Way better and completely different from the Nick Cage remake
Verified purchase
I am so glad my husband and I decided to try and find the original after watching the remake last night we where completely confused by the story-line. This movie was very well done, closer to the biblical message and still gave the viewer a hope in redemption in Christ and was really thought provoking. I can't wait to watch the 2nd one tomorrow night. Great Job Kirk Cameron. Makes you wonder though....with the original being done so well, what was the motivation behind the remake? I hope it leads others like myself to seek the original version.

Great movie. I believe everyone should watch this movie. We know that there will be a rapture of the Christian born again believers. The movie depicts the rapture the way it will probably be. The rest I don't know about. I do believe it will be awful for the ones left behind. So many writes a bad review without watching the complete movie. I believe it's because they are to scare to see what is coming. The atheist real fear should be in dying without their savior. Hell is real and Jesus Christ loved us so dearly that He died a horrible death to save us from it. I always take the chance to tell people there is hope and that hope is Jesus Christ. Christians will be persecuted and made fun of but if I can get one person to receive Jesus Christ it is well worth the laughs they give me. Watch the movie and tell yourself "suppose it is real."

Nice try. Not really Really confusing attempt at pseudo theology.
Verified purchase
It is tough trying to predict the end times. This appears to be a mix of a current secular and religious world views mixed with a large dose of modern interpretation of the book of Revelations. The tribulation is a serious time set by God to pour out his righteous judgement on mankind. This movie seems like an attempt to scare people into heaven without a well crafted to story to truly reach down into the very soul mankind and touch the VOID in the heart of man that can only be filled with indwelling presents of God himself.

The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Get someone who can act.

Some of the worst acting I have seen in a long time. Why people worship alien beings in the first place is a mystery to me

Made me aware of rapture and biblical verses regarding end times prophecy
Verified purchase
Favorite rapture movie because unlike most end times movies, this movie, with the fabulous Kirk Cameron, clearly connects the end times back to the Bible, mentioning specific Bible verses, portraying the rapture, and helps viewers better understand the difference between knowing about truth and believing truth. Illustrates the possible character and position of the Antichrist, the prophecy regarding ten kings, how Satan deceives and appears to play the good guy unless you are born again, what it looks like to accept Jesus and receive ability to recognize truth from deception, the significance of Israel and the third temple and a general basic familiarity with end times prophecy. I knew nothing about the rapture or end times prophecy until I saw this movie in 2001.

Issues, but worth it.

In this film there exists some interesting theological issues, which interpreted theologically (rather than philosophically) give one an "uh huh" moment. Only, this is a film reserved for the evangelical mindset, no doubt, written for the evangelical crowed. Firstly, it and the prior installment suggest the anti-Christ is a person, rather than a 'way of being'; in the christian sense, both Gnostic and Orthodox, Jesus ben Joseph taught a way to live. This film focuses most definitively on literal Apocrypha pointing out a single man with a single goal, and not, as the tri-part trilogy suggests in the manner it is writ, a "nation" or set of ideas driving behavior. The anti-Christ is not a person, it's the denial of the behavioral Christ (anointed). Next, the film assumes from an evangelical sense, that people will be whisked away leaving only clothes behind, which is not the case in written form at all; if you're still here being reincarnated, you have yet to make it to heaven (Gnostic)/ if you're present at the end of days, your virtue in action solidifies - like all of time- your place with God (orthodox). Some how, the evangelical nature of American Christianity has promoted the idea that magic will take place and you'll avoid all suffering - suffering which is the point of material life abandoned for spiritual faith. Then again, these are the same mega-church goers who promote a 'prosperity gospel'. . .

The film is nice, in its neche, but beyond the suppression of better knowing, it's lackadaisical to any truly-read Christian. The acting is 'b-actor' grade, and the script is a three-part trilogy that makes for a slow movie, without intent to finish it in parts. With intent to finish its parts, it plays out in the most literal sense the Apocrypha of John [of patmos} can offer. Almost silly - with fire breath and a 'foretold Satan' in human skin.

It's apocalypse porn which distracts from the nature of Christ and the message of Jesus - BE a certain way, as then faith is a nature of being. It's evangelical "feel good", where there is no conflict between the Judaic theology and the Christian faith, and in fact, a jew at the end convinces everyone to acknowledge Jesus; the rabbinical teaching are the affront to Jesus (an Essene jew), and not some gate keepers foretold in the 'scofield (american) bible'. . .

Once you get beyond that mirage, the movie seems funny. Within the mirage, the movie might hold merit to a true-believer in super-churches.
