    Hark! A Christian thriller about the Last Days that doesn't (totally) suck. That's got to be a sign of the times.

    Might be extremely effective while preaching to the converted, but it's no great shakes as secular entertainment.
  3. With an appealing lead in Cameron, and a nicely brisk pace, there's a decent, midlevel Apocalypse movie here. But be aware that you will have to peel away several pages of the Bible to get to it.
  4. For all its intimations of fire and brimstone, the film isn't remotely frightening, and the high-school-level acting doesn't help.
  5. 25
    A slow-moving, dirt-dull narrative crammed with clunky expository dialogue and obscure Biblical references.
  6. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    Watching Left Behind's plodding screen adaptation may make you feel the Deity has already abandoned us to a shockingly dull post-apocalypse.
  7. The loosely scripted story is further burdened with clunky dialogue and performances, shoddy continuity.

    Read the book of revelation! and you will see that this movie is total mess! 2 god whitenesses hanging by the wailing wall doing nothing??? What is that? I think this whole theory of pre-tribulation rapture is for lazy Christians who is afraid to stand for their faith! "Let the other unbelievers will do our work for us!". Only thing that i like was that "unbelievers" ware actually whitnessing while most of Christian today just waiting for a rapture. Expand

    Reduces Christianity to glorified fire insurance for the afterlife or whenever the cooks manage to Immanentize the Eschaton. Where's the Christ in this Christianity? Expand

    Pfft. If MST3K had only stuck around for a few more years, maybe we would have seen this movie get the treatment it deserves. The lame pop song playing over the end credits is the topping to this cheesecake. Expand
