In the Holy Bible, the Book of Revelations speaks of an event called "The Rapture," in which it is believed God will call those who have been saved to Heaven, while those who have not repented their sins will remain on Earth.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the end, or maybe in the beginning, it won't merely be the unfaithful on the screen who will feel left behind."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Nearly unendurable."
‑ Tom Keogh, Film.com
"The almost total absence of anything that actually looks like a narrative is one of Left Behind's issues, but it's not, honestly, one of the biggest."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Lame dialogue and acting is rescued by interesting plot and characters."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The storytelling is heavy-handed, the plot convoluted, the direction inconsistent, the acting wooden and the effects cheesy."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
"Might be extremely effective while preaching to the converted, but it's no great shakes as secular entertainment."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"A competently made film hampered by wooden performances and a script that has a few too many 'Gee whiz' moments of dialogue."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Mix of apocalyptic book series and the Bible."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Atuações ridículas em um filme absurdo."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It's pretty spooky but director Vic Sarin, screenwriter Allan McElroy are unable to sustain much suspense or credibility."
‑ Louis B. Hobson, Calgary Sun
"An exceedingly poorly made motion picture."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"For all its intimations of fire and brimstone, the film isn't remotely frightening, and the high-school-level acting doesn't help."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"These folks get eternity in heaven, while I'm stuck here watching the Left Behind trilogy. I'm calling my rabbi."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The loosely scripted story is further burdened with clunky dialogue and performances, shoddy continuity, and, well, Kirk Cameron."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
