Skims the surface
11 October 1999 | by (Brocktroit, Massatucky) – See all my reviews

Fact based movie about polygamist cult leader skims the surface without delving too deeply into the 2 year manhunt and years surrounding it. Brian Dennehy does adequate job, for the amount of screentime allotted him. William Devane, is the investigator, who is also a devout Mormon, vigorously pursuing him while basically revealing stresses to his homelife, but again, isn't looked at closely enough. If film was longer, may have been more interesting. But still worth checking out if only for the fact that true-to-life films hold an historical interest, to a degree.
