Left Behind Reviews

October 3, 2014
A shoo-in to clean up at the next Razzie Awards.
October 3, 2014
Not only is this an amateurish travesty combining fundamentalist Christian eschatology with disaster movie b.s., but it's plodding and tedious.

It should have more smoldering panic bursting into full-blown freak-outs. It should have more passion, more intensity. It should have more bees.

Left Behind is biblical in its silliness.

It believes people might buy a ticket to Left Behind and not know the twist, like someone sitting down to watch Godzilla and being shocked by the entrance of a giant lizard.

Score one for Satan.

Featuring local-cable production values and dialogue that seems written by a crack team of Sunday schoolers, director Vic Armstrong's "Left Behind" does no favors for the Christian proponents of its belief system ...

Forced to wait at least half an hour for the skeletal plot to kick in, we have plenty of time to notice the awkward dialogue and slapdash logic.

American Idol champ Jordin Sparks .. sings the end-credits ditty, "I Wish We'd All Been Ready." Viewers will wish that director Vic Armstrong and scripters Paul Lalonde and John Patus had been ready, too.

Left Behind seriously could have used some divine intervention.

Fans of the evangelical-Christian film genre ... should demand higher production values instead of blindly supporting a movie just because they appreciate its themes.

At best, Left Behind is shoddily made sensationalist propaganda-with atrocious acting-that barely registers as entertainment. At worst, it's profoundly moronic.

"Left Behind" is a terrible movie, bad in almost every way, not even qualifying as so-bad-it's-good material.

The Rapture won't come soon enough for the unfortunate souls forced to suffer through Left Behind.
October 2, 2014
With a Sharknado-inspired visual style and a deeply weary lead performance from Nicolas Cage, Left Behind is cheap-looking, overwrought kitsch of the most unintentionally hilarious order.
October 2, 2014
With so much emphasis on proselytizing, there's little energy remaining for, you know, characters, plotting, dialogue ... pacing ...

"Left Behind" takes the end of the world and turns it not into a nightmare, but a nice long nap.

Cage is going for manly, if conflicted, family-guy confidence in this role, but somehow it comes off as nuttier than the events surrounding him.

This Left Behind may be worse than the last Left Behind, but it's much less boring, thanks in part to the commitment of its star, who plays the often ludicrous material with the straightest of faces. The Cage works in mysterious ways.

What has gone so horribly wrong in Cage's career that he is forced to accept any paycheck that comes his way?
