Conclusion: Left Behind (2014) Film Review
Left Behind is one of those interesting ideas that don’t quite make it all the way on to the big screen. It’s a good idea and the result is a pretty decent film. I thought the passengers characters could have been a little more interesting to help with the tension. In the end they are merely ok and the film ends up being good but not great.
If you enjoyed my Left Behind blu-ray review so far you may want to check out the following films:
- City of Angels (1998)
- Next (2007)
- Knowing (2009)
- The Book of Eli (2010)
- Season of the Witch (2011)
- Pay The Ghost (2015)
Conclusion: Left Behind Blu-ray Review
There are no issues to report in the picture quality department being a film from 2014. There are no extras included but I’m fine with that as long as 101 Films keeps releasing these Nicolas Cage movies on Bluray.
