Plot Summary
Life as a Mormon missionary isn't what 19-year-old Brandon Allen expected. Los Angeles is as unrepentant as Sodom and Gomorrah. He's forced to share a small apartment with five young prank-loving missionaries and, to top it off, his first companion Marcus Dalton proves to be a harsh mentor. Allen is ready to hang up his necktie and go home, but he learns that the time has come to put away childish things, and to become more than just a man.

Ratings & Reviews

  • In its zeal to counter the negativity usually found in depictions of Mormons, God's Army eventually succumbs to overearnestness, sentimentality, and cliche.

  • Its intriguing subject matter is diluted by too many bland performances.

  • Not everyone will be comfortable with a story that's as geared toward recruitment as any Army film, be it God's or Uncle Sam's. show more
