Left Behind Reviews
Bad special effects and the story is awfull.
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.
This movie is soo bad that is bad...
I simply dont understand!!! I signed up here just to rate this movie!!! Simply bad!!!!
Avoid at all cost, it really is utter garbage, and you will have enough in the first 20 minutes..embarrassing!
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.
You do know Christians, Muslims, and even Jews worship the same God, right?
