I don't think number two is as good as number one, but it's still entertaining. We get to go deeper into the Steed family's lives. We've moved on from Nathan and Lydia and into more aspects of the early Church history. Not to say that I don't like the love story between Nathan and Lydia, but since the producers for some reason chose another actress to play Lydia, her character has kind of gone downhill a little. Aside from that, we get a powerful performance from the actor who plays Joseph Smith and also from the actor who plays Joshua.
A driven follow-up to the first Work and the Glory. It will be hard to fully judge the the emotion on this one, until the 3rd one comes out as this feels like act 1 of a 2 act play with part 3 wrapping it up. The storyline's are being built up, until the cliffhanger ending leaves you wondering. The actors portraying Joshua and Joseph did a good job with their increased roles in this film. It is well put together for what could have been a "docudrama" with real history tied around a ficticious family. The sets and acting are good enough to pull you into 1830's america. Anyone with an open mind to look past the religious overtones will recognize a piece of American history and how the pioneers dealt with the persecution.
