Just when you think you've seen the worst Nicolas Cage movie (The Wicker Man, Season of the Witch, Ghost Rider, Bangkok Dangerous, 8MM), Cage sinks even lower in Left Behind. The acting was terrible, the writing was atrocious, and the movie looked cheap as hell. But worst of all, this movie was just bullshit Christian propaganda, and not a very good one, as the movie is so ridiculously inept and dumb, it feels like an insult to Christianity. How do I give this movie 0 stars?

It is recently the worst movie I have seen with famous actors.

Bad special effects and the story is awfull.

This was the worst film ever! I wasn´┐ 1/2(TM)t sure if the acting was bad or it was just a garbage script to begin with. On Netflix this film tries to pass itself under the Sci-Fi category, yet there is no science fiction. Instead the movie acts as an arm of religious superiority. So all the religions in all the world, if only everyone would have seen how right the Christians are. This doesn´┐ 1/2(TM)t advance science fiction in ANY WAY! I felt that I literally gave a part of my soul trying to watch through this awful film!

Very disappointing for a N.C movie, can't even proceed to more than 15 min..

Well, first you need to get past the fact that this is clearly a Christian movie - that does not, to its credit, overtly oversell the Biblical message. So, if that is an immediate non-starter, there is no point in even considering this movie.

So, if you do have some semblance of Christian faith or upbringing, this was an ok representation of ordinary people dealing with going through the Rapture and being "Left Behind".

The cast is ok, with Cage giving one of his more wooden performances. The set-up keeps you engaged up until the Rapture. Yet then it just becomes so ridiculous with people all speculating as to what just happened - especially some nerdy Asian guy (stereotype!) - when it is so clearly the Rapture.

After that, this basically becomes an "Airport" movie as Cage has to pilot their disabled plane back in to NYC using a highway since the airports are all shutdown.

Overall, a rather bland but engaging film if you're ok with being subtly and not so subtly preached at.

Worst movie I have ever seen

May have received an approval from the source material's authors towards the rapture's beginning of an end, what makes it a debatable worthwhile watch is the overwhelming con leaning towards the seemingly religious parody over the devastating hysteria and counter arguments that may be offensive with not much further contexts while the appeals can be sought in the manageably effective sympathetic direction and decent pointers in few performances. (C+)

If Nicolas Cage is not Evangelical, he must have gotten a lot of money for this horrendous film. Only evangelicals love to think the end of the world is going to happen on their lifetime. This movie was really really bad. This was more like a "conversion therapy" type of movie. I can see pastors promoting this movie from their pulpits, trying get their followers more scared (and excited) about the end of the world, crazy people...

This is one of the worst movies I've ever had the displeasure of watching. I would put this movie down there with the likes of Sharknado. I mean, clothes falling from mid-air, a woman with a gun on a plane, and two people on the same flight to London who have met before? Let's be real. No one wants a sequel. Make it stop.

God give me those 2 hours of my life back. What the hell did I just watch? Terrible oh so terrible plot and acting. Don't waste your time watching this. Hopefully unlike me you are reading reviews before you watch a film. One of the worst films I have ever watched.

So I think critics and audiences alike are missing the fact that this movie is supposed to have a biblical and Christian tone. It gives a fresher take onto the original book series, but it shouldÔ(TM)ve stayed along the lines of the original source material. They tried to make their own story line and it didnÔ(TM)t really work. Not to mention most of the acting was bland. Nicholas Cage does an amazing job as Rayford Steele, and keeps the same attitude portrayed in the books. CanÔ(TM)t complain about no true ending to the movie because the series spans a full 7 years and 12 books in the original series, not to mention the prequel series.

I can't believe I watched this entire movie. I'm not sure what was worse, the storyline, the script, the acting it was all so awful.

hard to understand if you don't read the bible

Too bad I can't give it a negative rating...this was the worst movie ever. The only thing that would save it would be a tongue-in-cheek parody. I can't believe they wasted valuable time on a stinker like this. Even the bible thumpers thinks it is ridiculous. Bad acting, poor writing, one dimensional charachters, there is no excuse for this weak attempt at the art of film. People are getting tired of being preached to. Cage was meant to be a headliner but all he did was make this a head scratcher. Sorry, but any talented technical people associated with this need to rethink their choice of project. Yes, I know there are talented people in their somewhere, because aside from the poor choice of subject and lousy writing, there was some element professional film making going on. The trailer was deceiving, and contained all the decent parts, enough to hook you into thinking it was going to be a great Nick Cage Action film. And about Cage, I lost interest in him when I saw the very end of ConAir, the little "family reunion" scene was so cringe-worthy, I actually did cry tears of astonishment that they kept THAT scene in there. Apologies to any professionals who worked on this film, sometimes you get so close to a thing, you can't see it for what it is.

Skyfairy propaganda disguised as a mystery. Truly truly appalling, although I presume it would appeal to the extreme right wing evangelists. or the truly deluded
Avoid at all cost, it really is utter garbage, and you will have enough in the first 20 minutes..embarrassing!

So Bad it took me 2 sittings to get to the end. One of the worst movies I've seen and i cant believe Nicholas Cage would sign up for this. Rubbish.

While I do not blame Nicholas Cage, the writers of this film made several mistakes.

1. The movie is boring - the stuff with the rapture happening was only a chapter in the original book. Making the entire movie about the aftermath of those events, while keeping the locations as limited as possible is lazy and I almost fell asleep.

2. No foreshadowing - shortly after the rapture, the main cast is told of what happened and what it means for the future of the world and mankind. In this movie, we get nothing.

3 (and moat important) WHERE IS NICHOLAE CARPATHIA?! - you DO NOT make a Left Behind movie and leave out its central villain! He doesn't even get a mention.

All in all, go watch the original Left Behind movie. Its a far better movie and properly sets up the events of the series of the series to come while showing why Nicholae Carpathia is a great villain.

But do not watch this reboot.

So, Left Behind assumes that if the rapture were to happen, everybody left behind would just automatically start turning into thieves and have no sense of humanity, elderly people who have a weak state of mind would ALSO be left behind, and even MUSLIMS get left behind???

You do know Christians, Muslims, and even Jews worship the same God, right?
