Trivia

Before being retired, this film was shown as part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple endowment ceremony, one of the religious rites of the Church. Since only Latter-day Saints are allowed in the Church's temples, very few people who are not members of the Church have seen this film, and younger Church members have never had the opportunity to see it either. It has not been used in a long time and should not be confused with the video-taped versions that have replaced it. Each of the current versions not only have completely different casts, but their content has been considerably altered to conform with the various changes in the endowment ceremony made since 1990.

Nothing a good old whitewashing can't take care of
23 February 2018 | by anyonehaveanswersSee all my reviews

Honestly, this movie is just bad the whole way around. The production quality is terrible. the script is dated and even though being updated, it still just blows.

The honest thought that Jesus was white (like old Michael Jackson white) is just absurd. He was from the middle east, he was not pale white like this film wants you to believe.

Then the whole fact that Jesus sends his disciples down to Adam and Eve, they are able to shake hands and all, load of crap. These guys have not even been on earth yet to have a body, and if you ever learned the crap from Joe Smith, if they are not a resurrected being, they cant shake hands. So right there this movie contradicts the exact teachings that come from the church that produced it.

Lets not forget the total cost of viewing this thing too, 10% of everything you make. No, not $10 like a normal movie ticket, 10% of EVERYTHING you bring home in the form of a paycheck (this also goes against what Joe Smith taught, but that's a topic for another discussion).

The movie itself is so boring, that watching it causes at least one person in the theater to fall asleep every showing. The only saving grace is the small workout routine that you get having to stand up and sit every so often. But the clothing that you put on by the end of it (yes, it has you get dressed while going through it) is just ridiculous.

For those of you who want to see this film without the 10% income charge, youtube "New Name Noah" and you can find the whole thing for free.
