Superb LDS film
This movie was something to enjoy. Of all the LDS films, this is one of the greatest. The performance by the man who played Joseph Smith was so believable and true to life; I have never seen an actor do so well playing Joseph Smith. The music is absolutely beautiful. The best score of an LDS film I've ever come across, and that is saying something because of my extensive background in music. The PG-13 rating wasn't needed. It was somewhat violent, but not enough to get that rating. The church's films 'Legacy', 'The Lamb of God', and 'Finding Faith in Christ' have just as much graphic violence. The violence was indeed needed to portray what happened to Joseph and the rest of the Saints. Overall, this film was brilliant. The only flaw is some of the acting. there weren't very strong performances by Nathan and Lydia, but I suppose they weren't given the chance as much.
