It is the second film adaptation of the first Left Behind novel, though it does not follow the book's chronology. University of Southern California student Chloe Steele has flown in from college to surprise her father, pilot Rayford Steele , for his birthday party. However, her mother Irene quickly calls to inform her that her father cannot make it. While at the airport waiting for him, Chloe meets up with investigative reporter Cameron "Buck" Williams. Rayford shows up on his way to a flight and apologizes to Chloe for missing his birthday party, insisting he was called in to pilot a flight to London at the last minute. He also assures Chloe things are fine between himself and his wife, who recently had become an active believing Christian, much to Chloe's chagrin.

Watch the trailer. Left Behind finds commercial airline pilot Ray Steele Nicholas Cage struggling to keep his passengers calm and his plane afloat after the Biblical Rapture strikes mid-flight. Anyway, this movie was absolute cancer.

After millions of people mysteriously disappear; a pilot must protect the remaining passengers on his flight.

It should have more passion, more intensity. It should have more bees. All are based on the apocalyptic novels by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. Director Vic Armstrong , a longtime stuntman making only his second feature and his first in a couple of decades , had a larger budget than the original's, and a more established star in the lead. None of that shows up on screen. The "big" set pieces look small and chintzy, the lighting is hard and flat, and the pacing is a monotonous back-and-forth between an airplane in the skies across the Atlantic and the chaos on the ground below. As the awesomely named Rayford Steele, a philandering airline pilot who sees the light as the end is nigh, Cage needed to bring the wild-eyed, full-bore crazy.
