More Info:
  • Nathan Rabin

    The film’s appeal is largely dependent on Cage; Left Behind is a batshit-crazy Cage cult classic of a radically new stripe.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    The performances don't help matters any, with acting ranging from tolerably earnest to laughable. Cage keeps Left Behind from being a completely unholy mess.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Everything about this film feels forced, clunky and overwrought.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s inoffensive, unless you take umbrage at the idea that the only people who know not to steal are True Believers and all that keeps society from an instant meltdown are the Faithful.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Diane Garrett

    Has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer and production values that verge on parody.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    The Rapture won’t come soon enough for the unfortunate souls forced to suffer through Left Behind.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Christian readers and audiences are the base here, but it’s hard to imagine that this incarnation of the story will persuade anyone else to find the Lord unless they’re sitting in the theater praying for the dialogue or special effects to improve. Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There are cheesy pleasures found in Left Behind's ineptness.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    It’s not great art (in fact, it’s pretty low-rent CGI), but it’s passably entertaining.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael Ordona

    That lack of concern for the way people actually interact renders the film useless as entertainment, or as a conversion tool.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Good God almighty: Not since Edward D. Wood Jr. unleashed a flotilla of paper-plate UFOs on beautiful downtown Burbank has there been a movie as stem-to-stern inept as this adaptation of the bestselling Christian novel series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Perhaps Cage flipped a coin before Armstrong called “Action!” and decided to play this role straight. Alas, he has robbed the irony-attuned audiences of their only reason to go.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    The director, Vic Armstrong — whose lengthy résumé hews primarily toward stunt work — displays no facility with actors and even less with pacing.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Left Behind is a terrible movie, bad in almost every way, not even qualifying as so-bad-it's-good material.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    This Left Behind may be worse than the last Left Behind, but it’s much less boring, thanks in part to the commitment of its star, who plays the often ludicrous material with the straightest of faces. The Cage works in mysterious ways.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Macfarlane

    Left Behind is one of those films so deeply, fundamentally terrible that it feels unwittingly high-concept.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

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

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film is amateurish on almost every level.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Left Behind is biblical in its silliness.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    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 Full Review
  • William Goss

    Religious dramas have a track record of prioritizing wholesome values at the cost of production values, and while Left Behind is mostly too preoccupied with being a hoary thriller to preach to the converted, it’s a thoroughly laughable attempt to marry bombast with sermonizing.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Cheesy visual effects, flat shooting, slack directing and pacing, risible dialogue and characterization, lots of crummy acting, plus a painfully dull first act make this anything but a rapturous experience.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lindsey Bahr

    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 Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Cage is going for manly, if conflicted, family-guy confidence in this role, but somehow it comes off as nuttier than the events surrounding him.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    This failed epic — really, an epic failure — would barely be noticed, were it not for former Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage taking on a “Sharknado”-quality remake of a Kirk Cameron movie.
