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.
