Inaccurate History
19 August 2013 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

The reason for my poor review has less to do with the technical quality of the film than with its content. Actually, it's fairly well made for a straight to DVD historical biopic. It's simply not a very accurate account of Mormon history. The reasons for anti-Mormon sentiment in Missouri and elsewhere isn't mentioned at all, and polygamy is only mentioned in passing. Not a single one of Joseph Smith's 25+ other wives is even mentioned, nor is the 5000 man strong Nauvoo Legion or Smith's attempts to establish a theocratic dictatorship everywhere he went.

I know a lot of Mormons, and they are almost universally nice and respectable people. I just wish for once that they would own up to their somewhat sordid past.
