that any Rapturethemed movie to be blessed with Nicolas Cage’s presence would be overflowing with boggle- eyed freak- out moments. But the Cage we get here just looks bored and weary, like a once wild- limbed puppet who’s had his strings snapped. Despite Cage’s 15- year reputation suicide, this a new nadir, a clunkily directed and deadeningly po- faced apocalyptic drama with a beefy Christian message.
It’s based on a crazily popular series of Biblically inspired novels co- written by evangelical minister Tim LaHaye. Now, there’s nothing wrong with Christian- fuelled stories, but as non- believers like Cage’s adulterous air captain are left to burn on Earth, Left Behind delivers its God report in such a sanctimonious way it stands little chance of converting non- believers.
