Left Behind  2014 scifi film

Running time: 110 minutes

Language: English

Chloe, young student, plans to surprise her father, airline pilot Rayford Steele, and flies to meet him for her birthday party. Her parents are separated, which is difficult for her, but when she learns that her father won’t be able to attend her party she is devastated. Father tells her that at the last moment he was called to takeover the London flight, but he assures her that things between him and her mother are fine. When one of the airport staff hands him the tickets he ordered for concert in London Chloe realizes that he planned the trip before. She goes home and speaks with her mother, but when the conversation moves into the themese of Christianity, Chloe, who feels that this preachings are part of the problems between her parents, takes her brother to a mall. While in the mall her brother suddenly disappears and later she learns that it happened not only to her, but to other people. Her father, while piloting the flight to London, is alarmed by the crew that some of the passengers have also disappeared and that people are on the verge of panicking.

Film based on the books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, who created whole series of novels telling the story of Antichrist, end of the world, etc. all from the point of view of Christianity. Just like previous times the bookes were turned into movies, this one also is rather poor production - even though the premise seems interesting, the plot is quite involving, the sudden bursts of almost brain-washing Christianity propaganda is appalling. For example at the beginning of the movie in which TV journalist is recognized by a fan and her first question is what he thinks about God... Very subtle indeed.
