I mean, come on! This is just really very bad: 1. The twist at the end depends on some wild-eyed ReichWing conspiracy theory that the UN is "out to get us white christians....for our money" I mean, that's far fetched, even for reichwingers these days. conservatives are anti-UN because they racist think it's ONLY about white Westerners giving money to dark skinned Africans. The UN is an organisation which has been VERY good to the USA, and it has a veto.What's funny is that the movie want to make itself look sane by making the circle-the-wagons guy look bad, by attacking a believe that many reichwingers have: the government is out to get you, so you better arm yourself to the teeth.
I'm not quite sure why this version was made in the first place, there's nothing new no novel "revelations" 4400 and TAKEN are light years ahead in terms of production values, writing and acting (same basic story without pretending there's any truth in it) If you're looking for actual miracles this film makes Left Behind 2000 almost watchable in comparison. I wouldn't want to write off the young actors on a single viewing as the script is truly terrible and I doubt Streep, Oldman or DiNero could have rung anything out of it. Maybe they can put this behind them dust themselves down and start again. I understand that I'm not the target audience for this film and it is in fact thinly veiled propaganda, But that's no reason to make a bad film
Not with high hopes I watched this movie expecting some typical sy-fy channel level 90 minutes of mediocrity to pass the time. What I didn't expect was some a bible thumping story line that was so clearly funded by some right wing propagandists that would become a an hour and a half Christianity PSA. Now this isn't to take away from the amateur acting or the college level production values. This film is just all around terrible. So much so that after nearly 500 reviews on IMDb, I confirmed my email just to write a review for this film alone. I can enjoy a campy film for it's authenticity to be cheesy, but this one dressed up like a scifi thriller only to be a rapture story with a meaningless cliff hanger, no real resolution or climax I had no choice but to give it one star.
This is a very nice reboot of the Left Behind story. The young actors and actresses do a wonderful job that will appeal especially to teenagers and young adults, but is equally enjoyable for audiences of all ages. This is only the beginning of the Left Behind story, and will need several sequels to finish the entire story line. The story develops into a intriguing love triangle reminiscent of the Twilight series that will appeal to young adults, and in similar fashion, is left unresolved by the end of the movie. Tom Everett Scott does a spectacular job portraying the crazy evil person and leaves you with a creepy scary feeling every time he appears. His scenes add a horror thriller thread to the plot, unusual and unique for a Christian themed movie, and will appeal to horror movie fans. It was surprising and interesting to see Tim LaHaye's grandson Randy LaHaye playing the role of the anti-Christ. The film is dedicated to Tim LaHaye and his epic legacy. An very enjoyable movie even for non-Christians.
