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.

With this kind of marketing campaign, every dollar counts.

Remember how all the faithful vanished in Left Behind? Well, they're still gone in Left Behind II, which is somehow even worse than the original film, although we are all out of room on the ratings scale to actually go any lower. I doubt of course that this review will sway anyone determined to see the film, but I'll try any way. It's an ultra-low budget affair, filled with cornball dialogue, impossible plot points, and atrocious acting. The story has the Left Behind survivors dealing now with the rise of the Antichrist (Gordon Currie), who's actually the head of the UN, determined to, well, do whatever it is the Antichrist does during the end of the world. Will Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) stop him? (He is a journalist, after all!) Rest assured, there's at least one more Left Behind movie already in the can and at least 12 books in the series...
