From Amazon.co.uk

Third in a series of films based on the best-selling novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, Left Behind: World at War finds the post-Rapture Earth an even bleaker place than in the previous movies. As the anti-Christ himself, Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie), uses his new-found powers as head of the world government to bring war and plague on every nation, the American president (Louis Gossett Jr.) teams with a Christian resistance fighter (Jessica Steen) to try to stop him. Meanwhile, series hero Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) discovers that Carpathia's biological front in a coming apocalypse is particularly devious: Freshly published Bibles are carrying a deadly disease ravaging thousands--and may very likely claim Buck's new bride. Buck's father-in-law, pilot Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson), has problems of his own facing the not-inconsiderable temptations of former flight attendant Hattie Daniels (Chelsea Noble), now one of Carpathia's many lovers. Directed by Craig R. Baxley (Rose Red), Left Behind: World at War is particularly crisp and effective drama, even when the action stops, as it often does, for many of the principals to pray for guidance. Charles Martin Smith (The Untouchables), not seen often enough these days, has a brief but powerful part as the U.S. vice-president. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Drama starring Lou Gossett Jr. In the prophesised world of the Book of Revelation, global icon and world leader Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie) has finally done the unimaginable - he has managed to unite the world in peace - and bring an end to the bloodshed that has ruled the world since the beginning of time. American President, Gerald Fitzhugh (Gossett Jr) has shared that dream, and has dedicated his Presidency to making sure that the world's most powerful nation didn't stand in the way of that dream. But when a failed assassination attempt opens his eyes to an underground world and a horrifying glimpse into a sinister conspiracy, Fitzhugh must come to terms with the agonising truth - World War III is pounding at the door, and his dedication to the dream of peace has left America powerless to defend herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left Behind- World at war. 22 Jan 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found Left behind world at war probably the most enjoyable of the three dvds in the left behind series.It was certainly action packed from beginning to end and the story gripped me right throughout.It was great to see the same characters we have grown to know through the previous two films (1&2), and the introduction of a few new faces which adds to the humour and intensity of the 3rd film. Special effects were also very impressive.I cannot wait to see the next one if it is as good as this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Left Behind III 5 Oct 2007
Format:DVD
This is the third movie of the Left behind series. The production value of this movie seems better then before. But this script cannot stand on its own merit. If you have not seen the previous movies, do not watch this one. You must see them in sequence to enjoy this movie. This movie like the others in the series does not follow the book. But seeing Lou Gosset, Jr. in this movie was a nice surprise. The movie also has a lot of well filmed action sequences.

When this movie starts it has been eighteen months since Nicolae Carpathia's rise to power, and he has been captivating the whole world, including President Fitzhugh. Our heroes are back again and suspect he's something more, the prophesied Antichrist.

The DVD special features include a couple music videos, a technical making of feature, interview with the actors, bloopers and outtakes, audio commentary, deleted scenes and a couple other bonuses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film 2 Feb 2009
By AquaViola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Book of Revelation / Apocalypse does not detail exactly what is going to happen in the 7 year period of the Tribulation - this gives the film makers plenty of scope.

As this film starts, America is being destroyed by the Global Community Leader, and the President has no power to stop it. This film then goes back a week earlier and follows, among other things, the President's journey to discovering the truth.

This film may not be for everyone, as there are some small passages of what some may call "preachy" bits in it. However, it is a good film, with an engaging plot and a good ending.

Overall, a film ultimately of hope, even in the face of overwhelming odds - but maybe a surprising end?

1.0 out of 5 stars This film made me lose the will to live. 2 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
Oh my God. Rather than a film, this was more like some sort of Christian conversion attempt; featuring numerous speeches of how God will save you and how baby Jebus is our saviour, etc. Including more plot holes than a something with lots of plot holes in, this was a waste of an hour and a half.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Earth Hangs in the Balance 27 Oct 2005
By Jeffrey T. Munson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In this 3rd installment of the "Left Behind" movie series, the earth teeters on the brink of World War III as a terrible virus is spreading throughout the world. Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron), Chloe Steele (Janaya Stephens), and Rayford Steele (Brad Johnson) must figure out who or what is causing the plague and stop it before its too late.

Louis Gossett Jr. stars as President Gerald Fitzhugh, who has been in a close working relationship with Global Community leader Nicolae Carpathia, played excellently one again by Gordon Currie. An undergound faction lend by the president himself, with assistance from Carolyn Miller (Jessica Stern) has been watching Carpathia's activities. They soon learn that the virus is being transmitted by infected Bibles. Many infected people have been flocking to churches seeking assistance from the plague. Fitzhugh has also found out that Carpathia plans to attack the countries of the world with the weapons that they surrendered to him as a gesture of peace.

Amidst all of these activities, Rayford has married Amanda White (Laura Catalano), and Buck has finally married Chloe. Unfortunately, one of the infected is Bruce Barnes, the pastor of the Steele's local church.

