Storyline

Those left behind face war, famine, plagues, and natural disaster so devastating that only one in four people will survive. Odds are even worse for the enemies of the Antichrist and his new world order. Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, Bruce Barnes and Chloe Steeleband together to form the Tribulation Force. Their task is clear, and their goal is nothing less than to stand and fight against the enemies of God during the seven most chaotic years the planet will ever know.

Alternate Versions

The DVD version contains deleted/extended/alternate scenes:
  • "Ray At Chris' Apartment" = Rayford goes to Chris' apartment and asks him if he wants to go to church, by approaching the question in the form of a new job offer Bruce told Ray about. Chris answers "no", but remains skeptical at this point.
  • "Chloe with Burned Fireman" - The burned fireman tells Chloe he lost a sister in the rapture and asks her if she lost any family members. The fireman notices the picture of Chloe w/ Buck and ask about her boyfriend (meaning Buck). She answers, saying that he's still here.
  • "4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse" (extended scene) - more about Pastor Bruce Barnes' church lecture on the events of the Tribulation and for anyone to step forward and accept Christ.
  • "Angelic Woman at the Candlelight Vigil" (extended scene) - As Rayford heads over to Chris' apartment, the Angelic Woman sings "Amazing Grace" to try and comfort those who lost family members during one of the many Candlelight Vigils. Her last verse (in voice over) leads to a transition to Chris at his apartment spinning his gun.
  • "Nicolae Rages Against God" (alternate ending) - Same ending as movie, but in different angle. Nicolae sits on his desk, in a defeated state. Hattie arrives and comfort him. Nicolae tells her to leave, and after she closes the door to his private room (in his jet plane called Global Community One), proceeds to curse God, telling him that it is his time, and not Yours. Original movie ending has his speech display both power and anger.

Strangely disturbing for a B movie
4 June 2003 | by jdickey2See all my reviews

In terms of production and acting quality, the Left Behind franchise is purely a made-for-cable TV flick: somewhat better than your typical Lifetime or USA original movie, but worse than your typical SciFi original. I think PAX TV would probably be the appropriate venue for this film. (As a Christian, I can't even give it high marks for theology, since the whole "pretrib" Rapture theme is about as Biblically-sound as the stuff in "The Omen." If anyone can come up with one Bible verse - even one - that teaches a pretrib Rapture, I'll eat my hat.) That said, LB2 is oddly unnerving given the current world situation - the United Nations is portrayed as an evil entity headed by the Anti-Christ, and there are few films out there willing to take on the U.N. for what it is, even after the global body's abyssmal political, economic, and human rights failures in the last few years. It's also refreshing to see a film that throws political correctness to the wind (the Anti-Christ's speeches sound a lot like the drivel that spews from the mouths of our media celebrities and bone-headed college professors).

As with Left Behind, Cloud Ten Pictures has taken a truly terrible book - quite likely the most poorly-written and ill-conceived series to ever hit the best-seller lists - and turned it into a watchable if unspectacular film. (The script writer has substantially improved the moronic dialog of the book, and pains have been taken to make the characters more warmly humane than they were originally written.) Definitely a guilty pleasure movie for those of us raised in Baptist and Pentecostal churches. Cloud Ten's original Rapture movies - "Revelation" and "Judgment" - are still much better, since they aren't hampered by Jerry Jenkin's awful fiction.
