    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.

    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.
