Storyline

Those left behind face war, famine, plagues, and natural disaster so devastating that only one in four people will survive. Odds are even worse for the enemies of the Antichrist and his new world order. Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, Bruce Barnes and Chloe Steeleband together to form the Tribulation Force. Their task is clear, and their goal is nothing less than to stand and fight against the enemies of God during the seven most chaotic years the planet will ever know.

Trivia

In one scene there's a sign in both English and Hebrew. The English says, "Do not cross! Violators will be shot" The Hebrew says exactly the same thing, but in English. The writers used Hebrew letters to create the same English words, and it is even read left to right, which is backwards in Hebrew. See more »

As usual, the 2nd coming is mostly for WASPs
8 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can appreciate that evangelical, rapture-focused Christians want their own entertainment, and that said entertainment probably won't have major-studio-level production resources to call upon. But this attempt to mix sermon and action-movie conventions panders so much to its audience--there are token minority characters, but the principals are thoroughly WASPy- -that genuine evangelical intent is hard to swallow. (Just check out the director's resume to see how deep his faith-based focus is.)

Christians of other ethnicities, let alone nationalities, are pretty well ignored. The antichrist is a stereotypical evil Russian mogul, as in so many mainstream genre flicks of recent years. If Jesus is coming back, surely he won't be so exclusively concerned with middle-class U.S. whites. (This even extends to soldiers protecting the Wailing Wall under orders--our heroes' angelic protectors fry the poor guys via fireballs radiating from their eyes. So, God views them as sinners?)

This movie (among others like it) preaches to the target audience by suggesting the people who will primarily be saved--and are most worthy of God's direct interventions in End Times--are those just like "us." Meaning just like the film's mostly Caucasian, mostly Heartland consumers.

This earnest yet cheesy middle-chapter in the "Left Behind" saga ends on a wimpy note that practically requires follow-up. As indeed it got.
