VANISHED: LEFT BEHIND - NEXT GENERATION [ 2016 ], directed by #larryamclean
If only this was made into TV series instead of a film, I'd be more than happy to recommend it to anyone, but movie is a different story, 'cuz the whole #leftbehind
concept has already failed to meet expectations in it's previous film adaptations.
The original books had spin-off book series, called #leftbehindthekids
, & this film is a loose adaptation of 'em.
We have four teenagers, wandering around in a post-rapture world, trying to figure out just what in the hell has happened. The cast (I mean the kids) is nothing special of note. Bunch of green & inexperienced teens, with only #dylansprayberry
standing out. Somehow his act is more believable then anyone else's in here. Maybe it has something to do with him already having done a few acting jobs here & there, most notably as young #superman
& supporting role in #teenwolf
With the plot not offering any interesting twists, all in all, there is nothing else to see here. The only reason I've decided to check it out is for it's ties with "Left Behind" universe.
I wasn't disappointed, 'cuz I wasn't expecting much from this movie. It only left me wondering, how come the series have never been made yet? This movie could, as well, be a stepping stone for such, or a pilot if you may call it that.
Anyways, it's worth something like 5/10. Don't bother watching it, unless you are familiar with the books, otherwise you'd just end up hating it, & the film doesn't deserve it.
