The great disappointment
27 November 2016 | by mikahulaSee all my reviews

We are urged to get a copy of Tell The World and the Great Disappointment of 1844 BUT what about the Directors Great Disappointment of 2015. Producers hang your heads in shame for ruining an excellent story line in this movie. It is not hard to pick the professional version. Well done to Kyle for his passion, dedication and hard work. What a great pity nobody gets to see his version. The lengths some Producers go to for recognition and self gratification. Again I say Shame on you Producers. The movie was factual but could have done without the hot air balloons. The acting was superb and brilliantly directed. The length of the producers version is far too lengthy.
