Overview

Four people of faith must take it upon themselves to save the soul of humanity in this sequel to Left Behind. When millions of people around the world suddenly disappear into thin air, the entire globe is thrown into chaos, and in the midst of this confusion and uncertainty, Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie), international media magnate and president of the United Nations, steps forward as the leader who will guide all the world's nations in this difficult time. However, television journalist Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) knows the truth behind what has happened -- the mass disappearances were the result of the Rapture, predicted in the Holy Bible as the beginning of the End Times, and Carpathia is, in fact, the Antichrist. Williams falls in with three remaining believers -- pastor and biblical scholar Bruce Barnes (Clarence Gilyard Jr.), airline pilot-turned-believer Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson), and Steele's headstrong 20-year-old daughter, Chloe (Janaya Stephens). Calling themselves the Tribulation Force, the foursome travel the world, attempting to spread the word about Carpathia and tending to the needs of the wounded; in the course of their work, Buck and Chloe fall in love, while Barnes comes to terms with the loss of his wife and child. But when sinister events occur in Israel at the site of the Wailing Wall, the Tribulation Force suspects Carpathia may have some more unpleasant surprises up his sleeve. Adapted from the popular series of Christian thrillers by Rev. Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, Left Behind II: Tribulation Force, like the first Left Behind picture, was produced by Christian production company Cloud Ten Productions; both films were first marketed on home video, and later released to theaters to widen their public profile.

The Biblical interpretations from the authors of the Left Behind books are a good, solid idea of what humankind has to look forward to. I'd recommend everyone to read the books, and see the movie if you'd like to see the actual action described in the books. Jesus is coming back and whether all of us experience what the books and movies show or not depends on how soon He comes. It's definitely good to be prepared, and it's definitely a good idea to get to know and accept Jesus our Savior.

Alas, I was interested in watching this film...just as I was interested in reading the book: And they both were horrific. Timothy LaHaye, the supposed 'writer' of these books (ahem as to both 'writer' and 'books'), shows his religious fanaticism in these stories - and, true believers, they are just that - stories. Here we have Kirk Cameron (show me that smile, Kirk!) doing his best (umph!) - and his best is just not good enough. Al Pacino himself - or God himself - couldn't save this film. What ruins this film? The screenplay. What ruins the screenplay? the book? What ruined the book? The value of 'sucking.' They all stink. They have no literary value whatsoever (the words printed on a baseball card have more literary value) and are worthless in social merit. Instead, they cater to a fringe movement of 'apocalypse now' Christians who believe that (as they have for 2,000 years) the end is coming soon and that all non-believers (including this United Methodist, I would think) will be 'left behind.' The film fails because it gives in to this fanaticism. But, please, don't blame the film: Blame the guy who made it and the millions of mindless evangelical boobs who watch it every day, praying (preying?) that the end of the world will come and that we evil unbelievers, homosexuals, atheists, communists and, alas, Gore 2000 voters will be sent to the eternal firey bliss known as hell. What an ending!

I loved this Movie.It really stayed true to the ''Left Behind'' books. It is fiction but a good clean Thriller. The Cinemaphotography was a lot better than the first movie and some of the Actors seemed more comfortable in their roles.

I loved both the movies. Can't wait to see the next ones. I have read all of the books and feel that they are 'right on' with the information that people need to be aware of. If we are wrong, no harm done. If we are right, ... well that is something that we don't want to chance. Lot's of good thought-provoking information in these movies.

see the first movie Left Behind. I pray for the persons who do not belive this . if we are wrong oh well if not are you o.k. with being left behind ? . ask God to speak to your heart before you are left behind. And may God bless America. watch the movie and pray about it.

I'm not sure why reviewer Damon Suarez had such a problem with this movie. But he's right about the Religious content. But that's no surprise. The books are based on the bible theology. So if you're easily offended by overt Christianity, don't watch this movie. Otherwise enjoy! I did.

The Left Behind Books are tediously and exhaustedly researched for Biblical accuracy. While the characters are of course fictionalized, the scenes and situations depicted are those of the authors' imaginations based on End Times prophecy outlines described within the Bible's books of Revelations, Daniel and Isiah. As with any book-to-screen attempt, every word and every situation captured in print will not be played out on the big screen. But the producers and directors have done a wonderful job of following as closely as possible within the confines of a meager budget. The Left Behind movies serve as wonderful outreach to the ''nonreading'' population. Whether the viewer sees it as descriptions of truth or plain entertainment, they are sure to walk away with a sense of awe. And though the books (and now) the moveis are wonderful, they should never be substituted for the real thing. God Bless.

