Overview

In the Holy Bible, the Book of Revelations speaks of an event called "The Rapture," in which it is believed God will call those who have been saved to Heaven, while those who have not repented their sins will remain on Earth. Authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins have written a series of novels based upon the premise of how the Rapture would affect ordinary people in the modern world, and Left Behind is the first feature film to be adapted from their work. Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson) is an airline pilot whose relationship with his wife has gone sour; she responds by devoting more of her time and energy to the church, while he ponders having an affair with an attractive flight attendant, Hattie Durham (Chelsea Noble). In the midst of a flight to London, a number of their passengers mysteriously disappear, and chaos takes hold as a number of vehicles on the ground and in the air are suddenly unmanned. Meanwhile, Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron), a television journalist, is pondering the rash of sudden disappearances as he works on a report about Dr. Chaim Rosenzweig (Colin Fox), an Israeli scientist who has devised a formula that would make any soil on earth easy to cultivate. However, Cameron wonders if there's more to Rosenzweig than he first imagined when he discovers the doctor is in cahoots with two multi-millionaires who plan to broker the invention to promote their own agenda of international domination. Produced by Cloud Ten Productions, a Christian filmmaking concern, Left Behind was released with an unusual marketing strategy -- the film was made available on home video in October 2000, with a theatrical release scheduled to follow in February 2001.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
In one chaotic moment, millions people around the world suddenly disappear. Mass confusion hits while vehicles suddenly unmanned veer out of control, fires erupt and hysteria breaks out as the living stare in disbelief and fear at the empty places where their loved ones were just seconds before. This is the rapture, the first sign to begin the unraveling of the end of time. Kirk Cameron stars as a reporter who gets caught in the turmoil, experiencing the rapture first-hand. Left Behind: The Movie is an exciting, direct-to-video feature based on the bestselling book.
All Movie Guide
Any overtly religious film has the potential to provoke anger, especially among those expecting anti-Semitism to rear its unfortunate head. But Left Behind is a reasonably inoffensive way of addressing a plot that's not much different from a dozen mainstream studio films: a Biblical prophecy comes true in modern times. This is not to say the film inspired by the wildly successful fundamentalist novels is actually good; it just doesn't yield many controversial moments, nor many howlers, for those seeking a good laugh. In this way, it's a little boring. The B-level personnel and execution is never that distracting, even Kirk Cameron as Buck Williams, the hilariously named intrepid reporter. And it doesn't actually have much of the pious dialogue that polarizes audiences, until the very end. Before then, there's some genuinely unsettling stuff surrounding the disappearance of millions, who are later revealed to be the "true believers." Where the film goes wrong, losing awareness of its agenda, is in the spiritual awakenings of skeptics like Williams, and Brad Johnson's airline pilot. One of the basic tenets of religion is that it's based on faith, meaning the absence of observable proof, but these two central characters convert to godliness only because they're confronted by a preponderance of evidence. With the Bible's words borne out with blow-by-blow accuracy, the film makes it impossible not to attribute such scientific impossibilities to a heavenly influence. The sinners don't choose to repent -- logic forces them to, as an attempt to buy their way into Heaven. Maybe it's Left Behind's devout audience that should be frustrated, rather than its secular one.

    The worst.

    I read all the books at least 4 times each. If I saw the movie before I never would have been interested in the books.

    Where's the budget??

    I was so excited when I saw the movies for rent in Blockbusters. The movies were awful. I was so disappointed that I warned others not to rent or buy them. The movies were cheap and the wrong characters were cast. I imagined the main male characters to be tall; at least 5'11, medium build w/ dark hair (except Ben Judah). He should have been shorter and heavier. What happened to the special effects?? Had I seen the movie first I would have never read the books.

    A must see movie

    I have been one of the biggest fan of the Leftbehind the adult and also the kids series for more than a year now and this is the best movie i've seen in years and will always be my favorite movie. If you liked the movie go and read the Leftbehind series and if you have children get them interested in the Leftbehind the kids series. Even though I'm only 13 years old I understand both the Leftbehind movie and also the Leftbehind books. SEE IT!!Read it!!! DON'T BE LEFTBEHIND!!!!!

