Did You Know?


While filming this movie, Summer Naomi Smart, playing Kerra Mcconnell, was also in the theatre production of "Beauty and the Beast" at Tucon, playing Belle. Summer would have to leave the set of Passage to Zarahemla every night for almost two months at six o' clock to be in the play. There was one night where she let her understudy play, so she could shoot night scenes for the movie. For almost two months, Summer only got three or four hours of sleep a night. See more »

They ought to put a warning on movies like this: THIS IS FOR BELIEVING MORMONS ONLY!

My wife and I scanning the net for entertainment got sucked into this mish-mash of bad acting and Mormon fiction. We have it all for a maudlin young folks story, the misplaced, unwanted kids with an erstwhile older non-druggie teen age sister and a potential gang- banger little brother who escape the government incompetent and uncaring bureaucracy and gang violence to come to the warm caring bosom of Mormondom with large families, doting parents and a wise grandfather steeped in Mormon mythology. Add some Aztec-like other- world fantasy characters from that great work of Joseph Smith fiction, mix it up and bingo! You got a movie to entertain young Mormons.

Mormons will love it, as indeed, the two true believing reviewers posted here did. Non-Mormons like myself will likely not be able to sit through all the pablum and fantasy passed off as "truth" to the end.

My objection here is not just based on passing off a set of myths and pseudo-history of a large religious corporation with documented cultic origins as fact: we're free to express whatever beliefs we want under our rights and liberties of freedom of religion, speech and social media. My review is based on the bad acting, the doggerel story line and the corny premise used in writing this mongrel of a movie.
