In one chaotic moment, millions of people around the world suddenly disappear leaving their clothes, wedding rings, eye glasses and shoes in crumpled piles. Mass confusion hits while vehicles suddenly unmanned veer out of control, fires erupt and hysteria breaks out as the living stare in disbelief and fear at the empty places where their loved ones were just seconds before. This is the rapture that God has planned as the first sign to begin the unraveling of the end of time.
Left Behind: The Movie
Dove "Faith-Friendly" - Recommended for ages 12 and over.
"Left Behind: The Movie" has been bathed in prayer, before, during, and after its production. It contains two very important messages: God is ultimately in charge, and we must accept Jesus Christ as Savior. The film’s star, Kirk Cameron, formerly of television sitcoms, “Growing Pains” and “Kirk,” still has a youthful appearance that reminds one of a student who’s running late for his high school gym class. Brad Johnson lacks the charm and persuasive depth to meet the demands of his onscreen role. Chelsea Noble, Clarence Gilyard and Janaya Stephens fare much better, in spite of a few stilted scenes and occasional awkward dialogue. In the final analysis, the powerful story in "Left Behind" makes up for the film’s minor flaws and does a great job of holding the viewers’ attention – not to mention capturing their imaginations.
Sex: It is implied that one of the main characters has thought about committing adultery before his conversion.
Violence: Attacking planes explode in mid air; two men are shot and killed at close range.
Drugs: Two minor characters smoke; the main character has a beer in a bar before his conversion
