Editorial Reviews

On an international flight, journalist Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron from GROWING PAINS) and pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson, the formor Marlboro Man) discover that several passengers have simply vanished. Soon, it becomes clear that millions of people have disappeared off the face of the Earth, and they take it upon themselves to uncover the root of this perturbing mystery.LEFT BEHIND: THE MOVIE, based on the the successful series of Christian novels written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, could be one in a long tradition of extravagant classic Hollywood biblical epics. It steadily and deliberately delivers the same themes shared by older Christian pictures, but it benefits from more modern visual trappings. LEFT BEHIND might also be compared to another group of films made in the 1990s that are oriented towards fundamentalist Christians. That group, like LEFT BEHIND, could be placed specifically in the Last Days sub-category.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it's great! November 23, 2000
By A Customer
I did not buy this movie in order to pick over the special effects (which, by the way, I have no complaints with)or complain that it couldn't compare in quality to all of Hollywood's big budget movies. This is a movie with a message and it comes across loud and clear to me. I've watched this movie almost daily since I got it and each time I see something that I didn't see before. When it hits the theater next Feb I plan on loading up the van with a bunch! And for those who complain that Christian movies don't compare with the ones that Hollywood generates, thank God! Because you spend more doesn't make it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! October 24, 2000
I saw Left Behind last night, and I found myself watching it twice! This is by far the very BEST christian film I have ever seen! This is a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the begining till the end. I thought the book was good, but the Movie is GREAT! The movie differs slightly from the book storyline, but it really enhances the story. Great script! I am certain you'll enjoy this movie!
I only wish the DVD had the widescreen instead of full frame :0(

4.0 out of 5 stars Made For TV? November 3, 2000
Being a Christian, I am intrigued by the Left Behind series and it's fictional interpretation of Revelations. While the first Left Behind DVD was enjoyable, I found the lack of captioning and 5.1 or DTS sound options to be a minus. On the other hand, the script, acting, and the theme were a very good interpretation of the original book. To be able to interpret each book and put them into a movie format would most likely mean a film of about 5-6 hours per film. The screenplay was well condensed and did raise the all-important, soul searching questions that have plagued non- believers consciences since God created mankind.
I am not sure if the material will sell well at the theaters, but may do extremely well as a TV miniseries. No sex, no drinking or drug use is exactly the type of TV materials this country needs more of. I can't wait for the next release!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let this one be Left Behind December 7, 2000
You don't have to be a Christian to enjoy Left Behind. Nor do you have to even read the books as some have said. I'm a Non-Christian who has not read the books and I absoulutely loved this movie.
Left Behind is the story about mankind's last days on Earth and what causes it's destruction. Delicately touching upon biblical verses of Earth's final days, Left Behind takes us through a journey of those left behind after many people have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Amoung the cast is Kirk Cameron who plays Buck Williams, a journalist witnessing first hand these odd days and doubting with everyone else that they are happening.
While Left Behind certainly contains Christian and bibilical views, it is also certainly not attempting to convert non-Christians with it's material. It's a movie with a well writen story, and not intended for only Christian audiences, but for all.
The movie isn't perfect, nothing is. But with a story so interesting and that could possibly happen, Left Behind has all it needs in it's story and suberb acting by it's stars. Don't be put off by its above average special effects that you see near the beginning of the film, for they more than aducately do the job. Like I said, it isn't about special effects, it's about story.
I strongly encourage everyone to purchase this movie, watch it and then spread the word. The success of this film relys upon the word of mouth generated by those who see the film on video before it's release to theaters in February 2001. The more people that spread the word, the more screens it will open on. Left Behind is well worth your time, don't leave it behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Effort, good movie November 13, 2000
As an avid fan of the book series, I absolutely had to get my hands on this DVD. What I found was a modestly budgeted film with slightly above average acting. The movie itself isn't exactly that impressive. I rated it with five stars- not because it is loaded with special effects, superb acting, and a multi-billion dollar budget. It is a high quality movie, and has some great shots in it. I rated it so highly because I enjoyed it and firmly believe in what it stands for. I am so tired of all the violent, lustful, and evil acts portrayed in the movies today. A lot of courage and effort went into this movie, and for that, I applaud them. I hope that this film will send a message to Hollywood that people enjoy wholesome movies with quality content more than high budget films with no morality. I can only suggest that you give it a chance. It certainly is a stand out movie with a stand out message that needs to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sightful movie about the end days September 8, 2000
Based on the best seller series, Left Behind is a sightful movie about the end days. The producers in cooperation with Tim Lahaye/Jerry B. Jenkins bring you a movie about hopes and fears. I've noticed from the start that this DVD will rock the world. As one of the best christian movie ever made, it reminds us that we have little time to act. It answers so many questions that people often ask.
I found the book to be very enticing and if the book is good, the movie is better, especially on DVD. This movie brings all the facts, all the revelations, and all the struggle in one action-filled adventure to eternity. If you're a christian, you will find this movie fulfilling and if you're not a christian, then watch it anyways because it makes you ask the big question, "Is God really there?"