    Movie without books or budget - left wanting!!!

    I read all the books before seeing the movie. I was disappointed in the movie only because Cloud Ten Pictures didn't seem to have the budget to really do the story justice. However, I'm glad I purchased BOTH movies (I and II) because anyone I lend them to - WANT to read the books afterwards. The STORY IS GREAT - it just needs a good production budget to make it the 'epic' that it truly is. I recommend buying and having the movies on hand so you can use them to bring others to read the books, which will then give them a greater understanding of what is to come, and even bring them to Christ. This seems to be the greatest affect the books have, and I am so grateful for that. AMEN!!

    Keep in mind...

    Keep in mind that TriStar or MGM or Paramount wouldn't touch this screenplay and my hat is off to Cloud Nine for taking the chance on making this awesome book series into movies. They did what they could with what they had to produce a movie worthy of attention. No, it's not Star Wars, but is Lucas a Christian? We need to pray for a 'Mel Gibson' of sorts to take on this project and help the series live up to its potential! If God wills it, it'll happen!

    I wish every non-Christian could see this!

    I thought Left Behind (The Movie) and Left Behind (Tribulation Force II) were awesome. I am glad; however, that I read the books first so that I could better understand what was happening. A lot of facts are cut out due to the length of the movie -- but I still think both were fantastic. I look forward to the next movie. I hope it is in the works and will be released soon.

    Left Behind is left all behind movie

    When I watched the movie and I suddenly thought that movie was worse than any kind of B horror films. -The cast were too christains, need villians (a true christains will hire bad n good christains ). -(No captions? I only found one store with used closed caption and I bought it for my Deaf friends) (This version was 'special edition' on Left Behind part 1). -Too much Star Wars like (I don't like the look the fake airplanes and fires bombs.) -Left out too many scenes from orginial book. (Normally, I would expected to be like that, but I didnt expect it turns out to be one hour instant microwave film.) GET MGM TO CONTRACT WITH CLOUD NINE or Cloud nine will be stuck in cloud and smoke til high.

    eh..

    The movie did a bad job of sticking to the book, and you could tell they had a low budget. I got really mad when they turned things around and messed witht the characters because it took away some of the story. But it's still pretty cool to have a Left Behind movie.

    This movie did the book no justice

    If you read the book, then you would know that this movie did the book no justice at all. It was cheaply done. Main parts was left out, and main events turned around. It should have been made better.

    Not as good as the books

    When I first saw the commercials for this movie, I was so excited because it's about time Christian entertainment had some mainstream attention. But when I saw the movie I was disappointed because the story jumped around and many important elements of that made the book really great were left out.

    What a Box!

    I never actually got around to watching the movie per se, but the box it came in was awesome. It was three dimensional, ensuring a place for it amongst the realm of potentially perceivable and conceivable things. And perceive it I did! It was small enough to be ''taken in'' in one visual fell swoop, the first visual fell swoop ever so noted to my knowledge. If it was considerably more massive (like the size of a state or something) or alternatively, many millions of times smaller (like a protein strand), it may have been effectively unobservable. But the size was right. And the box also seemed to assume the temperature of the room it was in, which I assumed to be 70 degrees. Talk about technology! I have seen boxes before, but never one with a VHS tape in it. Well maybe I have. Anyway, there was even this guy on the box that looked kinda of like that guy from ''Growing Pains''; you know, he had a mullet--Kerry Kamel or something--I think he does a commercial for it or something. It also had the name of the movie on it, which was a nice touch, particularly for those who might be interested in watching the VHS tape inside. Seems to be about some sort of Christian version of the New Testament or something. Anyhoo, if you like boxes , this is definitely a must see.

    Fantastic Movie!!!!!

    I will never again listen to what the critics have to say about a movie. Left Behind was fantastic and the acting was superb. I could not take my eyes off the screen. Once I rewound the tape I immediately started it again. The critics do not yet know that they will be amongst the group that will be Left Behind.
