Critic Reviews for The Mission

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

The Mission feels too subversive to be noticed.

January 25, 2022 | Full Review…

Bland and short on insight, Tania Anderson's debut feature offers a superficial look at young U.S. Mormons doing missionary service in Finland.

January 24, 2022 | Full Review…

The Mission avoids any real introspection and never seeks to address [certain topics]. Anderson's film offers a curious peek behind the curtain, but anyone hoping for more than just a fleeting glimpse will likely be disappointed.

February 2, 2022 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Anderson's incredible sensitivity lets personal epiphanies steadily accumulate in power, yielding a film in which the particulars of a religious practice may be fascinating, but the process of learning to have faith in oneself is even more compelling.

February 1, 2022 | Full Review…

What makes "The Mission" so compelling is that Anderson doesn't take sides - this is neither a screed against religious neo-colonialism, as the church's detractors may put it, or a church-produced film about how wonderful missionary work is.

January 29, 2022 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The Mission seems stuck in presenting the most conventional version of itself, even as interesting insights appear at the edges.
