The Remaining review

A wedding to remember...

Beginning in American Wedding territory with the nuptials of Gap model-alikes Brian Dechart and Alexa PenaVega, this Christian sci-fi quickly turns into a cut-price Cloverfield. One minute, it’s all angsty love triangles; the next, hail and fire are falling from the sky and a CG Rapture is upon us.

Co-writer/director Casey La Scala exec-produced Donnie Darko, so he’s no stranger to metaphysical navel-gazing. But the human dramas are deftly sketched, the performances decent, and the religious hand-wringing just bearable. On this budget, the fact it’s coherent, let alone compelling, is a blessing.