Racing against time, President Fitzhugh confronts Nicolae about his plans. Using some unseen force, Nicolae lifts the president up and throws him out of a window several stories high. Miraculously, he survives. Soon, he is visited by Buck, who witnesses to him and prays with him. With his new-found salvation and with the help of a small transmitter, Fitzhugh returns to Nicolae's office. What will happen between Nicolae and President Fitzhugh? Will the world survive?

I found this movie to be slightly different than the first two. While the earlier movies followed the books very closely, this film deviated somewhat from the storyline. I can't remember some of the instances, but some, such as Chloe being healed by the wine after accepting communion and Hattie Durham's (Chelsea Noble) attempted pass at Rayford did mesh with the books.

Overall, I did enjoy this film very much. Although there is some deviation, the story is still good and the acting, led once again by Gordon Currie, is outstanding. I highly recommend this movie. Watch and try to figure out what the next move will be in the struggle between Nicolae and the trib force.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Takes Sides!!! 6 Jun 2009
By Jim-Bob Koenig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Left Behind: World At War is the third movie adaptation to the hit book series Left Behind. Instead of making a movie based around book 3 in the series (Nicolae), this movie is based on the last 40 pages of Book 2 Tribulation Force. It is mostly about the uprising and military action against Carpathia from the nations of U.S.A, Great Britian, and Egypt, let by President Fitzhugh. Its a great movie with plenty of action but also, for the Left Behind addicts there is the meetings of the Tribulation Force. Great movie for those who enjoy the Left Behind Series!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Left Behind - World at war 12 July 2006
By Mrs. K. M. Reaney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As other reviewers have stated, I have read all the books in the left behind series and thoroughly enjoyed them. They have a message that comes through loud and clear. However, this 3rd Movie in the series moves right off the storyline in what would appear to be a blatant effort to give a famous movie actor the starring role. A role that was never to the fore in the books. Even the title is off from the series.

This is a good movie, as movies go. It may well be the best film of the 3 for entertainment value and also made me question some of my own Christian attitudes. But I feel that if I were not a Christian, the message may have gone over my head. People need to act now and accept God into their lives as they may not get a last chance. If your life were to end today, are you sure of where you would spend eternity. If not, it's time to accept the Lord Jesus into your heart and accept his love and forgiveness. If you wait for the rapture you may, and probably will, be too late.

I have given this 3 stars overall because it was a good movie, but can't give it any more due to the fact that I was disappointed in the content.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the left behind i remember 26 Oct 2005
By The Red Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I admit it's been a while since i've read Tribulation Force, and this movie is supposed to be based on the last 50 pages of the book, but after watching the movie you will see the only thing they took from the book is the names of the characters and the fact that a war happens. SPOILERS for those who have not read the book or seen the movie yet.

Bruce and many other Christians, including Chloe, get a deadly disease from planted Bibles that Nicolae has had sprayed with a poisonus mist. That is not in the book at all, i remember that much. Chloe almost dies and would have if she hadn't taken comunion. In the book, Bruce picks up the disease in some foreign country and Chloe's car flips, I don't see what would've been so hard about conveying that on screen. To screw up the story even more, President Fitsguh shoots Nicolae at point blank range and in return Nicolae picks him up with a force like power and throws Fitsguh out the window, 30 stories down. The president miracously survives and ends up returning later on, launching a missle directly into his office, destroying the whole GC office. I'm sorry but nothing like that happens in the book. What is this based on really? Nothing. I can understand why they did what they did, to make it more dramatic and emotional (ie. to have Chloe, Ray, and Amanda be with Bruce while he dies in the church) but it's not anything like the original story which would could have easily been conveyed on screen. The movies are not as dark as I remember the books being, the whole movie series thus far has had the agenda of getting the gospel message in there, and there's nothing wrong with that, but the movies seem less realistic and bogged down by it. the books presented the gospel well and with a good realistic story. Now my mom loved this movie, it's a lot different then the first two and i will admit, is a good story on it's own but they should not say it's related to Left behind. the only thing that connected me to the first two movies were the characters and the cheesy effects.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you Kidding me? 9 Nov 2005
By Denny Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This was billed as the first hollywood studio quality feature film for Christians. Kirk Cameron even urged all Christians to go out and support this "film" to show Hollywood that we are a serious moviegoers who care about what content we and our families watch. Well, I am serious when i say, this is one sorry excuse for taking my hard earned money, and at church no less. I went to my local Church premier and saw this poorly excecuted adaptation of a book that i rather enjoyed. Even, by book to movie standards, this latest attempt to bring the page-turning Left Behind books to the big screen left me feeling a little embarrassed to be there. I laughed outloud at certain points. I am hoping that someday there will be great values-based entertainment out there for intelligent adults, but this most certainly is not it. So far the best Christian movies have been ones with Christian stories, but not aimed exclusively at us such as Mel Gibson's unwaivering and lovingly crafted film. The only good thing that came from the widely publicized church premiers of this movie was the fact that they showed Angel Wars on a big screen concurrently for our children. They loved it, and i wish i had gone to see that instead. So it is not hopeless i guess. Original kids shows such as Veggie Tales and Angel Wars has proven you can make values-concious entertainment for Christians without watering it down, as it was most recently, in Left Behind - World at War.
