Thank God it was good

Aside from movies based upon the life of Jesus Christ, there hasn't been one good Christian film. Until now.

Left Behind II is based on the events right after Left Behind, throwing us deeper into the slowly changing ruled by mastermind Nicolae Carpathia, who is quick to gain power.

The performances are better in the film; its nothing special, sadly, but is not so cheesy. It has its clichés, but in the end, you've forgotten them. My favorite was Gordon Currie, who has so perfectly become the Antichrist in the book series that it'd be difficult to see another in the role (aside from maybe Cillian Murphy).

But when it comes to sticking to the book, the movie does sidetrack a bit. The love story is shortened significantly and the entire ending of the book is left out, but it sticks much closer to the book than the first.

Some of the newer scenes were awesome, my personal favorite being Carpathia shaking the hand of Rayford Steele. The scene is so creepy and thrilling, I'm glad they decided to add it in. The showdown is also nice, although I didn't like the whole angel subplot during it.

Overall, I am glad to say the movie is good. Certainly not great but it so much better than its predecessor or successor, and should've been released on the silver screen. 6.9/10.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

This story follows the rapturous "Left Behind" (2001). "A week after millions of people vanish into thin air, a desperate world turns to United Nations President Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie). Basking in the new found adoration and trust of the people, Carpathia seems to have the entire planet at his command. But thousands of miles away, a small group, aware of Carpathia's true and sinister identity, is trying desperately to share their knowledge with anyone who will listen," according to the DVD sleeve description.

"Calling themselves the 'Tribulation Force', world-renowned television journalist Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron), Pastor Bruce Barnes (Clarence Gilyard), airline pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson) and his 20-year-old daughter, Chloe (Janaya Stephens), embark on a dangerous mission to open the eyes of the world to the truth." Readers, this will be my last user review… may God strike me down if these "Left Behind" movies aren't pure trash… Really... This entry serves only to pooh-pooh its own Christian revelations.

A incredibly worthy sequel!!!

I know the Left Behind series (both books and movies) gain an enormous amount of criticism!! There is far too much close mindedness for people to be silent. I would love to cover all that right now but I am critiquing a film...a film and film series I love, and a series of books I am very passionate about (doesn't mean religiously just honest to goodness LOVED THEM!!) After seeing the very well attempted Left Behind, I anxiously awaited the follow up sequel. The first time I saw it I admit I was disappointed but after seeing it again...most recently immediately after the first film I realize how great a sequel it is. A new director in the form of Bill Corcoran flawlessly connects the two films. The entire cast from the original returns and I think they all perfected their roles.

Left Behind II is a much deeper, moralistic message. More "preachy" some might say. Nonetheless they keep the story and the characters in tact and you keep riveted. The sequel is far more drama than action making it more slow paced but also furthers the story a great deal. The second book was chalk full of events and they tried to apply as much of that as they could in the second film. The performances are far more emotional and dramatic, and it will really tug your heart strings. You'll feel the emotion and that's awesome!! Once again they are working with a similarly small budget but do a decent job nonetheless. There is nothing less mainstream than a Christian film but they do their best to make it interesting for anyone and I think they succeed wonderfully. There is a such a great story here and the actors are all good enough to watch. Kirk Cameron is much better in the sequel as Cameron "Buck" Williams. His romance and relationship with Chloe Steele, played once again very nicely by Janaya Stephens is well thought out and really one of the focus' of the film. They have great chemistry although I think it's quite a bit held back because of Cameron's real life marriage to Chelsea Noble who plays Hattie Durham in the film. She also does a good job...some will say she is annoying, and campy and needy but for those of us who have read the book Hattie Durham is exactly that!!! Therefore she's perfect!! Brad Johnson continues to impress playing Rayford Steele and Clarence Gilyard Jr. as their spiritual "leader" Pastor Bruce Barnes is good as well although a little monotone at times.

Despite the drama and emotion they still do pull off some great action scenes and some great locations from around the world. The story is not quite as complex as it was in the original but if you watch these two films together you'll enjoy them both a great deal. So far this is a great series of films and certainly some of the best independent film making I've ever seen. It's not for everyone and you will get intense critics decided on how people should or would react when millions disappear. Funny how anyone would know that?? I guess if the Christians are right about all this we'll find out won't we?? The films are intriguing and both of them are brilliant, I love them...for myself...for anyone else I just don't know but for me they are amazing!!! 8.5/10
