The countdown to Armageddon continues as world leader Nicolae Carpathia Gordon Currie brings peace to the world in this installment of the popular Left Behind series inspired by the best-selling books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. As world peace blossoms and the citizens of the planet attempt to put the horrors of war behind them, American president Gerald Fitzhugh Louis Gossett Jr. ensures his country that America will not stand in the way of the historical peace pact.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Born-again Christian Kirk Cameron may be the driving force behind spreading the word of God in the Left Behind movies, but his character, Buck Williams, spends the third installment sitting on his hands. And while it's a major dramatic flaw to give the protagonist nothing to do -- Buck literally sits around his apartment, wringing his hands, asking God for guidance -- this questionable narrative choice actually benefits Left Behind: World at War, because it gives us more of Lou Gossett Jr. Gossett Jr. plays the president of the United States, and after two movies' worth of earnest Christians pontificating about Jesus Christ, it's a breath of fresh air to see a secular man of action who just gets things done. Of course, you have to subtract some points by considering that this man is the president, yet the story involves him in numerous gun battles and fisticuffs -- activities that are usually left to lower-level staffers. Left Behind: World at War has this undeniable ridiculous factor throughout, but in general, it's a more polished cinematic product than its predecessors. Craig R. Baxley's film is shot and edited with veteran know-how, but it doesn't have the budget to depict the apocalyptic global collapse at the heart of the story, and the plot doesn't stand up to scrutiny. Still, neither does World at War contain the kind of howlingly funny gaffes that its critics might hope to find. For the second film in a row, Gordon Currie makes a seductively creepy villain, playing the Antichrist as a billionaire businessman who vaults himself into the role of world dictator. He's still standing at the end, so Cloud Ten Pictures will surely be compelled to make a fourth Left Behind movie -- regardless of whether the potential for profit actually supports that decision.

    Left Behind (World at War)

    The first two was ok, but they always save the best for last.I think that everyone should go and seen this movie. If you are not really a movie person, than go and read the book.

    Why Louis why?

    It's times when watching movies like this that I am glad that I am not a christian. I can't believe that Louis Gossett Jr. agreed to do something like this. This movie just reiterates that christians believe that anyone that doesn't believe in god is evil and doomed to eternal torment. The script was horrific, the cinematography atrocious, and the acting (aside from Louis) made me wonder if they just picked up people from the street to do this movie. Not even worth watching for a laugh.

    Interesting

    Not the greatest acting, writing, or cinematography and the storyline was absolutely abysmal. The type of plot is compelling for this age, though.

    Love 'Left Behind'

    This will definitely plant seeds about the final days which I believe we are in. We need more movies like this that talk about the Lord returning. Another terrific rapture film is 'Gone' about 3 lawyers who were left behind.

    VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTING

    The first two movies of the Left Behind series were excellent. I kept waiting and waiting for the next one which took years. I feel that I wasted my money buying this and for as long as they took to make and release it, they could have not done it all and no one would have missed it.
