Movie Review: Left Behind

Left Behind is an American apocalyptic thriller film directed by Vic Armstrong and written by Paul LaLonde and John Patus. It is based on the novel of the same name written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. It is a reboot of Left Behind: The Movie. The film was released on October 3, 2014 and was heavily panned by critics. To date, the movie has earned a little over $12 million, which is still lower than its $16 million budget.

The story goes like this: A group of survivors are left behind after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world is plunged into chaos and destruction. Among them is airline pilot Rayford Steele who tries to deal with his hysterical passengers. He also has to try to land his plane when airports are filled with wrecks, as he wonders about his family. Journalist and unbeliever Buck Williams struggles to understand this devastating event. Ray's daughter, Chloe, also an unbeliever, struggles to find her mother and brother. These people come to realize that the event was the Rapture where God saves his people before the seven years of Tribulation and all children and Christians are saved.

Left Behind is of action, sci-fi, thriller genre, which runs for approximately 110 minutes. It's rated PG-13 for some thematic elements, violence, peril, and brief drug content. I had no idea that the movie was about the Rapture. I actually found the thought of it very interesting but the plot of the movie was just dragging all throughout. There was no conclusion to the predicament and I had a headache trying to understand what was happening in the movie. The acting was poor, the effects sucked, and the film, in general, seemed to have no direction at all. I do not recommend this movie to anyone as it is a waste of money unless you're just killing time and had nothing else to watch.

RATING: 2.5 out of 5 STARS
