Trivia

Left Behind authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins along with their families were given an advanced screening of a rough cut of the movie on January 31, 2014. Afterwards, LaHaye was quoted as saying, "It is the best movie I have ever seen on the rapture." Jenkins was quoted, "I believe it does justice to the novel and will renew interest in the entire series." See more »

Goofs

The plane loses a part of the right wing in the mid-air collision, but in later scenes of the plane returning to land at JFK, it appears that the right wing is undamaged. See more »

Alternate Versions

To avoid a 15 rating in the UK for a home video release, the distributors cut 79 seconds of strong threat and violence in order to obtain a 12 classification. However, the 12 version was not released, and the uncut version was released with a 15 on DVD and Blu-ray. See more »

I want my money back
13 October 2014 | by louisafonteleraSee all my reviews

This movie was simply AWFUL. Really, really bad. And to those who are going to argue that the reason why this movie is rated so low is because people are becoming "anti- Christian", NO. The acting was terrible, the script was horrendous, seriously. A group of high school kids in drama club could do better. It was deathly boring, i thought I was in there for more than three hours.

Worst of all is the message its trying to send. Isn't it curious that the movie tried so hard to portray all of those that were left as bad messed up people? So is that supposed to mean that those who don't believe in the Christian God are all either cheaters, flirts, gamblers, thieves, drug addicts and just generally messed up? Because that's what I saw. Don't think I wouldn't catch that. I get that its a Christian movie but its still a pretty offensive way of showing off your faith.

Even in the Philippines, which is predominantly made up of believers, people in the theatre couldn't help but laugh at how absolutely ridiculous everything was. Worst movie EVER
