‘Left Behind ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
This movie follows the epic story of a small group of survivors after millions of people suddenly vanish and the world is plunged into chaos and destruction.
Without warning hundreds of millions of people around the globe simply vanish – including every child. All that remains are their clothes and belongings and chaos and terror like never before. Suddenly unmanned vehicles crash and burn. Emergency forces everywhere are depleted. Gridlock, rioting and looting are rampant with no one to help or give answers.
For RAY STEELE, the pilot of a jumbo jet, it means trying to calm his hysterical passengers who saw loved ones vanish before their eyes. It also means trying to land his damaged plane when every airport is jammed with burning wrecks and while wishing that he could talk to his family one last time.
For CHLOE, Ray’s daughter back on the ground, it means trying to find her younger brother who disappeared from her very arms. Fighting through a post-apocalyptic landscape, Chloe makes it home but her mom is gone too. Despair and rage rule the day.
This movie will begin a movie series based on the bestselling books!
Prepare to be surprised by this ‘Left Behind’ masterpiece. Expect to be on the edge of your seat. Here were some highlights:
- I was surprised at how many great actors were in this film and a great casting job for each role.
- Moments of REAL laughter. Totally unexpected.
- Intense, edge of your seat moments and GREAT special effects.
- The very first show of rapture was BRILLIANTLY done. So unique.
- Some interesting side characters that added to the overall film.
- The quote, “If you look hard enough you’ll see what ever you want”, even if you have to ignore a lot.
- Chloe’s statement to the pastor is fantastic. You’ll have to pay attention to catch it.
- There is at least 1 really touching moment.
Although there wasn’t a lot of Christianity in this film per se, we didn’t want to see this movie end. But when it did end, there was a surprise and we are looking forward to the sequel.
Martin Klebba, who plays one of the airline passengers is HILARIOUS. He really brought some great moments to this delightful film. Not sure if he’ll sneak his way into any of the sequels but I sure hope he does.
