Passage to Zarahemla

Enjoyable for LDS film fans

LDS film fans should enjoy this adaptation from director/actor/writer Chris Heimerdinger. It’s a little amateurish in spots, but it turns out better than a space-time adventure-comedy featuring a Nephite, Gadianton robbers, and a Latino gang from L.A. has a right to be. Shot mostly in Leeds and featuring better-than-respectable acting, (no surprise if Summer Naomi Smart is a star someday), the film is funny when it should be and not preachy where it shouldn’t be.

Grade: B
Rated PG-13 for violence
