Although I'm not that old myself, I can still remember loving the "Hardy Boys" book series when I was a kid. Those books immediately came to mind while I was viewing this film. It's a good old-fashioned mystery-adventure film with solid direction and a fun plot that evokes strong family values like compassion and faith. Having some first-hand knowledge of the challenges faced by both director and crew in the making of this film, I find it encouraging that such a complete and solid piece of independent film can come from relatively tight means. The progression of the actors throughout the film is notable, and the cinematography reflects the gorgeous backdrops of southern Utah. Aside from the technical aspects, the storyline appeals especially to an audience with some knowledge of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Book of Mormon, as it refers to an interesting story found in the Book of Mormon. Also worth noting is the original soundtrack composed by a local artist especially for this film, and I know that, at least on the DVD, a music video is included.
