Good End Times Film
21 October 2015 | by hausrathmanSee all my reviews

A disparate group of people seek shelter in the basement of a church after an event which appears to be the Rapture occurs. I have seen quite a few faith-based End Times films. Personally, I feel the genre has been played out, but this film, directed by Cynthia L. Leon and Gary Voelker, found some new wrinkles as it let issues within the church like racism, unforgiveness and hypocrisy play out. There is a edgy honesty to the script that I found refreshing for a faith-based film. The Rapture itself was handled very well considering the budget. The film also features some good performances, particularly from Patrick Vann who plays a young skeptic who knows more about faith than the so-called Christians who find themselves left behind. I look forward to seeing more films from Ms. Leon and Mr. Voelker.
