    ★★

    Apparently, surprisingly, I'm in the minority on this, but this was a big bunch of meh. The first half was serviceable enough, if overstuffed with thinly written characters, but then the second half just (pardon) descends into cliched disaster movie territory and because a hot mess of tear jerking nonsense. And it loses half a star for reducing Keira Knightley's role to: standing at the airport, laying in bed, answering the phone, laying in bed answering the phone, and standing in the airport again. Come on guys.

    Some nice cinematography though.

    ★★★★★

    A mind-blowingly creative masterpiece that stands right up there with Pixar's best. Their funniest since probably Monsters, Inc. and their most punch-in-the-gut emotional since probably Finding Nemo (yes, even more than Toy Story 3).

    I'm giving this half a star because I need to log a rating, but good god, this film was something else, in the worst possible way you could think of. I've often experienced films that I would describe as being torturous to watch, but after seeing Left Behind, I truly know the meaning of that phrase. Watching it was the equivalent of a knife slowly twisting itself into my stomach, and afterwards, I had truly felt as if my soul had been sucked completely out of my body. The worst studio I've ever seen? I'm struggling to think of an alternative answer.
