On an international flight, journalist Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron from GROWING PAINS) and pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson, the formor Marlboro Man) discover that several passengers have simply vanished. Soon, it becomes clear that millions of people have disappeared off the face of the Earth, and they take it upon themselves to uncover the root of this perturbing mystery.
LEFT BEHIND: THE MOVIE, based on the the successful series of Christian novels written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, could be one in a long tradition of extravagant classic Hollywood biblical epics. It steadily and deliberately delivers the same themes shared by older Christian pictures, but it benefits from more modern visual trappings. LEFT BEHIND might also be compared to another group of films made in the 1990s that are oriented towards fundamentalist Christians. That group, like LEFT BEHIND, could be placed specifically in the Last Days sub-category.
