Consensus: Yea verily, like unto a plague of locusts, Left Behind hath begat a further scourge of devastation upon Nicolas Cage's once-proud filmography.

A shoo-in to clean up at the next Razzie Awards.

Left Behind is biblical in its silliness.

The basic premise of the film could have made for an engaging and far-out watch. The very concept of the Rapture could have been depicted with power and mystery, but instead the opposite is achieved in a film that just looks slapdash.

Not only is this an amateurish travesty combining fundamentalist Christian eschatology with disaster movie b.s., but it's plodding and tedious.

It believes people might buy a ticket to Left Behind and not know the twist, like someone sitting down to watch Godzilla and being shocked by the entrance of a giant lizard.

Overt Christian messages and Cage's omnipresence are not the only reasons why Left Behind is a terrible movie. And yes, it's indeed terrible-god-awful, a less interesting, more convoluted version of the original Left Behind.

This new film is a watered-down and somewhat changed version of the earlier movie with a bigger budget and not much else. There is barely enough undercooked scriptural theology to critique in the vacuous writing and painful acting.

Rebooting the franchise, Left Behind delivers a more suspenseful and intense adaptation of Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins' apocalyptic thriller. When a… More

"Left Behind" does not mark another terrible Nicholas Cage performance, but it is a new low for the actor's reel. He, along with the rest of the… More

If I were God, I'd have left Nicholas Cage behind long, long ago. Hopefully this inept film will be lost before Judgment Day.
