Nic Cage probably did this movie to pay off a LED TV or something, its THAT bad...
I don't really read reviews or pay a lot of attention to the ratings of movies prior to watching it but in this case I wish I had. I would've save myself the pain of sitting through this movie. This movie was terrible from the start and in in the end, it was one of those movies you wish you can delete from your memory banks. Apparently the first thing people would do minutes after the rapture is start looting the closest shopping mall and try to rob one another.
Putting aside the religious tone of the movie, Nicolas Cage played the worst portrayal of a pilot that I've ever seen in my life. Nicolas Cage's acting was almost like a bad impression of himself. Give this one a miss, I guarantee that you'll enjoy watching YouTube for 110 minutes instead of watching this rubbish.
Maybe I'm just a sucker for movies, but I actually enjoyed this one. It's very different from the book, but that's actually a good thing; despite its constant presence on the bestseller lists, the original Left Behind books were rather shoddily written. This movie actually kept me interested through the end, which isn't what I was expecting from such a critically panned flick. Granted, most of Pure Flix's films are better than this, but I still liked it.
Content Concerns: I won't do my usual listing, but I will say that there were some surprising misuses of God's name, as well as one s-word. Emotional intensity and violence are seen throughout. Of course Rapture theology is present.
Evangelical intention lost in cheesy confusion.
Sad to say that the story didn't do as much as the Kirk Cameron version which I preferred.
