Trivia

The film is not entirely fictitious: Brigham Young was president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he did have a home in St. George. See more »

Quotes

Bill Hickman: Blood atonement. That made it easy. Save a wicked man's soul by spilling his blood and raise you own self up in the process. Salvation for the victim, exaltation for the slayer. A good deal for both parties.

Berenger Rides Again!
20 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you like horses, Westerns, beautiful scenery & a story filled with intrigue, you should like this film. Co-produced by Tom Berenger (First Corp. Productions) he also stars in this exciting movie made for TNT television. Working along with famed Charlton Heston & James Coburn, Tom's in good company. He shoots, rides & roughs it nicely.

You may not be particularly interested in the trek of the Mormons to Utah in the 1870's but that's what begins the story. Miles Utley (Berenger) is trained form the time he's a youngin' to serve & protect the church's prophet, Brigham Young (Heston). And he does it with a vengeance! (How Bible-totin' people can sanction murder & politcal intrigue is a valid question but...To each his own.)

You have to feel for Berenger's character throughout this whole film. He's on the trail of potential murderers, dallies with Young's daughter in an attempt to get closer to the man he so violently protects, gets left for dead in the Salt Lake, found by one of the usurper's wives & nursed back to health, beginning a relationship with her in the process, rides all over Utah & finally meets up with the prophet himself who knows all along who's got it in for him. He knows Miles is sincere & never doubted his loyalty for a minute. All in all, it's an enjoyable film & will have you guessing & interested throughout. See it!

Note: Berenger's two young daughters get film credit here, too - Chelsea & Chloe Berenger.
