Taken strictly as a Cinemax-grade potboiler, "Missionary" is often a hoot, and more effective than it has any right to be.
This lean thriller deftly shows how the fervency needed to wholly embrace any one belief or institution can, if unchecked, yield dire consequences.
A Southern Gothic thriller that begins on a high note but fails to deliver.
The tension in Missionary is surprisingly effective, especially given how easy it should be to put out an APB on a guy on a freaking bicycle ...
Missionary plays exactly like Fatal Attraction, with an obsessed Mormon missionary rather than the big-haired Glenn Close.
Things spiral downhill in predictable fashion, squandering a premise about faith and temptation that should have been much edgier and more provocative.
Little more than a pallid gender-reversal version of 'Fatal Attraction' with an unseemly religious twist...at best cable-TV fodder.
The movie may well appeal to Mormon audiences because the plot directly incorporates the tenets of their religion. They may also pick up on thematic cues not apparent to non-Mormons. All other audiences will see it as a generic, unconvincing thriller.
Slick, sordid, generic, and as it comes apart it flirts with some pretty serious Mormon bashing, for good measure.
A well-made but generally predictable next-gen Fatal Attraction.
the divisions in America's culture wars take on dramatic form before our eyes, and two very different models emerge of the American family and its future: one a deluded dream, the other a compromised reality.
