The Black Rider Revelation Road


The Rapture has come and gone, and in its wake is a famished wasteland filled with desperate scavengers and vicious bandits. Josh McManus (David A.R. White), a quiet drifter with a knack for fighting, finds himself in a dangerous border-town at the edge of the Wild Lands. The beleaguered local Mayor (James Denton) sends Josh on a vital mission to find the mysterious “Shepherd” (Robert Gossett). Is the Shepherd a true man of God or only a cult leader? With the aid of Sofia, a beautiful survivor (Hilty Bowen), Josh will discover the truth in an action-packed adventure that will put his skills and his faith to the test. Also starring Kevin Sorbo as Honcho, the outlandish local lord of thieves. With special appearance by Bruce Marchiano.

Dove Review

David A.R. White knocks it out of the park in this thrilling, faith-based action film “The Black Rider: Revelation Road.” White is outstanding as Josh McManus, a Christian man with awesome martial arts and fighting skills. Several action sequences are packed into the movie and White proves himself quite capable in these scenes. Since the Rapture has taken place in the film, and food and Bibles are rare, he is exactly what the doctor ordered. In fact, one ill woman desperately needs help and David and a beautiful young woman named Sofia (Hilty Bowen) seek out help despite many antagonists and obstacles. McManus influences Sofia in the right Way because she is thirsty to learn more about God.

Kevin Sorbo plays a flamboyant character named Honcho, and Bruce Marchiano makes a “divine” appearance in the film as well. The acting is outstanding, the action plentiful, and the story interesting. We are awarding “The Black Rider: Revelation Road” our “Faith-Friendly” 12+ Seal. It both entertains and makes one think about future end-time events. What a powerful combination!
