A worse disaster movie than Disaster Movie, and a strong contender for the worst movie of all time.

I was expecting a sci-fi thriller going into this: Millions of people suddenly disappear and Nicolas Cage has to land a plane... that's about all I gathered from the synopsis, but it sounded promising enough. I had no expectations going in. I didn't care; I like "bad" movies anyway: popcorn B-flicks, anything to keep my hands of my dick for a couple hours; and it has Nicolas Cage in it so how bad can it be? Let's just say this movie made me feel bad for having a dick. It made me upset to be alive. In fact the only solace I got from Left Behind is that I know I can never see a movie worse than it; it's that bad.

First things first: this is a rapture movie. Its dialogue consists of religious theological nonsense that pose more questions than answers, questions you shouldn't be thinking about during a movie in the first place. No one should be blaming Nicolas Cage for this abomination. It's not his fault it was bad - the only fault Cage holds is the fact that he accepted the role making fans of his aware that this movie exists (which, yeah, kind of a dick move Nic).

Nicolas Cage has the top billing but he's hardly the star. No one stars in this movie. The dialogue is so bad that nobody has anything to do. Even Cage sleepwalks through this one. The film has no flow whatsoever. It feels like a mishmash of melodramatic scenes with insufferable characters portrayed by horrid actors, backed by offensively bad writing, special effects, and every other conceivable thing you can think of. Hell, even the lighting sucks ass. It's a "thriller" with absolutely no tension or suspense; everything is so stiff and uncomfortable. This movie does literally everything wrong. The music is even awful. The girl's brother dissipates into her arms and smooth jazz Kenny G bullsh*t is playing in the background.

It takes half an hour for anything to happen in this movie. You're just bombarded with character after character, each one more boring than the last, for the sake of having some "impact" when the rapture actually happens; and there is none. You don't care what happens to any of these characters. None are developed - you know their title or job (father, daughter, wife, journalist, what have you) but there's no personality. Nothing driving them. They're just puppets used to get this pseudo-intellectual garbage on screen. Then when sh*t finally goes down, they get even stupider. Half of the people on the plane vanish, and the first thought that goes through their heads is "It's the captain's fault, let's get him! Surely he's behind this!" Really, they just lost a loved one and their first instinct is to form a mob and storm the cockpit. The only guy that can land the plane is the one guy they antagonize. Smart.

In a way though, they're right. It is Cage's fault this movie was made. Of the $16 million budget probably $15 million was for Cage to show up. On the bright side, Left Behind is the new bottom of his career. There is no production value here - just pure, unadulterated, toxic sh*t. They made God the villain in this movie; do I need to say more?

I had to get this rant off my chest so I can continue my life never thinking of this sh*tpile again. It's not even so bad it's funny; it's simply horrendous. This movie doesn't deserve to be read about, let alone watched, so please spare yourselves. If you ended up paying money for this movie, then may God have mercy on your soul.

Secular and Christian Critics AGREE! "Left Behind" Stinks!

When you start reading the reviews of a film, and it's compared to "Sharknado", "Birdemic" and that 1970 groan-worthy classic "Airport"….you have to wonder what the hell Nic Cage was thinking, and just how broke he was to accept this painfully bad pay check.

Ah, but it's just those nasty secular critics that are panning the film because it's wholesome and religious, right? WRONG! Christianity Today's Reviewer gave Left Behind one-half of one star, a four page review of everything that was wrong with it…and this warning in bold print: "I will bold this next point so that readers now searching desperately for the vanished comments section can take note: Left Behind is not a Christian Movie"

When you read a group of movie review slug lines like these, your eyebrows go up (and your money tends to stay in your pocket)

"Score One for Satan" -Toronto Star "Left Behind seriously could have used some divine intervention." -USA Today "Featuring local-cable production values and dialog that seems written by a crack team of Sunday schoolers" -New York Post "The movie is just too silly, roundabout, and bungling to feel anything other than a little pity for it." Top Critic Rotten Tomatoes "You expect this kind of shoddy work from a movie with the guy from 'Growing Pains,' but not with the guy from 'Bangkok Dangerous.' " -Metro "At best, Left Behind is shoddily made sensationalist propaganda-with atrocious acting-that barely registers as entertainment. At worst, it's profoundly moronic."-Entertainment Weekly "You'll be praying for salvation from this awkward apocalypse" -Film Racket "The Rapture won't come soon enough for the unfortunate souls forced to suffer through Left Behind." –Hollywood Reporter "With a Sharknado-inspired visual style and a deeply weary lead performance from Nicolas Cage, Left Behind is cheap-looking, overwrought kitsch of the most unintentionally hilarious order." -Variety

So what's the back story here? How did this hot mess come to be? Apparently, it all started with a series of 16 books that were popular nearly two decades ago, that feature gratuitous violence and political whodunits in a loose Christian End of Times wrapper.

The books did well, so why not make a movie? They did…in 2000…starring Kirk Cameron. It flopped rather miserably and went the way of direct to video bargain bins. Could this be a prophecy of future events involving Left Behind 2014? Time will tell.

But despite all this bad press…there IS an up side: Credit where credit is due!!! At a very divisive time in American History…Left Behind has managed to make the Secular and Religious UNITE in a wincing groan and forehead smack of appalled disappointment.

When some other people walked out, we 'left behind' them.

This movie epitomizes the problem with religion in general.

It starts with a conclusion, so it's tediously predictable & boring boring boring, strictly by-the-numbers fluff for the easily entertained.

As demonstrated the featured review, the only people who will like this dog are those who take a creepy satisfaction in their belief that they alone will get sucked up to heaven while everybody else fries in hell.

As a result, it's aimed at a narrow audience of knee-jerk true believers who would like it no matter how awful it is.

And this was awful, folks. The script falls so flat I even lost my taste for popcorn. Even my daughter, who wanted to see it, got bored pretty quickly.

So when some other people walked out, we 'left behind' them.
