My family and I greatly enjoyed this movie!
This movie is very tender and spiritually inspiring, as John Groberg shares some of his traumatic and faith promoting experiences, while serving as the Tongan Mission President in the 1960’s. He had been asked, by our Prophet, President Hinkley, twice, after serving as a Tongan missionary and later, after serving 3 years as a Tongan Mission President, to record his experiences into books, which each later were made into a movie. He leaves a great legacy of faith, dedication, and inspirational leadership by love.
Probably not a movie the irreligious would enjoy! All others will be inspired by the theme, story lines and acting.
It was pure manipulation without any enlightenment or depth.
Reminded me of what great family entertainment used to be. In the category of "Its a great life": uplifting and inspirational.
Excellent movie about faith, faith conflicts and overcoming religious bigotry. Best family movie we have seen for years.
Bad acting, bad story, bad cinematography, I left half way through. Drivel at its worst.
The movie comes on like a typical Christian movie, but it's a Mormon movie, they make sure to show the punishment of Christians and the act of calming the waves by praying to their god (little "g").
Good acting, realistic special effects, a family friendly movie without swearing and sex.
Great spiritual movie and continuation of #1 loved it.
Could this be the worst movie ever seen? Maybe.
It was heartwarming and inspiring showing the remarkable faith of the Tongan people and of John Groberg and his wife through the trials they endured and the miracles that transpired. It was a movie well worth seeing!!
