Those left behind face war, famine, plagues, and natural disaster so devastating that only one in four people will survive.

Alternate Versions

The DVD version contains deleted/extended/alternate scenes:
  • "Ray At Chris' Apartment" = Rayford goes to Chris' apartment and asks him if he wants to go to church, by approaching the question in the form of a new job offer Bruce told Ray about. Chris answers "no", but remains skeptical at this point.
  • "Chloe with Burned Fireman" - The burned fireman tells Chloe he lost a sister in the rapture and asks her if she lost any family members. The fireman notices the picture of Chloe w/ Buck and ask about her boyfriend (meaning Buck). She answers, saying that he's still here.
  • "4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse" (extended scene) - more about Pastor Bruce Barnes' church lecture on the events of the Tribulation and for anyone to step forward and accept Christ.
  • "Angelic Woman at the Candlelight Vigil" (extended scene) - As Rayford heads over to Chris' apartment, the Angelic Woman sings "Amazing Grace" to try and comfort those who lost family members during one of the many Candlelight Vigils. Her last verse (in voice over) leads to a transition to Chris at his apartment spinning his gun.
  • "Nicolae Rages Against God" (alternate ending) - Same ending as movie, but in different angle. Nicolae sits on his desk, in a defeated state. Hattie arrives and comfort him. Nicolae tells her to leave, and after she closes the door to his private room (in his jet plane called Global Community One), proceeds to curse God, telling him that it is his time, and not Yours. Original movie ending has his speech display both power and anger.

Good. Not Great, but good.
25 November 2002 | by StarseneyesSee all my reviews

I JUST finished watching this movie about ten minutes ago. It's been a while since I've seen the first movie, or finished reading the tenth book, let alone the first or second. I believe I finished those in early April 2002, so it's been a while! Nevertheless, I enjoyed this film. I was extremely happy to see the scene at the Steele house with Buck and Chloe figuring out their misunderstanding, and the cookie scene!!! If I remember correctly that scene was meant to be in the first movie, but I'm not sure. It's been so long!

It was a good movie. I agree that it wasn't as fast-paced as the first movie, but I found myself excited and caught up in some of the smaller stories, especially that of Chris. His story seemed so real to me, and as I watched him twirl that gun I called out to Rayford "hurry up!"

The acting in this movie was phenomenal. I understand that due to time constraints and complexity the movie couldn't stick exactly to what the book had detailed. It was still a good movie on its own. The acting was wonderful, truly great. The plot dragged a few times, but was still good. The emotions were phenomenal.

I was a bit confused by the angelic woman though. I understand what she represented, but it seemed a bit un-natural. I did enjoy the dream sequence though, and Rayford tearing down the pictures of his family because it hurt him so badly. That was so close to my heart, having seen a family member go through that process.

It was a good film. I do recommend renting it, because it's a true joy. Though the movie has its flaws, it's still a solid movie. You begin to develop a relationship with the characters as they develop relationships with one another. I'll rate it a 7 or 8 out of ten. It was perfect, and had flaws, but still a solid movie.
