Brad Johnson is the headliner in this first movie based on the best-selling series of books by Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins. Also starring are Kirk Cameron and Chelsea Noble (real life husband and wife). If you are willing to suspend your knowledge of theology and the debates over end-time prophecy schemes, you could enjoy this movie as an action-spiritual thriller. Just take it as a fiction story with an apocalyptic theme, based on the Bible. In the wake of the Rapture, the disappearance of many people, and world-wide disruption and panic, these characters lives are thrown together. Johnson as an airline pilot and Cameron as a journalist are believable. And there is something of a back-story in the relationship between Johnson’s and Noble’s characters (they are ending a fling). There is decent action and suspense and enough special effects to keep your attention. If you’re not familiar with end-time prophecy based on the Bible, you still won’t have any trouble following the storyline. Maybe toss a coin to decide whether or not to spend two hours of your time watching this.
