We headed to theaters for a rare irl Christian movie screening! The latest reboot of the LEFT BEHIND franchise is directed by none other than Kevin Sorbo, an actor who has become Christian movie royalty due to his work in the genre over the past two decades. He stars in this brand new film alongside his wife Sam and his eldest son Braeden, reminiscent of the 2017 film LET THERE BE LIGHT, which also featured the entire Sorbo clan in one of our all-time favorite Christian films due its outrageous and fun plot about defeating terrorist group Isis with the power of God’s love. We went into LEFT BEHIND: RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST with high expectations, which ended up being a terrible idea. Unfortunately, in our opinion, this new film represents how COVID broke everyone’s brains and changed the entire course of evangelical Christians’ taste in entertainment. It seems like a steady diet of YouTube conspiracy videos has influenced what could have been a very exciting story about the rapture that ended up being a boring and lifeless film with lots of long scenes of people sitting down and talking about the New World Order. Still, LEFT BEHIND: RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST was a fascinating look at the current flavor of evangelical Christian filmmaking, even if it sacrificed entertainment for information.
