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.

Don't be Left Behind...Watching this movie!!!!, 23 May 2006
Author: nitropr45 from Puerto Rico

This movie is a terribly bad literal understanding of the bible texts. Maybe they tried to do too much with the book series and frankly not even Louis Gosset Jr. can save this awful movie. Anyway this "additional return of the Lord movie" will enchant mostly those already obsessed with this kind of "Jack Chickesque" stories. The production has some value and give them credit for trying, but this material has little redemption to represent. I will not propose an end times treatise here. It is just that the whole notion of the movie is plain wrong. A president helping the anti-Christ, realizing what he has done, fighting him back. This requires elaborate imagination as biblically it does not stands scrutiny. And that is the flaw of the movie and the whole franchise. Escathological scrutiny will have you, at best, laughing at the premise. Also their literal view seems biased against the Catholic Church. Fo a good understanding of Tim La Hayes series check out Carl Olson's books on the subject.
