Left Behind: The Movie Reviews

March 2, 2001
In the end, or maybe in the beginning, it won't merely be the unfaithful on the screen who will feel left behind.

Might be extremely effective while preaching to the converted, but it's no great shakes as secular entertainment.
February 5, 2001
An exceedingly poorly made motion picture.
February 5, 2001
Nearly unendurable.
February 2, 2001
A competently made film hampered by wooden performances and a script that has a few too many 'Gee whiz' moments of dialogue.
February 2, 2001
For all its intimations of fire and brimstone, the film isn't remotely frightening, and the high-school-level acting doesn't help.

A classic case of preaching to the converted, this relentlessly boring movie is unlikely to appeal to anyone except hard-core fans of Christian sci-fi.
February 2, 2001
It may have seemed plausible on paper, but Left Behind, the conspiracy-laden, Christian-themed thriller that has sold five million copies in book form, just looks ludicrous on screen.
February 2, 2001
As a film, it's a sorry mess of addled plotting that serves up byzantine paranoia about conspiracies lurking around the United Nations.
February 1, 2001
Solid, unexceptional mix of thrills and human drama.
