Educational film like telling of the Mormons' trek to Utah
19 April 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is the story of the founding of the Mormon Church and their trek across America to found Utah.

I'm not sure how this will play if you're not a Mormon. To me it seemed like a cross between the old Sunn Classic pseudo documentaries (ie Beyond and Back, In Search of Noah's Ark) and one of the awkward educational films you'd see in school. Yes its informative, but ts not very interesting. It definitely not something that I would ever put on again for enjoyment. Its just sort of is.

Actually the most interesting thing is the casting of Richard Moll as Joseph Smith the founder of the church. The role is so very different than what we know him for, Bull on Night Court and monsters in low budget horror movies, that this is a nice change of pace.

Worth a shot if you're curious but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
