      Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel Unless the filmmakers can heighten the drama (this was filmed and rushed through editing) and ratchet up the emotion, these movies should go straight to video, or a Mormon church near you. They aren't effective outreach, or entertaining drama. Rated: 2/5 Oct 21, 2005 Full Review Jeff Strickler Minneapolis Star Tribune To call this drama heavy-handed would be stating the obvious. Rated: 2/4 Oct 20, 2005 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 28, 2006 Full Review Bruce Bennett Spectrum (St. George, Utah) While a minor improvement over its promising but sluggish predecessor, "American Zion" despite its authentic look, feels shallow and hastily edited. Rated: B- Nov 13, 2005 Full Review Audrey Rock-Richardson Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah) Scales back on the fictional characters and focuses on the more interesting historical figures. Rated: B+ Oct 30, 2005 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com The movie looks good, but it has that feeling of a pageant or passion play put on every year during the holidays, just on a bigger scale with more money. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 26, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This is the best of The Work and the Glory trilogy. You'll probably like this movie if you are a religious person. It's very heartfelt and has a good story about redemption. Good movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked this one pretty well actually Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Like many "bridge" movies, this one had the least going on of the trilogy and strayed from the book quite a bit. It was "ok" Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't like that Tiffany Dupont wasn't in this movie. What's up with that? Other than that, it definetly had my attention and made me want to jump out of my chair and go rent the third one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member part two of the work and the glory movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Ooh, much more dark than the first. The characters are more believable in this one and the world their in is also more believable and natural feeling. The ending leaves you hanging. Better than the first one.
