In an interview with patheos.com, Randy LaHaye spoke about portraying Nicolae Carpathia. He revealed that he was initially considering playing the part of Pastor Bruce Barnes until co-producer Dave Alan Johnson suggested that he play the Antichrist instead. Nicolae's UN speech in the film was written by Randy himself and was heavily inspired by President Barack Obama's real life UN speeches. When asked why his portrayal of Nicolae doesn't have a Romanian accent, Randy explained that they have given the Antichrist the supernatural ability to cause those who listen to hear him in their own native language. This is the reason why Nicolae sounds American to the American characters in the film. This power is not directly brought up in Vanished, but will be an element explored in future sequels. See more »
Bad theology but not entirely lacking in entertainment
Although I don't agree with the premise of the theology of this film, I thought it was well made for what it was and an entertaining story. I understand that some people who don't believe in God will come up with stuff about how terrible it is because they don't get it, but if you are willing to watch it without that kind of bias, you might get into the story and think it is worth your time somewhat, in spite of the main story line being representative of an American made theology.
