Our LEFT BEHIND movie month continues with the 2nd in the series, in which handsome young reporter Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) and his former atheist pilot cohort Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson) form a TRIBULATION FORCE to oppose the rise of Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie), the charming, Slavic secretary general of the United Nations who promises to unite the world under a single currency. While the original LEFT BEHIND felt so competently made that it might be mistaken for a “normal” film, LEFT BEHIND II gives itself permission to go way off the deep end into pure Christian movie cliches. These include: worldly characters being unnecessarily hostile to Christians, Kirk Cameron trying to change the world by broadcasting a Biblical message on live TV, and a minor character’s bizarre conversion to Christianity featuring dialogue cribbed directly from a Ray Comfort sermon. Truly, LEFT BEHIND II teaches us that desperate times call for desperate measures. Joining us to oppose the New World Order are Sam and Casey of Growing Up Christian podcast, who have had many conversations in the past on their show about the religious trauma that some Christians experience after being exposed to terrifying rapture stories from a young age. We’re happy to have them in our own Tribulation Force.
