Rapture-Palooza

3

One final laugh before the apocalypse

Unlike the year’s other apoca-comedies (This Is The End, The World’s End), this droll black comedy didn’t make it to cinemas, but cast and concept make it worth a look.

All the righteous true believers have ascended into Heaven, leaving the heathens – like Anna Kendrick’s Lindsey and her boyfriend Ben (John Francis Daley) – to contend with locust plagues, seas of boiling blood and the Antichrist (Craig Robinson).

In a bid to save what’s left of humanity, our heroes team up with God (Ken Jeong, naturally).

More silly than subversive, but seeing the hilarious Robinson run wild is a hell of a treat.
