ReviewSource Variety
Review A bloody but little-known chapter of Mormon history gives director Christopher Cain plenty of ammo for a stinging attack on religious extremism in "September Dawn." With one eye fixed on current world events, this handsome indie Western damningly recounts the 1857 slayings of 120 settlers passing through Utah, but the didactic presentation, grim speechifying and tacked-on love story all signify a less-than-healthy regard for the audience's intelligence...Taking a page from "Titanic" and "Pearl Harbor," Cain and co-scenarist Carole Whang Schutter have cooked up a doomed romance as an easy point of entry for young auds in particular. Pic otherwise aspires to a certain degree of authenticity, especially in its climactic re-enactment of the Mountain Meadows Massacre, details of which were drawn from the written confession of John D. Lee...Well-scouted Calgary locations are beautifully photographed by Juan-Ruiz Anchia, showing off sun-dappled pastures and mountainous landscapes to good effect, though a dearth of establishing shots deny the pic a coherent sense of geography. William Ross' elegiac, sometimes overpowering score provides sturdy support throughout.
