Intriguing look at a legendary organization
The film's opening scene had me glued to the screen, and I was pleasantly surprised to be so enthralled.
While much of the film is a slower, steadier pace, the filmmakers don't dumb down the finer details of Freemasonry. It's one of the more informative and specific portraits of Freemasonry that I've seen. (Rather than just saying "it's a secret society" and leaving it at that.)
The film is well-shot, and I appreciate the beautiful Salt Lake City location as I don't see many films set there.
The acting gets a bit stiff at times, and the plot becomes slightly choppy near the end, but overall I feel it was worth looking at.
