Left Behind

Rated PG-13 105 minutes 2014

This fundamentalist SF, based on a best-seller by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, is (or was) billing itself as “The Christian Entertainment Event of 2000,” but seems perfectly timed to coincide with the ascension to office of George W. Bush. It's a clunky effort Bush could have written and directed. Over 142 million people on the planet—including all the children—have vanished and gone to heaven because they're true believers. Meanwhile, the Antichrist turns out to be Russian, proving that Joseph McCarthy must have been right all along. The credited director is Vic Sarin and the credited writers are Allan McElroy, Paul Lalonde, and Joe Goodman. Among the cast are Kirk Cameron, Chelsea Noble, Clarence Gilyard, and Brad Johnson, doing what they can with hopeless if weirdly sincere material. 95 min.
