Role: Jake Martel
Jake Martel is son of Lord Martel and a computer decoding genius. Recently released from Wormwood Scrubs for computer crime, he is persuaded by his father to join him on Sacred Island to decrypt the Loculus. When Martel and his team are killed, Jake flees with Mira in a quest that will lead them across Europe to the Loculus’ hiding place in Patmos.
James about his character: Jake is a troubled young man, messed up emotionally and completely unsure of his next move in life. When his estranged father needs help in breaking these ancient codes, he does it mainly because the subject links in with something Jake has a clear affinity for. He certainly isn't motivated by any misguided parental feelings. Then he's drawn in further by something he doesn't fully understand and, as the story unfolds, we realise why he hasn't understood the bigger implications. When he first meets Mira, Jake isn't sure if he can trust her or if he even likes her. But he's inexorably drawn to her too for other strange reasons so Jake embarks on a richly rewarding personal quest that has been exciting to play. Jake is the eyes of the audience and he asks the questions they want to know because the character doesn't understand alchemy, the occult or the Knights Templar either.
Plot: A sacred ancient relic, missing and fought over for centuries, reappears in present day and threatens to reveal its powerful secret. Billionaire Magnus Martel enlists the reluctant aid of his son, Jake and a student of alchemy, Mira, to find and destroy the Loculus. Hot in pursuit is the Grand Master, a demonic sentinel aided by the powerful remnants of the Knight Templars, whose unfaltering quest is to take possession of the Loculus and use its devastating power to herald the Apocalypse.

Nominated for “Best Film” (2001) at the Sitges-Catalonian International Film Festival
James D’Arcy (on casting): I'd gone on holiday after Nicholas Nickleby because I was so exhausted and I literally stepped off the aeroplane to a frantic phone call from my agent. He said, 'There's this script that you must read tonight as we have a meeting first thing in the morning'. I was still in holiday mode and wasn't that interested but I started reluctantly reading the Revelation screenplay and within three pages I was gripped. I couldn't stop turning the pages because it was packed with interesting ideas, bizarre facts and amazing twists. I immediately met up with Stuart Urban, found out Terence Stamp would be playing my father - much to the delight of my own mother who is an enormous fan - and said, let's go.
Terence Stamp: My relationship with James was more difficult because our characters are at loggerheads. Magnus is trying to make amends with his son - like all ambitious men he hasn't had too much time for him in the past - and is trying to heal the rift. Jake is very wary of his father and isn't sure if he wants to get emotionally wound up by him again. It was clear from the start James was quite capable of giving a multi-faceted performance without any help from me.
It is indeed a curious beast, and again, not a Horror film at all, although there were some lipsmackingly gory moments. So if you’ve ever wanted to see Celia Imrie flambéed or Terence Stamp skinned alive, then this is the film for you. Directed by Stuart Urban, the film almost defies classification. The vulnerable, baby-faced hero was played by James D’Arcy, who enjoyed a good chemistry with co-star Natasha Wightman as Mira, a damsel-in-distress who turned out to be damned sight more than she let on --- VISIMAG Frightfest Review David Miller
Though a success, The Da Vinci Code movie could not equal the heroic level that the novel had attained. But before the film’s release, another movie, Revelation, created in the United Kingdom on a much smaller budget, had largely tackled the same themes, and one might say, more imaginatively so. As a film, it is superior to The Da Vinci Code, playing with more themes, symbolism and plotlines --- Philip Coppens Revelation
Another real plus in this production is the on-location shooting at such wonderful sacred sites as the Rennes-le-Chateau in France on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean. Fine performances by James D’Arcy and Natasha Wightman as Jake and Mira
