Synopsis


Richard Dutcher writes, produces, directs, and stars in GOD'S ARMY, a fish-out-of-water religious drama about Mormons pounding the streets of Hollywood, looking to save a couple of souls. A small town elder journeys to the big city and joins a missionary group led by the gruff Marcus Dalton (Dutcher). Together, they go door-to-door trying to convert people to their faith, Mormonism. Just when he's about to hang up his necktie and starched white shirt, he learns of the hardships that the others have endured -- Marcus has cancer, Banks, an African-American Mormon, was disowned by his family, and others have been harassed by nefarious anti-Mormon intellectuals. Soon, the young man learns that the first person he needs to convert is himself. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Reviews


"Following on the heels of last year's The Omega Code and a renewed fervor of religious fundamentalism, the Mormon-themed "God's Army" emerges as an earnest and good-humored entry in the sub-genre of self-distributed films centered on religious dogma. A niche item if there ever was one, pic will undoubtedly meet with its warmest reception in the local Utah markets where it has been playing for the last several weeks. Scheduled nationwide rollout this summer seems a more optimistic and potentially dubious prospect, though unknowing auds who stumble in will find themselves pleasantly surprised by the film's gentle approach." ~ Scott Foundas, Variety
