Basic and Boring...

Once again I was deceived by the trailers as they made this movie look absolutely amazing; however, the trailers were the only good things that came out of this movie, and that says a lot.

First of all, we have the common Christian movie stereotype where some of a family is for God, and some of it is against God. Than we are provided with the frequent misunderstandings non-Christians face regarding the meaning of scripture due to Christians who have almost 0 theological education. So because the Christians fail to provide an adequate answer, the non-Christian lashes out. At least provide the audience with some level of complexity if you're going to have some kind of a theological debate. Your audience understands more than you think. Now if we could simply ignore the horrendous script not to mention the awful acting, we still have a movie full of stereotypes regarding non-Christians, Christians, Muslisms and even smaller people (just trying to be politically correct) which got old very fast.

But believe it or not, this is not even the worst part of the movie! The worst part is the terrible background music! To put it bluntly, it was GARBAGE!! It was so floaty and totally ruined the atmosphere. Now don't get me wrong, some movies require floaty music, but it would have made more sense to have music that was thematically apocalyptic. For example, Armageddon, Independence Day, or World War Z each had excellent pieces which blend perfectly into the atmosphere of the movie. The fact is even if the script to a movie is mediocre, having an excellent soundtrack can drastically improve the atmosphere. With a corny 80's saxaphone piece playing in the background, or cheesy orchestral music, which sounded digital, my wife and I walked out of the movie going "what did we just see?"

Though I am a pastor, I was hoping to be raptured during the movie. Do what I should have done and save your money by not seeing this film.

A rare film indeed

This film joins the exclusive list of movies --- only five or ten of 'em --- that are so incredibly bad that they're actually quite good. It is so enjoyable to watch one stupid scene cascade into the next; to express amazement that people actually allowed their names to be used in the credits. Again, it meets the important criterion of providing a hearty debate over coffee the next morning, pondering questions such as What was it all about? Where did all the people go? How can a jet collide with another yet survive? What dramatic purpose did the midget serve? Did it set a record for the number of errors in one scene? Does the "born again" movement really believe that such ludicrous nonsense promotes its cause. Indeed, if hell exists, it's probably a place where every theatre and every television station shows "Left Behind" over and over again for eternity. That concept is so intimidating , even the worst sinner will shout fervent Hallelujahs in an effort to evade such a ghastly fate. God's ways are indeed strange. If the motion picture academy had an Oscar for "Worst Movie", this would be the overwhelming winner for 2014. Likewise "Stupidest Film." It obviously will never be shown as an in flight movie. Airlines don't want passengers using the escape hatch in flight.

I have seen better films...

For those of you who are interested in the study of the art of film, and need an exercise in calibration and a baseline with which to tell good from bad, I can wholeheartedly recommend this movie as the best way to finally and definitively answer the question "what is the worst movie of all time?".

Nic Cage must either be dead broke, owe someone the favour to end all favours, or else some Producer has his children held captive.

A more wretched pile of steaming sputum was never coughed into existence, including during the 7 years that the Black Death swept across Europe.

The script was woefully primitive; better dialogue could easily have been written by encouraging a disease-riddled crow to randomly peck away at a typewriter for 5 minutes.

The acting was pathetic. Alarm bells should have rung for me when I saw a supporting cast comprising Chad Michael-Murray, some girl from Neighbours, a former American Idol contestant, and Marty McFly's mum off of Back to the Future.

The special effects looked like they were done on a Spectrum ZX81. The pacing and editing was turgid and lumbering, the soundtrack was uninspiring, amateurish and jarring, even the lighting was dull, flat, and caused me to squint like a coal miner resurfacing after a 40-hour shift.

The humour, or attempts at it, were uncomfortable and awkward, centering on a running gag of mis-trust between a Muslim and a Little Person getting angrier and angrier with each other which climaxes at the end with the Muslim booting the Midget down the inflatable escape slide of the plane. It sounds like it could be funny, even just for the slapstick. It isn't.

This affront to celluloid isn't even in the "so bad it's good" bucket, as even Christian film reviewers (for this IS the story of The Rapture after all) slammed this movie quicker than Judas turns snitch at the sight of some silver.

If someone offers you the chance to watch this movie, or as I did you see it pop up on Netflix and get suckered in by the Sci-Fi sounding synopsis and decide to give it a shot, I can highly recommend taking yourself into your back garden and liberally beating yourself around the genitals with a half-brick. It will be a less painful experience.
