Left Behind: The Movie

Disclaimer: Yours truly does not buy-in to the whole millenialist hoopla that has fueled the last few decades of pulp fiction.

So, I was fully prepared to suspend reality for the hour and a half or so that it was going to take to watch the latest DVD selection by our friends at Netflix.

Kinda like what I had to do to watch adaptations of Dan Brown's DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons.

But, this flick (released in 2001) apparently lacked the budget of those aforementioned bits of fiction. The special effects weren't even laugh-worthy, provoking only cringes around this little corner of heaven.

And, whereas Brown's works were brought to life by superstar Tom Hanks, the poorly-written dialogue in this film was delivered by a cast led by 80s teen icon Kirk Cameron.

Bottom line: If you must entertain such notions, pick up one of the books and skip the film version.
