Left Behind: The Movie Review


Terrible
Based on the best-selling novel, Left Behind is the latest in an assembly line of Evangelical thrillers from Cloud Ten Pictures. Considering the success of The Omega Code, there's a surprisingly large audience of zealots who dream of screening films with "spiritual value" nationwide. And apparently, all that hard work is paying off.

Let readers be warned in advance, if you're part of the camp which tries to catch the "so bad it's good" movies filmcritic.com cheerfully slams on a weekly basis (and I mean you, Battlefield Earth), do yourself a favor and avoid Left Behind. Even if your interest is akin to mine, approaching the entire affair as a postmodern joke, your contribution is paving the way for more of this generic, Bible-thumping crap. With this kind of marketing campaign, every dollar counts.

L5: First City In Space Review


Bad
What should you expect from an IMAX 3D film about a future space colony where 10,000 people live while orbiting Earth? Turns out, very little. Hokey animation, overdone and often-pointless sound effects, and a story that feels like an after-school special combine to create an overall waste of time and the IMAX experience. In short, this is a huge disappointment for anyone expecting a realistic glimpse into the future of space colonization. Although publicity promises wildly creative computer graphics combined with data from NASA, L5 delivers more like Buck Rogers meets Nickelodeon.

Set 100 years in the future, the film is narrated in by Chieko (voice of Martha Henry), a seven year-old girl (played by Rachel Walker) native to the flourishing colony. A brief history of space exploration includes the sole thrill of a slow motion shuttle launch from the Kennedy Space Center as only IMAX can deliver. After an overview of L5 that is devoid of any detail or serious scientific facts/processes, the story quickly turns to a mission to save the colony from a water shortage. Sound disjointed? Yep.
