It drags, till the point that i wished rapture should just happen and save me from this movie
Christian Movie's shouldn't be going as far as making part 2s, this movie is not as disappointing as when I saw The Encounter part 2, but it is not as good as the first. With both David White and Kevin Downes reprising their roles as Adam Riley and Charles Baker respectively, The Moment After 2 is not that far from the first, it still talks about the events after the rapture this time the makers decided to add a twist ending, in fact two twists.
Like the first the acting is top notch, but the plot loses you in the middle. The length of campfire talks drag and if you are not careful you will sleep off as you wait for the events to happen. The maker's decision to add a little violence into the movie didn't go down well with me. The movie stalls till the final battle but then after the battle I still just wish they didn't do this movie.
Dealing more on the personal struggles after being part of those who chose Christ, this movie shows how each person has to learn to let go and let God, as each character has to deal with his own inner demons.
The movie plot kicks off with former FBI agent Adam Riley (David A.R. White) escaping from death, as a result of a small group of miscreants who wanted to break out their leader.
Adam walks the desert till he comes across other Christians and reunites with his friend and Christian mentor Jacob Krause (Brad Heller). Adam's former partner Charles Baker (Kevin Downes) was sent in to infiltrate the Christian group and help bring them down. Charles succeeds in getting into the Christian group but things changed along the way and we are thrown in the mix of people trying to deal with their personal demons.
The movie does have some other subplots going on, that was meant to be a distraction from the main plot so as to keep the viewer interested. The subplot is about a small group who refuses to get the mark and also refuses to join the Christians, they live their own lives independent of what happens around them, they steal, kill and are ready to go to any length for survival.
Unlike the first which won an award for its evangelical message, this didn't follow suit as the message is lost in the plots and subplots not to add the violence. I won't bother seeing this, just watch the first.
