I think it's great! Nov 23, 2000
I did not buy this movie in order to pick over the special effects (which, by the way, I have no complaints with)or complain that it couldn't compare in quality to all of Hollywood's big budget movies. This is a movie with a message and it comes across loud and clear to me. I've watched this movie almost daily since I got it and each time I see something that I didn't see before. When it hits the theater next Feb I plan on loading up the van with a bunch! And for those who complain that Christian movies don't compare with the ones that Hollywood generates, thank God! Because you spend more doesn't make it better.

Awesome! Oct 24, 2000
I saw Left Behind last night, and I found myself watching it twice! This is by far the very BEST christian film I have ever seen! This is a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the begining till the end. I thought the book was good, but the Movie is GREAT! The movie differs slightly from the book storyline, but it really enhances the story. Great script! I am certain you'll enjoy this movie!
I only wish the DVD had the widescreen instead of full frame :0(

Simply Anointed Oct 19, 2000
By Steven C. Day
My wife began reading these books a year or so ago, and I knew they were good, but I simply never thought to read them myself. We aquired the Dramatic Audio edition of Left Behind and I was mesmerized. I have always been a student of prophecy and end time events, so I was of course very moved and excited. After completing the other 6 books currently released in a little over a month, I found myself totally committed to the characters and emotionally and spiritually connected to this story. I am so looking forward to this movie release, not because I feel the directors and producers will be artistically correct, or that the actors will put on an Oscar winning performance, but because the writers and people involved are anointed of God. Even if the acting is horrible, you still cannot keep from being moved by the Holy Spirit while watching. I went to a Left Behind convention here in Dallas on October 17th, and Kirk Cameron was there with his wife, and Clay Crosse, and Bob Carlisle, and Russ Lee, and Amy WIlliams, and Jake. And it was tremendous! They showed about 1/4 of the movie there, and it was simply great! Anyway, I am looking forward to this DVD, and may you know Christ more deeply from this experience.

not as detailed as the book, but definitely worth watching.. Nov 09, 2000
By sam cox
i know you are going to read the other reviews and see some of them saying just beat me over the head with the Bible, but it's not that at all. if they truly read the books , then they should have expected the movie to be no different. their are bits and pieces left out of the book in the movie, but you can still follow it and understand the message it sends. even if you have not read the books you will still understand the movie. the actors in the movie do a wonderful job of portraying the characters in the book and in delivering the message behind the books, and the Bible. this movie is touching and spiritually moving at the same time, and i promise you that you will not be disappointed. i want lie and tell you the movie is action packed and fast paced, but neither is the first book. just like the book the movie is nothing but the starting bases for hopefully the rest of the books to follow. the movie has its moments of action, and others is the storyline, but like i said you will not be disappointed. the others of you who were disappointed i'm sorry, but please still get out and help promote this movie because it could help open up the doors for other movies of this series, and a little boost from hollywood if the movie does good. if you haven't seen the movie, go out and get it or go to a church that is showing the movie and watch it, you will love it.

Made For TV? Nov 03, 2000
By Jeffrey R Wolff
Being a Christian, I am intrigued by the Left Behind series and it's fictional interpretation of Revelations. While the first Left Behind DVD was enjoyable, I found the lack of captioning and 5.1 or DTS sound options to be a minus. On the other hand, the script, acting, and the theme were a very good interpretation of the original book. To be able to interpret each book and put them into a movie format would most likely mean a film of about 5-6 hours per film. The screenplay was well condensed and did raise the all-important, soul searching questions that have plagued non- believers consciences since God created mankind.
I am not sure if the material will sell well at the theaters, but may do extremely well as a TV miniseries. No sex, no drinking or drug use is exactly the type of TV materials this country needs more of. I can't wait for the next release!!!
