Amazing story, serious technical issues
11 April 2016 | by brennantolmanmediaSee all my reviews

The storyline of this film was so much better than the original. I loved the depth and back story given to Jimmy, Pam and Todd. The music was fantastic, and was very enjoyable to listen to.

That being said, the movie suffered from serious technical errors that made it hard to watch until you were finally used to them (aka the last 30 minutes of the movie). To name a few, the dubbing was terrible, the entire film appeared as if it was shot hand-held, and the angles of the actors/actresses faces were not flattering in the least bit (tons of double chins). There was no headroom and the closeups of the actors were WAY TOO CLOSE UP, making the audience feel like they had to run to the back of the theater to get away.

There were certain dialogue scenes in which there were many sudden cuts that were confusing. Certain actors didn't read their lines well or act their parts well at all, making some scenes very uncomfortable.

As bad as some of the technical aspects were, the music was great and the message was greater. If the technical errors were fixed before this movie was released on DVD, I easily could see this film being bought by many LDS families all over the nation.
