as all the rest of the family apparently also are). The film opens on a montage of news clips, including ones of Obama and Joe Biden that have even been altered to suggest that they want to curtail civil liberties. It should be noted that what we have here is exactly the fantasies that play out through the heads of people like Cliven Bundy, the audience for Fox News and those who unquestioningly support Alex Jones and Donald Trump that a liberal government that has bent far too much to the dictates of the UN is wanting to take away the ordinary mans guns and override the Second Amendment.
Amerigeddon is essentially a variant on the Right Wing invasion fantasy of yore that The Enemy is about to invade the USA and depose government, liberty and family values and especially confiscate the average mans guns. We have had variants on this in the Soviet invasion films from the heyday of the Cold War such as Invasion USA (1952) to 80s revivals such as Red Dawn (1984) and Chuck Norriss own Invasion U.S.A. (1985). Indeed, Mike Norris seems to have construed Amerigeddon as a conscious take on his fathers Invasion U.S.A., although this never gets much beyond its characters acting as mouthpieces to actually let its action element kick in. It may be an understatement to say that it is not exactly a credible film it has the weird belief that an entire heavily-armed invasion force can be held back by half-a-dozen people on a farm and their guns with a single tape recording as evidence.
There are less characters in the film than there are actors that have been written as mouthpieces for viewpoints. India Eisley pouts to her father (Carey Scott): Dad, why do you waste your time with that fascist conspiracy nut? Said fascist conspiracy nut later calls Carey Scott with greeting: Hows my favourite liberal senator? Do people actually talk like that in the real world, you keep wondering. (The only thing that Norris never digs a knife in about is the fact that Eisley also leads a campus womens rights crusade). The film comes with heavily symbolic shots of the enemy soldiers shooting up a tent filled with military, represented by bullet holes going through an American flag, or of enemy boots crumbling a flyer distributed by India Eisley saying Girl Know Your Rights.
