Storyline

Rayford Steele is an airline pilot whose relationship with his wife has gone sour;he ponders having an affair with an attractive flight attendant, Hattie Durham. 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, a television journalist, is pondering the rash of sudden disappearances as he works on a report about Dr. Chaim Rosenzweig, an Israeli scientist who has devised a formula that would make any soil on earth easy to cultivate. However, Buck 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.

Great movie
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why so many people thought this was a bad movie. Some of the "Christians" who have reviewed it seem to dislike the Christian imagery present in many of the scenes (but given the movie's subject, is anyone really surprised at how ubiquitous it is?), and such prominence may lead non-Christians to view the film in a light of detached skepticism, which diminishes any film's audience appeal. The characters' conversions to Christianity had the proper emotional impact, and while some might tire of basically hearing "God is the answer," to nearly every question the characters have post-rapture, you have to keep in mind that Christians really do believe that God can help you out of any problem.

The movie is very true to the book. While leaving out minor details, it includes many of the prominent aspects of the book's apocalyptic nature, giving it an air of realism. I encourage anyone who wants to see the movie to read the series to find the whole story.

So yes, you may have to come off your high horse of being "above" such a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible's apocalyptic prophecies to enjoy this movie. But in the end, your experience will depend on whether or not you are able to put any anti-Christian inhibitions behind you.
