The sequel to Left Behind
has Nicolai Carpathia, the established Antichrist, looking to sign a
treaty with Israel and establish himself as more or less, "The King
of the world." (shade sof DiCaprio shouting from the Titanic in the
movie of the same title). Having charmed his way into everyone's hearts
as a great man of peace, only a handful of Christians realize what he is
really up to. These Christians form The Tribulation Force in opposition
to him and seek to sabotage his efforts as best they can. Let the games

There are several improvements over the first movie in some respects,
most importantly being a Bernard Herrman type score that works perfectly
with the scenes. What I would dub the "Nicolai theme", where
the Antichrist forms an alliance with Buck Williams (Kirk Cameron) on top of a skyscraper overlooking the city is particularly
chilling. Thank God for the good guys, Nicolai is being played and in
the end, is partially foiled in his plans. Seen raving and raging in his
private plane, it's back to the drawing board, but in the third segment
of film, World At War, he will be back with a vengeance.
There are greater special effects than in the first film, including a
morphing effect where for a split second, Nicolai looks like a giant
Gila Monster rather than a human being. Likewise, two biblical prophets
appear at the Wailing Wall and shoot flames from their mouths,
destroying some of those who would do Nicolai's bidding. Those are
just a few high points.
Chalk one more up for Gordon Currie as his slick performance as The
Antichrist. This go-around his evil starts to surface, where it was
fairly sublime in the first go-around, at least until the end, when he
makes his presence known. Kirk Cameron also turns in an emotional
performance as the once skeptical reporter, now on the side of right and
determined to do all he can to throw a wrench into the Antichrist's
plans. Numerous supporting actors and actresses, as well as extras with
brief speaking parts, help make the film interesting.
A nonbeliever will groan and roll his eyes at some of the conversion
scenes, obligatory in a Cloud Ten Production, but in this epic battle of
good versus evil, the preachiness that occasionally comes through tends
to make sense. Christians, for the most part, have gone nuts over this
series of movies, with more to come.