This really makes us think and remind us what we need to do before the Rapture. By getting saved (Salvation) you can guarantee a place in Heaven. God Bless you all, and please help me pray for those who need to be saved. My overall opinion is just wonderful, God's word is loving, kind and great! God Bless you all!!

I think religious movies disguised as horror movies is unintelligent and deceitful. Theres nothing scarey about the first Left behind movie which my parents made me watch. thinking I was going to be converted. I think kirk cameron is a Loonie, and I think the books and movies is only a Walmart Crass Comercial phenomenon. And I say Phenomenon lightly and I don't care if I spelled it correctly or not. I've read the book of revelations and the guy who wrote that was a Nut case in Greece. That book was wild but Total Malarky. When I saw the movie I was hoping to see The Great Whore of Babylon, and I wanted to see here get eaten, and I wanted to see the beast and all that. That movie was weak, and so is this.

I think anyone who is interested in the bible will find something in these books, if nothing else just a little more understanding of what is to come. Yes they are just stories but, putting characters in it helps to personalize the stories, all of the characters are one of us . I have read all but number twelve and would reccomend them to anyone who is interested or maybe even just need more understanding.

Amazing, Kirk....making a film such as this really shows how you are sticking with your faith. Good going. From an old friend.

I thoughtt that both one and two where amazing. It makes non beleivers think about god and beleivers think about how they can do better. I loved it

I don't know what is scarier, how bad this movie is or that there are people out there who not only think this is a possibility but that it WILL happen. The acting was sub-par (look at who is headlining the movie) and the effects were pretty cheesy. I highly discourage anyone from seeing this movie. Half of you will listen and the other half will watch it and ignore me because you loved the books and find yourself dissappointed by this movie. Oh well, I warned you.

I liked this movie. I think that the first movie Left Behind 1 was excellent, very believable and had the best ending I have ever seen! I expected the second would be harder to do and more of a segway to more of the action to come. For those who haven't read the books especially I recommend seeing this movie, I think the next one is going to be quite good with alot more action.

I found it rather riveting,though I dont believe that the beast will come from Romania;also,the time of ''peace'' during the seven year reign of antichrist is 42months,not 18.

This movie as well as the first one were amazing. There is nothing that I can say that will be able to relay my appreciation for this movie. I am also a huge fan of the book series. I have not been able to put down the books during my free time. I hope that they continue to make the movies, cause I think that so many people will be amazed at what they will see in the movies and might become interested in the books. I personally didn't even know that there was a book series until I saw the first movie and I instantly became a fan of the series.

Random people not in the books were stuck in, Ben-Judah came off as an annoying Carpathia follower before being unbrainwashed, and of course they had to mimic all their other Cloud 10 movies with some random person singing Amazing Grace and freezing the UN people guarding the Wailing Wall... not that it was that bad a film in itself, but it could have been done a lot better in regards to keeping to the books... really was quite a letdown.

I love the Left behind books and so glad to purchase the movies also.A tv show is in the works.. : ) and this movie makes for a great witnessing tool...spread the WORD.....

The books and the movies are bases on prophecy in the bible. The story is an adaptation about several people who have woke up to changed world, via fullfillment of prophecy.Their lives have changed and new challenges are presented as they enter their quest to save(as in accepting Jesus as their savior), as many people until Christ comes and to stay alive until the Glorious Appearing! Too bad Mr Suarez either is not a believer in bible,or bible prophecy or has not read Revelations.Rev. Smith

Left Behind II was THE best movie that I have ever seen. It is now my favorite movie ever! I watch this movie almost ever single day! I know all the lines yet i still cannot get tired of it. I have read all of the books up-to-date and have fallen in love with the characters. I think that the actors have done a great performance in this movie, along with the rest or the crew. I hope that leftbehind III and IV will come out soon and that there will be future Left Behind films after those! Also, note to the casting department, great job and keep the same actors for all Left Behind films! There is such a stong spiritual message in these movies! Please hurry and release Left Behind III!!!
