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.

an excellent upgrade!
8 January 2006 | by jcherinSee all my reviews

This movie is very well put together. The look and feel are excellent. I think that even those people that were excited by the Left Behind series becoming a movie but maybe were a bit disappointed by the first and/or second movie, need to see this one. I'm not sure that it will truly appeal to a large, non-believing audience, as it doesn't completely 'tell' the viewer the background to the story...although the script tries.

I personally enjoyed Kirk Cameron's role this time -- since 1) he now looks old enough and worldly-wise enough to be Buck (sorry, he was not cast well in the first two movies) 2) Kirk Cameron's explanation of the gospel is excellent and heart-felt and 3) being surround by some excellent actors, everyone characters came more alive. I believe that the director had a good, solid hand on where to place the individual actors so that they showed strength as part of the ensemble.

I really look forward to the continuing saga of Left Behind!
