Moviegoers of any (or no) religious persuasion can share in the simple satisfaction of his tense, well-spun murder mystery.
Reminiscent of classic old Westerns.
The happiest marriage yet of the disparate propagandistic and narrative influences inherent in the subgenre of "religious" cinema.

Brigham City, like "God's Army," may proselytize for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but Brigham City is also an example of concise, skillful filmmaking.
TV Guide Magazine
A mystery that's filled with genuine sorrow and capped off with a denouement that may take even seasoned mystery buffs by surprise.
New York Post
Tries, with much less success, to do what "Witness" did in exploring an Amish town.
A good-faith effort, if not completely successful.
Christian Science Monitor
Few movies have sought this particular blend of detective-story melodrama and religious sensitivity.
