"we bought them, and now am buying the box set as a gift. I saw "Left Behind" a few years ago, and while the movie obviously did not have the benefit of a large budget like so many Hollywood movies, the cast was good and the message was clear. It's a very powerful movie, and one that I have heard so many people rave about. Obviously, people liked it, and bought it, because you can tell with each movie in the series that their budget is bigger. After I saw the second movie in the set, I thought it was my favorite - until I saw the third. They each just leave you wanting to see more - just like they should. Definitely try it out."
THE BEST OF END-TIME FILM!

"Cloud Ten Pictures has been in the forefront of Christian film since they first came on to the scene with their groundbreaking film, "Apocalypse." Fusing biblical prophecy with clever writing and intriguing characters and plotting, producers Peter and Paul Lalonde have been responsible for bringing Christian film into the mainstream. So it was no surprise when it was announced that Cloud Ten Pictures would be responsible for translating the mega-selling "Left Behind" book series to the screen.
Between October of 2000, and September of 2005, three films have been made in the "Left Behind" film series. Combining powerful storytelling, rich characters, terrific performances, and cutting-edge special effects, these films have come to show that Christian film is here to stay. And while the films have never had the largest budgets, the cast and crew do a fantastic job in overcoming these short-comings, and creating powerful suspense and drama.
With power and excitement, "Left Behind" has made a successul transition from page to screen. We can only hope that these aren't the last films to be made from the works of Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Even if they are, they are a great reminder of where Christian cinema is going. I highly recommend these films to both the fans of the books, and to fans of great films!

"I am a big fan of the Left Behind series. I think that it helps to paint a picture of what life just might be like when the time of tribulation comes. It helps to bring the book of Revelations to life in a way most can understand.
I love the movies. The characters I believe have been cast well and I hope that the actors playing the major rolls will continue on with future movies.
My only problem with it is that I wish someone with Mel Gibson's finances were making the movie. The quality is a bit low budget and I believe that if it were better financed it would be better quality and higher box office ratings (like The Passion) and therefore reach more people. I also wish that the movies would follow the books a little closer than they do. Other than that...I have only high praises for the series and hope to see all the books made into movies...and I will own them all!
