While a minor improvement over its promising but sluggish predecessor, "American Zion" despite its authentic look, feels shallow and hastily edited.

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.

An awkward mix of fascinating history and tepid fiction.

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.

To call this drama heavy-handed would be stating the obvious.
