Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Suspenseful, Compelling, and Truth

"Left Behind" gets 2 thumbs up! This movie has a great message because it makes us think what a true Christian is. We need love and hope in times of catastrophes, especially close to the end of the world.

My children loved this series.

I watched alongside my children in order to answer any questions. Everything that would be inappropriate in other movies, is more implied in this one or done off-screen.
