Meh....not bad
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is okay. It's not very accurate, but what do you expect from an old western staring Charlton Heston? Tom Berenger is good as a young member of the "Avenging Angels" learning about intrigue and scandal in his group. Kind of like Mission: Impossible, but in the West.

James Coburn is excellent as Orin Porter Rockwell, an interesting enough character, they could have made the whole movie about him.

Charlton Heston is Brigham Young....if you liked him as Moses, you'll like him here. If not, you won't.

The basic plot of the movie is based on inaccuracies and exaggerations. There may or may not have been a group of "Avenging Angels" in early Utah. Whether there was or not, the group was not an official Church unit and neither murder, nor blood atonement, has been enforced or used by the Church at large.

As long as you understand it's fictional, though, it's a decently interesting movie.
