Storyline

It's been eighteen months since Nicolae Carpathia's rise to power, and has been captivating the whole world, including President Fitzhugh. There are some far away, who suspect he's something more, the prophesied Antichrist. After a failed attempt on the President's life, Fitzhugh must call on Buck and Carolyn Miller to uncover the mystery. Meanwhile, the rest of the Trib Force group: Rayford Steele, daughter (and now Buck's wife) Chloe, Pastor Bruce Barnes and the newest member Amanda White to uncover the mystery. Soon the lives of President Fitzhugh and the Tribulation Force will be connected in ways they couldn't have imagined. Written by cgw@mac.com

Quotes

[first lines]
President Gerald Fitzhugh: Funny thing about a dream: When you're asleep, no matter what happens, no matter how crazy it might be, it all seems to make sense. I was there when millions of people vanished off the face of the earth. But I didn't wake up. I cheered as the world came together in the name of peace. Race, politics, and religion no long mattered.

Very different from the books but still good
17 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first two films were closely based on the first two books of the Left Behind series. There were numerous differences, but overall they were relatively accurate. This one however is very different. I would almost describe this as being inspired by the Left Behind series, rather than based on it. Like the book, it's about World War 3, but it takes place quite differently. Only a handful of events are even remotely similar to events in the book. The double wedding is just about the only event that truly matches that of the book.

This doesn't mean that the movie isn't any good. It contains a lot of interesting and exciting original events. Part of the reason why it's so different is probably because it only covers a very small portion of the book, so they had to come up with a lot of new events, which they did pretty well. But I think it would've been better if they had covered the third book instead.

Be warned that this movie is a lot more violent than the first two. This is by far the darkest and most violent Christian film I've ever seen. Most of the movie (about 80%) takes place either at night, or in creepy dark rooms. There's not a lot of blood, but several people (both good and bad) are killed. It's almost hard to believe that a movie of this nature could be a true Christian film with a gospel message, but it definitely is, probably at least partly thanks to Kirk Cameron. I do enjoy it. I wish they could've done another sequel.
