Editorial Reviews

Part conspiracy theory and part religious message, Left Behind (based on the first in a series of runaway bestsellers by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins) is a passable, occasionally compelling thriller that turns the rapture and the ascendance of the Antichrist into something resembling a Robert Ludlum espionage potboiler. The beginning, though, is pure Stephen King: as morose pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson) steers his jet plane toward London, comely flight attendant Hattie Daniels (Chelsea Noble) informs him that a number of passengers have disappeared--at 37,000 feet, leaving their neatly pressed clothes behind. And they're not the only ones who've gone missing. The mass disappearances throw the world into chaos, and the sinisterly compelling Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie), head of the U.N., selflessly steps in to help broker peace among the world's nations. But is he as good intentioned as he seems? Turns out the appropriately named Mr. Carpathia is behind a plot to rule the world and control its food supply, and intrepid reporter Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron, better than you'd expect) is onto him--with a little help from some biblical prophecies. Suffering the problem that befalls most first installments in a series of books and movies, Left Behind busies itself with the task of introducing characters and setting up expository plot lines, and audiences may be frustrated by the lack of action--Rayford's somewhat labored crisis of faith takes up a good chunk of the film. Still, it's an intriguing premise that should satisfy fans of the novel and possibly pick up a few more converts along the way (be warned, though, this is a modestly budgeted film that looks more like a cable TV movie than the latest James Bond extravaganza). And, if like a fair number of the film's characters, you can't figure out that someone named "Nicolae Carpathia" is a bad guy, then, well, you need to bone up on your evil villains. --Mark Englehart

Arguably the most interesting and compelling feature in the Left Behind trilogy, Left Behind II: Tribulation Force finds the series' major characters--television journalist Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron), passenger jet captain Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson), his daughter Chloe (Janaya Stephens), and Pastor Bruce Barnes (Clarence Gilyard)--forming the core of a group dedicated to infiltrating and disrupting operations of the Anti-Christ, i.e., Nicolae Carpathia (a scary Gordon Currie), who has become leader of a world government. Meanwhile, humankind looks increasingly desolate and bleak, as the reality sinks in that hundreds of millions of people who suddenly vanished--including all the world's children--in the last film are not coming back. Veteran television director Bill Corcoran makes much of his scant resources to paint an apocalyptic vision, and when the film gets to indulge in some nifty effects (a pair of fire-breathing prophets--literally), the result is powerful. Drama, relationships, character development, and performances are quite smooth and should appeal to Christian and non-Christian viewers alike. --Tom Keogh

Third in the series, Left Behind: World at War finds the post-Rapture Earth an even bleaker place than in the previous movies. As the Antichrist himself, Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie), uses his newfound powers as head of the world government to bring war and plague on every nation, the American president (Louis Gossett Jr.) teams with a Christian resistance fighter (Jessica Steen) to try to stop him. Meanwhile, series hero Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) discovers that Carpathia's biological front in a coming apocalypse is particularly devious: Freshly published Bibles are carrying a deadly disease ravaging thousands--and may very likely claim Buck's new bride. Buck's father-in-law, pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson), has problems of his own facing the not-inconsiderable temptations of former flight attendant Hattie Daniels (Chelsea Noble), now one of Carpathia's many lovers. Directed by Craig R. Baxley (Rose Red), Left Behind: World at War is particularly crisp and effective drama, even when the action stops, as it often does, for many of the principals to pray for guidance. Charles Martin Smith (The Untouchables), not seen often enough these days, has a brief but powerful part as the U.S. vice-president. --Tom Keogh

I read all the Left Behind books in a whirlwind. I found the movies just as exciting. I watched all three back to back. Very moving and genuine. Should bring everyone to their knees - praise God! I hope more Christian-based movies are released.

we bought them, and now am buying the box set as a gift. I saw "Left Behind" a few years ago, and while the movie obviously did not have the benefit of a large budget like so many Hollywood movies, the cast was good and the message was clear. It's a very powerful movie, and one that I have heard so many people rave about. Obviously, people liked it, and bought it, because you can tell with each movie in the series that their budget is bigger. After I saw the second movie in the set, I thought it was my favorite - until I saw the third. They each just leave you wanting to see more - just like they should. Definitely try it out.

I am on the last (12th) book, "Glorious Appearing" after having devoured the Left Behind bound series. I had seen the first movie, "Left Behind" years before and enjoyed it, although it did leave you hanging. I purchased the books and read them and at the same time purchased the 3 DVD's. I just finished watching all 3 movies. I was disappointed. The script somewhat followed the books, but then by World at War, it went off into its own world. The characters I grew to love in the books were almost one-dimensional in the movie. If you watch the special features you will see interviews with various celebrities about the movie. I wish they had made more of the story into the movie. Janaya ("Chloe") mentioned how long everything took, but I was surprised, and had to reverse it to hear it again, to learn that it was only 6 weeks of filming. After seeing the 95 minute features I can believe it. This had so much potential, but dropped the ball. Although I must say, the actors were terrific! Everyone matched the descriptions and personalities in the books. Gordon Currie was incredible as the Antichrist! I caution you to read the books first, then watch the movies. If not, you will not appreciate the deeper meaning to them. You don't even need to be religious really, just appreciate the remarkable insights. Thank you Kirk Cameron for helping to bring the story to life, except it should have been more alive.

I am a big fan of the Left Behind series. I think that it helps to paint a picture of what life just might be like when the time of tribulation comes. It helps to bring the book of Revelations to life in a way most can understand.

I love the movies. The characters I believe have been cast well and I hope that the actors playing the major rolls will continue on with future movies.

My only problem with it is that I wish someone with Mel Gibson's finances were making the movie. The quality is a bit low budget and I believe that if it were better financed it would be better quality and higher box office ratings (like The Passion) and therefore reach more people. I also wish that the movies would follow the books a little closer than they do. Other than that...I have only high praises for the series and hope to see all the books made into movies...and I will own them all!

This is a very good collections of all three Left Behind DVDs and with the special DVD it is worth getting. It is good to get not only for the Christians you know but with the way the DVDs are made they are great for non-Christians as well. These can be used for evangelism and outreach to your friends. Worth buying and worth the price.

My husband and I are truck drivers and listen to audiobooks all the time. We listened to the Left Behind series read by Jack Sondricker and loved them. He has specific voices for each character...just brings the stories to life!!

When the Left Behind movie came out, I couldn't purchase it fast enough!! The audiobooks were so good that I just knew the movie would be wonderful! Boy was I wrong! Within the first 1/2 hour, I knew I was going to be very disappointed! The whole movie was rushed....jamming I don't know how many of the books together...things in the movie that never should have been there...Buck never went to the house with Ray...what the heck?

When the second movie came out, I gave them one more chance. By the middle of that movie, I was sorry I every bought them! I gave them to my nephew who is Wiccin and was wanting Christian movies to watch.

The movies are probably very good if you have never read the books, but if you have already read (or listened) to the books, leave the movies will just be very disappointed!

I know that movies have to be shortened in order to get everything in, but COME ON! Really? They couldn't have made more sequels....we have a ton of Halloween sequels that show nothing but massive violence, but they couldn't bother to make sequels to movies that have an actual message?

It's been over 5 years since I saw the first one, but I still won't watch them again. The books got you involved with the characters and brings prophecy and the end times to made me want to learn more about the rapture and what is going to happen to non-Christians that will be left behind. The movies....just too rushed, like they couldn't get everything said fast enough.
